Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

After a month of waiting, I finally got my canopy. I have it mounted a little high and my lift isn’t level. Next spring I’ll fix all that. It’ll only be in for another month at the most.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

It’s a fun lake with lots of great friends and parties. I’m not the most popular guy around, but Im finding I’m infamous now as the guy that built the woo...

Local boat sales usually have a mounting plate they use to mount new engines. Maybe they will let you borrow it!?
The marina I bought my engine from, mounted it free of charge. So, I let them.

Re: Malahini from MD

So you’ve probably read my horror stories with engines. There are good old school engines out there, I’m sure, but the newer are quieter, more efficient, and more reliable. Good news for me is the old and new school engines all bolt up with the same bolt pattern. I bought the standard thrust Merc 60...

You make it sound so fun. Hope it didn't do any nerve or tendon damage?! I sharpened my knife to a razor edge and proceeded to stab a 1" hole in my leg. Yeah, so much for sharp tools. lol

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Awesome. I wish I could take my parents. We've been giving several people around the lake for rides as they all want to go.
Happy boating :)

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Biss, I have no Idea what my rpm's are as the guy that built my old motor told me I wouldn't need a Tach, so don't waste my money. Now I wished I wasted the money. I am going to put one in now. What does WOT mean? Sarnian, I've been researching those hydrofoils you bolt on your engine. May try somet...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

PERFORMANCE UPDATE! So, I pulled the old 65 Merc off my boat and installed a new 2020, 60hp, Standard Drive, Merc. A little comparison: The old school Mercs have a similar gear ratio to the Command Thrust Merc, roughtly 2.3:1, where the new Standard Thrust gear ratio is 1.83:1. So, the Command Thrus...

Re: What the heck just happened aka did I just turn it all into kindling?

Never give up, especially this far along. I concur with everyone else. If you faired off too much, rip a strip, glue it on, and fair it off again. But look at your print; I don't know that boat, but I'd bet that frame is supposed to be like that. Or maybe I'm not understanding what your really refer...
