Re: Malahini from MD

I've been offline for a couple of weeks - actually been in the keys running around in a plastic boat doing some fishing and diving. The insurance saga continues...not sure how it will shake out. I found a company that will do an appraisal for the boat for $300. That might be the route I end up takin...

Re: Malahini from MD

That’s a cool anchor!

Back to insurance - I’m now being asked for a survey in order to get an appraisal price... any recommendations or experience? I’m not sure the insurance company know what they want...

Re: Malahini from MD

So I took her out again this weekend on the Potomac - man it was bumpy - no real wind to speak of but there's a lot of traffic and the river never seems to be calm. Hitting a 1-2ft wave at speed in the Malahini is not particularly comfortable! I still don't have a good video so I guess I'll have to ...

Re: Malahini from MD

Today was a good day. Took Mandi (with a heart over the i) out on the Potomac, put her in right by the pentagon at a cool private marina where you can pay $10 to use the ramp and park. Their machine was broken - the dude who worked there said “don’t worry about the money man, go have fun”. It was fa...

Re: Malahini from MD

yeah...I suspect that if I'd just put "wood" it would have been ok. State Farm have given me coverage - at least for now! Hoping to head out this weekend.....

Re: Malahini from MD

Just a post for information - I tried to get insurance from Hagerty yesterday - and got the reply that they don't offer insurance for boats where the hull is constructed of fiberglass over plywood - not sure if anyone else has run into this.

Re: Malahini from MD

Quick question - has anyone made up a capacity plate for a Malahini? - I just hoped someone else has done all the calculations - or had a point of view on this

Re: Malahini from MD

Man Bryan...that is so incredibly generous! - I'm sorry for not replying sooner, I have been away from the forum for a few days. I'm consistently blown away by what a great group of people there are on this forum. Thank you so much. I (think) though that I've decided to have a crack at fabricating o...

Re: Malahini from MD

thanks all for the kind words! Lights: I have a pole light on the back for anchor/running - I have a small LED bow light, just in front of the center cleat. This is meant to be temporary - I want something a little bigger - but haven't been able to find what I want, which is old style but with LEDs....

Re: Malahini from MD

After two months of boat quarantine, she's back from the boat yard with the engine attached. I've now installed the seats, plumbed in the bilge pump, and put a name on her. A couple of things are still left - I have to finish the side panels and also make a cover - aside from that I'm waiting for th...

Re: Malahini from MD

Thanks footer- I’ve been relegated to doing stuff around the house too. Our front entryway needed to be sanded and some old slightly rotten wood replaced. It’s not as much fun as bending plywood and fairing frames.... In the hope of improving my welding I’ve also welded every single piece of metal I...

Re: Malahini from MD

My boat is stuck in the shop - the engine install was supposed to be finished a couple of weeks ago - but the shop closed down because of COVID-19.... so I am stuck at home without any boat to work on! So thank you to everyone who's working and posting...it is keeping me entertained.
