Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Keith,
I was also looking at placing the tank more forward, I thought it would help with getting on plane. I am a long way from that so I can't wait to see what you come up with. John

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

I have managed to get the keel in place, with the knee. The weather has not been good and there is no heat in my shop so it has slowed me down. I need to get more lumber for the battens, sheers and chines. From research here I am assuming the best way to go would be to laminate the sheers and chine ...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

I'm not sure how my job expects me to work 5 days a week and build a boat at the same time. If I get an hour or 2 before work its a good day. I picked up the Mahogany boards from SJ Lumbermans in south jersey, this place is so cool like what you would see in an episode of American Pickers. Its on a ...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

So its been slow moving , work and life always seem to be in the way. I have been collecting items that will make the build more enjoyable. I found a scroll saw on a popular selling site for 20$, also from recommendations on the forum purchased a table drum/belt sander that I can already tell is goi...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Hi Biss, I have been following your build as you are quite a bit ahead of me. I was looking at the material list for the malihini and it suggests 1/4 planking for the sides and 3/8 for the bottom. My question to you is did you have any problem mating it up at the seam or do you just sand it down fai...

The Fletchers Malahini

This will be our second build (first one was a bullet), since then I knew I had another one in me. I am looking forward to taking this journey, it is so satisfying to watch it come together :D . There will be many problems to figure out, and many mistakes to learn from, I already know from my first ...

Re: Must have Tools

:D Thanks for all the advise, I will be using the combined knowledge and experience of this forum many times throughout my build. As soon as I have my ducks in a row I will order the plans. I am ordering the fastening kit through glen-l. I was also thinking about the building with plywood book but w...
