Roberta, whenever someone is surprised that my boat was built in a garage, I show them your thread. If you bring it to the gathering this year, I have to make sure I'm there just so I can see it.
I would not recommend a Malahini for use on the Great Lakes. I have one on a lake that is 7500 acres. It gets windy on our lake and on the weekends, it can be spine crushing and I just don't go out.
