Re: CRACKER BOX

Excellent video Fergal. Jimmy Buffett is always a good choice when you're going nautical. BTW, my mother in-law and father in-law have both kissed the Blarney Stone. My oldest daughter may have also kissed the Blarney Stone. I know she has a diploma from Guiness for pouring the "perfect pint". She a...

Re: Hello from North East Mississippi

Welcome to the group. If you lurk around here long enough you will be ordering plans and clogging up your garage for 12-48 months. Since you are talking about some restoration, you may want to check out what Retroman has done with boats he bought. He lives somewhere on Long Island and built a Glen-L...

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

Wow Roberta, seeing that really makes we want to just do something totally stupid...like build another boat :shock: I bought a set of the old style plans that were on sale a few months ago. I don't even remember which boat it was other than the fact that it is an inboard. On second thought, my garag...

Very nice and a very belated congratulations on the sale. Now we just need to see some photos of the new boat out on the water.

Re: Is the Malahini made for the sea?

I agree with Bill. It will be VERY uncomfortable and you'll be VERY wet. As a Malahini owner, I would be afraid in the ocean if it were me.

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

Roberta, you are making crazy progress on this thing. I can't wait to see it flipped and see that shape start to show itself. I am a little confused though about the planking. Is this a cold molded hull, plywood or a hybrid? I was expecting to see lots of little diagonal planks. I went to the plan p...

Re: Malaheni question - Post build

I experienced the same thing with my Malahini. I have an E-Tec 90. I knew it was going to be a bit heavy in the rear and I placed the fuel tank in the bow area but left the battery in the rear. It still rearranged most of my internal organs on weekend afternoons when the water was a little rough. La...

Re: Malahini made into an inboard?

I've never seen it done, but I have seen some crazy things here. There is a guy who separated the top from the bottom of a boat and is bonding it to a Glen-L design. I can't remember which half he is using (I think the bottom), but I'm pretty sure it was a Century boat. So, I'm sure you could probab...

Re: stereo

I have a marine Pyle amplified system (no stereo or head unit) with a 3.5mm input. I use my phone and stream Pandora or whatever music is on my phone. Bill makes a good point: Make sure you get one with an auxiliary in jack so you can plug in your ipod, phone, etc. Since there are not too many stat...

Re: Tahoe 23 Georgia build

Good luck to you Brad. Keep the updates coming. BTW, I am very close to Suwanee and have bought lumber from them before. I have some plans around here for another boat, but I don't know if I'll ever get to it. What lakes are you near?
