Good afternoon everyone. I have been following GL since 1976 when my father helped me build the Malahini after school and rewarded my perseverance, buying a brand new Merc outboard to power it. After 2 yrs of effort and before completion after a water test I was offered a lot of money for the combo so I did my first boat deal. Got to sea lot of that runabout over the next 7 years as he was stored at an adjacent marina. Now I am back looking at a S&G sea kayak for the wife over this winter and I need answers. So thanks for letting me join and I am very impressed by the quality of the builds and attention to detail is amazing.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Unfortunately I don't have any Malahini pictures. To many moves to loose pics and not ever really into photography. MY dad had nice 35 mm SLR but wasn't available to me since in the 70s you didn't give early teenagers expensive electronics like is done today. None the less I am excited to be here and starting a project in wood.
