Hello! I am planning on building a malahini. Working on getting the building area set up and then will get started! :D

Welcome! You've come to the right place. The Malahini is a great design and there are several builds to be found and followed here. Ask any and all questions you have because there is always someone here that can help. If you like, some highly recommended reading is the Glen L book Boatbuilding with Plywood. It's a great read and covers everything you'll need for how to build your boat.
Enjoy! And have fun!

Welcome, central Missouri has many nice lakes well suited for the Malahini. Pound for pound, it’s hard to beat a Malahini for inland lakes. It’s easy sheet plywood construction, roomy, economical and has attractive lines for a sheet plywood boat. Have fun, we’re here to help if you hit a snag.

I'm excited! Only problem I'm running into so far is finding supplies. I can't find African mahogany or marine plywood anywhere near me. I have a lot of white oak but I keep reading that it's not the greatest to build with. If there is anyone near me that can point me in a good direction it would be appreciated.

All my framing is white oak. No problems with it. Of course, if it all flies apart on Saturday I'll let you know.

I made my Malahini frames out of white oak, little on the heavy side, but many redeeming qualities as well. I, like many others, order my marine plywood from Homestead in one big bulk shipment. Shipping cost sucks but in the grand scheme a mere drop in the bucket.

It's not coming apart. But, do put the plugs in! OH! and unhook it from the trailer :!: That looks very bad. :oops:
