Enjoying our Malahini

Post by Howtam »

Finally finished our Malahini. It took 3 years to complete, although we did have to move 3 states away in the middle of the project, so that delayed it a bit. We couldn't have done it without the help of the Forum, and Gail at Glen-L. A special thanks to Roberta for her complete posts while building her Torpedo. Following her posts really helped when we had questions. It has an old 65 Mercury, and goes about 30 mph and handles great. We love it.

Welcome to the posting side of the forum. The boat looks great! Get ready for lots of questions. "Who restored it?" "My dad had one just like it, what make is it?" "What year is it?" "Would you be interested in selling it or making me one?"

Looks great. Nice job. I believe that is a Washington registration. Where do you keep and run your boat. Our kids live in the Seattle area.
