Re: Malahini made into an inboard?

I would try to sell the project and give someone else a head start on a Malahini and then start an inboard.

Re: New member from Mountain Home, AR

Hello fellow Arkie, I live in Harrison and have a boat on Bull Shoals at Peel. You need to build a Malahini because I am about to pull the trigger on one too. I need the moral support! Welcome to the forum.

Re: Well, I bought my first revolver.

I belong to an airplane forum and have enjoyed it more than almost every other forum I have joined. One of the main reasons is the topic of discussion has to be about nothing but a specific type of plane and items related to that plane. There is no water cooler or off topic place to post other unrel...

Re: Well, I bought my first revolver.

More than one guy shot a hole in the roof of our range after he 'polished' his trigger. Especially shooting when your fingers are cold! Or your whole body is shivering. Stick with the 8 Lbs it came with and you'll never face anybody in court over 'modifying' a weapon. I am a tool and die maker and ...

Re: Well, I bought my first revolver.

Dave, I can't remember if I polished the trigger any or not but mine is very competitive in local shoots. The 4 inch barrel will hurt a little but mostly depends on the person doing the shooting.

Re: Well, I bought my first revolver.

That SA EMP is a very nice pistol Roberta. My son has that in a 40 caliber. I carry a Sig 938 9 MM myself just because it is a little smaller and I am height challenged to say the least and the smaller pistol is easier to conceal for me. My son is lucky as he lives in Oklahoma and they have open car...

Re: Well, I bought my first revolver.

I have a 686 with a 6 inch barrel. I bought it new about 15 years ago. I load wad cutters and shoot it quite a bit. It is by far my favorite revolver. Super accurate too. You are going to love this gun.

Thanks Bill. Working upside down shouldn't be a problem for me. I am a mold maker so everything I do is backwards or reversed. :)

Re: Baby Steps.

Received the book on Monday and read it cover to cover. There sure is a lot of information to learn. I think when I get my plans and study them things will become more clear. Looks like I will be reading a lot back and forth between the plans and book. It would help if I knew more about boat termino...

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

What would be a good choice to replace white oak? I am in Arkansas and am limited on sources for lumber.

Re: Baby Steps.

You are probably right. I am afraid finding the proper materials may be a challenge here in North Arkansas. We do have lots of white oak though.

Baby Steps.

I ordered the book yesterday "Boatbuilding with plywood" so I can learn what I am getting into before I order my Malahina plans. It might be good that I know what a chine or breast hook is before I start to build a boat. :mrgreen:

Re: Bittersweet I sold my boat

Seems like a common thread of building airplanes and boats. I knew Roberta long before coming to this forum from my time spent on the RV airplane plane forum. I will never forget the feeling I Had when I walked away from the plane that I spent nearly 8 years building after delivering it to the new o...

Re: Thoughts on Grizzly Tools.

I talked to a salesman at Grizzly about bandsaws one time and he told me some were good and some models were not. I forget now the ones he recommended.
