Re: modified malahini

don't overfill in enclosed spaces.will pop your boards loose.Might have to up heat.They say you save money by building your own boat.I Fibreglassed my boat in January so went thru 3 semi loads of wood for heating in boiler.At 1400.bucks a pop-wheres the savings?Sure is fun tho. :D

Re: modified malahini

Don't plan on reusing the mix container as that stuff gets really sticky and hard to get out of containers when cured.Not sure what happens in colder temps but foam in a can won't set up too much.Don't glue yourself together if you get it on your clothing :D

Re: seat backs

Wonder if anyone thought of trying a power seat base out of junk truck.Up-down-forward -back -tilt even heat to warm your buns on a cold day. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Re: Rub rail alternatives?

Thanks ,Bill.I had heard that he sold "Knot-so Fast" but not the big boat(I thought that one was metal)I had also heard somewhere,that there was a fire at a marina near there.Was hoping his boat wasn't there.Also knew he had health issues before this covid crap.

Re: Rub rail alternatives?

Saw this post on the web and had to search for it on here.Thought it might be a good topic to bump forward as I need the same thing on "Chug".Wonder how Tom is doing?Haven't heard anything on last e-mail quite awhile ago(before covid)Maybe Bill knows.

Re: Boat ballast

Yeah! When the waves are going faster than you,tends to broach a little -alot of steering correcting.I was just out to see if I would have problems.It took me 2 hours of chugging to get to that spot.There is a few islands with cabins nearby.I never venture out to the Big Traverse as there are no isl...

Re: Boat enclosures

:D After 1 year of use,zippers are coming a little loose from the sailrite fabric so HH-66 glue is not permanent .Had sewed with ordinary thread also and treated with HH-66 glued but still only held one year.Can't afford sailrite sewing machine so will have to hand sew zippers. :D
