Re: Florida Malahini Build

I had that exact ladder and bracket on my Malahini, mounted in the same spot. Just so you know, here’s what happens when you forget to pull in the ladder and hit the throttle.

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Keep your fasteners away from the leading edge of the stem so you hit them during fairing.
PoxyGrip would be great for joining the stem halves. And as far as fastening, Screws, nails, or just epoxy only....that stem ain’t coming apart.

Re: Okume 1088 vs Meranti 1088

Baron I've seen birch plywood for cabinet work. I don't know if it was Baltic. It was good looking material. I don't know about the glue. Bill Bill, I tried some of that nice looking 1/4” Birch plywood, it’s crap. Your suspicion about the glue was right on, I could peel off the birch layer with my ...

Re: Annapolis barrelback 19

With 5-6” wide planks, you’ll need about 250-300 ft depending on the lengths. Longer planks will produce more waste in the bow area. My experience says 1/8” thick will be a challenge to mill, anything less than 3/16” will starting tearing out through the planner. I used 3/16” X 8” wide and 13 ft lon...

Re: Epoxying plywood together

First I would encapsulate both sheets with Poxy shield or Silver Tip, something thin, let dry and then join them with Poxy Grip. If you don’t have Poxy Grip then thicken up your epoxy a little. I use a body filler spreader to apply Poxy Grip on large surfaces. Do not attempt on a cool day, it won’t ...

Re: Malahini from MD

Very nice cutwater. The eye bolt is only welded to the cut water, right? How long are those screws holding it secure. I would want them long enough to sink into the stem. People on the crank handle love to crank like it’s a competition sometimes.

Re: New Miss Chris build

It’s hard to say what is happening here, but something in your transfer technique is not producing the results you want. I’d sleep on it and focus my thoughts on keeping it simple because there isn’t much in boat building that’s complicated.

Re: Modifying the Tahoe 23 design

Increasing the beam is not recommended and moving a 700 lb engine and drive aft would make you a test pilot. Suggest finding a design suited to your specifications.
