Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

I filled mine in after I as done with the hull and painted them brown. But I’m not done with my interior side walls and still plan to cover them with some stained mahogany.

Re: Downunder Monaco Utility

Will sure be some great memories for the little ones. I still remember riding in a steam powered, covered launch when I was about four years old (I’m 62 now).

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Thanks guys. I finally got to the point in my life where I could by my own TIG, but my hands are no longer steady and my eyes strain to see through bifocals. So, it was challenging for me. To avoid warping, I welded them in place, but had to run short beads. Even at that, there were a couple of poin...

Re: Malahini from MD

I put my fuel vent up and forward on the sidewall of my motor well under the overhang. It’s highly unlikely it will get water in it.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Cutwater. Tack welded, ran short beads. Ground down welds smooth. Buffed out the grinds, sanded with 350 grit, then 1000 grit, then 3000 grit, then 7000 grit, then buffed with stainless polish. Still have some fine polishing to do.
Then I have to install my eye bolt.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

I finally got some time (after catching up on a long list of honey do’s) to work on some metal. Got my transom bands done and my cutwater.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Looking great. It’s amazing how custom work is so time consuming. But, when your finished, it’s going to be something to be proud of. 😀👍

Re: Malahini from MD

I was wondering how your windshield was coming along. Looking great.
I see you went with single seats too. I think your really going to like that. I couldn’t be happier with mine.
Keep up the good work. 😀

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I had the same problem with my chines. The problem was always a knot or grains close to a knot. These areas are harder and more brittle and won’t bend at the same rate as a straight grain. The same holds true for scarf joints. Always try to put knots or joints in areas that are low stress. After bre...

Re: Florida Malahini Build

The price on Rub rail Is ok, but shipping is astronomical!
So, I went down to Alro steel and bought some 1/4”x1/2” cold rolled stainless strips and I’m drilling, sanding it a bit round and polishing it. It should look ok, and be in my tax bracket

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

I have a heated garage here in Michigan I keep at 55 degrees. Like you I found keeping my epoxy in the house until I’m ready to use it, works the best and it’s always cured by the next day.
