Re: Outrage progress

Hi Steve. Photo below - (before rub rail) - the easier part for me is that I had an additional layer of ~3/8" mahogany on top of the ply...so I don't know that this will be useful for you.

Re: Outrage progress

for what its worth - on a malahini - I just made sure the deck plywood edges were well covered in thickened epoxy and regular epoxy, then I positioned the rub rail so that it hid this. I didn't use cloth over the edge.

Re: Malahini from MD

Not the best video - but better than nothing I suppose! This was on Lake Anna in Virginia, which is an incredibly busy lake. More like a highway than a lake actually. This was the only vaguely quiet water we could find. https://youtu.be/cfbHNtjAwns I love my boat...but man is it not built for any ty...

Re: Malahini from MD

What size bimini did you get? Also, do you have a picture of it up? We boat in Missouri and it has been in the 90's all week. The sun turns the dark wood into a hot pad. I am thinking a bimini would help but want one that is the right proportion for the Malahini. I also have a fitted cover which wo...

Re: Malahini from MD

Hi Jim - yep, I'm happy. More by luck than design, its at the right height to allow me to look through or over the windshield and does a great job blocking the wind

Re: Outrage progress

that's what I did. I didn't get the angle quite right so they are a little high on the inside, perhaps an inch above the bottom of the bilge. With hindsight I am not sure I would do them again (or perhaps I would do them properly next time..).

Re: Malahini from MD

As requested - Bimini pics. I might have gone for the longer version - but this works. This is the 35" high Bimini, which still seems a little high. The long pole can be reduced by 10", which I guess would lower the top by ~7" or so. My wife (5'4") can stand up under this easily, so I guess the inte...

Re: Malahini from MD

Hi Bob - I used coverquest for the Bimini, aluminum frame with stainless steel fittings. I also bought the quick release pins so as to be able to remove the Bimini quickly. The size I got was Height 35" Width 67"-72" Length 72" Carver 7 oz. Sun-DURA. $500 all in. I will take a photo (have to pull it...

Re: Malahini from MD

I've been offline for a couple of weeks - actually been in the keys running around in a plastic boat doing some fishing and diving. The insurance saga continues...not sure how it will shake out. I found a company that will do an appraisal for the boat for $300. That might be the route I end up takin...
