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...

Re: Malahini from MD

That’s a cool anchor!

Back to insurance - I’m now being asked for a survey in order to get an appraisal price... any recommendations or experience? I’m not sure the insurance company know what they want...

Re: Malahini from MD

So I took her out again this weekend on the Potomac - man it was bumpy - no real wind to speak of but there's a lot of traffic and the river never seems to be calm. Hitting a 1-2ft wave at speed in the Malahini is not particularly comfortable! I still don't have a good video so I guess I'll have to ...

Re: Malahini from MD

Today was a good day. Took Mandi (with a heart over the i) out on the Potomac, put her in right by the pentagon at a cool private marina where you can pay $10 to use the ramp and park. Their machine was broken - the dude who worked there said “don’t worry about the money man, go have fun”. It was fa...

Re: Malahini from MD

yeah...I suspect that if I'd just put "wood" it would have been ok. State Farm have given me coverage - at least for now! Hoping to head out this weekend.....

Re: Malahini from MD

Just a post for information - I tried to get insurance from Hagerty yesterday - and got the reply that they don't offer insurance for boats where the hull is constructed of fiberglass over plywood - not sure if anyone else has run into this.

Re: Malahini from MD

Quick question - has anyone made up a capacity plate for a Malahini? - I just hoped someone else has done all the calculations - or had a point of view on this
