Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Some photos of rough dry fit, not sure if the floor boards will run all the way in the center but will definitely stop at the front seats to allow for leg room. Lots of tweaking and sanding then take it all apart and epoxy. Meanwhile sanding the hull to get it ready for final coats of poly.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Cool seats! I am already almost done with the built in ones so I will have to find a position that works and go with it. I have adopted Biss style of seats. So many choices to make and I am always slow to settle on one and it really slows me down. I am always afraid to bite the bullet and go for it ...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Good point Bill, I spend a lot of time standing while driving my boat, also easier to dock.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

The side boxes sit against frame 1 and run to frame 3 and but right against the frames, at the widest point around frame 2 they are just under 6.5". The photo I posted with the seat frames was before my adjustment, the photo here shows what I will end up using. I to used the seat in my truck for ref...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Boat update; I remade the side boxes with marine ply. I was not confident about using the pine I made them out of. Also started working on the front seats, and the floor boards will be fir. The first coat of epifanes 2 part poly went on and I am very pleased with the result, I only rolled it no tipp...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Gas tank, stereo, and most wiring installed. I think I will put a finish coat on the outside soon as the weather is good for that now this way I will be able to put the hardware on and start the decking during the winter. Also need to start thinking about the front seats and trailer shopping. :D IMG...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Great idea footer, I will ask around our local marinas. Great info Biss, I will also start looking for an engine hoist I can borrow or rent. I have been doing lots of sanding getting the hull ready for finish coats.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

That's Great!! Looks like fun! I had a question for you since you mounted your motor yourself and I plan to do the same. I have the same motor except mine is a 2016, did you make a templet for the holes or just sit it on the boat and bolt it on? Also how did you lift it? I was going to get a lifting...

Some progress, motor well, some electric, backseat, and probably one of the most important parts of a boat the speakers.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

I am going to have the rear seat fold down but only for access to the side compartments, it will be tight but hopefully I will not have to access that part of the boat often. In the center behind the seat I plan on having a hatch for storage, and under the seat for life jackets and stuff.
