Re: Outrage progress

Don't be afraid to use more screws to hold it down. Are you going to fiberglass the hull after your done?

Re: Hydrostatic paddle wheel boat

Sounds like an interesting setup. The mower engine might be a bit loud, but it definitely sounds feasible. Another option could be a DC motor with some deep cycle batteries. I'll be interested to hear of your final decision.

Re: Three years on...time for some repairs & changes.

Good information. I havent installed a boweye on mine yet. I'll do that this winter along with a cutwater. I was thinking of doing what you did and think I will do that now.

Re: Riviera seaworthiness?

I would think that's a good fit for that area. I see a lot of pics of them in rougher waters. Maybe there are riviera owners in that area that could answer that. I would suggest putting on spray rails. I take a lot of spray over the bow in my Malahini (low freeboard boat) and those in the back may g...

Re: Florida Malahini Build

Looking good. I'm curious why you didn't install a speedo? I didn't install a tach as per my engine guy and wish I had now. Just good information to have. What engine are you planning to put on it?

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Where did you find your bow light? I looked all over for that style and could only find some old used pitted ones. Bow is looking good.

Re: Malahini from MD

Looks like your moving along quite well. Interesting about the fisheyes. I had the same problem with my dash. I refinished it three times. Finally, I sanded it with 240 grit and then 400. The instructions on the Interlux say to clean the surface with their solvent (got it on Amazon). I used it and t...

Re: Malahini performance

Sorry to hear of the damage. On our lake there is always something floating in the water. Looks like your on the right track to fixing it.
Good luck.
Keep Smiling. :)

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I like the little 4" microfiber rollers myself, but that's just me. You can take a brush and lightly brush over it and get rid of them too. A trick I've used many times, is to take a small propane torch and quickly pass over it and it will pop the bubbles. Works Great. Some epoxy brands actually hav...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

After a month of waiting, I finally got my canopy. I have it mounted a little high and my lift isn’t level. Next spring I’ll fix all that. It’ll only be in for another month at the most.

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Pine Lake is an all sports lake in south western michigan. It is a 660 acre chain of four lakes connected by short channels. I live on lake four. It’s a fun lake with lots of great friends and parties. I’m not the most popular guy around, but Im finding I’m infamous now as the guy that built the woo...
