Re: Biss's Malahini Build

She floats! We launched yesterday around 2 o'clock at Lake Catherine State park. It was just me and my wife and we spent about 2.5 hours on the lake buzzing around until a thunderstorm rolled in and chased us off the lake. We had such a good time, you couldn't wipe the grins off our face! The boat p...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Well, I have everything pretty much complete on the boat. Got it insured thru Hagerty. That was a breeze. No issues at all! Followed up with registration which was also a breeze! Since the last post I cut the glass (lexan) polished the edges and installed. Also installed all the deck bling. Finished...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Thanks again, regarding the insurance, i just filled out their online quote form and they gave me a price. I still have to submit pictures. I'm assuming there won't be any hangups going forward, but I'll post if there are.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

I appreciate all the comments. So, looks like i will be insured thru Hagerty. The marine survey was way too pricy to be able to do the shelter insurance! With insurance I can go and get it registered. Hope to get that done next week maybe... I was able to get the transom bands on last night. They ar...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

So got my HIN yesterday! Engraved a brass plate and it is on the boat! Now I just have to get it registered with the DMV and get the bow registration numbers/validation tags installed. Still working on the insurance stuff. I have a quote request in to Hagarty. The Shelter quote is really reasonable ...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Anybody know anything about a "marine survey." My insurance agent with Shelter said I would need a survey before they could insure the boat...A quick google search describes it, but seems like its a little excessive for a small runabout.

Making those bends and cuts at the bow is not easy! Looks good.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Thanks, Yeah, I built this cajon back several years ago. I actually built two, one for a musician friend of mine and one for me. I am not a musician; however, it's still fun for me and the kids to break out our instruments and jam occasionally!

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Been working on the upolstery this weekend. Never done this before, but it seems to be coming together pretty well. I'm about 12 hours in it and I have everything stitched together and the foam cut to size, just need to assemble. I did test fit one of the front seats, looks pretty good for an amateu...
