Re: Malahini from MD

Sorry. I should clarify - the u bolt has six inches of thread, so it is welded through the cutwater but the threads pass through it and through the stem, secured inside the boat. The screws shown on the cutwater are just securing the cutwater, not intended to secure the ubolt.

Re: Malahini from MD

Hi Matt - yes, you got it. There are six inches of thread I believe, so all the way through the stem and bolted on the other side

Re: Malahini from MD

Got the cutwater back with the u bolt welded into it. A couple of hours sanding and polishing later it was ready to install. After that I was finally able to install the gas tank. Not much left to do before I can't go any further without an engine. :D

Re: Malahini from MD

Thanks Carl - I just bought some polished 20ga stainless - cut with a jigsaw, bent it with a home made brake (a couple of heavy hinges and a 2x4 - which is about as professional as the barbie sewing machine I used for the upholstery), and trimmed to size using a grinder with a flap wheel on it. Supe...

Re: Malahini from MD

not much work this weekend - made up some stainless pieces to hide the frames as they pass through the sole.I also put the dials back in and wired in a couple of things that I hadn't done yet.

Re: Malahini from MD

Hi Andrew - the distance from the dash to the bottom of the windshield is about 15" at its widest point. I was thinking of putting a compass there, or a gps mount, perhaps also a rear view mirror (interested to know if folks find these useful). You're right - building it wasn't too bad - although I ...

Re: Malahini from MD

thanks guys. Yes, hoping for a launch in early spring - still having trouble with the motor. The fish camp motors mentioned earlier in this thread by Biss were a great deal, however Mercury's exemption from the China tariffs expired on Jan 1 - and because these particular motors are big imported fro...

Re: Malahini from MD

decided to finish the bottom of the windshield with stainless - looks good from a few feet away, so passes my test. Have been out in Las Vegas the last few days, joining my mrs on a work trip, so no progress beyond this.

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Agree on the fuller bits. For lubrication I dipped the tip of the SB screws in epoxy.... Seemed to work for me. Just make sure you don't need to take em out. :shock:
