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. The other thing I did was epoxy in a couple of pieces of plywood backer on the inside of the bow, so that w...

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:

Re: Malahini from MD

The very first thing I made - even before i ordered plans - was a steering wheel. I bought a metal steering wheel from eBay for about $15. Ground the wheel down then made a wood wheel to attach to it. I made it using some red oak steps that were left over from refinishing my basement. At the time I ...
