Chug - you’ve got to go for the biggest and beefiest eye for the front of chug-a-lug. That would look awesome.

Great looking boat. You should be really proud of what you accomplished! You've done a great job!

Thanks guys. It was weird yesterday - I dropped her off and the guys from the boat store came out and said nice things - but all I could see were the bits where I screwed up or where I was too lazy/rushed. Next one will be better. :mrgreen:

Looks beautiful man. Very nice job on everything. You will not be disappointed with the engine your getting. Look at Biss’ post. I believe he said he put a 17p for his prop and said that worked great.

My boat is stuck in the shop - the engine install was supposed to be finished a couple of weeks ago - but the shop closed down because of COVID-19.... so I am stuck at home without any boat to work on! So thank you to everyone who's working and posting...it is keeping me entertained.

I’m really sorry to hear that, man. You would think they could open up to let you pull it home until this is over. This crap could take a while.
Hang in there buddy.
I haven’t been able to work on mine for the past month as my wife took command and we reworked all our bannisters (115 spindles and 60’ of handrail) just finished yesterday.
Now I can work on the boat until it gets nice outside. Then it’s some deck work and rebuilding an old shed,
Good time to clean up the shop with no boat in it. Keep busy, stay safe, and keep smiling. 😀

Thanks footer- I’ve been relegated to doing stuff around the house too. Our front entryway needed to be sanded and some old slightly rotten wood replaced. It’s not as much fun as bending plywood and fairing frames....

In the hope of improving my welding I’ve also welded every single piece of metal I can find to another piece of metal. It looks like abstract art. :shock:

Stay well all.

That is one pretty boat! Sorry she is stuck in the shop but it won't be for forever. I am sure you will forget all about this delay once you get her on the water :)

After two months of boat quarantine, she's back from the boat yard with the engine attached. I've now installed the seats, plumbed in the bilge pump, and put a name on her. A couple of things are still left - I have to finish the side panels and also make a cover - aside from that I'm waiting for the title and registration paperwork to be processed....then, time to get wet.

That is one fine looking boat! You've set the standard for how to do a wooden windshield frame, and the finish looks great.

One thing I was wondering about, as I looked at your pictures. How did you handle running lights?

Holy Smokes! You have created a beautiful Malahini. Look forward to seeing it in the water and the big smile on your face! Great work.
