Hull is ready for covering, fiberglass & epoxy. Enclosed picture, little old, bottom is planked, screw holes filled, all faired now. Built with 5/4 mahogany and okoume plywood. Great deal on the 5/4 mahogany at '84 Lumber'.

Thanks 'Glen-L'! Couldn't have done it without you.

This is a "crawl before you walk, walk before you run" project for me, I'm looking ahead at building the "Hercules" next.

Fiberglassing the Malahini

All "planked" almost finished fiberglassing, 1 side to go! No time, no Poxy Shield, where does it all go? the time and Poxy Shield I mean!

I'm going to paint the hull but finish the top 'bright'.
