MALAHINI by Guy Young, Sydney, Australia

25 Aug 2006

G'day, I bought your plans for the Malahini on the 01 April 2006 and have completed the framework and I'm just about to put the planking on. Attatched are a few photos of the build so far.

I've used Hoop Pine for all frames, chine, sheer and battens. All the gussets, the stem and transom are made from Pacific Maple Marine Plywood.

As you can see by some of the pictures, I'm making this boat in one side of a double garage. As you can see it doesn't leave much room for working around the boat. The sheer and chine was interesting to put on due to the lack of space. It will be interesting to see how I go with the planking.
