Re: Greetings From Ohio

The Malahini is a flat bottom design with very minimal vee shape in hull aft of the bow, best suited for more calm waters. The Roustabout would be much better suited to Lake Erie of the two with its Deep Vee design. You might look ...

Re: modified malahini

... to take the hull bottom from a donzi 16 and the upper part from the Malahini. Fits together nicely. Donzi plans are very basic as far as internal structures to make hull sound. Will use roustabout plans for internal parts especially transom (both say up to 135hp) as ...

Re: METHOD FOR CUTTING OUT FRAMES - Roustabout

... they will get filed, planed and sanded to final shape so I didn't worry too much during the cutting stage. I think a good saber saw would work. ... probably not hurt the strength or look of the boat. If I built another Malahini, I'm sure it would not come out the same as my first one.

Re: METHOD FOR CUTTING OUT FRAMES - Roustabout

Re: Malahini or Roustabout? Bob in Poway, CA

Bob, I built Mahlahini and the guys are right. It's a smooth water boat. The roustabout would definitely be a better choice from a ride comfort perspective. When I build another, it's gonna be the roustabout for that very reason. The deep Vee will require more ...

Re: Malahini or Roustabout? Bob in Poway, CA

My 2 cents is to go with the Roustabout deeper V hull design. Weather can change faster than you can get back to shore and the V-hulls can handle that a lot better. Malahini is a pretty shallow hull... not really what I would ...

Bob

I think you'd be much happier with the deep vee! It's not that big a deal in most lakes. But, the chop in a bay can get rough pretty quickly.
