Malahini - 16' outboard - plan modifications

Post by zicolew12 »

Good evening,

I am interested in building this boat from scratch, but have a few questions to get my thoughts started:
1. Are these plans/materials suitable for saltwater ocean?
2. Can the plans be modified to extend the boat to approx. 18' or + 10-15%?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Z

the malahini doesn’t have much freeboard and the bottom is fairly flat. I don’t think it would be a great boat to use in the ocean

The malahini is a stretched version of another boat ( I don’t remember which). So it can not be stretched any further

Thank you for your feedback.

Are there any boats with a similar build that we can browse on this website for saltwater use? Or any others you would recommend. We only have access to saltwater ocean.

We decided to go with the Geronimo after further research. Just bought the plans and will review from there. Thanks!
