Sashimi-panga22-Kauai

Post by Fonda@kauai »

Ok so I've been lurkin around for about a year now, just kinda watching your guys' builds and procrastinating. 2 weeks ago I fianally got my plans, yesterday I ordered my ply, and today I ordered my epoxy kit. It's my first build but I feel pretty confident. Still, kind of a big step to commit and buy it all at once! The boat will be named Malolo- flying fish in hawaiian. The paint scheme will be similar to familyman's OD18, and I'll have a T-top on her. Anyway it'll take about 3 weeks for everything to get here so in the meantime (after I finish painting the house next week) I'll set up my strongback and cut a few of the stations out of MDF. I plan on keeping a pretty detailed log and will start posting pics as soon as I start on the strongback, so stay tuned :D

I'll be the first to welcome you to the building group, Fonda! You'll be glad you got the big purchases done now, but don't think they're the last :D . You'll soon be buying tongue depressors, chip brushes, and sand paper in bulk lots!

Got to go catch some mahi!

Thanks Ross :D Your HMD is a beauty. Watching you build in guam is one of the main reasons I felt I could do it here in the islands. Caught a 46 lb. Mahi 2 weeks ago :wink:

Yeah kauai's pretty killer.The ono and ahi were good this year :D Last year's ahi run was the best seen in 20+ years. Saw many 200+ lb. fish 8O Just an idea Cracker, but have you considered naming her "the terminator" instead? 8)
