  1. I rebuilt a trailer years ago for an 87 Malibu. Did not come out as nice as yours. Looks great! nice work
  2. Looks great. Love when the older boats look cherry. Pride of ownership. I’m a fan
  3. Insane project. Thanks for sharing. This will be a great project for all brands here, not just Malibus.
  4. You said you are no photoshop guru... Honestly the simple screen looks pretty good to me, but if you want to help match something in your boat or whatever I can help.
  5. This is awesome. Thank you for posting.... it will almost certainly be a future project for me and I'm sure other. Can't wait to see it done!
  6. great question... we have boxers who occasionally go out with us too. I've read a downside is the darker colors can get hot in sun, but not sure about dog hair... Then others have said no heat issue. I guess if you easily remove the stuff then you could quickly rinse it off in leu of a vacuum
  7. What would cutting the plate do? I don’t have a center plate so I’m not as familiar. But I’d say if it works great then let it be. Mission accomplished!
  8. Guess that depends on what you are trying to gain by modifying it. I agree with @S2X, seems like you could have brought it straight out and down vs up and then back down. But the angles are hard to tell if that'd clear those turnbuckles. That plastic may never need replacing... but my A.D.D. would have me searching for mandrel stainless pieces that could be welded into a Y. I frickin' love that you made this BTW. It so hits the point of this website! Make your boat better. And I'm a huge fan of getting rid of exhaust.
  9. Awesome job. I'll post mine too... although my gelcoat was black and you can kinda see the cracks still even though it's perfectly smooth and was color matched. I think another summer in the sun will fix that though... and yes I'm the only one who even notices/sees it. Much better than cracks! Another good trick is to drill a tiny hole at the end of the crack, to keep the underlying crack from continuing. Then fill in with gel coat, etc.

    Homemade Surf Tabs

    Do you know anything about metal work, Jeffo? JK!
  11. I know he sold the boat so I doubt he’s still on the forums until he gets another.... but I think he got that from ultralon as well, it could be from just a sample sheet. I know agenda surf has small pieces you can order as well
  12. Nice work on this. That tower looks great as well on that boat. So is that a Monster Bimini as well? We swapped towers on my boat as well... took some work but worth it in the end. Thanks for posting this

    That. Looks. Awesome.
  14. Try contacting GLIDE Bearings about rebuilding / upgrading your existing rudder setup. It might be an option that will be worth it in savings. Tim is the man.
  15. Hey guys I deleted the boat pics in this thread (except the tube flying, cause that looks fun) because I don't want people to get confused.... We want the picture(s) of your boat in the Members Boats N' Wake gallery instead of in this thread. Thanks.

    I might be a little biased toward beer, wake garage and 247s, but that's a great picture.
  17. You could call or email them and point a link to these projects -- they should pay attention. I know people here and other sites were staying away from it after Hyperryd mentioned his diamond pattern peeling. If they now have a better product at a much better price than most, then perhaps they'll want to get that message out there? Worth a shot. Or just turn the page and get something else. I hear you on the teak... looks sooo awesome.
