    T tops?

    Visit josh from JSMarine. He does awesome work. Not really a T-Top like Atlantic or Stryker, but in my opinion better. Top super sturdy. Here is a pic of the top josh did for me. Everything is custom and you can let him what you want or how you want it to look. .

    Good going with that ahi. It's great to see the 17 alii kais are getting their share of the fish. Stories like this gets me motivated to finish my 17 alii kai. Hopefully I can finish within the next 2-3 weeks and can join in on the fun.

    I'm rewiring my boat and was wondering how most people in hawaii have their setups. I have twin honda 50s with twin batteries. Do you use one battery selector switch or two? Do you just connect both engines to the "comm." terminal on the back of the selector (if using only 1 selector). The...

    Getting Closer

    As far as the fishbox, I went with 3/4" marine ply and 1" divinycell foam for the insulation. Being that I never did this before, I was debating if I laid enough glass down so I ended up laying down 3 layers of nytex. I later found out that this was overkill, but better to be safe then sorry.

    Thanks bigbamboo for the options!! I was also thinking of doing it myself and decided to do a test. I got a piece of plastic and painted it with some house paint and left it next to the boat.

    Anyone ever shipped a boat to Hawaii???

    I was planning on buying a 17' twin vee from florida last year. The boat was $7500. But the shipping would have been $8000, I called many places and it was still to high. So I said forget it and bought a 17' Alii kai here. Just like PhilF said, the price went up another grand.
