He had a little mishap and got paint all over sheet 3 of his Tahoe plans. I asked if the same information is on the larger plans (I’m assuming there are larger plans), or if he needs a new sheet.

Re: Québec

C'est dommage! Est-ce que vous pouvez voir la même information sur un des plans grands?

Ou avez-vous besoin d'un feuille nouveau?

Re: New Memeber from SW Geogia

Hi Phil, welcome aboard. You should definitely drive up for the boatbuilders gathering in September, and see some of these boats firsthand. That'll put a whole new perspective on things. It's held just northwest of Chattanooga, on the TN river. Another thing to consider is that it will take a while ...

Re: Michael's ZIP

I like Matt's cloth idea, too. Perhaps even something like a cleaning mop for a .410 might do the trick. I know I'll have to get up under the hull as soon as the flooring is on. In addition to keeping the limbers clear, I also want to clean the squeeze-out along the floor battens. This was (is) an u...

Re: Michael's ZIP

Not gonna forget the limbers in the floor battens this time.

Very easy job with the router.

Re: Beginner Questions

Welcome to the forum! If you like the Zip, but want to regularly carry 3-4 people, then i’d also recommend the Malahini. It’s in every way a more comfortable boat for that many people than the Zip. The Zip is a great boat, but think of it more as a 2-person boat with a back seat (kind of like a VW J...

Re: Michael's ZIP

Checking with my test piece of plywood, the fitting is pretty decent now from the transom forward to Frame #4. That's odd, (but also a relief), because the floor battens are anything but flat. I bought a 6-1/2 foot level so that I could check as much batten length as possible. The high and low spots...

Re: Michael's ZIP

I've made a little progress on that outer floor batten. After shimming it & fairing, the gap has closed up a lot. I'm currently working on high spots on the chine and the middle batten.

Re: Zip Floor

I've had the privilege of riding in both GDCarpenter's Zip (which has the Frame 4 bottom member higher than the floor) and Vupilot's Zip, which had the "inclining" floor boards that were even with the tops of the floor members of Frame 2 and 4. It was no big deal to sit with my feet past the Frame 4...
