Re: Michael's ZIP

Time to start adding shims to the floor battens. A warp in the board that I used for the outer starboard batten has resulted in a pretty considerable dip. I knew this was coming. Fairing has revealed just how bad the low spot is. It's in the forward part of the batten, between frames 2 and 4. Unfort...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Agreed! Im a big fan of that color, too... especially contrasted against wood with a nice reddish hue to it.

Looks great, Footer! Keep up the good work!

Re: Michael's ZIP

One of the fun things from watching other peoples’ projects on here over the years has been seeing all the variations of homemade longboards for sanding. Here’s mine. I got a drywall sanding block from Home Depot, took it apart, and re-fit the pieces onto a 18” piece of 2x4. Not sure how it’ll work,...

Re: Michael's ZIP

Either your chine is way bigger than the plans call for or mine is way too thin..... I did mine in a single piece - 1" nominal by 2", right? Mine are slightly oversized at 2-1/8 inches high. They're also 2 layers of approximately 5/8" or 9/16" thickness. Some lateral fairing still needs to be done,...

Re: Michael's ZIP

A few more progress photos. I worked on the starboard chine quite a bit during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Re: UK Zip Build

Looks great. It's pretty common to have to laminate that area of the chine. That's what I keep telling myself - it's not a bodge, it's an accepted adjustment :-) It's so common that I consider it simply part of the build. I'll probably have to add a little more to mine as well (again). No worries. ...

Re: modified malahini

Congratulations on the flip, Bryan! Kudos on creating a V-bottom for the Malahini. I'm really looking forward to seeing it in the water & how it performs. She looks great!

Re: Why Do You Come to The Gatherings?

The first Gathering I attended was G5, in 2011. It had been only a few weeks beforehand that I started getting curious about boatbuilding. The idea of building one of my own seemed like a far off daydream. I stumbled across the Glen-L website, and was shocked to see the announcement right on the fro...

Re: Squirt Chine Trouble-Fairing Questions

I agree with Chris and Neel — I don't believe you need to unfasten the chine. You have plenty of wood there to make a good connection. You can work to make the end result more symmetrical through fairing. This will mean removing proportionally more of the starboard chine than the port side, but as l...

Re: Michael's ZIP

The 2nd lamination of the chine went on in 3 sections. The aft section butts up against the middle section. The middle section straddles the scarf joint of the 1st layer, between Frame #2 and Frame #4. The forward section is scarf-joined to the middle section in the curve between Frame #4 and Frame ...

Re: G-13 Dates/Hales Bar cabin booking instructions

Okay... a little update on the design. I added the years for Ken, 1942 – 2018 (Thank you, Gayle!). I also repositioned the Tahoe (yes, that is Butch) so that the overall illustration could be enlarged in proportion to the text. The lower position of the Tahoe left the back of the Belle Isle a little...
