Re: Michael's ZIP

Got the stem attached today. I added a little extra blocking. It should be a pretty solid joint.

Since I had some epoxy mixed anyway, I went ahead and did a little encapsulation on the transom, too.

Re: New member from oregon

What I wonder is....

Is the link to the boat ramp video a hint at a first launch??? :)

Re: Michael's ZIP

Thanks Carl. Of course, now that you say that... I've decided to hold off on that encapsulating & primer work on the transom for now. I set the transom on the form last night, took a few measurements and centered it just to see how it would look. I couldn't resist going ahead and screwing it to ...

Re: Michael's ZIP

Slowly transitioning into the next phase of the build. Frames 2, 4 and 5-1/2 are all screwed to the construction form. I was very pleased with the centerline alignment of the stem. You can't really tell from the photo, but it was dead-on. Soon I'll epoxy it into place. Currently prepping the inside ...

Re: Monaco Caper

Look at that beautiful Monaco!!! Hey, I wouldn't worry about "...up to everyone's standards." I used to feel the same way. But, what I found is that the people I've met here on the forum & at the Gatherings... people who have stunning, amazing craftsmanship... have been as supportive o...

Re: New member from oregon

"Prolly Sync"... Hahaha I like your sense of humor.

I had considered "Miss Calculation" for mine.

She's a gorgeous boat, Joshua! From the pictures, it reminds me very much of Chris' boat. Absolutely beautiful.

Any chance she'll make it to the water this weekend? :)

Re: Utility build

Matt, That would really do the trick. In fact, that's how I had it installed originally. A little water got in, but it all evaporated by the time I got to the lake. The problem is the grade of my yard where I'm keeping the boat. There are exposed roots and a sharp upward curve where the back of the ...

Re: Utility build

The time finally came to move the Utility out of the garage in order to make room for the Zip build. Of course, I hate to put the boat outside. But, it's my most realistic option at the moment. I bought an Evelle cover from National Boat Covers, and added a cover post support from Bass Pro Shops. Th...
