Re: New Member from Central NY

Zip is a little small for four. It will definitely hold four but not much else. Something the size of the Malahini or similar could totally replace that bowrider.

That's right. Forward of the transition point (where the plywood goes from a lap joint to a butt joint). I don't know if chine line is the right terminology.

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Looks right for a FF. Remember the actual chine line is in the center of the chine log (at least up forward).

Re: I will be turning wood into a boat shortly.

This is looking great! It took me four years to get mine in the water. I think you're doing fine. Just a suggestion, you can go back to the first post in this thread and change the subject. Maybe put the name of the design in there so that folks interested in the design can find it more easily.

Re: Small gas outboard or electric trolling motor?

A trolling motor is designed for low speed, relatively low RPM. More lbs of thrust is only necessary to move a larger, heavier boat but won't make the prop turn faster. If all you want to do is tool around at a walking or slow running speed a small trolling motor will definitely do the trick.

Re: Small gas outboard or electric trolling motor?

No matter how many pounds of thrust an electric trolling motor will only top out at about 5mph. So if you want to go that direction you might as well get a 30 or 40 lb thrust motor. An outboard sized appropriately would possibly get you on plane if the hull is capable of holding an engine with enoug...

Looking good! If it's too stiff you can wrap the chine in towels and soak it with boiling water.

The zip is a great boat. Welcome to the forum. Have you checked this page to see if you can find a supplier in your area?

Re: Matt's Geronimo

That's pretty sleek looking Neel. A nice change from the standard cast brackets that a lot of folks end up with. It does look a little fragile though. I wonder how sturdy it is.
