Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

I haven't been kicking up too much dust lately. I think Rich has adopted cleaning up after me as a hobby. :lol:

Re: Zip

There isn't a lot to show on that floor timber and it is quite small. It is shown on the pattern sheet. I have attached a picture of my Zip construction on that pattern sheet. You can see the setpoint (top surface) of the timber as it is laid out on the Frame 5-1/2 pattern and the attaching fastener...

Re: Zip

The floor timber is part of the frame drawing and should be taken off of that. I don't think there is a separate drawing for the floor timber, like the stem or breasthook. I no longer have the plans, so I can't check. I'm sure someone currently, or recently building one, can chime in.

Re: I became a bionic zombie again...

Had my left knee replaced nearly three years ago. Therapy is rough, but do it as you will regain most mobility quicker and better. Kneeling is difficult to impossible for most people. I can kneel on the right knee and let the left sort of float in church. Getting up and down from the floor takes som...

Re: Cabin Skiff main beam broke from own weight

Not sure what you mean by "Main Beam". Maybe post a picture of the affected area so we could see construction and area of concern.

Re: Roberta's Zip for sale in Miami

I needed the room and wasn't having any luck for about a year on the market. It was sold to a friend of a friend and I thought a good home.

Re: Roberta's Zip for sale in Miami

For the record, I sold that boat, trailer and motor for $5000.00. I had around 11k invested in it not counting my time. While it is well built and appointed, no where near the asking price.

Re: Roberta's Zip for sale in Miami

Wow. It's not 80 hp. and I doubt it will pull two skiers. It's the Merc 500 I sold it with and it was finished in 2011. Robert Hegy is actually Ray Hegy and he is Richard's uncle. It is gorgeous, though.

Re: prop shaft engine flange

Get a bushing that fits in the set screw holes and drill smaller pilot divits. This will protect the threads in the holes. Then you can deepen the marked divits on a drill press.

Re: CNC Conversion

Since wood species and density plays such a big part on how the boats ultimately get finished, it is really difficult to predict how any given parts need to be cut in order to accurately cnc them. You could build the boat the old fashioned way and scan the parts as built into a cad program and still...
