Re: Stephens Zip

I too used meranti/hydrotek, loved the look, i highly recommend using fine tooth blades in a jigsaw for cutting it, 36tpi or more, pretty clean cuts with those, i bought cheapie Ace brand blades, ran them till they started cutting slow then pitched them, they're cheap!

Re: New member from oregon

Another lake day! This time with two adults and three kids aboard, it took the 25hp a little longer to get on plane but it still did it with ease, once on top she still ran 26-27mph!!! Can you believe this merc! OUTSTANDING!
So much fun! 8) 8) 8) 8)

Same here, marked the floor with a sharpie, no anchors

Re: New member from oregon

So i think the final hurdle is clear for title and registration of my Zip, the oregon process is as follows. 1.) Pick up a homebuilders paper from any marina or dealer. 2.) Sign and notarize homebuilders paper. 3.) Have the vessel inspected by your county "marine sherriff" 4.) Snap three p...

Re: UK Zip Build
