Re: What? Hagerty doesn't insure plywood boats?

My Zip was also insured with Hagerty. Wonder if that is something new.

Re: Overniter Launch

Congrats! Almost the exact spot on the same ramp I launched my Zip from 9 years ago! Looks like the perfect size boat for your family.

Re: building the Sabotina transom.

I dont see any reason why you can't do what you are talking about. The building jig is there to help hold the frames and transom in place while the longitudinal's are put in place so you may find it to work out when you get to that point. https://www.glen-l.com/designs/hankinso ... pho-1.html

Re: building the Sabotina transom.

Cool project with your granddaughter. Trying to picture where you are at? Do you have the chines, sheer and transom framework in place yet? Or is this to hold things together until you can get the chines and sheer attached?

Re: New Member Maryland

I'm really excited to follow this build with the kit to compare to. I think it would be a great idea if you could just start a build log thread here. The only downside is you can only post 3 pictures per post here but that should still be plenty.

Is it a good place for some dock line chocks or a cleat?

Re: Utility build

If you are sure you are prepping the area well before applying I would be tempted to try a new can of paint as the next step. I know when using Interlux and old can doesnt go only nearly as well as a fresh can but in its case they both hold up fine, the old stuff just doesnt lay as smooth.

The Deep V has some definite advantages on waters that are typically wind blown or have heavy traffic.

Re: Hello from California!

I've got a video for that! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOhIPWxAOFU

4 adults, starts about 30 seconds in. The very last frame also shows it in the old 19.5ft garage.

That picture you posted of my boat is from the maiden voyage, that was my favorite picture from that day.

Re: Hello from California!

My Zip on the trailer with the motor hanging off the back and the normal trailer, not a folding tongue, it just cleared the door when backed straight into my 19.5 ft deep garage. Now, like you, I have a 24ft garage and I would think the Malahini would fit just fine.

Re: Hello from California!

You might also consider that Glen-L now just came out with a full CNC cut kit for the Zip that will likely cut your build time in half. The cost may look expensive but minus the shipping the cost of the kit is about the same as I had in all my lumber 10 years ago. So its kinda like they cut it for y...

Re: Changes

Dang, when did the new Zip full kit come out??!!! What rock have I been under? So glad to see Glen-L offer that. Good price too. I had just under than in all my wood 10 years ago and it wasn't perfectly cut to fit!

Cant wait to see what you do updating your boat Andy.

Re: Sabotina chines and sheer clamp size and fasteners.

You dont really want to use anything from Home Depot on a boat build unless you only want it to last a very short time. Look for hardwood lumber suppliers. Boulter Plywood in Medford would be a perfect place to go. Many here have mail ordered their lumber from them and youre lucky enough to have the...
