Re: For Sale 16' Malahini

Nice Malahini!

If you dont have any luck here. I had good results listing my Zip with Bringatrailer.com. You have to apply as they only list unique/collectible type vehicles and they have a rather detailed but proven process. Good Luck! Nice boat!

Re: Zip Hull Depth

Without the Skeg I calculate it would just fit through the doorway. My concern is how you could get enough places to hold it and get enough people around it. Bow would be especially awkward.

Re: New Member Here

Welcome! The world needs more Zips! You can definitely spread the expense out building from scratch. You can keep steady working going on just a couple hundred dollars a month pretty easily.

Re: New Guy

Welcome. A small stitch and glue boat is a great way to get started in boat building. Only recommendation is use good marine products. You probably don't need it for a simple 8ft boat but if you prefer books to the internet you might consider the "Boat-building with Plywood" book from Glen-L. Enjoy!

Re: Frame Wood Selection

My local supplier had 3/4" actual thickness African Mahogany in random length from 6-14 ft and width of about 7" to 14". Most were about 8ft and 7-8" wide. You just plan out the best you can. I had the luxury of having a supplier nearby which helped a lot.
