Re: Jet Zip build progress

Hi Dave, thanks again for your help. I've been really sick the last few weeks and now trying to make up for it at work so not much progress but hoping to get stuck back into it next week. Its killing me seeing it out in the back shed at work and not being able to work on it!!

Re: Jet Zip build progress

Hi Dave, thanks again for the info. I'm all ears and trying to soak up as much information as possible. After some more thinking I'm going to leave it close to where it's sitting now. One thing I would like to get your thoughts on is if you think I should have run the main stringers that I've added ...

Re: Jet Zip build progress

Hi Dave, nothing is fixed in place yet as it's just resting on those little timber tags at the moment. I've been using Shane Newcombes tiny might video as a bit of a guide I guess. I'm planing on laying the hull as per plans and then fair it in with foam. I didn't think 80mm was Much at all but can ...

Re: Jet Zip build progress

Hey Dave, It's around 80mm(Aussie!) from keel to the bottom of the ski hull from memory. I was trying to find a balance between keeping the intake low enough but not too mutch to make it too hard to fair in. A lot of guesstimating going on so fingers crossed! I'm just trying to sort out some support...

Re: Jet Zip build progress

Hey Dave, I think I got lucky with the hull shape of the ski as it gave me a level and straight line to cut. I took to it with the grinder before I had enough time to overthink and confuse myself!! Notching/cutting the transom was bit tricky but pretty happy with how it is sitting. I am a little con...

Jet Zip build progress

Hey guys, thought I would post some pics of my Zip project. Happy to move to Jet ski section but just figured most of the Zip owners hang out here. I'm grafting in a Yamaha xl1200 hull section and will be a single cockpit layout. I originally built to suit a long shaft 50 merc but just wasn't happy ...

Flipping a zip frame before sheeting?

Hi guys, just wondering at what stage of the build do you think a zip frame could be flipped or removed from the form without the chance of it distorting or springing out of shape? I have the chines, sheer and keel glued in place. I'm about to start grafting part of a ski hull in and need to modify ...

Re: Jet Zip?

Its shown in the customer photos section under Zips if you havent seen it. Hi mate any chance of a link to a jet Zip? ive been searching all over and have only...

Re: zip chine fitment

Thanks for the help Jimmy. For some reason I thought that if I sunk it completely flush in the notch then I wouldn't have enough meat in the middle of the chine to meet the bottom plank. It seemed a lot of the pictures I came across that the bottom edge of the chine had been left proud of the frame ...

Re: zip chine fitment

Thanks for the help Vupilot, so the edge closest to the keel needs to come down into the notch further? Love your Zip too mate.

zip chine fitment

Hello Gurus, I'm in the process of test fitting the chines on my Zip and thought I would get your opinion on how its sitting in frame 5 1/2. Its following the top side of the frame well but having a bit of trouble visualising how it should sit on the bottom edge (bot of pic) in relation to how it wi...
