Re: Southern Gathering (2016?)

I am planning to be at the Sunnyland show this year as well as a show in Ft. Myers on January 13-16th. I'll have my ZIP and a Glasspar G3 in Tavares and the ZIP and a Tubby Tug in Ft. Myers.

Re: Robert Greco Zip

Hi Guys, sorry I haven't been on the forum for a while but in the meantime we did build another boat! (this is definitely the last one, I'm sure you've heard that before!) To clear up the confusion, you guys are correct, we didn't change the length of the ZIP, but we did move the rear seat forward s...

Re: Two years, Two boats

That sapele plywood has a beautiful color and nice contrast to the okume - nice job. The next boat is going to be AWESOME!

Re: Zip construction complete.

Excellent job vupilot! Congrats on seeing it through. You are going to love the way it runs - just hope for a nice calm day. Even though I haven't been able to run my boat much since it's finished, the times I have run it on calm water have been a blast. It drives like a little sports car. I love th...

Re: West system 207 hardener?

It's not bad enough to redo the whole deck (yet), but we will definitely try just sanding first, however I think the blushing goes all the way to the wood, under the cloth. I wish West would put more info on the container about NOT using this product for a clear finish, but it does say it on their w...

Re: West system 207 hardener?

Experience is a cruel teacher. We used 206 on our deck because we thought it would be a clearer finish than the 207, and we wanted our white maple strips not to yellow too much. (The 207 has a slight amber tint). Now that the boat is a few months old and has had some sun exposure, we're starting to ...

Re: Mt Dora/ Tavares antique/ wooden boat show March 26-28

Looks like the food tent is the meeting place. I was checking the itinerary and noted that the amphibious cars put on a launch show at 1:00 PM. If we were to meet at 3:00 PM at the food area, it wouldn't be as crowded and we wouldn't miss the show! What do you all think? Or am I the only one interes...

Re: Greco ZIP Build - "The Finale!"

Thanks for the reply. Was it a product made for spraying over fiberglass. Is your boat entered in the show in Trevrse. Thanks Jeff It seemed to work well over the West System epoxy, but we'll have to wait and see how good it is over time. We will be in Tavares from Thursday to Sunday, displaying in...

Re: Greco ZIP Build - "The Finale!"

Thanks for all the great comments guys. No plans to go to Tennessee YET, but you never know. I'm looking forward to Tavares to meet you all, and I'm really looking forward to running the boat in the lakes up there. So far the boat has only been in the water three times, and it's been pretty windy an...

Greco ZIP Build - "The Finale!"

Hello fellow boatbuilders, here is the latest posting of our Zip build. "The Finale". The boat ended up weighing 940lbs with engine, full fuel, battery, etc, and it runs great. With 4 people we saw 32 MPH. Don't know what it will do with just me, everyone wanted a ride! Looking forward to Sunnyland ...

Hi Iggy, go to http://www.nymarine.ca/. The guy's name is Peter, and he has decals from every year. I picked 1969 Mercury 125 Hp decals because I liked the colors and the length of the decal matched the cowl of the 40hp merc on my boat. I cut out the 125 and had a sign co make new "40 HP".
