Re: Hello from California!

You are welcome to stop by and look at my build, and discuss boat building anytime. Last weekend I had some time to go visit Jim. Wow his Neeley's Barrelback and it looks amazing! Seeing a wooden boat up-close is quite different than the pictures online. Jim loaded me up with tons of info and some ...

Re: Hello from California!

That Mark 58 is not a bad deal and would work for a Malahini build. So it looks like the cost differences is not so far apart for the extra 2 feet of boat. I will have to consider Zip CNC kit if I do the Zip. Hum choices. I looked up the folding hitch trailers and now understand how that could help ...

Re: Hello from California!

One thing I need to consider is the outboard motor costs. I see many of the Zip's have a motor around 30 hp and the Malahini's seem to be in the 60 hp range. I need to figure out a rough idea what the outboard is going to cost.

However I am 6 foot tall and I am sure the Zip cabin area is similar to a VW beetle interior. Some of the forum posts mention lake size as one thing to think about. I ...

Hello from California!

Hello, New guy around here, however have had "build a boat" on the bucket list for a long time. My Livesteam Backyard Railroading hobby has kept me busy for many years, but I am now itching to broaden my experiences with a boat build. Something that I can build that the whole family can enjoy. Also ...
