Re: Zip SA Build

I think if I were to build another Zip, I would build the single gusseted frame (original). The boat is so over strength as designed, it's amazing. A fact I have shared many times herein: When I flipped mine and drug it up on the trailer (where I did all the top side work). I was crawling around in ...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

I like the all ivory look. It'll let the eye really center on your woodwork. You could use stitch patterns to add visual texture.

Besides, it'll be more comfortable on a sunny day.

Great boat!

Re: Hello and boat selection

Welcome! I'm gonna suggest something else. Based on your "If you're going to go, then go big" comment (paraphrased) in regard to choosing an inboard design, then go as big as you can--those kids aren't getting any smaller. You have a space equivalent to a two car garage. The most common measurement ...

Re: Tug Along

Thanks for the replies!
I'll see if I can dig up that video.

The idea is still evolving.

Great boat!

I too have the same dive ladder in the same spot--toiled over that solution for a long time. And..., we never get into the water anymore.

Re: I will be turning wood into a Cabin Skiff soon...

What a wonderful place these forums are... I was just lamenting how rarely someone documents a stitch & glue build here on the forums moments ago, when I posted about my interest in building the Tug Along. Then, the very next post is of a stitch & glue build that has until now, eluded me. To address...

Tug Along

As I zero in on my re-decking task, I am considering joining the ranks of those elite few who have built multiple boats. I'd LOVE a tug style, but each has it's quirks and challenges. With all the considerations of storage, trailerabilty, my local waters, etc., it's tough to find the perfect design....

Re: 'Caulk' Options

Jim, My current deck is the one in my avatar. My new one will be this. Not exactly 'classic'.
If my plan fails, I may try a traditional caulk after all.
I feel a test board coming.

Re: Removing the Sole

Carl, My floatation foam is not under the floor anywhere, so that is no concern. As for the water slapping the hull, I rather enjoy that sound as only a wood boat can produce it. GD, I studied your floor carefully many times and admire your solution, but if I am to have a curved floor, I'd just as s...

Re: 'Caulk' Options

Thanks for the advice fellas. Great bar GD! Jim, your process pics are great! Cutting grooves into my existing 1/4 deck was my original thought, but cutting perfectly straight lines would seem more laborious than laying boards. My inclination at this point is my 1/8" ply option. With a groove depth ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

A 1/4" hole drilled from the lower inside corner of the window frame (lowest point) downward and outward could be lined with a thin-walled non-ferrous tube like copper, or aluminum and finished attractively where it would be visible on the outside. Such a tube epoxied in place would protect the wood...

Removing the Sole

I was surfing the Zip pictures here on the site, as I have a thousand time before, when I stumbled across the photos of when Mark Shipley brought his Zip down to the Glen-L office and met Glen. As I've stated before, Mark's build choices heavily influenced and informed my own in many ways--chiefly, ...
