Re: Matt's Geronimo

If anyone is wondering how I've been able to get so much done lately it's because I lost my job about a month ago. So I am not some kind of super builder jist extra time right now.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Big day today. I finally got the floor "finished" with the help of my dad today. We went in and out of the boat about 10 or 15 times with that starboard section. Dad was a big help with that. Once that was dialed in it was almost perfect for the port side so I was just able to trace it out...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Zip ties and black plastic cable clamps where needed. Everything is nicely tucked up under the carlings.

Re: Stephens Zip

Welcome Stephen! Sounds like you've already got most of the woodworking skills needed to do the job. Fairing will be new but we've all been there. The zip is a great choice and a proven design. The only thing potential downside is that it is designed as a 15" transom and modern (non-portable) m...

Re: Squirt fun

This just highlights to me (once again) how ridiculous a most of the "Personal Watercraft" have gotten these days when you can have that much fun with 25hp.

Re: Hi from Maryland - building the Malahini

Wow I responded before the rest of your pictures posted. Looking awesome! If you build a motorwell like this: http://www.glen-l.com/modifying-the-mot ... all-boats/ then there should be no need to add extra knees.

Re: Steering for Zip

MarkNJ put a pulley steering system in his zip. The Seastar systems are reliable and safe. They come with a black plastic bezel to cover the large hole but a person could turn something out of some nice wood to dress it up. If I ever get a lathe I think that will be my first project.
