This is neat to see. A well enjoyed boat that has held up well. 9 years, kinda helps kill the myth that wood boats are all high maintenance.
The transition of your side planking looks ok to me. I never did exactly get a perfect "joint" it just kinda transitioned like yours does then I just made the bottom planking fit in the space not taken up buy the side planking. As for the bunching up, I like to clamp starting in the center...

For a long shaft motor on a Zip the motor will be above the motor well. Even when the motor is tilted up not much of anything will be "in" the well. The steering cable and rod would be above the deck so not a factor and no need to widen the well. You should not see water over the transom b...
I use 3M scotch edge lock blue tape. Love that stuff. Big box store or paint store usually stock it. Make sure it says edge lock on the tape itself its totally different from similar looking blue tape. https://www.supplyhog.com/c/paint-painting-supplies/tapes-dispensers/masking-tape-paper/p/3m-scotc...
Its hard to tell without seeing what exactly it looks like. I'm pretty certain I'd use it. The wood seems solid, are you just concerned about the epoxy holding from the voids? When you put on the bottom planking maybe put screws in the keel that are the same length as the thickness of the keel so yo...

Ive tried a few of the different varnishes now and Captains is my favorite. I think going with varnish instead of auto clear is a good move regardless of cost. It makes it so much easier to maintain down the road. I think it gives a warmer, softer look that you expect from wood as well.

Those seem to be only minimally adjustable so they will have to be a close fit. Also, they look like they could stand to use a good bit of fixing up and maybe some beefing up. You gotta ask yourself what your time is worth and you have gotta be sure its going to fit. How far and how often do you pla...

Many of those items are available right here through Glen-L. The rest you can find from various vendors online. This topic comes up quite often so you can use the search function of this forum and should find lots of info on windshield brackets, etc. The glass will be custom to each boat so you will...
Yep, you don't need to do them in one full thickness. You can apply them in two lamination half the thickness. This makes it much easier. Also, try bending them a little then letting sit overnight, then bend some more. Take a couple days to do it, each day it will bend further, easier. You can wrap ...
