Yeah, very odd... I went back and checked pics you posted before that I saw before, and they are red crosses now too... so every pic on your forum won't show for me anymore... but, strangely, other forum pages I can see the pics no problem.

Probably on my end, doesn't seem like anyone else is having a problem seeing them. What type of pics do you post? .jpg, or .gif, or something else?

Very Strange, Charles. They are all there for me. Maybe you have a pop up or some inhibitor turned on. I use Image Shack for the links and have only used that. Try rebooting your computer.

I told my wife we needed a three-car garage for my projects...she told me to ask her for permission next time before I buy a house.

Well Roberta, just about everyone has weighed in on the beauty of your Zip. But, after following your build, I don't think anyone would have expected any less. You are indeed, a master craftsman. I look forward to seeing a pic of you sitting on a couple of temp blocks at the helm, sketching out the dash and interior details. You now enter the "my way" phase of building and it will be fun.
Congratulations,
Tom

Congratulations on the flip! It really is looking good.
I look forward to flipping my Malahini in the near future. I don't have Champagne types; more like bourbon and beer.

There is so much planning and so many ways to lay out the seating and other things. I bet I changed my mind a couple dozen times in the last week on how to approach things. Rich and I fooled around for several hours last weekend deciding on the seating and test fitting mockups to see what was viable for us. We need to seat four, two adults and two growing kids so we finally decided to go with the two cockpit arrangement per the original design. We are lowering the floor in the front slightly (Chris Vupilot idea) and will tip the seat bottom like he did to try to keep us lower in the hull. The idea of a larger single cockpit with swivel seats and a small bench behind them (utilizing the space between the #2 and #4 frames) was just too tight for our liking.

I finished the chine to chine sole board spreaders today and have given the bottom below the chines it's first coat of encapsulating resin. Tomorrow I will put on the second coat. I can ponder how I will arrange things while I watch the resin cure. :wink:
