I picked up more African mahogany yesterday in 16' that's 5/4 thick for my keel and battens along with the chines and sheers so hope to build the building form this weekend and get it looking like a boat

Dan, your Zip is looking good. I'm in the process in building my Flying Saucer.

Do you happen to have any pictures of your frames laid out before placing the gussets? I'm curious on how you cut your frames. I'm assuming top and bottom frames are cut long and the sides are short.

yes I do I cut the top and bottoms of my frames I was going to leave those long but on some of the frames I realized there wouldn't be much wood left on the frame after the notch was cut I thought that might be weaker I guess it doesn't matter since the gussets with glue hold it all together
