Congratulations on the flip! The hull looks great!

I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on the interior... and like Bill said, I hope to see it at G12!

Hello everyone! I have been on a hiatus from boat building for over a year now for various reasons (buying a new home, renovations to new house, new job, new kid, etc). I have finally found time to get back to it! Over the past couple weeks I finished the epoxy coating on the interior and started working on the building the interior. It looks like the plans have the front cockpit seat back being 18” from frame 2? Does that sounds right? It seems like it will make the front cockpit too cramped, although I am relatively tall.

It’s good to be back. I hope all has been well!

Thanks Chris! We look to be about the same build, so that’s good news.

Got the deck battens screwed and glued!

Such nice clean lines. The ZIp is definitely a sporty design. Soon you'll be doing the decking.

Hello everyone

I have been making some progress. I have the front seat back, deck battens and carlings all installed. Next is going to be the rear seat back then flooring.

I have question about the rear seat back location. It appears from the drawing that the rear seat back should be ~ 18in from the transom; however, the plans say the depth of the motor well, forward to aft, should be 22in? Something doesn’t add up? That seems like a very large motor well for a >40 hp motor.

1. What distance from the transom/ frame 2 should the seat back be located.
2. Should I just build my motor well to accommodate whichever motor I chose and ignore the dimensions from the plan?

Thank you in advance.
Jason
