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.
