Joe's Zip

Postby jthurber » Thu Jan 18, 2018 3:41 pm

Well it's very cold in the garage now so I have time for a progress report. First I want to thank all of you for this great treasure trove of boat-building wisdom! And thanks to Glen L for a great design and plans. I am having a lot of fun building the Zip and learning quite a lot! Here are a few pictures.

Lumber and plywood arrive!

Layout board - an under-rated amount of work.

Frames, stem and transom fastened to the building frame.
