Hi Joshua,

The Zip is looking outstanding!!

I've stalked your thread since I signed up and I'm very impressed with your build and what you've done to make it distinctly "your boat".
A lot of great ideas and a very nice job on it!! :D

Thanks,
Dave

Interior edges of both cockpits are sanded, motor well interior edges are sanded, transom plank endgrain is sanded, the starboard sheer edge is flush sanded and rounded over (not pictured) and i am currently working on the port sheer edge. Had to take a break as i have sanded my right palm raw...... whats left?

1. Finish the sheer sanding
2. seam sand the ends of my deck planks (bow curve)
3. long board the deck
4. encapsulate the deck,
5. Fill deck seams & sand flush
6. Final encapsulation coat
7. U.V. top coat
8. Final assembly

I think i can have 1 through 5 done by the end of december, thank you everyone for the encouragement 8) 8) 8) 8)

Wow, beautiful mahogany and beautiful work. Now that you are nearing completion of the construction of the hull I am curious as to your vision of it being complete- Some people go with or without a windshield, gas filler cap on deck over gas tank? The hull looks sleek and clean as it is, yet chrome bits add bling or contrast to the wood, great either way. Your thoughts?
You've done a lot of work to cover the plywood edges, will you be adding cockpit combing?

Fantastic Job, on the boat and documenting it! Always eager to see your next video.
Thanks

Josh,
That looks fantastic! I hope my deck looks that good once it is sanded.
