Well done and very nice work. Nice to see another 'true' waterline on a ZIP, it looks pretty much spot on with my ZIP's waterline. The "Flip" day is a significant event, but bear in mind that the post flip work can we'll take as long as long, if not longer, than the preflip work :)
This is my first, last and only boat build.

Thanks gd, thats the beauty of this forum, i took pieces from various zip builds that i liked and incorporated them into my build, for the record your true waterline was the inspiration for mine :) i absolutely love your waterline!

Congrats on the flip. From your transom it's apparent you are going with a short shaft, do you already have an outboard engine for it? Your trailer looks like as tight a fit for the boat as my trailer, should tow effortlessly. Keep up the good work.
This is my first, last and only boat build.

I do not have a outboard yet, although the short shafts are slightly more difficult to find, in my area they are still plenty, i found a very clean merc 40hp on craigs---- for a reasonable amount, been eying it for a few weeks now. I do like the look of the short shaft transom, trailer fit the boat well, few loose ends to tie up there (forward roller under 5 1/2 and mount the winch/bow stop, thats the kind of work I'm good at (millwright) i am quite happy with the zip, i am no woodworker but i refuse to do anything short of my absolute best on this boat, I'm proud, thanks for the encouragement. .....josh

I do have a roller under 5 1/2 - but the it does not touch the keel - just helps launching with the trailer tilted. My trailer is a 1961 "Champ", poor cousin to the "Gator" trailers, same manufacturer. I made 3 cradles aligned and contoured to fit the the frames, and 6 bunks aligned with my battens.
