Making good progress. 8)



That looks great! Another poster mentioned a youtube series you're doing, about your build? You should put your link in your signature so curious folks like myself can find it and watch. :)


I believe i put a link to my youtube page in my profile here but if you go to youtube and search "Building the Zip" you will find my videos, i have uploaded one video a month showing the progress of my Zip build since i started three and a half years ago, i believe there are 46 videos so far, just don't take my methods as the gospel, i'm a rookie, i could be doing this all wrong :lol:

First fill on the bow seams complete, when cured i will sand the seams with 80 grit and do the final fill, pretty happy with them so far.

Today the front seams were taped off, sanded and the final seam fill was done, all seams are now slightly proud of the deck, in a day or two i can sand the entire deck surface and start my top epoxy coats. Coming right along. 8)

Josh, you've been doing a great job. Definitely, this is going to be the year of the splash. I bet you are getting excited for that day. And with old man winter well along, it won't be too much longer.
