Well not alot of "show" the past few days but tonight i famowood plugged all my subdeck screw holes (will sand flush tomorrow). The only reason i did this was for a "clean slate" to do a quick layout to test my deck planking plan and visualize the end result without as much visual distraction from the 198 subdeck screws. I will post some pics in a few days of what i came up with, like much of my build it will be a combination of looks taken from multiple Zip builds, Chris, Andy, Garfield, ted, Todd, and many many others all contributed in some way to my overall plan for the deck, still have to pick up and resaw all of the deck planking material but making good progress. 8)

Fine looking boat. Heck, I'm impressed you can work in your garage, mine is uninhabitable in this Texas heat.

You'll be glad you did this Josh. It makes a nice finished edge to the plywood. Looks great!.

Vacation with the family this week has slowed progress on the Zip but work secretly continues early in the morning and late at night, started polishing the cutwater, 220 grit, then 320 then 600 then 1200 and finishing with "Mothers" mag and aluminum polish, still piles of polishing to do but looking pretty good.

Hi Josh! I have now finished your "building the zip" series on youtube, and man I had a good time watching it :) inspiring to see such good craftsmanship. You are better than you say you are, hehe. I think you can call yourself a boatbuilder now!

I like the way you explain things in detail in the videos. Will definitely use many of your tips and tricks when I'm starting my build, witch is very soon :wink:

Just waiting for the next episode.

finished with the stainless cutwater, the fit is good, before the final install i will polish it one last time but i think i can call it done, pretty happy with the end result. The integrated bow eye looks pretty snazzy.


Toivo.....thanks for watching! Next update video will be uploaded sept 1st

Today was deck planking resaw time, a friend from work just finished restoring a very large very old bandsaw, he graciously offered to give it a maiden test run and resaw my coverboards, we started with two planks of african mahogany that measured 1" thick by 11" wide by 8' long, we resawed each plank down the center line which gave us a total of four planks 11" wide and 7/16" thick, then ran them through his 15" planer a few passes on each side to end up with a finished thickness of 1/4". This is enough material for both cover boards from stem to stern. I will need to pick up more material to finish the deck but I'm off to a good start 8)

That's awesome. I need to learn how to resaw too, for my Malahini deck. I need 1/2" by 8" material for deck planks and 1/2" x 12" material for the cover boards (not using plywood sub-deck). That band saw is industrial grade and probably sliced that wood with little or no effort!
