Re: Building the Zip with the NEW Zip Complete Wood Parts Kit

Well, at least we can agree that a new 60 4 stroke is extremely large, glad you weren't considering that.... Back to PWDULA's build.

TAB, Seems odd to worry about a 12 gallon tank when you plan a 60hp motor? :shock: Are you planning a NEW 60hp motor? I show the differrence being more like 40lbs comparing a new 40 to a new 60?

The difference between a craftsman and a hack is the craftsman knows how to cover his mistakes.

Re: Zip Hull Depth

Without the Skeg I calculate it would just fit through the doorway. My concern is how you could get enough places to hold it and get enough people around it. Bow would be especially awkward.

Welcome! The world needs more Zips! You can definitely spread the expense out building from scratch. You can keep steady working going on just a couple hundred dollars a month pretty easily.

Re: New Guy

Welcome. A small stitch and glue boat is a great way to get started in boat building. Only recommendation is use good marine products. You probably don't need it for a simple 8ft boat but if you prefer books to the internet you might consider the "Boat-building with Plywood" book from Glen-L. Enjoy!

Re: Frame Wood Selection

My local supplier had 3/4" actual thickness African Mahogany in random length from 6-14 ft and width of about 7" to 14". Most were about 8ft and 7-8" wide. You just plan out the best you can. I had the luxury of having a supplier nearby which helped a lot.
