Re: To cutwater... Or not to cutwater... That is the question

"Glen-L step"

Never heard that one before.
Is this suggesting that Glen-L craft do not have a smooth transition at the chine near the stem? I wasn't aware they had a reputation for this characteristic.

Re: Changes

I have no yet started my deck remodel as planned. I've been buried in knifemaking work and other distractions. But..., if boatbuilding is anything, it is timeless. Maybe as spring breaks here in Idaho, I can knock this little project out. The wife wants me to improve the seating as well. hmm... As f...

field Boards

As I do the mental work relating to re-doing my deck this winter, I have encountered a question. Since I never installed a traditional planked deck like so many of you have, I am wondering about the geometry. My deck curves fore and aft as well as sheer to sheer, so it seems unlikely that field boar...

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

This kit has some cool updates with the foreword chine and the form. I said years ago that the Zip was a prime candidate for a stitch and glue build. Maybe a tweak or two to this kit could accommodate that. Sorry for the lack of photos of my build PW. My boat never made the cut for inclusion in the ...

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

I used Mark's batten and keel sriffeners too, but I used double stiffiners on my keel--one on either side of the transom knee going all the way up to the stem.
Boat has never even creaked--not even when I was inside of it buolding the interior.

Re: Changes

That was my original plan Jim, but now that I know it may be possible to get the grooves without ruining the ply, I'd really like to have the texture and topography.

I've already posted about the forthcoming deck changes to my Zip and once again, I was using the Windows 'Paint' program to explore ideas which is exactly how I came up with my current layout. I was going to ask if anyone herein had done a Zip with a walk-thru deck. I don't recall one lately, but it...

After living with my Zip for a fer years, that 20' mahogany beast is just luxuriously big! I was jealous! Bryan, gonna have to do the two-...

Re: Hello from California!

Welcome!
Many of us chose the Zip because it fits in about any garage, especially with a swing-away tongue on the trailer.
It's a great design as are they all!

Re: Klondike Build

Yours continues to be (imho) the pinnacle build detailed in these forums. Very inspiring! Might I suggest a professional photographer to document your accomplishment and take those stunning beauty shots she deserves once she gets wet. You might even call a local reporter to be there. This once in a ...
