Cool Boat

I kinda want to save this cool old McCulloch/Scott, but I have a feeling this could be the most expensive boat I ever own, even if I could get it for free.

Re: Working on starting a jet driven Squirt

2-stroke PWC engines are incredibly powerful for their size and weight.
It's all about having the room for it. If you can go triple, well..., that's pretty cool.

Zip bilge inspection

I installed my floorboards 6 years ago telling myself that I'd inspect regularly. Finally got around to it. Lol! I never encapsulated my interior. I used Benjamin Moore Polyamid paint. I can say that it's held up well. It's dirty, and the kerfs on the battens broke the epoxy/paint bond at some point...

Re: Zip SA Build

I think if I were to build another Zip, I would build the single gusseted frame (original). The boat is so over strength as designed, it's amazing. A fact I have shared many times herein: When I flipped mine and drug it up on the trailer (where I did all the top side work). I was crawling around in ...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

I like the all ivory look. It'll let the eye really center on your woodwork. You could use stitch patterns to add visual texture.

Besides, it'll be more comfortable on a sunny day.

Great boat!

Re: Hello and boat selection

Welcome! I'm gonna suggest something else. Based on your "If you're going to go, then go big" comment (paraphrased) in regard to choosing an inboard design, then go as big as you can--those kids aren't getting any smaller. You have a space equivalent to a two car garage. The most common measurement ...

Thanks for the replies!
I'll see if I can dig up that video.

The idea is still evolving.

I too have the same dive ladder in the same spot--toiled over that solution for a long time. And..., we never get into the water anymore.

Re: I will be turning wood into a Cabin Skiff soon...

What a wonderful place these forums are... I was just lamenting how rarely someone documents a stitch & glue build here on the forums moments ago, when I posted about my interest in building the Tug Along. Then, the very next post is of a stitch & glue build that has until now, eluded me. To address...

Tug Along

As I zero in on my re-decking task, I am considering joining the ranks of those elite few who have built multiple boats. I'd LOVE a tug style, but each has it's quirks and challenges. With all the considerations of storage, trailerabilty, my local waters, etc., it's tough to find the perfect design....

Re: 'Caulk' Options

Jim, My current deck is the one in my avatar. My new one will be this. Not exactly 'classic'.
If my plan fails, I may try a traditional caulk after all.
I feel a test board coming.
