Nice job, 8 fellows to flip a Zip, you had muscle to spare. Now stand back and stare at it for a week contemplating next phase of construction. Fun stuff!

Where is the photo of you sitting in it making motor boat noises? :lol:

This has got to be one of the fastest start to Zip flips ever.

That's not fair. The last boat flip I did I used 2 engine hoists, a couple old tires and a come along. It took about 2 hours of full on pucker that I was going have an issue with a boat I had just spent 3 months blue printed pump set back and re gel coat.

Dry fitted deck for fit, need to fair sheer top just a bit, I found fairing to be the most difficult for me, however the kit is a great time saver and wood is forgiving!!
