Wood ordered – ZIP Build

On September 26, 2011, in Outboard Powered, by EricB

Well, a few days ago I ordered my first load of wood for the ZIP.  Will start on the hull framing sometime next week.  Paid 1,270.00 bucks and it hurt lol.  Hell I just spent 3 Lowes gift cards I got for Fathers Day this past weekend.

So far, I do have a motor that I’ll restore best I can.  A 58 Evenrude Lark 35hp.  I’ve got some of the chrome hardware and have an idea of what gauges I’d like to get.  Will post photos soon.

    I am also building a Zip. I have the frames all built and assembled and mounted on the building frame. Have keel installed and chines too. Fairing done on 1 side and plywood fitted. This winter I will finish the other side. It has all been great fun. When doing a boat build keep one thing in mind–when you are done, you will have built something that not many have done when you compare yourself to the number of people that own boats. This is something that we all can be very proud of.
