I received my zzzipkit and other materials from Glen L on July 9/10/11. The wood from the zip kit is awesome and I am already thrilled I decided to purchase that over finding it on my own and going off of the plans. I unpacked everything, took inventory, read/reread the directions and got started on the building form:
The finished building form:
None of these pieces are actually glued together, but I wanted to get an idea of how it all fit together. There are actually 20 different boat pieces on that front assembly!
The first set of steps was to assemble the chine brace. It didn’t take me long to realize just how much fairing was going to be required in this build.
Trying to figure out how all of these things go together. Thank you Mark at zzzipkit for labeling (with both words and colors)!
Definitely need more clamps. My guess is I’ll have 100 or more by the time this is all said and done.
