Re: Electric Longboard - Practicing Techniques!

Thats awesome. I enjoy my longboard skateboard for cruising next to my 6 year old on his bike. I've stayed away from the electric ones due to cost but they sure look fun! Nice job! Those stats for speed and range are impressive.

Re: Sealing cutwater fasteners

Dry fit like Roberta, then seal threads in the wood with straight epoxy resin with a little art brush, let cure. Re-install with sealant on screws. Never had an issue hitting fasteners, used short screws, like 3/8".

Re: Strakes on a zip

I think 6ft is plenty for the skeg. I think mine was less and I liked the way the boat turned and tracked well.

My thoughts on strakes are you may not notice them much. I'm a minimalist, if its not a clear benefit, why spend the time on it. I don't see the clear benefit in this case.

Re: Brendons Zip Build

Your Captain looks ready at the helm! I havent seen any of the long shaft motors get the steering cable through the motor well, they all appear to use a deck exit that I have seen. Really nice build. Good find on the windshield brackets!
