Re: Boat Cover Batten wood?

A couple lams of thin wood would help keep it from splitting.

Re: Small gas outboard or electric trolling motor?

A trolling motor is designed for low speed, relatively low RPM. More lbs of thrust is only necessary to move a larger, heavier boat but won't make the prop turn faster. If all you want to do is tool around at a walking or slow running speed a small trolling motor will definitely do the trick.

Re: Small gas outboard or electric trolling motor?

No matter how many pounds of thrust an electric trolling motor will only top out at about 5mph. So if you want to go that direction you might as well get a 30 or 40 lb thrust motor. An outboard sized appropriately would possibly get you on plane if the hull is capable of holding an engine with enoug...

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Looking good! If it's too stiff you can wrap the chine in towels and soak it with boiling water.

The zip is a great boat. Welcome to the forum. Have you checked this page to see if you can find a supplier in your area?

Re: Matt's Geronimo

That's pretty sleek looking Neel. A nice change from the standard cast brackets that a lot of folks end up with. It does look a little fragile though. I wonder how sturdy it is.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Thanks, Neel! From a practical perspective, I really don't think it's needed. It would mean some additional likely expensive hardware as well. It would be cool, though. I also want to thank everybody that I met at G12 that complimented my boat. It really made me feel good to get those nice comments ...

Re: New Zip from MN (and NW WI)

Meranti is fine. It is a little stiffer to bend though.

Thanks, Peter, that's what I'm going for including the top. I don't think I'll be able to pull off making them openable though.

Re: 2018 Report

Here's all my video of G12. I would have had more river run footage except I was driving most of the time. So capt Dave drove for a while on the way back and I got a little footage of the gorgeous views in the valley. And just to be clear, I didn't zoom in on Bob's "flaw" until he mentione...
