You definitely need a method that works for you. Also since many of us use trailers converted for our boats you might want to take tools to adjust your trailer if needed.
Thanks all. We love the Zip but after 10 years we just want to try something different. Life's short and there are too many toys out there. Since we have the other little wood skiff and the 10hp limited lake so close we use it quite a bit and just aren't using the Zip since we have to travel farther...

For a long shaft motor on a Zip the motor will be above the motor well. Even when the motor is tilted up not much of anything will be "in" the well. The steering cable and rod would be above the deck so not a factor and no need to widen the well. You should not see water over the transom b...
I use 3M scotch edge lock blue tape. Love that stuff. Big box store or paint store usually stock it.
