Hurricane Irene has grounded my Zip.

I have been beating the crap outta my zip. Going out in choppy waters, overloading it, running aground, getting caught in thunderstorms. The hull really can take a pounding, its 1/4" plywood for crying out loud! It has exceeded my expectaions in everyway! Not to mention all the new friends Im making...

New Prop on Zip

The boats running great, got a top speed of 26mph with myself and the wife on board. Hopefully I can play with it a little and do better. Its a Michigan wheel prop, 10'5" with a 12 pitch. $100. Outstanding/
