Roberta's Zip Interview from G5

Post by Gayle Brantuk » Fri Mar 02, 2012 3:36 pm

We just posted the interview taken at G5 of Roberta and her Zip! Great job Roberta and thank you so much for letting us tape you! You really did a wonderful interview and you continue to inspire other boat builders (and airplane builders) to reach for their dreams.

These interview videos are great, nice job Roberta. Just another excellent reason to bring your boat to the Gatherings.

Nice interview Roberta. You're an inspiration.

My Malahini will be sliding into a nearby lake in a few short months (once they melt of course)!

I look forward to joining the 'boat launched' club. I am betting your 2nd boat will already be floating before then ;)
