Finally hit the water in Idaho

Post by Andy Garrett » Sun Aug 19, 2018 7:30 am

Since my last post outlining future work on the Zip, my wife and I hit the waters on two Idaho lakes near home.
The boat ran great and really likes the smooth water (never experienced any of that in the midwest).
Learned a new way to launch and load on the trailer. I'll detail that in the Trailering forum.
Here's a few pics:

Perhaps the slowest Zip build in Glen-L history...

What a nice area to go boating. Nice looking boat, also.

Thanks for the compliments!
A Zip play date sounds fun. Love to compare notes.

We don't swim much, but we love to just go pleasure boating.

Funny thing after all that study I did solving my ladder problem.
