The vintage motors are cool, but there's a lot to be said about modern technology. Too pretty a boat to not have in the water due to motor problems. Nice motor. Have fun this summer!

So cool! I knew you were planning on swapping to a four stroke, keep me posted.
I cut twice and it's still too short :mrgreen:

Cool Josh,
I'm torn between keeping costs down wit an older motor and biting the bullet for a new Etec 115.

Hi Carl,

Of course you will be more than pleased with a new motor. If it`s in the budget...go for it.

After all the work you are putting into the boat build, It only makes sence to put a new motor
on it. I`m sure you want to get the most performance out of it as do I with my ZIP.

Make sure you get the power trim.


:)

I just wanted to draw attention to another amazing collection of construction photos ( over 400) for the ZIP
boat by bjfrater
https://plus.google.com/photos/11224084 ... PTuxIG26AE

I know there are several other outstanding photo collections of the ZIP build and that interests me because
I want to build the Tiny-Might which I believe is very similar only inboard powered instead of outboard.

I will have to wait until I get closer and see how it goes. I will definitely be getting power trim on whatever I end up with.
