Just saw your #51 video. Watching the footage on the lake, I caught myself wearing an ear-to-ear grin. Thanks for the vicarious ride! Congratulations again on the build and the first launch. It's an absolutely beautiful boat, especially on the backdrop of that gorgeous lake.

Loving my Zip! Today we took a fathers day cruise at a local lake that i have never been on, halfway through our trip the anode bolt came loose and allowed the anode to slide down into the prop, it eventually fell off (anode) :lol: we stayed out and played anyhow, lost some fuel economy and a couple mph on the top end, still had a blast! Need to buy a new prop (same dia / pitch), prop nut, anode and anode bolt, B.O.A.T. = bust out another thousand :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'd say you probably did loose some efficiency. :lol:

Well that's a novel way of modifying a prop :lol: My damaged props were the result of unintended contact with hard things under water.

Wow, thats a more damage that I expected to see from that.

I had to leave an anchor to the water gods today. No matter what I tried I just couldnt get it up. I think it was in a mess of sunken logs.

Well sorry to hear about the prop damage. Fortunately it didn't leave you stranded and it's a lesson learned for next time. I guess like cars and airplanes, we should probably "pre-flight" our vehicles!!
