If you're not breaking something once in a while you're not having fun. Plus, now you've got something you can hang in the powder room for decoration.

If the boat doesn't live in the water and you don't use it in salt water do you actually need an anode on the motor?

It’s all part of the life cycle of a prop.

They also have a little fin to counteract torque steer.

Today was the first test by myself, the new prop performed exactly like the one it replaced, quick plane time but without the added weight of the kids the Zip averaged 28 mph @ 5400 rpm (WOT) :!: :!: :!: when throttled back to 5000 rpm the zip cruised at 25 mph, could not be happier with the performance, solo launch and retrieval went well (first time with the zip but not my first solo launch) and take a look at the pics! I was not the only wood boat on the lake today! No idea what make, model or year it was but it was very cool seeing another woodie out there! Still loving my Zip 8)

That's great, Josh. I think that motor must be making more than 25 horses.

So i think the final hurdle is clear for title and registration of my Zip, the oregon process is as follows.

1.) Pick up a homebuilders paper from any marina or dealer.
2.) Sign and notarize homebuilders paper.
3.) Have the vessel inspected by your county "marine sherriff"
4.) Snap three pics of the boat, one from the front, one from the side and one from the rear.
5.) Mail the notarized homebuilders paper, passed boat inspection paper and all three pics as well as the fee ($122) to the state marine board.
6.) Wait.......
7.) The marine board then issues a hull ID number and oregon registration number and mails you your registration and stickers, title and detailed instructions on how to display those numbers.

The hull ID must be displayed on the rear right of the transom in 1/2" to 1" tall lettering visible while on the water from the outside of the boat, it can be carved into the wood or stamped into a plate and permanently attached. There are also specific height, spacing and location directions for the oregon registration numbers on each side of the bow that must be followed, the marine board also recommends hiding a second hull ID number somewhere else to aid in theft recovery.

Because i did half of this process through email i recieved my hull ID and registration numbers but have not recieved the paperwork / stickers through the post yet. There are a few hoops to jump through here in oregon to title and register a homebuild but not a difficult process at all.

Another lake day! This time with two adults and three kids aboard, it took the 25hp a little longer to get on plane but it still did it with ease, once on top she still ran 26-27mph!!! Can you believe this merc! OUTSTANDING!
So much fun! 8) 8) 8) 8)
