Thanks, Everyone!!! This is a great little boat for anyone wanting to get into the hobby. Seems to run well with just about any motor.

Here are some pics of my Granddaughter Alyssa on the Super Spartan today. One has our Grandson Andrew along with her. Alyssa never piloted a boat before today. She had raced miniquads and two wheel dirtbikes. She is 14 and just completed her boating safety course to get the certificate to allow her to pilot the boat by herself. I had her pilot the Zip with me for about 2 hrs prior to turning her loose on the Super Spartan. We did get some video, but for some reason it was way out of focus, so we will try again later this week.

Thanks!!! I think it does about 20 mph with that motor. We ran behind her in the Zip for a ways and my GPS speedo indicated that.
