Possible new build

Post by chugalug »

Was researching a possible fun boat when I came across a"Zipper". Can't have much weight capacity since only 4ft. wide x 8 ft.long,18 hp motor and 6 gal tank and can tow skiiers.Imagine can be a little tricky with the foot steering at advertised speed of 36 mph.

Tow that one behind the first one. Looks like a good musky trolling bait. Tom

Scooter looks more comfortable and user-friendly.
