You may recall that latex house paint was used when Zippey was painted last (long story… I did not do it). I have known for a while that she needs to be pulled and repainted, however I did not know the extent. With the frustrations I had this summer with Zippey’s speed; I picked up a GeekPro camera (GoPro clone) to enable me to visually inspect the underside of the boat. What I found confirmed my suspicions that there is marine growth that is slowing Zippey down. In fact there is a ton of growth down there. Here is the video of Zippey’s undersides.
Please clean me!
