Hi Mart

Hi Bill the kit comes from the states,the kit costs $179 plus shipping which was pretty good also,i think i paid $60+$30 for shipping but it comes in two boxes one for the boat one for the cowl.All in all its very reasonable,you get a turn fin and bracket with the kit.The running gear is standard surface drive gear but is not included ,although they do sell good packages of hardware.Its  a ZIPPKITS KIT Joe Petro is a top guy and has helped me no end via email and i now consider him a good friend.All in all a kit for 137 delivered is dam good,the build couldnt be easier and the manual is the best ive ever seen to be honest.With a stock zen they will do mid 50s if set up with the correct prop etc,also handle wind and chop apparently so maybe i neednt have worried today as i was a little nervous as it was blowing a tad.I allready have another kit here ready to build,was for a mate but hes just bought another cat so i might just build it and sell it on unless my lad fancys a race  {-).

Had the hydro out again yesterday heres a short video ,she handles the wind and chop well.Speed is really good and im sure still more to come yet too.Who knows she might get close to the magic 70 with a few tweaks and a bit of experimenting .
