My mums first trip in a Zapcat

Since getting my Zapcat my mother has been the only one of my family interested in going for a blast. The other weekend I took her out for a spin, the conditions were not ideal for a first timer with a strong onshore wind and 2-3 ft chop. I thought she would have hated the boat trip but she loved every minute of it and has asked me to take her out again!

Lol was not out long so used the fuel left over from last time. Full tank lasts ages thanks to the very little weight of the craft.
