Since Kate and I got our Zodiac at Brown’s Yacht yard with help from Rick Nardone and Dave Zingg I’ve become obsessed. I think if people got on one that is configured the right way, that they’d become obsessed too. I think for about 70% of local boaters they’d be a better option than a traditional hard-sided fiberglass boat. Go to Brown’s and talk to Rick about getting one.
