ZippKits JAE Gas kit

The JAE Gas outrigger was designed and developed as a result of a joint venture between IMPBA Hall of Fame member Rod Geraghty, along with David Hall, Ron Zaker Jr. & Martin Truex Jr. The main difference between this hull and all the others is the use of sharp angles on the bottom of the sponsons and tub, as opposed to curved surfaces. This helps break any surface tension of the water and makes for a faster boat. This design approach has been built, developed and tested a great deal.

We don't recommend this as your first boat, as it can easily exceed 70 mph with a stock engine.

However, if you are an experienced boater, this would make an excellent first wood kit.
