    Zuma cover advice

    Nice! I ended up ordering the Top Gun, which was in stock. The boat is kept outside in coastal NC, but hopefully I won't have mildew issues. I won't be towing the boat with the cover on, or at least don't plan to.

    Boat Pics

    The very last photo taken of the boat is the sunset pic... The last sailing photo was that same afternoon using a boom mounted GoPro. Location: Bogue Sound NC.

    Zuma cover advice

    FWIW, I ended up ordering a cover from Masthead. They happened to have one in stock, so no long wait to have it fabricated. It's the same Top Gun material and essentially the same price as the SLO cover, just with immediate shipping vs a 6-week wait. Nothing but the best for my Zuma :D

    Zuma cover advice

    1978 J24 For Sale

    Did I just see this same boat motoring east down the ICW along Bogue Sound this past weekend?? It was a yellow J24, and I can't imagine there are many of them in NC. The wind was probably 25+ and it looked like the boat was just about surfing the little wind swell!
