I'm cracking up remembering the old days when playing in the surf the ski spent almost as much time upside down and certainly did not right itself with the pace that Dually's did today. As he says his ski spun around so fast from being upside down that it almost picked him outta the water and chucked him on top !!!

To challenge the stability once more Dually stood ontop of the bin at the very back of the rig and still the back of the hull sat very buoyant without a compromising waterline.

Maybe while we are waiting for the comp debreif on Sunday he could give all another demo ........ !!! Nah flag that Murphy's Law would be bound to kick in......!!

Plenty of fresh water, followed by lots of INOX will work a treat.

I suppose putting the safety cord for the video camera under your front hatch assisted in some dampening.......not that the water got much of a chance to get in............almost spun dry itself !!

Still remember being tipped off when doing a slow turn (no bin) with 2 10 year olds on the back who decided to put their hands in the water whilst we were turning - next thing I'm in the water. It will be turns on a swell that might be what may tip the ski but probably no more than having a 2nd person on to do the damage except where maybe a quick turn where the water moves against the turn (similar to 2 10 year old girls leaning away froma corner)

Hi dually is there any major differances between your ski and a FX 160HO 2008 nano hull . i want to up grade as i two don,t like been tipped in the water the hondas seem a bit tender to extra weight on the arse end ,one day my leg or something will get caught up in the bouy rope from the pot and i'll be draged to the ocean floor. that wouldn't be a great outcome!!!

Hey Salti. Not any major difference, Andrew may be able to clarify. Mine is a FZ which i belive is a slightly different hull shape for performance handling. it is still the nano hull and looks very much the same shape as the FX from the outside. You are welcome to jump all over the back of it before we leave on sunday if you want to see for yourself Very Happy If you want economy for fishiong then DONT buy the SHO like i did, i use approx twice what nounou does and have used the full 70 litres in 52 minutes!!! It was a fun 52 minutes though Laughing Yeah, wouldnt be too cool being dragged to the bottom affraid
