Totally Kitted !!! Fishes between 5 miles and 60 miles offshore!! Interesting setup on the front. This is one permanently setup ski.

That is close to the ultimate hull for jet ski fishing. The storage boxes at the back are brilliant and I reckon I will get me one of those stainless frames made for the front. I reckon Yamaha should bring one of these into production with the 160hp fxho 4 stroke or even the fxsho engine but I doubt the extra horsepower is needed I would go for the better fuel economy.

9 out 10 for that rig I don't like two strokes if that's all they come in.

yeah i reckon that hull with fx160 driveline and motor would be a mint setup. from the googling ive done I cant see any 4 stroke ones.

Took a young fulla out for a fish the other month and he had one of these.
Like launching a battleship but the rods can be carried inside the hull storage.
Rough chop coming back in to Bucklands but it just ploughed through and when we got back there was no water in the foot wells.
It was quite an old ski as the seat and the ski finish had a lot of sun damage( plus had been in the family for years).
Apart from the sheer size of it I thought it was a good ski.

That's quite a serious set up, looks like the chilly bin is mounted long ways off the back so you keep some of the rear boarding area free...
