    boarding a ski w/ a cooler and rod holders

    Just ordered the pwc coolermate for my gti se 155. I've seen many guys having similar setups with the cooler. My question is.. and i've asked jetskibrian this... how do you board the ski from the side if you fall in while out fishing or whatever? I'm assuming the cooler prohibits you from climbing on from the rear using he step? Thoughts? Thanks!

    always tougher to board from the sides than the rear (stern) especially in choppier waters ,does the GTI have a grab bar(gpr does).I have a habit of practicing getting back on a ski in deeper choppier waters just in case.That should be a nice setup with the cooler, Sandy your out my way,keep the beer and margarita juice cold, and ill keep the tequilia in my storage bucket(j/k)i'll look for you in Spermicatti Cove

    Do you have a rear boarding step?

    If not, now would be the time to install one.

    Practice reboarding with it before you really need it.
