    Ridding GPR and Storage Needs

    Well I know most of u guys are in to speed and high performance, but as much as I like that my ski is pretty much stock and will stay that way. I ride with my girl most of the time (2 up) so i have a serious need for storage space and the tiny front bin just aint doin it for me. What do most of u guys use to increase ur storage capacity and where do you strap it to ? I am just trying to get some ideas on how I can accomplish this before I start going back out on the water. Al input is appreciated

    this is what you want but good luck finding one as they dont make them anymore

    i bought one ages ago that a friend has now got, they attach to the back of the ski using velcro and carry about 2-3 times as much as the front bucket does.

    you should be able to find one second hand or on the shelf somewhere.

    Update: go google http://www.yamahaaccy.com/acproductd...776_All_1.aspx

    I have the stern bag and the handlebar bag(http://www.parkeryamaha.com/2007yama...averunner.aspx) from my gpr in my basement. I'll sell you them both for $60/shipped

    The stern bag is water resistant, not waterproof. It's good for storing things such as tow ropes, dock ropes, spare life vest.

    The handlebar bag has a waterproof inner bag. I used it for my cell phone and cigarettes.

    also if you dont carry much stuff, ive seen people put their rope under the front bucket, like in front of the fuel tank.

    if you need more storage you can rig up a thing like the fishing guys make.

    i need to find a cooler that fits in my front bag, and a waterbox (or water tight box) that will fit in my glove box. theres nothing in my glovebox other than sunglasses and my registration and all. if i could put my phone and wallet in a waterbox, then in my glove box, then i could put my rope and flip flops under the front bucket and then use the front bucket for a cooler ordeal, then id be set.

    maybe something along the lines of this

    and otter box makes a univeral box. i dont have my ski near me to measure my glove box though.

    Excellent question.

    I am planning a 225-mile, 5-day trip from NJ to VA this summer and have been struggling with the storage issue myself. Except for the virtually useless handlebar bag there is nothing available that is specifically designed for the Waverunner. I finally settled on a 60-liter dry bag for my clothes, laptop, toiletries, etc. I figure I will simply use bungee cords to affix it the rear grab bar and tow hook.

    It's a shame nobody makes a storage bag/cooler that could be secured on the huge swim platform.

    Expensive but a good idea for holding gear or a cooler. A frew friends of mine have made DIY setups similar to this out of PVC.

    Thanks for the link!

    I like the coolermate. It is pretty much what I am looking for, except without the cooler. If it was $100 instead of $249 I would love it.
