    Getting my Fat ass Back on the Ski ??

    Any input, Im a big guy 250ish lbs, I have a 1200 GP Yamaha, When I fall off it almost impossible to get back on when I have my fishing rack on the back, thinking about a ladder system on the back or something, look at my profile pic. you will see what I mean, any one else have this issue. ???

    Got a killer deal on two of these, 10 hrs each, trailer included, $2000 could not pass up, just a little tippy in rough water, when I hook into a big halibut this fall that should be interesting

    maybe you should consider a boat.

    [QUOTE=no_more_rice;1718721]$2000 for two GPRs? Awesome deal - I guess the price of GPRs has really dropped through the floor because everyone is going four stroke

    Love the thread title![/QUOTE]

ID:	242232 Try making a rack that swing or slides out. Just make sure the weight is the same when it sides. You need to find a Yamaha suv 1200 like this photo I hi jacked off the net. That ski would be great for fishing. Hell you could probably mount a deep sea fishing chair on it.

    Thankx for the picture, that would work awsome !!!, I strap my rack down, and when its full of fish, I think the swinging might off balance it to much, Im going to try a rope / pvc ladder that I roll up and velco just under the rack, Ill test it this weekend at the lake instead of the ocean, its frikin cold up here in Eureka, CA. waters at 47 degree now. But the fish are bitting Thankx again !!!

    a.) don't fall off
    b.) figure out a way to make the fishing rig e able to swing out of the way to the side so you can get on the rear (do you have a rear step?)
