    What is your opinion of the Yamaha SUV?

    Looking for your opinion of the Yamaha SUV? I have a lead on one and everything that I have read has been good so? Anything I should be worried about? Ski will have a new motor and a near perfect hull and all gauges work. Jet pump is great shape. I believe that it is between an 02 or 04?

    I have seen some of his videos.The way he has them set up is seems to work well for fishing. They seem pretty durable and well built.

    I was SUVdude on the forum when I first discovered this website. I had my SUV for 5 seasons and had a blast with it. I primarily used it to pull tubes and people on skis or boards. This boat (and it's almost a boat) did remarkably well.

    But, like most of us here, we upgraded and went into faster skis, and the tubing is gone.

    I sold my SUV to a guy who has a place in Largo, FL and in New Jersey I think. He already had one up there and wanted the same boat for down here. Actually ran into him at Shepards in Tampa almost 2 years ago and when I spotted my old ski and we ended up having lunch at Shepards that day and I have pics of how massive that thing is next to my SHO and event he GPR

    Don't know why they still don't make them anymore, thought they had a better market for them. Ski would have been awesome with a 4 stroke in it.

    There are a couple of 4 stroke engine conversions in SUV hulls running around.

    If he was in AC a few weeks ago at Trump Marina, I saw it. Had some weird seat covers.
