My New Jet Ski Fishing Machine At The Expo
Thursday afternoon I watched Albert and Crew at Martins custom structures in Gloucester Virginia skillfully put the finishing touches on my newly rigged for fishing 2012 Yamaha FXHO PWC. They had been busy for several days and it was crunch time to put it all together in time for me to get it up to the Mid Atlantic Saltwater Fishing Expo in Richmond Va. I was invited by Kevin Kirsh to have one of my skis on display for the event and I wanted bring the new one up for the show
The ski came out great and it was a pleasure to talk to the many people that stopped by to look at the first class welding and design, Albert never lets me down. I am really looking forward to making some final wiring connections and getting the ski wet.
The show was a great time with many vendors and great crowd, I enjoyed meeting everyone and took some pictures and passed out a lot of calenders that Multi Print in Hampton gave me. Here are some pictures of the final prep and the debut at the Expo. I finally brought it home last night for my wife to see. She can't wait to have hers completed soon.

Wow 1st Class!
I can wait to here how it runs offshore compared to your SUV and even your friend's FX HO older hull. Many are wondering how 7 more inches of hull and a deeper vee design is working out for the 2012 skis. You are the best to judge because you run a true heading to the fishing grounds on a regular basis in mixed seas.
Let us know please! and Good luck with the skis!

Thanks, with the additional 12 gallon fuel cell I should have a range of about 160 miles. The black things at the back sides are 500 watt water proof speakers for the Fusion Marine stereo that is mounted on left side of the dash. I also put under water lighting and navigation lights on it.

Slightly off topic, WTH kind of replicated fish is that in front of "Dr. Julie Ball"? Damn thing looks like a large-mouth bass, except the dorsal fin and mouth aren't quite right and it's got some fierce looking teeth...!?!
