    Bimini Crossing - Ultra 300x

    Thought you Kawi guys would be interested in hearing about and seeing pictures of a ride to Bimini from Miami that happened yesterday. One of the skis is a spankin new Ultra 300x. I'm waiting to hear about fuel consumption information but it took about 3.5 hours to make the crossing in fairly choppy water. Riding with the 300 was a RXP, SHO, and 2 other Yamis.

    Here is a picture including the Kawi at the dock at Bimini Sands Hotel. I'll post more information and pictures when they get them to me.

    Other pics that might interest you. If you look at the pic on the original post you can see the fuel tank on the transom of the 300. We transferred it from a SHO where the fuel pump and lines were installed internally (you can fuel while under way) and moved it over for this trip so that the Kawi could refuel itself or any other ski on the trip if necessary. BTW...No modifications whatsoever to the ski. Transfers at about a gallon a minute.

    The best way to hear all of the details is go to Facebook and search Jetski Junkies. Ask all of the questions you want. Kevin is the one riding the Ultra 300x so ask him anything.

    The tank was purchased online for about $70. But the tank is only one component of the whole system. If you want to see more pictures plus a bill of materials then "mouse over" the pictures on this page.... http://www.iwannajetski.com/#!ski-mods If you do long range riding it really is a ideal setup. I can refuel wile underway without even opening the gas cap. If I leave the system open to the main tank I don't even have to use the transfer pump because as gasoline is used from the main tank it siphons from the auxiliary tank. The entire setup is about $400 as you can see in the bill of materials but that is nothing compared to other mods and this will extend your range by 70% on a SHO.

    The marine store. That particular one is the Chrysler male/female connectors. Chose those because they have the lowest profile.
