    I just came back to Yamaha

    After riding Kawasakis for the last few years ( what a headache ), I've come back to Yamaha. I had a few 2006 FX HO's and they were great skis, but I had to be greedy and get the faster skis ( Kawasaki ). Let me tell you, I had so many issues with the Kawasakis'....torn supercharger belt, a blown super charger, and a blown engine on the other. I decided to dump the Kawasakis and get a couple of 2013 FX-SHO's. The wife loves them. We took them out this weekend on our maiden voyage, and I can't speak highly enough about the craftsmanship and stability of these watercraft. Damn, they're huge !

    Those tires rated for the weight? Trailer looks a little small.

    Congrats on the new skis. Based on the feedback on the Kawis, I suspect this won't end well
