    Completed rigging Yamaha FX140

    Here are some photos of my completed setup. I towed it 4 hours from Houston down to Corpus Christie to launch at Bird Island Basin only to be told that PWC's are not allowed on Padre Island because they "disturb the beachgoers, fishermen, and sailboarders". I ended up having to leave it parked there for 3 days while I rode in a friend's boat. Big disappointment!

    Here are the 12v outlets that I installed. One is double usb for phone and gopro. The other is standard "cigarette lighter" for my handheld radio and whatever else I need.

    Here are some of the fish we caught. One nice 28" bull red, a few black drum, a bunch of speckled trout 15"-20", and a sheepshead that my buddy shot with a bow. We fried up about 20 more specks and sand trout for dinner last night at the cabin.

    I like the setup. I haven't had a chance to use the extra gas yet. Still trying to get a feel for range.

    Sorry to hear your being shut out here in Texas. Really a slick looking rig. Very nice.

    Nice setup. Question: How do you re-board should you fall off or decide to wade? Think chest-deep water, or where you can't even touch the bottom.

    Good question. I haven't thought that through! I suppose I exhaust myself pulling up over the side. I suppose I should practice that!
