612 miles offshore trip in 4 days on 250Xs
Expedition team covered almost 400 miles in 2 days. Rested on day 3 then cruised the remaining 200+ miles on day 4.
Weather condition during the trip was slight to moderate with a couple of brutal squalls.

Looks like a fun trip!
Is that you Mitch with the yellow bill on your cap and
the Shell sticker on the blue Ultra?
Looks like the Ultra's are holding up pretty well for you. Good to
see. What are your average hours now?

Nope, I'm on the far right on the first photo. After 600 miles in 4 days, all 5 ultras' entire valve cover and supercharger underneath the exhaust was FULLY coated with salt that looked like white frosted icing on cake. Pulled out the plug boots. Still bone dry. No hint of corrosion on the plugs. After rinsing, engine looks pristine again.
Average hours now on the 40s. Mine's at 45.

Awsome!!! You are a very lucky man!
How much fuel did each ski use for the trip?
05-27-2007, 08:45 AM #8
roughly 600 liters. 1 mile per liter.

great pictures looks like you had this planned out pretty good
how did the ultras held up the entire trip? 600 miles of vibrations and salt is a pretty good abuse at a very shot time.
way to go guys awsome
