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.
You have been a huge inspiration to us on your jet ski. My husband has talk to albert over at martins customs about doing our jet ski's. I noticed on this new jet ski of your you didn't go with the wind shield, did you not like it? Also I saw kennys ( the purple one with the canopy) that is kind of the way I am leaning, do u think the canopy throughs off the balance? Safety first. what electronics are you using? I have been looking for jet ski fishing tournaments do you know of any?
Thank you for your time, maybe when we head up there to pick up ski's we can touch base.
Congrats to you, I am sure you will enjoy jet ski fishing and Albert will do a great job. I did not do a windshield on the new ones because I already have one with it. The canopy looks great and I am sure helps with the sun some but I feel it might get in the way when casting or fighting a large fish that is making circles around the ski. I have a Lowrance HDS-5 Gen 2.
