Was at the boat show Thursday, very few bay boats seen. Checked out the waverunners for a friend and am amazed that Yamaha is all sold out, almost the entire line, through this year! One or two in certain models are available from different dealers, but if you like a particular model, get in line.
Seadoo ships the waverunners without electronics, so that’s their bottleneck. Crazy, right?
Very few bay boats at the show, and the biggest engine I saw was an outboard 900hp! (Twin props on a single, stearable screw, the motor stays fixed and only the lower unit turns).
Show seemed smaller this year than years past. Listened to Jim H from the Fisherman mag talk on stripers and ran into the guy doing the seminar on Sheep and got some tips from him.
We had an issue with the engine end of last year that is tbd whether it was just gas, or the fuel pump, so we’re dropping it in prob in April and will see. If we have to get the fuel pump done, we might, but will be looking to repower likely this year. Nice 4 stroke 60’s are available for our skiff from all the major manufacturers.
