They are closed looped cooled which just means the salt water isn't passing thru the engine. It doesn't run any shallower than other manufacturers. Depending on the amount of seaweed I get mine in about 8" or so.

The ski these days are four stroke, very quiet and stealthy, great for the flats drifting. Here are some of my rigged skis.













Very nice Brian and i have to say you are at the forefront of Jetski fishing here in the states. I agree on the operator comment. Im also respecful of other fishermen no matter what watercraft i use.

No drilling screws in to your ski of any sort. I had a 18' wellcraft and have enjoyed fishing off the ski this summer more than the boat,maybe that's because I can get where most boats can't.
Capt i will keep my eyes open for it. Im always happy to support other 2coolers and their hobbies or proyects for profit. keep us posted on here when they are available.

Thanks everybody for the positive feedback! Im stoping today at Genes to look at both. Im not in search of the fastes or the most HP just a reliable machine. Seems like YAMAHA has the upper hand and SEA DOO has the looks... Guess there is no YAMADOO lol.

Yamaha will make a better fishing rig, Seadoo the better toy, both are quality machines, but the Yamaha will be more stable, now if you wanna beat the other guy to your spot, pick the Seadoo.

In the Galveston bay chop 40 MPH is fast enough. I rarely go WOT.

I have been researching both ski's as well. I think SeaDoo offers some nice cutting edge features but Yamaha has pretty close to the same features but they are mechanical instead of electronic. That might be something to consider.

You would think saltwater not flowing through the motor would be a major plus for Sea Doo

To counter-argue this fact I have heard that most rental companies use Yamaha only bc Seadoo can't compete with their bulk pricing. I'm not saying one or the other is better, but if money talks ...
