    I am in the middle of making a ESKY / Fuel drum holder rack..... as over xmas I will be ridding everyday up and around the whitsunday islands , and we will be leaving from Mackay , so no matter what ski does the trip , it will need a good amout of fuel .

    Waz

    Sounds like an awesome trip. Did this with the GTX iS last year, 90 km off shore 1 way.
    Keswick island has 91.
    Hamilton has 91.
    Can't remember name of it, but there is 1 more island you can get fuel...

    Took quite a bit of octane booster lol.

    Have a blast mate, I know a few guys up there that regularly do a long distance trip... If you wanna T up with them let me know.


    On water re-fueling has to be one of the hardest things to do without dry land to stand on!

    carrying extra fuel the easy way

    Nice work, man! I'm looking at building one very similar for my FX SHO.
    Does it do a good job of draining the aux tank first?

    Here is how I did mine. Mouse over the pictures to see more details and a bill of materials at the end you can download if you wish. It is 12 gallons and does not change the handling of the ski at all. I uninstalled the pump and put it on a Ultra 300 (blue like yours) my friend was riding from Florida to Bimini. Worked flawlessly in rough conditions when racks were breaking apart, and straps were constantly coming lose. http://www.iwannajetski.com/#!ski-mods
