    Backwater Barnstormer: 2019 Yamaha FX SVHO WaveRunner



    It has become a bit of a litmus test for me in recent years. While incredibly unique in its topography, the narrow canals, serpentining routes through densely-packed cypress and mossy banks make the circuitous trails of Morgan City, Louisiana an exemplary test bed for new watercraft. Radical swings in weather quickly churn larger bodies of water into brutish chop. A steady stream of recreational boaters, concrete barriers and continual barge traffic all require honed reflexes and a craft responsive to input. In attending the annual Mudbug event, I’ve wily used it also as a proving ground of sorts.

    It's a new electric starter that only requires you to hit the button once, rather than keep it pressed as the engine turns over (again and again and again...). Just blip it, and the new OS communicates to the starter to keep cranking automatically until the engine fires.
