    I am 6 hours north Destin. So we make trips often. Used to trailer my 34 Baja and marina and island hop too. Great area.

    One tends to be thirsty and one is (kinda) fuel efficient

    Bigger fuel tank on the Ultra so similar cruise ranges?

    I know Gina’s Kawi cruising 5-5200 rpm around 42-45 mph she has a range of 80 miles. Not getting much more then that. My friends with the Yamaha FX SHO’s 12’ model has a range cruising at the same speed as the group usually gets around 80-85 miles to a tank.

    So I found a double trailer for my trip. Hopefully I can pick it up tomorrow and get the skis loaded on it. I have been at the shop and may be coming with two new skis. If one shows up tomorrow. I cant wait to get out there. Any other tips or routes to go would be much appreciated. I plan on Riding on Sunday for sure, maybe Saturday, and a couple other days next week.

    Do you know whether the trailer is properly road-trip ready?

    Tires are not older than seven years?
    Got a spare tire and the jack to do a roadside swap?

    Wheel bearings have been checked recently and grease seals are not worn?
    Salt water is no good for wheel bearings. The hub seals and the grease must be in good condition to keep the salt water out.

    All great questions. I bought a new one and pulled the spare off of my single trailer so I am good to go. I cant wait to get on the water. Bill D, I will be calling you tomorrow. Thanks for all the input. I did end up getting a GTX Limited and a Fish Pro.
