    Miami to bahama ski recommendations.

    I'm a 2 stroke ski guy. But for this trip a 4 stroke would be alot more logical for both reliability and fuel economy.

    Looking for ski recommendations to tackle the waves.

    I'm used to 2 seater Polaris's. But I realise that I'm going to probably have to go with a newer yami or kawi.

    Do you have a riding group that you would be going with to Bimini?
    If yes, the other riders in the group should be able to provide some input on hull brand/models and related 'good to know' info.

    Would you be buying new or used?

    Riding with passenger on open ocean water?

    Do you have prior experience riding in big water?

    Currently in the planning stages. But would try to find a group.

    Used ski. Unless I find a dealer sale I cant pass up.

    More then likely single.

    Mainly inland lakes, but also sailed on a 42ft sailboat off the florida keys.

    Find a used Yamaha FX HO. 2006+ would be great

    How long does that take?

    A KAWASAKI ULTRA non-supercharged would be a good boat for that run. Plenty if storage, and the hull was designed for off-shore riding.
