    Newbie question for Great South Bay ( L.I. riders) on best ski for the bay

    Hi Fellas,
    I was just about to pull the trigger on a Yamaha VX cruiser, then I ran into a docked rider ( and his buddies that agreed)who said get an FX as it handles way better in the GSB due to all the choppy waters from the traffic.He said the trim function also helps.

    Any advice on what ski is better for my needs as I never had a ski or boat before?
    I will also have a passenger on the back about half of the time.I live in Massapequa so will be in the Jones Beach/Robert Moses area

    Thanks for the help!

    P.S. I would love to join some riding groups or tag along with someone! The Harley is sold and I miss the rides!

    I had the FX, nice ski, but my '19 Seadoo RXTX with the ST3 hull is much better in the chop. Also closed cooling system in salt water may be a plus...

    Congrats on the ski! Good choice on the FX. A few years ago I had my FZR on the GSB (Bayport area) and the chop just beats you up. FX flew by me without a care in the world.
