  1. Jetboaters Exuma 2016 trip videos, Jun 26, 2016
  2. robert843

    Here are my videos from the Jetboaters.net Exuma 2016 gathering we had an awesome time thanks to all involved. My videos start on day three of the trip as due to weather we had to move our launch day up a day and life got in the way and I could not make the advanced launch date. The guys were more then willing to go back to the original date but for saftey of the group I told them to go ahead and launch and I would fly into Nassau and catch them from there so that is where my adventure starts. The members on the trip where @1948Isaac @Andy S @Ramblin Wreck @JROD and I. Hope you guys enjoy the videos and I know there are more videos to come as I have seen previews of them from the other guys and they look incredible I cant wait to see them as well.

    Since I'm now leaving town tonight, Tuesday, 6/14/2016 around 6 pm, I have updated my track to start then. This will allow me to get to Fort Lauderdale in time to leave on Thursday morning.

    For those that want to live vicariously through our travels, you can track/stalk us via my DeLorme inReach satellite device. Others that have a tracking device and would like to share theirs are welcome to post them in this thread.

    I have my map set to only show tracking after 8:00 am (EST) on Wed, June 15th, this way all you will see is the current track keeping things clean.

    Here is a link to my inReach, https://share.delorme.com/AndrewSmith224 no password is needed.

    For just a Bimini run 5 gallons of fuel is more then enough. @Ramblin Wreck has a picture of his fxho set up for the exumas trip in the exumas thread. I would just bring snacks and eat at Bimini Sands it really isnt that expensive there $10-$15. I'm planing to eat just about every meal out once I get to Bimini this year.

    Last year I found the 2.5 gallon cans sat right on the ski on their own which made life easier I didn't have to support any of the weight just get it up there and press the button

    Yes its 7.5 gallons. My Kawasaki Ultra holds 20.6 gallons in the tanks so with the 7.5 gallons I will be carrying aprox 28 gallons. In Ideal conditions my ski averages 5-6 mpg but in the ocean its reduced pretty heavily to closer to 4 mpg depending on conditions. So this should give me a range of 112 miles our longest stretch is about 95 miles so this is leaving my close to a 20% reserve. If the conditions are good though I probably wont even need to refuel and should be able to make it on my factory fuel tank. I may throw another 2.5 gallon on @Andy S boat just to be safe but we will see. The storage on my ski is massive I could in theory carry everything I needed for this trip on my ski but with the luxury of Andy being there with a boat I have a few items I would not have brought other wise on his boat such as my Drone, Laptop and some food items. Others then those items I will carry all my clothes, snorkel gear and safety equipment with me.
