    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. Almost 700 miles of offshore travel #exumas2016

    Day 3 Nassau to Staniel Cay


    Day 4 exploring south of Staniel Cay


    Day 5 Exploring north of Staniel Cay


    Day 6 and 7 exploring around Staniel Cay and the return trip to Bimini


    Day 8 Exploring around Bimini


    Day 9 and 10 Exploring Bimini and return to Florida

    Look at the 33 second mark. Here's when my 1st camera woman @JROD's wife Trudie officially quit and I had to hire @1948Isaac's daughter Jasmine! Haha...so glad this was caught on video.

    This is a glance of our journey from Miami to Exumas Bahamas for a total of 10 days in the ocean. We had the opportunity of doing this trip with great friends,@robert843 @Ramblin Wreck @JROD @Andy S . We got to explore the Exumas, from Bimini Bahamas, Compass Cay, Chub Cay, Staniel Cay, Thunderball Grotto, Pig Island, etc. We had a run of 700 miles total. This was an epic adventure till the next one.

    Most definitely!

    If Yamaha will not sponsor you after such a great piece, then the Bahamian Govt should give you some sort of free stay as your video is a pure commercial for the Bahamas. Really amazing job Isaac!

    Is the folding windshield supposed to have a gap like that or is a latch or something broke? I didn't know the middle windshield could go beyond the frame of the fixed windshield.

    Great video showing how beautiful the Bahamas can be!

    You got a good eye . My windshield for some reason came out beyond the point of stop. I had to take it apart in chub cay and keep it open for the rest of the trip. This also happen to me on my ar192 last year... Also I know someone else that had the same issued, so if you have a bit of rough water, keep that windshield open because they flex with movement.

    Yea I imagine the windshield could take a pounding in rough seas. Looked like your boat did a great job of handling the open seas. One of my favorite parts in the video was the drone shots of you guys zooming around the shallows! Man it was just sublime looking! Maybe one day I'll get lucky enough to make a trip like this!

    LOL.. I am hopping for a new 2017 boat or a sponsorship at least from someone...lol DID you comment Rainbows and sunshine in youtube, because when i saw the massage i was laughing for a while.. Good thing Robert843 Capture raw footage of our way back to bimini , and it is more realistic for people to see the 5 to 7 footers wave we came across between nassau and chub cay.
