It’s called sea glass. It’s kinda grey/brown. I’d post a photo but they asked me not too until the official release later this month… but I could privately send it lol
Same as mine!
Congrats.
I'm driving 2800 miles one way to pick mine up on Friday.
No picture request from my dealer too.

Please send me pictures as I am told I am getting a 2022 but my dealer is awful and isn't giving at details. Do you know if there are any changes to the boat from the 21's

Very interested in the 252/255, never owned a jet boat so a little Leary. Can anyone ease my fears about sea weed and running in skinny water? I will be using this boat in the Florida Keys,trolling weed lines, fishing bridges,flats etc.
Didn't see if this was answered...but this is not a good match. Jets and weeds don't match

Did you have the rear starboard live well full? It goes without saying that the placement of the people makes a difference, but, on my 210 FSH I had a similar thing happen one day with three people onboard.

After I dropped them at the dock I went back out to a fave cove and went swimming. I could see the boat was listing to port, one of the transom tie down points was out of the water and the other was almost totally submersed. Then I realized I had not filled the live well. I got back in and filled the live well, jumped back in the-water and the boat was perfectly balanced.

Also don’t forget about the freshwater tank. I keep mine full and haven’t had any leaning issues

Is the fresh water tank located on the starboard side as well?

I personally thought it was some great engineering on Yamaha’s part to design the live well needing to be full to ride even side to side. Filling it is part of my launch ritual.

I'm wondering if anyone on here has installed a trolling motor on your FSH and connected it to the Simrad Go system. I've been trying to read everything out there on the subject, as I know I'm going to get one eventually (when they are back in stock) and will probably be using it for SpotLock/Anchor Lock and maybe do some routing. I've heard that the MG Xi5 can be linked up to the Simrad. Anyone done it? What features do you like/use the most? I've heard Rhodan is coming out with one that will link up, but I don't think it's out yet. Anyway, I'd love any feedback anyone has on this. Thanks!

I haven't... yet.

I'm adding Ethernet and NMEA networking to all of the electronics on my boat.

I have all the components (including the NMEA Gateway kit for my MotorGuide Xi5) staged in my living room. My wife reminds me every day that I need to finish that project so she can have her living room back.
