Water toys?

Anyone here have water toys? My love since about 5 is being on the water and going fast. I grew up around jet boats but wanted something more nimble and easier on the wallet.

Last year I picked up a 2012 Yamaha FZS. It is mildly modified and has around 265 hp, ski will do 74mph on GPS all day long and gets there very quickly. Here is a picture of it as well as the trailer I built for it last winter.

If anyone ever wants to build something out of metal let me know... its a new hobby but I love doing it. My next project will be rock slider / steps for the truck.

there is a lean Honda F12 on there... not a rocket but a great machine!

Used ones in the NW are always high priced to me but there is usually a deal to be had.

very nice! I would love a pontoon but we camp a lot and it makes getting two trailers over pretty difficult... Friend of mine just bought a new mastercraft. Very nice boats!

Very nice! Diesel Matt, myself, and others(not sure if this will be a g2g or not) are going to Wynoochee Lake rec area for mem day weekend. The water will be a lil cold but there's a boat launch and plenty of boats out there. If no plans you're more than welcome to come hang out! We're going up the Wednesday before mem day cause the campground kinda small and our trailers only fit into a few spots. Loop A is reservable tho.
