mobile coverage at sea is notoriously bad (not many transmitters!!!) and the CG get a bit frustrated as they cant direction find on your signal when you put out a distress call.
I do keep the phone and GPS device in a waterproof case but it's a very good point and I fully intend on getting a handheld VHF very soon. Thanks for the advice.
Thanks for the info, it's reassuring to hear positive things from another futura owner
Total respect, what an awsome little vid that is!!!
Thanks for posting that. Talk about big air, what conditions would you say you were in.. 4/5/6?? I enjoyed that more than watching some box office hits
I have owned a 3m Avon with a 15hp for the last few years and have had so much fun with it that I decided to swap my bike(CBR600) for a bigger faster SIB (before I get banned from driving
) - it's good to see that the Futura should offer similar frills to the bike!
I was thinking more of towing a wakeboard than skis as apparently they don't require so much grunt to pull - I'm not worried about doing massive jumps, just getting out of the water on flat sea would be enough for me. Have you tried towing a wakeboard?? also how do you tow, do you use a ski harness with a pulley set up?
