I got my Christmas present early this year, I took delivery of a year old Ribeye Sports 7.5 with a Yamaha 250hpdi lump on the back.
The whole family come down to Poole with me for the first launch, I think the cold must have got to them! When I went out this weekend, all I got was "I'm not going back on that thing until the *?*!ing sun is shining", what's all that about?
Anyway, Boat is amazing, even with full safety kit (including 6man life raft), 250Lts of fuel, 4 adults, 2 children, still managed to get 70kph out of her!
My question, I am looking at taken her a bit further a field than Lulworth Cove, she is already fitted with Nav Lights etc, but I was surprised that the instruments on the console didn't light up (OK, I'm still quite new to this game!). Was it that the dealer was too lazy to connect up the bulbs, or is this something that Yamaha over looked on the design?
I have had a quick look at the back (bending double, trying to squeeze my now, over indulged Christmas stomach between the jockey seats), but couldn't see anything that was as obvious as "connect to battery for light!".
My other question, well advice, how easy is it fit a Yamaha Fuel Management Meter? Can you rely on them a bit better than the crap one that was fitted to my car? Don't get me wrong, I would never plan to get as low on fuel as those fouls having there picnic on the hard shoulder on the M5 every Bank Holiday!
