Recently I was tasked with kitting out this 2019 Waverunner FXHO for fishing, it turned out pretty darn cool with some cool features installed

Watched your latest video, those trolling rod holders are really cool. Love the way that none of the gear needs additional holes drilled in the ski I wish GC products were around when I was rigging my ski. 

Some more ideas for you to think on:

- Chilly bin mounted waterproof tackle box (sized to fit a standard Plano)
- Transducer bracket mounted on to boarding ladder bolts 
- Floatation collars/pods like the Aussie's use
- Livebait tank external to chilly bin
- Windshield - not for everybody, but it's been a game changer for me
- Anchor system - not sure where to even start with this one, but someone clever might think of something!

Sea-Doo did something really innovative with the their Fish Pro. Yamaha must be feeling it, there are so many Fish Pros around! Yamaha really dropped the ball on the fishing side of things. Having said that, even the Fish Pro is conservative in it's design. Anyway, keep inventing things that the major manufacturers have failed to do Thumbs Up
