Default Jet Ski Poker Run next week to the Bahamas

For those who think boat poker runs are expensive, check out the $2200 run to the Bahamas on a jet ski/ waverunner:

Seas have been glass flat this week so they should have a good ride over next week if the seas stay calm. Last year I read about it and thought it was a cool idea to do once.

Good grief! Do those POS watercraft have enough gas to go that far?

The Bimini Road Rally is not for the faint of heart, as a trip into the Bermuda Triangle always brings uncertainty

LMAO!

Don't know about riding in a PWC poker run but I would love to make it from FL to the Bahamas on one of them.

I was a jet skiier for a while, most new skies hold at least 16gals of fuel. That should be plenty of gas. I think is only like 50 miles across, if the water is nice no problem. I did a run on Lake Cumberland in 2000 it was fun, dont think they do that one anymore.

Now that I got my boat I cant stand most PWC drivers. Oh well

Speedy,

I agree - when I'm on the boat, I hate jet skiers. When I'm on my jet ski, I hate boaters.

Kind of like when I'm driving a car, I hate pedestrians. But when I'm crossing the street I hate cars...

Of course! 55 miles from Palm Shores ( Singer Island )
to West End.

I can go at least 120 miles on my POS Polaris PWC.
