Hi Everyone, just putting it out there if anyone is planning a big ride between now and March 28 in Melbourne even mid week I'm keen to participate if there's room for a newbie. Missed the last Phillip Island ride for personal reasons. Rgds Kevin

Hi Peeps,

my husband and i usually launch from Scarborough/Redcliffe and go over to Moreton/Tangalooma, or launch from Bribie and follow through passage to Golden Beach.
Wanted to try a trip to Straddie/North Straddle, any ideas where the best point to launch from and whether there are any dodgy areas to avoid?

Cheers

Hi i am a newbie to jet skiing but totally love it! Hubby bought me a 260hp rxt seadoo for my birthday 9mths ago and we have mostly been using it on moogerah dam. I am terrified of sharks but want to maybe do a trip from cleveland to peel island just to get a bit of bay time in and see if i can keep my shark fear  wvunder control. Any tips anyone can give us for the trip would be most welcome. Also does your club do small rides from cleveland area or is it all done from gold coast?  shk

Hi Dave, hope to see you on the water soon  blma


I think you need to have a Boat licence to get a Jet Ski Licence, so you need both even if you dont use the Boat.

Hi to the group, we are Annette and Scott from the Gold Coast. Just sold our 2008 GTI 130 that we've bought new in 2009. The ski was sold with 480 hours on it. We do like long rides and go to Moreton Is often.
Bought a brand new 2016 GTX 155 Seadoo from the boat show. Now need to wait till 23rd of next month to take delivery. It's going to be a long wait. Hoping the new ski will be a better choice for the open water rides we do.
Looking forward to meeting you all.

Hi everyone.
I'm Kristo from Florida and just bought a Kawasaki stx12f. First day on the water with it had some overheating issues and not sure where to post to. Angelo would be great thanks.

Hi Angelo, welcome aboard!


Is your Ski new? If so take it to the dealer to have a quick look at .


If not make sure that the cooling hoses are all connected and that there are no leaks, especially into the hull. On the hose flush it to observe all cooling water outlets are flowing.


One of the main reasons for Skis to over heat is when the cooling passages of the engine block becomes blocked from salt build up and mineral deposits.


We have seen entire blocks packed full of salt at Jet Ski Services. Flushing after ever ride is the best way to prevent this.


Using an additive is also a great idea. Even if riding in fresh water as algae and sand are present there too. Often fresh water is high in mineral deposits too.


There are many products around. We use and recommend Extreme Flush as it is designed for Jet Skis and doesn't require any distribution bottles at all. It also contains a metal cleaner to keep the inside of the block clear.

I don't know why it said Angelo that was some sort of autocorrect. Well I took it to Kawasaki 3 weeks ago for the repairs so I don't know if they missed something or was the seaweed? This was my first time using it. First time he ski had been in water in 4 years. Flush worked fine water coming out both ends but in the water it was spitting out steam out of the front right.
