Sunday I took the spark on a 90 mile ride. 45 miles of it was in the Gulf of Mexico. I'm tired but the spark did rather well. When the gulf got choppy I had trouble keeping up with the yamahas but it worked out well. It was a loop from Pensacola beach to destin and back using the gulf and the intercoastal waterway.

Nice!!! How did the spark do on fuel?

curious, I'm in debate-mode between spark and GTI 130 and my concern with spark was if I'm more about doing touring than sport in rougher tidal waters. This sounds like a reason to stick with spark though ... still uncertain

Dont get the spark for rough water unless you are ok doing 20~25mph. Spark is good on gas but it's rough in the chop so get a bigger ski if you want more comfort. I love my spark though.

I made a 110 mile round trip on my 2up HO IBR in glass water, cruising at about 30-35. Fuel alarm was angry when I was idling back in to the ramp. I was getting really nervous towards the end. I was riding with a guy on a yamaha vx deluxe, and he has a ton of fuel left, but we didn't have a way to transfer any. Plus I didn't have a clamp to get that water line that can allegedly be clamped somehow to tow back.

110 miles in glass water! Sounds awesome! Where was that at? I would have been nervous too. Did you get down to zero bars of fuel? I'm surprised to hear that the Yamaha had plenty of fuel left. The guys I rode with used 3/4 of a tank doing the 60 mile leg of our trip.

Yeah I'm surprised a yamaha didn't burn a full tank within 2 hours lmfao, My buddy has a FX140 and the **** thing burns through its (60L?) Tank in about 3.5 hrs. It's brutal.

Was on Table Rock Lake in southwest Missouri, when the water was still "wet suit cool" and there was little to no boat traffic. I don't remember if the gauge was showing zero bars or flashing one, but it took 8 gallons to fill it back up. It was close. Anybody ran one out of fuel? I've never run a fuel injected motor dry, I'm not sure how hard it would be to get restarted.
