Y’know it says quite a bit when a representative from corporate passes along a regular ol’ enthusiast’s YouTube video. In this case, it’s another video segment from Florida Keys resident and Yamaha WaveRunner lover Dean Baynon. Dean picked up a naturally-aspirated ’19 FX HO Cruiser not too long ago and is seriously racking up some hours on the machine; whether scuba diving for live lobster, swimming the coral reefs or just some plain ol’ wake boarding behind the runabout.
This time around, Dean shows how he is upgrading his FX HO Cruiser with the same Garmin Striker 4 GPS unit and transom-mounted transducer that comes standard on the top-of-the-line FX SVHO Limited. As he describes the kit comes complete from Yamaha’s Accessory Catalog, including the RAM mount, wiring to the battery, and from the GPS to the transducer out back, and all of the hardware to run the wiring through the hull. Dean does chose to run his wiring a little differently, but the result is still the same.
So if you’re looking for equal use from your Yamaha and are interested in stepping up your navigation abilities, check out the video below. It might be of some use for you:
