The last two days were beautiful! I had not used ones of my my skis for a couple of months, so I put it through the numbers covering 190 miles in two days. From all over the lower Chesapeake Bay to 20 miles off shore of Virginia Beach. Here are just a couple of the the things I saw or caught.


Lots of Spadefish at The Chesapeake Light Tower. I jumped in yesterday and speared a couple for dinner.




Cape Henry Light





New Point Comfort Light.



Hundreds of Rays in the shallows around the light.





Old Point Comfort Light on Fort Monroe.



Pretty boat heading out by Fort Monroe.

Watched these guys reel in a nice Red Drum in open waters off of Virginia Beach. I caught and lost two Cobia in the same area, saw over thirty.





Saw lots of Military Craft around.

Walk like a butterfly sting like the Navy Ship Wasp!




Yes the Navy does have Jet Skis. Here are two "Navy Support" guys working with some special boats. They were on Yamaha SUV 1200's, I have four of these. Still my favorite PWC.






I spent a lot of time in these thirty years ago.



I took Doug of North Carolina out on a trip this week. Now he is looking to buy one for himself.



I am so glad I put this 1200 Davit off of my driveway a couple years ago. It make it easy to shuffle my jet skis around to different trailers.

Of course I took pictures of some of the wild life I saw.


Chickadee heading back to the house on my dock.



My 22 pond Maine **** cat is thinking "Show Me The Fish"!



This crab on my dock was trying to scare me with his shadow.



Lots of Black Skimmers.



Close up I took of a pelican.




Oyster Catcher.



Sea turtle off of Virginia Beach.



Tern looking for lunch.

The power is truly awesome!!!! The 46 is nothing when compared to the 47. Just my .02! We did a lot of insert and extracts in the 47 while in Afghanistan.
Well yeah, it has twice the engines. Just referring to the ride. Having only been in the 46 and 53. Different lifting styles so it is not fair to compare but the 53 was like riding in a Cadillac, if it wasn't for the impending 15 mile hump upon landing I would have fallen asleep. The 46 seemed like it was punching it's way through the air. Just curious if the 47 felt the same way.

@brian, great pictures as usual. Havn't seen a bad one posted yet.
