YES BILL!!! SNAP MATE.

My dealer reckons there may be as little as 25-30 blue's in the country at this point. Exclusivity feels good. (for now).

Congrats.

Either the Jimny is very small or that boat is huge?

You are going to need a snorkel on the Jimny for effortlessly launches of the kayak. :laugh:

Also got to say I think the Blue/black roof is my favourite colour combination so far. Got a Yamaha TZR850 the same colour so maybe it's biasing me, but it does feel like Suzuki have popped over the fence and raided Yams paint box.... Great colour combination.

Said it before and I'll say it again. My blue Gen3 will most likely get a black roof one day..

Sea going kayaks wich is most common around here is around 5-6 meters :)
A collegue of mine carry his on the roof of his jimny, it looks great of course.

Looks class Bill! I must say I fell out with the suction cup rod racks, they deteriorated quite bad and I ended up losing one on a windy day. The magnetic vac-a-rac is quality though. Niceone hope to see more pics on your fishing trips!

Bill,
a small mountain climbing car,
a small boat,
a fishing rod,
a post from The Bishop.
Do you know something you are not telling us?

mmm, I wonder if we are reading the same book? :ohmy:

Sea kayaks are usually quite long and narrow. Mine's a fishing kayak which tend to be short and wide to give a stable platform for, well, fishing. Mines 12ft long.
