    I hope so. Will be buying a new ski and a new boat. Looks like a GP and a 242 E-Series. Might buy a new standup as well, depending on what Yamaha has to offer.

    The FX is the best ski in Yamaha’s lineup for towing. Period. HO and SVHO engine choice is a little more complicated. The supercharged engine requires Premium fuel. Might not be an issue if you...

    2-2.5 MPH below RPM at 950 MSL is very respectable on a GP. Some achieve parity, but that occurs mostly at sea level and after a lot of fine-tuning. Congratulations, well done.

    Been following your build since the start and very happy you are seeing big numbers now. Lot of hard work and obstacles on the way to get where you are now.

    I’m with Chris on this one. I bought a 2007 new and owned it until 2011 with zero problems. But I wouldn’t buy one today. 300/310 or an FX....

    Thank you. The property I looked at was stunning in the pictures but unfortunately needed a lot of when I inspected it in person despite being only ten years old.

    We have about two dozen SVHOs in our group, spread among the FZ, FX and GP platform. Most with Stage 1 or 2 but a few Stage 3 as well. Not a single cracked head.

    Both have been data-logged on the same GP, so there is data. Unfortunately, the crew that did it do not post the results on the web.

    They certainly did fix the pump and that was long overdue. I gave no reference to the pump tunnel or the transom in my post. The former is more than adequate for Stage 2 speeds and the later can...

    I have to admit, all these reports about bad handling with stock ride plate and porpoising with the Riva on the new FX is a big turn-off for me. I had planned to buy a new 2020 since they finally...

    Take a look at the SXR 1500. I’m buying one myself since I can no longer ride the SXR 800 in Lake Mead. Perfect for cruising and no problem with registration. Big, stable, quiet and fuel efficient. ...

    I personally think the 2020 310X is the best looking PWC on the market for next season.

    That is exactly what I would do as well if I had piston problems on an Ultra. We use the Wössner pistons on high-horsepower Turbo-Hayabusas a lot and they are great.

    I will just address a few of the points you made in your essay.
