    Possible Winter Project.

    Hey everyone,
    I'm new to this forum and fairly new to pwc as well. Winter is looming and i need a project to make it go by faster. I have an opportunity to buy a 2000 Yamaha XL700 hull. Apparently the engine blew and its been sitting for a while. I would just like to know how much work, if possible, it takes to put in a gp1200cc motor into the hull. I've done some research and know that the hull is the same as the gp model. Looking for some input from anyone that has done this before. look forward to getting some information! Thanks alot in advance.

    hey good2go16. thanks for the reply and welcome. If all goes as planned, I'll have the hull in my garage by tomorrow afternoon where i will start touching up any cosmetical imperfections. Other then the engine, what else will need to be replaced? Speedometer? Wiring? any help always appreciated. Thanks again.
