    GP1800 Riva plate with Jims mod question

    I have an 18 GP with a Riva plate and grate and stg 2 mods less retainers. I'm considering upgrading the retainers, and or a Jims mod to the Riva plate. My question is what are realistic gains with the plate mod, but more importantly to me is are there any handling compromises that come with it. It seems like if the plate mod allows for a bit more speed that the ski would be riding lighter on the water and therefore might be a bit more dancey (word, lol) and less secure feeling. Thanks for any feed back and hope y'all had a Merry Christmas.
