    In about 1 to 1.5 ft chop, the rxtx was still kicking Yamaha's ass. Seadoo is much easier to fill gas at gas station and on water. You can get to the trunk in seadoo while riding not yamaha. Yamaha I can fit a 6.5 gal jug nicely which I like. I heard alot of bad reliability of seadoo so we will see.
    I do easy riding so both skis are good so far.

    Well you’re gonna need that easy fill up because it’s got a 15.9 Gallons versus the 18.9, see I like the huge glove box the Yamaha gives us I generally put my water bottle in there when I when I drive. No why would I want to open up the whole trunk just to get A swig of water. See everyone’s different I did not buy the Sea-Doo because of the small gas tank. And I didn’t like the seat. I also like the fit and finish on the Yamaha much better. It looks more luxurious And classy The CD reminds me of a crotch rocket

    I rode my wife's new 2019 FX Cruiser SVHO this weekend. Wow smooth ride. I ride in the bay chop. It was hard to keep the RPMs down during break in. Nice cruiser ski.

    Not a fan of the dash at this time. I am sure I will learn where everything is in time.

    You need to be EXTREMELY careful riding with a gas can in your hull like that. If it even leaks a little bit of fuel, it will evaporate into the compartment and explode from any spark. Not a good idea to store it in there.

    The front storage compartment is not air tight sealed from the engine compartment. The engine compartment has exposed electrical connections at the battery and potentially elsewhere. Plus a running engine complete with ignition coils, etc.

    Normally there should not be open sparks inside the engine compartment, but shit can happen.

    You do not want to risk creating a potentially explosive air:fuel mixture trapped inside the hull.

    Wow, didnt think about it, thanks. I bought a deep blue superrack so I can carry 17.5 gal of fuel (fits my 5,6. And 6.5 gal gas cans). Original plan was to carry one of each 6.5 gal jugs in seadoo rxtx and Yamaha. Looks like I be buying another superrack for the seadoo.

    Very interested on the ride difference between the two. We found our '17 FX SVHO to be wetter than our Sea doo's. The ST3 hull on the TX was supposed to handle the chop better than others...?

    Just got back from 80 miles on Indian river and in chop in which I can’t even hold on at wot, the seadoo was pulling away. Difference is I am 50 lbs heavier and have a superrack with 5 gal fuel tank still full and seadoo has only a cooler in the back like the pic I posted. Both skis have gps and seadoo showed 69.1 mph and yahama showed 68.9 mph, granted we just ride like normal sit up position. When doing h2h, seadoo feels like 2 mph faster hence I already bought RIVA stage 1 for the Yamaha.
