    Ive had a 19 tx in rough water and it’s one of if not the best hull for rough water that ive rode. The handlebars are adjustable so you can ride standing up comfortably.

    I'll relate my experience with a '17 RXT-260 used in the Gulf of Mexico. Although the conditions aren't as abusive as they are in the Atlantic, they can be severe enough to test the durability of the hull. I've put 225 hours on it in two years and the hull is rock solid. As a reference, the previous ski I used was a '09 FZS and the hull was shot in 200 hours. One of the outstanding features of the Sea-Doo is the Ergolock seat design which greatly reduces arm strain.

    Which materials is that hull made with?

    CM-Tech or the predecessor type?

    Kev......4 skis 4 broken hulls??? You must have really tough conditions where you ski...our ST3 hull is much better in the chop than our S3 hulls were.

    Yam fx hull just cracks with hard use . It rough on the south coast of England most of the time hard chop just pounding the hul.
    I am building a fiber glass hull for a 2016 fx.
    The kawa has good hull but is very heavy on fuel.
    Had a few seadoo. how's the new model on fuel my old rxt 260 red and black had some issuse with the engine mounts but nothing that could be fixed.
