    Best hull for speed in the slop.

    Getting back in Jetski's after a long time off, had Seadoo GTX DI, Polaris 140, Kawi 250x was the last.
    Big debate between the big three, Kawi 310 vs Yami GP1800 vs Seadoo 300.

    The Kawi being a much heavier ski, in a good chop for the "average rider" (not a crazy racer) how much faster and in control will the Kawi be over the other 2? night and day or just a little? Not so much being nimble and cornering just eating up chop at speeds and not catching air. I remember my Kawi 250 felt like a speeding tank compared to the Polaris 140 in some sloppy stuff.

    For example Riva stage 1, Kawi 73mph/Yami 77mph if both throttles were pinned but it was choppy enough that the skis were not hooking up completely is it safe to say the Kawi would make up that 4mph because it is that much heavier?

    Our Doo's with the ST3 hull seem to pretty good in the chop and dry, better than our last hulls, and we got soaked on the Yammi....

    The Yamaha FX hull has a reputation for being good in the chop.
