    We want a playful fun machine that is not overly fast and our river is usually very smooth water.
    Watercraft Journal has done reviews of the Yamaha EXR (link below) and the Yamaha EX.

    You might find the EX interesting.

    Yamaha has changed all of their hulls compared to years ago. The VX is now a larger and more capable machine. The EX is now the playful 'entry level' hull.

    That is a perfect way to describe it. I call it a "busy" ride. A lot more movement than my RXTX 300, I'll tell you that. Put it to you this way; my daughter got a new BMW 4 series hard top convertible (which she adores) and after getting the TRIXX she said "Dad, if I had to give up one or the other, I'd give up the Beemer".

    As a spark owner I often read forums, there is an official spark forum. and he has one factory problem - a crookedly installed engine, which subsequently cuts off the splines of the crankshaft or the shaft of the water cannon. I would immediately do the motor alignment procedure.
