    Sounds about right. I reported the following in 06.
    -2002 GPRXP 800lbs.
    -6 gallons gas
    -closed loop cooling with very large heat exchanger.
    -SST mounts
    -Jpipe and rotax waterbox
    -06 pump with 2" extention.
    -Hull was completely dry, and had not been in water for 2 years.
    -Battery was mounted across from waterbox in rear.
    -Internal IC.
    -Balance point was within an inch of the stock point.

    ...and just like EVERY conversion on the water, they will all be a little different for balance point/weight, since everyone has their own way to build a mousetrap.

    And could we get down with this hull weight once and for all..

    Are the new 03 hulls really lighter? How much? (No guesses thanks!

    Thanks!

    i picked up an 07 hull the other day. I'll try to weigh it vs an empty 00 hull that I have.

    weighed my GPR-1 yesterday. full tank, fire ext, battery, tow ropes, dry box, ect. ready to run. did not have a chance to figure out the balance point.


    830 lbs.

    i thought it was going to be very close to a stock '00 gpr, but within 2 lbs!!!! Dam. why doesn't yamaha offer a 2010 gpr with this motor? it is sooo fun and user friendly.

    No,

    Why would You think this is not real world?
