Beach House sponsons at RXP-X
What’s special in Beach House sponsons? For example Mr. Zapata using them on the majority of his skis for closed course racings. Just for your information I have attached some photos of his STX-R and Zapata hull with BH sponsons. Also you can find BH on his “new” GTI with two engines.
So what is the idea of having short sponsons in closed loop? What is the difference between long and short in CC? Did any one tried short sponsons on RXP, RXP-X hulls in CC?
I have found some online stores (e.g. http://www.watercraftwerks.com/index...acturers_id=22) with BH sponsons… but no short sponsons available for RXP or RXP-X. Is STX-R 1200 02-05 will be suitable to RXP-X with slight modification?

The thing with Zapatas Hull is that its not the same as a rxp or rxp-x hull. Also he runs with trim tabs and his ride plate moves somehow as well. That is on the red RXP looking ski anyways.
His new ski is something else altogether.
The best thing you can do to your rxp-x for CC racing is to drop the sponsons. Trust me!
Take them down by 20-25mm the lower you go the more aggresive they will be. Also I would get a lowering block and new handlebars for the steering.
There is not 1 rider that rides a RXP or RXP-X in the british championship without dropped sponsons, It is hands down the best handeling setup. R88

Here is 1 pic of a setup but it has trim tabs as well. This is James Bushells Boat from a while ago.
