    Hull Changes in the FZ for 2010

    Just noticed that the 2010 FZ boats have what looks to be a splash deflecting ridge just under the bow rub rail and above the front bow ring. Has anyone heard about a hull redesign for the FZs already? anything else they changed? Compare the 09 and 10 images and you'll see it.

    Actually, it looks like 2 different deflectors/ridges one on top of the other.

    I didn't believe it when I read it, but you're right.

    Here's the 2009 FZR


    Compare that to the 2010 FZR:


    As of yet, I have heard no official word from Yamaha concerning the change.

    Dont be fooled by those photos.
    The first pic is the the Fx sho bottom and the last pic is the real fzr/Fzs bottom.
    Even on Yamaha web site they have those pics confused, but good you noticed, when your a yamaha man, you see every detail. lol

    It took me some time and alot of photo comparisons but i finally realized the SHO hull under the FZR deck after i started this thread. Ride plate was also a giveaway. Funny how yami decided to put official photos of a pre-production unit up on their site for the introduction of the FZR.

    Glad to hear the FZR hull is not the SHO hull even though the dimensions are essentially the same.

    Well, that's just dandy. Don't I look like a horse's arse?

    Please forgive my error.
