    Post #3 would apply to your SL 700 just the same as any other SL 2 seater.

    Sponsons, ride plate, and intake grate.

    No matter what you do, when 2 up riding, it will porpoise.

    These mods will help improve it, but not eliminate it.

    If I understand your question correctly,you don't like the way it rides in rough water (anything but smooth water)
    The tips X mentioned will help noticeably, The real fix will be a longer and heavier PWC ,like a SLT-Virage- or if really rough water ,a Genesis
