    Just bought another GP1200

    I got a beautiful 97. Its got about 190 hours. Hydroturf seat. Everything else is all original garage kept and in great shape. Unfortunatley the hull is cracked. So I am going to pickle the engine and use it as a parts ski for now. Heres some photos:








    I think I might just swap all the trim pieces with my ski and repaint mine. The red on this one and the seat looks way better than my blue 98.

    I was also looking at the rideplate and it looks alot longer than mine has two u shaped tunnels going through it. Where those any good?

    Wher is it cracked? Can you show some pics of the crack. Could be easily fixed.

    If you part it out let me know I could use a few things.

    Its cracked right along the bottom center and about 2 feet long. Yeah I'm sure it can be patched but I wouldn't want it to open back up when I am wave jumping so I'm not going to bother. It looks like he tried patching it before. Its pretty bad.

    If it was going to be used in rivers it would be fine but I'm not risking it for the ocean.

    I love that seat style.... that's the one thing I don't care for on the 97 is the red. WAY to much for me. Luckily my wife will be riding it I'll stick to the blue one also.....
    You should repair that crack and keep it - hell, even resell it for a nice profit!

    Goodluck!

    I looked into it but I think I am just going to swap over the hood and make my 98 Red. I prefer the blue as well but this red looks alot better then my faded and scratched blue.
