    Cmon-there must be enough out there by now for someone to have a piccie or 2
    Actually trying to get a 'nose to nose' shot of the vx and gpr-any vx will do-even the 110 ones.
    Thanks

    Can't decide between building a conversion, or modding a VXR-Basically it's down to size. Love the gpr hull-better than vx-I found the VXR hull a wet ride, but with the vx 95% of the work is done!

    Thanks Dp-exactly what I wanted.
    As a conversion builder-what's your take on things? Building a boat for the surf-NOT rough- just wavejumping.
    VXR or conversion???
    THanks again-looks like pretty crap weather out there!

    Yeah, the weather is crappy as always...high 80's clear skies. calm to moderate seas most of the time, beers cold, girls hot etc, etc......lol.
    From my experience the vx does'nt feel like it wants to launch off waves too good, it rides very flat and stable. If you are building one with a 2-stroke that would end up being much lighter, then that might work.
    I really like the GPR for an all around bike, the vx has similar aspects but i havent felt one that was lighter.
    Hope it helps.
    Oh,PM message box has been cleared, Thanks.

    A GPR-SHO is not gonna be a good boat to wavejump. Even after cutting out the hull liner to make room for the oil pan that engine sits real close to the hull. A friend of mine had a small bolt fall under the engine on his & it cracked the hull. One hard landing could put the pan into the hull & crack it. That big tall heavy engine also raises the CG a little...makes it more tippy.

    +1 on that. Also the vx doesn't require any cutting so things will fit right in making the build a lot easier, Julio...
