    Aftermarket hull for a 300x?

    Hi

    A friend of mine who builds race hulls and race boats has asked me to find out if their is a demand for people wanting an aftermarket hull to transplant all of their 300x gear and top half of the hull onto?

    Basically the aftermarket hull will be one primarily designed for flat water use and have a much higher top end than the standard 300x hull in calm water, however it wont be as nice in the rough stuff.

    Would something like this sell?

    regards,

    Hi

    My friend has never been involved in pwc's before and doesn't have any knowledge of their existing turnover and more importantly people's desire to want to change the characteristics of their hull. That's why I posted this thread just to get a general consensus.

    I think I'm the Guinea Pig and is where my friend may have seen this opportunity come about knowing he can borrow my pwc on an unlimited basis!, but he doesn't want to invest time riding my pwc and developing a hull with totally different riding characteristics but one that is compatible to fit with the top hull and utilitse all existing mechanicals and electricals only to find out nobody is interested.

    regards,

    My guess is that if he built one that produced a good top speed (over 80) he cold sell about 10 total. Most kawi riders want a hull that can handle and the price to produce such a custom piece will drive the rest away.
