    Opinions: Build GPRXP or repair slight hull damage on 05 RXP

    Since most of you guys have ridden both and know how much work it would take to build and if you had to do over again would you build another one... I can't decide wether to repair the bottom of the hull on the RXP or buy a GP hull and build a GPRXP... I have the knowledge to build a GPRXP but dont know if I'm biting off more than I can chew becuase I have a Super Air Nautique wakeboard boat that I'm trying to fix also... thanks

    dont worry about selling it, you wont want to once you get on it pull that throttle

    everything sells... its the price that will determin how easy you sell it.

    do a good neat job building it, and you will get good$$ for it

    I would like to know what makes gprxp conversions so much better than anything else in terms of speed? What is it that gives it that far advantage? I've never ridden one I would love tO know the riding conditions it has, eg in the surf, recreational riding, and obviously flat water blasting.. Cheers

    How much of the RXP hull needs repair, and what did you do to it?

    No need to muck up a perfectly good hull if just a minor repair. Now if it's delaminating, or structurally cracked, I'd do the gprxp.

    It's not delaminating but has 2 large gouges in the bottom and it is totally grey instead of black... so it needs a major buff job... will have to take it compeletly apart to get it back shinny... where can I find the conversion mount measurements?? thanks
