Will it fit?
I know it will, but I have some other questions.
I have (had) a very nice 1997 GP 1200 that got totaled this weekend.
- Any insights?

It will fit. The 2000 GP800 is still the old hull. 2001 GP800 is the newer GPR hull.
Motor mount holes should be there, gauges are the same. You might have to swap the intermediate shaft.
Here's the gotcha. I'm pretty sure the pump is the smaller 144mm instead of the 155mm. But you can swap that over too.

I dont know much about converting the 97 to a 2k, but it requires a lot of changes to make it happen.
I've got a 99 hull, clean title, descent shape - if you end up buying one.....PM me if you may want it.

I believe the 800 actually uses the same mounting points from what ive read. The pump is the smaller 144 which WILL work with the right prop but you'll lose bottom end for sure.
(im basing this off the blaster 1200 guys that stick with the stock 144 pump and still get good top speed numbers)
the gp800 hull is the same as the 1200 just different motor/pump, again this is from everything ive round recently(looking at a similar swap into the gpr hull)
also WFO did this swap on a gp 800 hull and he said everything worked , he had to make one adjustment with exhaust(cut something i believe) but other then that he said everything plugged up and worked)
