    Ladder/step installed on a GTR....did it cost you top speed?

    I bought my 2nd GTR today (new 13). I like the step on my 130 (bought a 13 GTI130se as well to replace 12 130se), but the dealer told me NOT to install the step like on the 130 cause it will cost me 3-4mph on top. Can anyone verify, or disprove this? I like the step, but not 3-4 mph worth. Thanks in advance.

    I don't think he's correct.
    When your wot only a small portion of your ski is in the water.

    The ladder is a great option.

    It seemed weird when he said it, but I thought I did hear someone else mention it when I considered it on my 2012 GTR......Id like to hear from someone with a GTR (or a GTI hull that didn't have a ladder, and now does).

    Pic of new boats!

    I think he is smoking crack! Maybe an aftermarket ladder that hangs in the water might do that?? But no way seadoo would ever be that dumb.

    I installed a factory ladder on my gtr,and I lost 7mph.










    Not! It didn't change anything except for making it easier for my lard ass to get on it.

    This whole thread is amazing? We are talking about the fold down boarding ladder right?

    Whoa, I'm gonna take mine off and I will be up to 79 mph.

    I installed one and lost maybe 10 mph...until I figured out it was up side down. The directions sucked.







    (Just kidding!)
