    Stevo, WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!

    The 2003 had a few updates but all should be completed by now, if you get one and want to check it call Jay at Atlantic Powersports and I'm sure he'll run the VIN for you.
    The 2004 is 30-40 pounds lighter at the front of the hull (depending on who you talk to).
    They also changed the hull at the rear section, strake shape etc.
    They also kicked the ride plate an additional 4MM on the 2004.
    The 2004 is roughly 2 MPH faster than the 2003 but the 2003 does better in the rough stuff.
    I think the only updates on the 04 are the hood strut and the hoses going around fuel injection lines.
    The 2003's have bolts at the stator which are tooooo long and need to be replaced if you have spark or poor running issues.
    The 2004 has a thin fairing (smoked cover over the gauges) the 2003 is nice and thick.
    The seat on the 2004 has better fuller foam towards the front of the seat.
    The bumper guard going around the craft is a little smoother on the 2004's.
    That's what I remember, I'm sure others can add to the differences.

    You forgot to tell him what colors they came in.
