    Hull difference?? Pro 785/1200.

    What are the bottom hull differences between the pro 785 and 1200. Are there any??

    I read on that boats.com article they are the same "pro v modified".

    I was under the impression they were different. I've seen both stock and the 785 seemed to have different sponsons, rideplate, and a deeper v angle. I never saw them next to each other though so I may have been imagining it?

    I always thought the 785 was a better rough water ski? I know the 97 was significantly lighter.

    I guess I may have been wrong?

    Anybody know for certain. I thought I did!

    I may be eating my words over on pwct......D'OH!

    thanks in advance,
    Jonah

    The bottoms are identical, BUT, the sides that lead from the bottom to the point where the hull meets the upper deck are angled different. Sponsons and rideplate are the same.

    Engine is located further back (2 inches) and doesn't have the weight of the triple pipes.

    Top deck is different.

    I guess it depends on what Pro 1200 you are talking about.

    Just wanted to make sure.

    Thanks man. I should be getting all of my different oils from Al soon. I might have some Red Line oil for you. Or Maybe we can get you to come over to the dark side and run some AMSOIL Dominator Oil.

    I don't know if the hulls are actually different, but they sure ride differently. The Pro 1200s I've ridden did not handle nearly as well as my 785s. However, it cold be set up too.
