    Is it worth it to remove rideplate and sponsons?

    So, we're planning to sell our Kawi 15F soon. We're the original owners, and we installed an Ocean Pro rideplate, and Beach House sponsons, as well as a swimstep.

    Is it worth parting these out? Any insight and advice is appreciated.

    You would get some money for the sponsons and rideplate. I wouldn't bother removing the swimstep.

    Correction - it's a Shredmaster rideplate. The Oceanpro rideplate was on our ex-Polaris.

    And thanks for the reply!

    definitely worth pulling these parts. You can make a couple hundred selling them here or on Ebay, but you won't get much if any extra for having them on the ski when selling it. How much for the rideplate?

    You must remove the Beach House Sponsons ... can never replace them. they are very rare. Besides, the new owner won't ever know or care ... and certainly not pay you extra. :0

    Beach House Sponsons is definitely a brand name that the CC guys used and liked for what I read they made them for the old GP 1200 to,

    Put them on EBay ,you'll get some lurkers and watchers ,"best offer" usually works best when something is used as long as offer is reasonable..

    hope you have the OEM sponsons to put on when you sell the ski...GL

    We do have the original parts; just not sure it was worth the time and effort to remove them. Thanks!

    We won't be taking them off until we get the new ski - and our local dealer doesn't yet have the 2015 model we want in stock. Soon!

    My husband has decided on the new Yamaha VXR. He wants to stay naturally aspirated, and decided that after 11 years with the 15F, it was time to get something else.
