An Ultra 250 would be the best setup for choppy water
Anyways, RE OPAS block-offs would be good. Some aftermarket sponsons too.

I know it has nothing to do with handling but you should consider a splash guard if you are riding in the rough,it sure does help to see better where you are going.
for the splash guard i would recomend ppg type wich is actually a softer style splash guard not as effective as the jettrim but it does not tear as it can actually bend.

the R & D intake grate with the girdle will save you the trouble of replacing the pump shoe when your grate bolts snap & hooks up better in the rough than the Riva

The R & D grate has an optional "girdle" that adds 2 more bolts. In the stock setup only the center bolt mounts into metal...the outer two bolts screw into brass bushings in the pump shoe which is plastic......if the grate moves at all it can flex the plastic shoe & evenually crack.....With the girdle you have 3 bolts into metal & a SOLID mount to prevent flexing of the shoe. the downside is that the R & D grate is about 1mph slower in the flat water but hooks up like NOTHING ELSE in the rough.

the Throttle Conversion kit is alsom ,i love it,
the skegs from Jerry...oh...what an improvement...its like riding on a different ski.
my main focus is handling and make the ski stable. i do loooooong rides on rough water http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=27629, http://www.wavejunkies.com/challenge.htm... i think all i need is a RE OPAS block off and i'll be ok.
maybe later i will add some speed improvement element. i hope this help
