GP Model's Hull Question
All, I have got my 98 gp1200 apart, engine and tanks out and the fiberglass patch removed. The hole in the hull is pretty big, me and my dad are going to try and patch it. In the mean time, I'm looking for a hull just in case we mess mine up too bad. I found a GP 760 hull. My question is are all the GP hulls from 97-99 the same? Any info would be greatly appreciated ya'll!!!
Thanks in advance!

Not all of the GP hulls are the same. The later 98's and 99's are the same, but different from the 97's. The difference is in the trim tab area. The late 98's and 99's hulls extend to where the trim tabs on a 97 hull stop.

I have a '99 GP800 hull with UMI steering and custom front and rear seats plus some extras I'd sell for 750.00 plus shipping or you come pick it up.
PM me if you're interested and I'll give you a complete inventory of what's included and what could be included for additional $$$$$

Imt ,that the 98/ GP hulls were not as likely to flex crack the bottom near the motor mounts as the 97's.. 1200's are more likely to crack than the 760's because of additional weight and horsepower...
IMT, most were caused by major wave jumping .. find a 98/ as the hull is a more advanced design...
