    Far from heavy! I just looked at them with my own eyes. Im here in Destin at the Yamaha press release. They actually have a bare hull on display with a sign that says "lift me" I can lift this hull BY MYSELF!!!

    Ultra light and the new SC engine looks incredible. I'll be riding them tomorrow so can offer more input then.

    Can you ask them what the is the Nanoexcel material, material specifications would be nice. I just find it hard to believe fiberglass is 25% lighter than fiberglass.

    Here is some more explanation on the Yamaha site of the new hull technology.
    http://www.yamaha-motor.com/waverunner/nanoxcel.aspx

    I had found on the Yamaha website yesterday that clay particles are used during the process but I can't find the info now.

    I heard 220hp? Looks nice. looks fast but about 40lbs heavier than RXT with no closed loop cooling?

    Jerry all I want to know is: is the 2008 FX SHO faster than the 2007 RXT?

    You articles makes me wonder, how much would it cost to repair this type of hull since is proprietary to Yamaha. Someone within the first month of release will damage the hull in someway.

    I am all for a light hull but at what cost.

    The Yamaha will be about the same speed as the RXT or little faster, but the handling should be far greater. Yamaha is known for the hull, why do you see people create conversion ski, GPRXP.
