    2008 Houston Boat Show

    Went to the boat show today and I have to say, the RXP-X and T and the FXSHO were stunning crafts

    I'll have to be honest. If I were to buy a new craft in the next couple of months....[which may happen ], it would be the FX-SHO Cruiser. It has a cup holder, comfy ergonomic seats, cruise control, 1800 cc's, looks easy to work on, built in tie-down cleats that retract, boarding ladder, and front starboard and port side plactic protectors in case the ski gets bumped on a dock. the RXP-X was nice, I was all over it with a tape measure...heehee....I did notice the intake grate sticks down further in the water to help keep the ski hooked. the regional Sea-doo rep was there mentioning there is alot of room for the ski performance wise. I seen the external IC too.

    Also, on the FX-SHO, the rideplate looked like a machined version of Jim's FF plate !! It had the center area machined square like Jim does his plates.

    I hate to rain on Yamaha's parade but there will only be one 350 V8 in America and it is a Chevy. No two bit producer of Taurus engines will ever change that.

    Here is a rear pic of the FX-SHO rideplate. Looks like ALOT of room for material to machined down to increase ANGLE !! Look how thick that OEM plate is !
