    If these are my only choices I would go with the 15F lots more speed available and not a bad ride in the ocean. If it had been a GP1200/1300R I would have chose differently.

    that on the speedo or on gps?

    lot of people dog the 800 but i think its a good for thouse who are more rec riding. my top speed gps was 57 .

    i haven't really messed with the engine as i want to keep the ski quiet and reliable.

    there are actually a lot of mods out there how much you can squeeze out the engine though i have no idea.

    being as i have never been on f15 or any thing even close to it i have no idea. i know im very happy with the gp800r and have no plans on ditching it but im not a speed freak either.

    Ocean riding I would go with the 800... much lighter and you will be able to jump the Shat out of it! (I would assume your young? since you where talking about your parents) when I was young I would have gotten boared with the 12/15f real fast (I rode a ultra 150) plus if you get hungry later you can RXGPR it
