    Interesting fact on new X models

    This is an email that i just got from my BRP contact concerning the X models

    Lighter is better

    If they'd beef up that hull a little bit, I'd take one.

    Yay! Good news to hear just before I head to the boat show to finalize the deal on mine.

    They didn't want the hulls peeling anymore so they built them completely out of gelcoat....

    Only thing that will be peeling on the X ski is your face from the take-off.
