    For offshore use i préconise to change the sponsons !! i use R&D pro serie, i love them !

    you can put the RIVA or if you can find it, the "matos import" who are one of best sponsons for 15f !

    Chowski did a write-up of a few different sets I think to determine best handling, top speed and whatever....he would be the person to ask...or search for that thread...

    If I remember correctly stock was fastest, but there's an issue of getting bucked off the ski at speed if not chnaged when you start getting in the high sixties...

    I think beach house and Riva were next best...

    I got the Riva set...haven't been on the water yet though...river has 2 ft. of ice...

    I like the Riva's, very stable. Beach house worked good too. Stock sponsons were fast but unstable at higher speeds.

    Have a nice set of used beach house sponsons for sale if anyone is interested.

Hopefully going with friend over to Miss River this summer...his parents have boat out of Lacrosse....how's the riding over there...looks like it could be intimidating...

    close to 90 hours on my 15f should i adjust the valves?

    is it necessary to adjust the valves with the hours posted on my 2006 15f?

    I think the difference between the stock sponsons and the Beach house was .4 to .5 gps. The Rivas may be less of a loss and are definately higher quality.
