    Given the financial incentive, an aftermarket company could purchase/copy the GPR molds from Yamaha and begin producing conversion skis on a larger scale, like Hydrospace copied the STX-15F hull...

    It'd be like the Callaway Corvettes!

    would they put a warranty on it even though it's not coming exactly from a factory?
