    Trade it in on a newer model. That will fix the bounce.

    1996 xp was a terrific hull and great handling little ski. Use search button and read about what others have done to get them handling better.

    I added R&D extended trim tabs, they helped a little, but a X-4 hull(like the 96 XP) is going to beat you to death in chop no matter what.

    If your VTS still works, try aiming it all the way down. Otherwise get used to it, it's a small sacrafice, for such a great hull!!
