    One of the cheapest and effective ways to increase your ability to turn would be the GH skegs.

    The wedge, in my opinion get the ski up on the water instead of plowing through it. The skegs are great addition because they give ski bite in the corners. Jim's plate mod gives you speed abut doens't affect how the wedge and skegs work for handeling. The RE block offs do hamper low speed handeling(nothing a blip of the throttle doens't fix) and you do lose the couple of degrees of off power turning OPAs normally gives you, but the change in straight line tracking in rough water us worth every compromise. I can new run up wind downwind and every angle inbetween at high speed and the ski does not hunt, wobble or wiggle(it does move with the waves, but steering correction is no longer needed)

    They are avaible in the online store in the link. Yes I use them now and the ski does not slide at all it turns quickly. So if you like doing spins etc. they would not be for you.

    If you haven't yet tried the skegs and a wedge...there is a big difference in how the ski will turn/behave.

    I like them.

    The skegs work as advertized....no/little side slip...will turn like you're on rails.

    Now if your going wot in a straight line through heavy chop this is a big help as well....nowhere near the effort to maintain course and speed....however...if you want to turn at wot in heavy chop...watch out...that can be a test of your skills.

    wedge + skegs.....two thumbs up from me

    gh isn't a brand...it's a who....riva and r&d don't sell skegs.

    I not sure that anyone else offers the skegs that you epoxy on to your rideplate for the Sea Doos.
