    Sad reality about our GPR's

    The hulls are no longer produced..whats out there, is out there forever.

    Probably the best hull design ever created for a personal watercraft. Ever. And it won't be made again.

    Their value is going to sky rocket the day after someone posts a conversion with that new 4 stroke.

    Thats why I'm doing my conversion..it will give the hull one more shot at being viable.

    I believe its the longest running hull design in the short history of jetski manufactoring.

    You took the words right out of my mouth!

    He's right though...basically. They have changed subtle things on the newer SJ's, but they have remained pretty much intact.

    I was at Riva last week & saw 2 new 08's with sold stickers on them, so I inquired if they had any more...I was told there were no more to be had even if I was willing to pay full retail.
