    What are you hoping to change, or improve?

    The Genesis is a fairly long hull.

    How much rider weight are you carrying, how many people?

    Is the hull and jet pump all stock right now?

    If you are talking about the Yamaha FX HO/SHO/Cruiser or FZR/FZS type hulls, they are a different hull design, and slightly longer and a little heavier, than the Polaris Genesis (725 lbs dry weight spec).

    I don't know how different the Genesis ride would be in rough water, compared to the Yamaha, but I would expect the Yamaha to be the better rough water hull overall.

    Do make sure you have a re-boarding step, solidly mounted. Re-boarding after an unexpected fall-off in rough water can be a challenge. Be sure you are capable of getting back on without help, in deep water with waves.

    The Genesis has a 625 pound maximum load capacity, but this is the absolute maximum, and includes all safety gear and equipment - everything that is on board; riders, gear, PFD, etc. In rough water, the maximum total weight may need to be reduced to maintain hull stability.

    I am sure you know to ride with a group for safety, carry communications and safety equipment, and know how to prepare your engine for towing, in the event of a breakdown (clamp off the cooling water intake hose).

    Make sure another of the PWC you ride with can actually carry you as passenger, and you are also able to board that PWC from deep water. Plan to use a third PWC to actually tow your Genesis, should the need arise.

    Of course, your PWC should be in excellent mechanical condition before you head out.
