    580 would be a sad substitute for the original 717 in that '95 XP.

    A 951 has been done in that hull. There are a couple of threads about it at least.
    Most of them are 787 to 951s so the motor mount situation may be different. But then, you are going to be cutting the hull so what is a little more glass work.

    IMO, there are a number of 717s out there, reman, used for decent prices. If you want a 951 get a 951 hull. I admire the craftsmanship of the conversion guys, but that is not my thing. If it is yours, go for it.
