    I would say you should at least get 48, I think my Uncle's did that. It depends on how badly scratched the hull bottom is too.

    Didn't they change the hull in 2003?

    1996-2002 was the same.

    That is probably why, as my Uncle's was a 1997. The older hulls were much lighter.

    The 1997-2000 GTI were the same hull as the 1996-2002 GTX. They changed the hull in 2001. The 1996 GTI was yellow like the 1997, but had the original flat hull.

    I just picked up a 1994 and 1996 GTX. The 1994 GTX was doing 43 on the GPS yesterday and when it "raced" a 1997 GTI, the GTI was about 3-4 mph faster.

    The 1996 GTX was only doing 47 MPH. The rpms were there, but it is missing some speed. It was the first time I have had it out. The pump will be coming apart shortly.

    yeah, now that i think about it. IMO 2003 with the little 2 stroke is way to heavy for the motor.

    well the stock speedo is a joke,bouncing off 60 MPH but GPS says about 45.
    Hull is in great shape as is the rest of it.
    Motor has less that 10 hrs on it(new not rebuilt)
    Not looking for a real fast couch,just alarmed that its not a 48 to 50 MPH one

    I had a '97 GS which considerably smaller than your hull with a 717 and it would barely do 50.
