    Thumbs up

    I had a 2001 Mazatlan Blue Carb 951 RX. I loved it. Excellent handling hull due to its size and great ergonomics. every very similar to the current RXP. I would be safe to say it was the precursor to the RXP platform.
    I suggest you do a compression check prior to purchasing it. Get a test ride if you can also. I would also check the steering cable for rough spots.
    Inspect the driveshaft carbon seal too while it in the water. Look at the head and exhaust joints for any black soot. Make sure the VTS (Trim) works and registers correctly on the multi-function center. Check the hull for any cracks or repair damage too.
    Good Luck with your purchase! ITs a very family friendly and well handling ski

    Great boat. I have a 2000 and love the stability while still having a good fun factor. It is not as good in the heavy chop as our GTX but it is more fun to play on so it balances.

    Think of it as a bigger 96 XP.

    An X-4 hull is less stable (the only one I condsider UNstable is the HX) and requires active balance.

    An RX is a bigger version of that hull with a much deeper side profile. It is also nearly 4 feet wide.

    An RX IS stable.

    The 96 XP hauls are similar to the GSX, GSXL and the 96-02 GTX-- only smaller proportionally. The RX is from a completely different direction seadoo chose to go, but it does still FEEL like a seadoo w/ the ergonomics-- the handling is similar to a small RXP-- My opinion...
