    buying a used sho

    Hi all I'm considering buying a 2008 SHO with 50 hrs on it for around $9000 no trailer and first oil change hasn't been done yet rode it and all seems fine & Fast. Also looking at 2007 HO 32hrs for $7800 w/trailer. One of these skis will be my first. I've looked around some threads and seen some of the problems that can happen if the ski is not properly taken care of. My question is being new to PWC's what should I look for when inspecting the ski's to help avoid getting stuck with a dead craft after 2 years with 2 years left on payments. I'll bring my brother when I go to inspect the ski's he went to MMI but they didn't spend much time on PWC's. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    But guys he is in the Virgin Islands. Prices are sure to be higher there than we are used to paying in the states.

    Also, shouldn't the first oil change be at 10 hours?

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

    Along with some other maintenance things at the 10 hour interval.
