    Need Thoughts and Opions about a Ski please

    Hey Guys, I am getting back into the PWC world and have began to look around for a ski. I am looking for an older, 2 cycle, sit down ski for one person that will be challenging and involving to ride. I am currently looking at this ski:

    1996 Yamaha Waveraider 760 w/Trailer
    140 hours
    Current owner bought it in 1997
    The CDI (PCM for a PWC?) was replaced two years ago
    Boat is water ready

    Asking price is $1800.

    I think the price is a bit on the high side but I am willing to pay a bit over NADA for a lower hour boat. What do you guys think?

    Thanks.

    Way too high for that kind of craft. I would reccomend the GP1200 in either a 98' or 99' hull. These crafts will do 60 stock, are reliable, and with few modifications can be made to compete with newer skis. Not to mention they can be found for 1500-2000 in season.

    I would pass on the one you have and look for something with a bit more power.
