    Found a ski finally.

    Picking this up this weekend. 1996 Polaris 780 SLX. Comes with a brand new trailer, cover and jackets. Says it runs like a top. $1300. Sound reasonable?

    reasonable considering if you buy a basket case you'll be right around there by the time you get it running.

    Thanks guys. Been looking for quite some time now, and this one seemed like a pretty good deal.

    My '96 SLT 780 has been a great boat. Finally put a fresh top end at 300 hrs. Always runs good and gets me there and back. $1300 is top dollar for it but if it runs good/looks good; its worth it.

    The seller said the only thing it will need is new spark plugs since it's still winterized. Any suggestions for plugs (type, etc)?

    So clean the crap off them and re-use? Alright, wasn't sure if new ones were recommended or not. Thanks.
