    looking to purchase a 06 f12x 52 hours, ridden in salt water. what to look forloo

    looked at it once, the underneath is a little scraped up, the white looks little dull, motor looks MINT purrs like a kitten, but am worried if turbo is ok due to riding in salt water. i know the ski will clean up well but am not sure. what should i look for and what not, gonna go tomorrow again to look at it. guy wants $4900 no trailer.

    Look for no major rust.. use a mirror and flashlight to view the actuator under the exhaust and on the turbine housing. Ride the ski and hit 6K rpm min. Chk for water in the hull after the ride. The usual.
