    Just couldn't resist

    Couldn't stand it anymore, I just had to get another to work on........maybe should make the wife work on it since she is the one that thought another one would be so much fun. Oh well, I guess I need something to do since it is still cold and raining here. Just bought a 95 SLT750 with Karavan double trailer for $1250. It has 128#, 128#, and 125# compression; looks like it has not had the triple fuel update; needs fuel lines changed;traction mat glued; but looks clean. Was a one owner(female too) ski that has been in storage for a couple of years, and was fogged before being put away.

    I didn't think it was a bad find with the double trailer. Now I can slide my SL750 onto it and sell the Yacht Club single that I have.

    Very nice find with the double trailer. If your wife likes to do 360's, slides, etc you can leave it as-is. If she likes a more stable, cruiser type ride you'll want to put a set of sponsons on it. My '94SLT750 really slides and breaks the rear loose easily. The '96 SLT780 the wife rides has factory sponsons and really bites the water. You can literally stand on one side of the ski and it won't roll over.

    Sponsons don't affect stability much when the hull is not moving through the water.

    I considered adding sponsons but i don't think that it will get rode hard enough to go through the hassle. Maybe we'll see how it goes this year and it could be a winter project if the need arises.
