    96 Waveraider 1100 deal?

    http://desmoines.craigslist.org/boa/2400758952.html

    Looking at this tomorrow night. The guy said he would take $1000 for it. If it checks out and runs good would this be a decent pick up? Anything I need to check for when it is out of the water? Any other suggestions?

    I have searched the boards quite a bit for info on the waveraiders and they seem to be a pretty brutal ski to ride at times due to the hull. This is not a concern with me however. I used to have a 2000 Sea Doo GTX that was fun to ride but I am looking for something a little more raw so to speak. Wont be pulling anything with it and will occassionally have two people on it.

    Thanks for any help and info.

    See if you can take a compression test on the motor and look at the pump for damage. It sound like a OK deal. The ski looks good in the photo too. There was a guy that got a ski home after buying it and the drive shaft was striped. He dint know until he put it in the water and it wouldn't move. But on land it look great. That was the first time I have herd of something like that. See if you can test ride it for that reason. I hope this help you out.
