    Considering 1999 GSX purchase .... help

    Well, the budget for a Super Air Nautique got blown buying a new house but I still want to get out on the water without taking on a loan. So I'm headed out this afternoon to look at a '99 GSX.

    What do we need to look at, listen for etc ??

    I'm thinking a decent enough test ride to check cold start, allow engine to get to running temp and check for over heating. Boat has 100 hours on it and looks mint in pics.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Compression test.
    Check the impeller, wear ring and general condition of the pump. Crawl underneath with a flashlight.
    Check for gray fuel lines.
    If you feel really ambitious pull the rave valves and look for piston scoring.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks brother.

    That unit doesn't have reverse which is a deal killer for me. Back to square one in the search for something decent to get us out on the water. The decent looking deals seem to move fast.
