    The main difference in choosing is how fast you want to go. The SeeeeDoooos are much faster than the Hondas. 60 is tops on a 3 seat Honda Turbo F12x and 64-66 is tops on the newer 15X. The SeeeDooos are 4-5 MPH faster than the 12X and mostly dead even with the 15X in stock form. There is little support for the Hondas from the dealers but the Honda forums have a lot of great people who are willing to help. The Hondas also get fantastic gas mileage, the next closest is the Kawi 15F. The Honda 12Xs are very playful but struggle in rough water. The 15X and the SeeeeDooos handle rough water very well. The SeeDoos need supercharger maintenance every 80-100 hours and the Honda 12Xs suffer from corrosion when used in salt.

    Is the supercharger maintenance something a mechanically inclined individual could do himself after reading up on it?

    Jerry does a bunch of them and there is definitely a need to be a black-belt when doing it. The engines are an expensive toy to practice on. Talk to Jerry and he will give you the best advice you can get.
