    a) wouldn't pay any more than $4500 with trailer, if this one gets away there are plenty more out there
    b) 53 mph
    c) great on gas
    d) very reliable ski, most rental places use them, some out there with 3,000 hours on them

    Thanks for the input guys, what I'm looking for in a ski is something reliable and good on gas to tool around Harsens island ,MI. My last experience with a Polaris can be read ("My summer with an MSX 140") on the Polaris (MSX matrix) forum.

    I need something that will not leave me stranded....speed not such an issue but fuel consumption is. Sounds like Yamaha is the best bet.

    Yes that is a great choice; although if it were me I will always spend a little more if I have to and get a ski with a Y.E.S. extended warranty that can be transferred into your name. But for reliability and fuel economy that is a great choice!
