Missed out on the best deal!
Well guys i blew it big time. I was down in jersey for the giants/dolphins game and i found a deal on a 2003 gp1300r with a 2009 sho motor. i ended up getting wasted at the game and not calling him till the monday and he traded it for an rxp. here is the kicker, he was selling it to me for 4850$ only 20 hours on the motor and is not set up 100% but runs 81.2mph as is. the only problem is that there was water that enters the hull through the pump shoe bolt holes. Just had to share that i am sooo pissed i lost this deal. snooze you lose i guess. I hope the guy who got this deal considers himself a lucky SOB. good luck with the ski.

In a 03 hull chances are the water entering the pump shoe holes is because the tunnels blown out. Its a common problem on an 03. That ski was for sale for a long long time.

It's often those deals that are "to good to be true" end up being "to good to be true". Don't base that find on a deal you're looking to duplicate...if so, you'll probably never get another one. If it was straight up and legit, it was a KILLEER deal. Good luck finding what you want regardless.

Oh i know all about the "to good to be true" saying. And i will keep looking for what i want or i will build it. but i guess for now i will be working on the rxp putting in all the parts i got off the guys on here. thanks everyone.

There is a GPRSHO FS in CT. If your interested ill put you in contact.

ya i saw that, he wants 10 000. i know thats a reasonable price, just at 5000 i have the funds for it right now and was willing to gamble. but for 10 000 i might as well build my gprxp for less cause a neighbour of mine has an 08 rxpx motor and electronics i can grab for 3200.

It sounds like the one I was looking at. I was told it was a basket case totally rigged up. I was still interested in buying it but the guy would not provide pictures or hull I D number.
