Yup.. another "great purchase".. another lesson learned the hard on way ..
here is a little run down then ill let the pictures finish the talking... i got trigger happy and made the purchase on this oh so fine like new minty great condition 10/10 gp1300r waverunner with a super nice 10/10 trailer ..
... the dude was at 4500 asking price .. got him down to 3500 without seeing the ski.. he called me back a week later saying come pick it up for 2500... did some more talking over the phone and explaining of what was going on with ski and got him down to 1500 before i even looked at it...
went to check it out and tried to do a compression test and but would turn over.. has a new started but electrical box was apart and motor wouldnt turn over.. i shouldve pulled the head to do a visual on the cylinders but didnt.. so shame on me.
i also shouldve looked at the bottom a little better but we were in wet grass and the blood started rushign to my head
so i took the skeetster home for 1000 and was convinced it was a starter issue and this is what i found...
please leave comments questions conserns humor and constructive criticism ..
all donations and donated parts are prefered and welcomed and i.o.u'd
i also have a ton of white pink blue and green cash moneys three railroads and a get out of jail free card up for trade

It's still a killer deal for the ski and trailer for $1000.

based on the pics you'll need everything new except maybe the cases. How do the intake reeds and carb rack look? Perhaps this would make another great 1390 BB ported ski.....
Or perhaps a great ski to morph into a GPRXP..... Either way you have some money and work cut out for you...... P.S. by the way what year is that ski? I'd like to buy the seat if you're going to part it out...

I would buy that ski and trailer all day long for that price.

That was a great deal! Now you just have to find out what caused it

WOW! did you expect a running ski for that price? the guy came down in price pretty quick in price I`d say... But the others are correct, for a grand you have a hull and parts to build a fresh ski...
Did this POS come from NJ? or Florida?...lol.................................... .............................j/k..
