    No difference from 08 to 09. Rock solid machine, you should have no issues at 30 hrs. At 50 you need to replace the SC washers, you can send it to Jerry for the service.

    Water test it for sure. Make sure it pulls at least 8000. Check for water, coolant, and oil in the hull after riding it. Do a compression test. Check the pump, impeller and wear ring for damage. Make sure all the electronics work, gauges, trim, compass, fuel gauge. May need to put new spark plugs in if its been sitting for a while.
