ID:	276401A guy my son works with has a 95 Wave Blaster he wants to get rid of. It's been sitting up almost 10 years, so when we drove out to his place this morning to look at it, I wasn't expecting much. It has been stored in a lean too, so it was covered in dirt and looked pretty bad. When he opened up the engine compartment, it was super clean.

    We brought it home and my son washed it off--looks almost new. No scratches or fading, no tears in the seat.

    Not sure if he's changed the gas out or not, but it smelled OK, battery was dead so we put one out of my XLT in it just to see how well it turned over.

    Hit the primer a few times, and it fired right up. Took it out to the lake and it ran pretty good considering how long it's been sitting up. Think we'll drain the fuel, put in some new, run some sea foam though it and see how it does. If it runs, good, if not, we'll pull the carbs and rebuild them.

    I think the guy wants $250 for the ski. Does this sound like a good deal?

    aaahh yeah, thats a smoking good deal. It actually looks like a 96 with the twin carb motor. its the more desirable one and the ski is worth $1500 to $2000

    you really had to consider if it was a good deal for a RUNNING ski for $250.......literally any brand ski is worth $250 in running condition.....but this is a STEAL!!

    That's a 96... and whether it runs or not $250 is a steal

    Thanks for the comments. I'll have to see what my son wants to do--and if he buys it, I'll have to learn to get up on the thing in the water--needed help yesterday

    Yeah, its may take you 20 times, but once you learn the trick its easy. Have fun. BTW, the pipe on that thing is worth more than $250!

    I couldn't find a place for a flush hose on this thing. Any ideas where to look would be helpful?

    There isn't one. Yamaha sold an add-on one as a kit. I have one in the original package if you are interested. I don't remember what I bought it for, but never installed it.

    Your stealing that. I've paid 200 for blown up stuff before. Good find. Rebuild the carbs for piece of mind, compression check, new plugs, new gas, new battery, new fuel filter and let it ride
