Look under the ski for hull damage, while you're under there check the intake grate & prop for damage & bring a compression tester and ask if it's ok to check it. There's more and i'm sure others will chime in.

Remove the inlet hose from the supercharger and make sure the impeller doesn't spin by hand.

Ride it for 15-20 min before buying.
If you can't water test it 90% of the time there's issues being hidden.
At that low of hours for a 07 it should be very very clean.
If its not then chances are someone swapped the guages and its actually got more hours.

Also feel around the motor inside the hull and rub a rag where you can't see.
If oil residue comes up on the rag its been wrenched on ..
Also compression test it...

Need more advice. The jet ski hasn't been used since last summer. What should i worry about before using it when i do buy it? Is $4600 w/trailer a good price?

Very good price if it's all in good shape!
Get the old fuel out of there & do an oil change & for sure remove the ceramic washers from the SC and put some riva clutch washers on it!. Of course, make sure it starts up and idles ok before you buy, if there's old gas it may idle rough. remove the elbow at the top of the super charger to the throttle body and at least swipe your finger in the SC neck to look for silver dust. If it has the Oteiker clamp on it it will be a hassle and the owner probably won't want you using needle nose pliers to pry it off.. LOL Fresh water or Ocean? Look for corrosion on the clamps & bolts.

fresh water only. Is it good or bad if it has the silver dust? Is it hard to upgrade the ceramic washers? do i need to take it to a shop?

Bad if there's dust, that indicates SC wheel touch down which is from faulty washers and/or bearings. It's not hard to swap them out. There's a "How To" section for it.
Or just send the SC to Jerry, order the washers & have him do it for you. You might as well add Mcmaster spring washers too.
Here's the link
