Thread: Ski opinion?

  1. #1

    Ski opinion?

    I have a friend who can sell me a 2001 gp800r for 2200. It's coming from a jetski dealership so he said they did a check out on it and it's all good. I'm looking to use it to fish and be a solid runner. I don't want to buy something I'm gonna be wrenching on every time I run it. If I get it, I will keep it stock with only doing the mods to keep it safe and reliable. Like power valve clips and oil block off plate.

    Well all I'm using this ski for is fishing and the occasional run around. I don't need no speed demon or hot rod. I just need a good jetski.

    Like would it be worth the 2k to turn it into a fish ski. I was looking at the aquatrax turbo ski's and I still considering it also.
