    Need some input on a ski.

    I haven't owned a ski in a couple of years. Currently I have a newer pontoon boat, and I'm looking at downgrading to a PWC. I've owned a '96 XP and JS440 in the past. I've ridden some of the newer 4-stroke Yamaha's (2006+) and really liked them. Problem is they are more than I'm WANTING to spend. I can probably get $9k for my boat and am really wanting to get something in the $3k range. My criteria is that it's relatively fast (50mph rang), stable (2 people can ride it without fear of always falling off), and lastly reliable. I know this normally leans towards new 3-seater 4-strokes, which are great, but are really hard to find under $3k. I'm sure there are a few 2-stroke, 2 or 3 seaters out there that would get the job done. Any help on what my best bet would be would be great.

    Hate to say it but 3k isnt going to get you much of a ski with what you are looking for.....

    We bought a 2006 Yamaha VX110 for $3,000 on an older trailer with a cover. Zero mechanical issues, compression was high and equal, just had a few gel coat issues. So they can be found, I'm just curious what other models are similar in the stability and reliability department.
