    Is this worth buying?

    I found a yamaha wr500f on Craigslist for $50. The ski was tied down during sandy and flooded. What do you think would need to be replaced on it. I have some experience with jetskis but they were newer and sea-doos I am not familiar with these older Yamaha ones. The ski is in good condition and the only thing wrong is the currently non running motor.

    This ski will do about 30mph tops and might cost you $500 (or more) to get it running...depending on what it needs. In the end you'll have a $500 ski that you spent $550 or more on. So its only worth it if you want to part it out (not highly desirable parts but some people need some of these parts), you want to keep it and use it, or you just want something to tinker with/educate yourself.
