The $700 Pro
Just picked this old girl up on eBay. Was an hour away from me and scored it for $700 with the trailer.
Thought I'd post up and share.
This is a complete running ski, but unfortunately someone got creative with it. The hood and bottom are now blue, the cowling around the steering has all the finish stripped, and it has air Jordan stickers on it...
This is going to be somewhat of a restoration project.
I'd like to race it in 800 runabout region8 come June.

Here are some pics in daylight. Classic air jordan sticker on back.
Looks like the seat cover has some slop in it. Some of the hump may be missing. I can't tell.
This is gone. As you can see, it also has no turf. Idk what's up w that.
Just general ugliness here. Looks like the finish was removed.. Idk how or why. Plastic now has a yellowing effect.
Ski appears to be stock other than umi steering and beach house sponsons.
Sponsons look a little hack as they appear to be shorter than stock and don't line up w the last hole. Idk if that's normal/correct.
Overall, I think it was a good deal. I'm not sure if I held out if I'd have found a cleaner one for what ill be into this one in for the end after paint and cleaning it up. Well have to see.
The top deck is in excellent condition. I can't find a mark on it. It's a shame that someone had to be creative with it.

You guys would know better than me.
Gotta be black.
So did I get a good deal on this thing or what? It looks like hell.. I'm going to end up painting the whole thing.
It Does feel good to bring a piece of pwc history back from the dead.

I agree with bringing back a piece of history. Except now I am afraid to even let anyone near it, its so nice.
