    what to buy?

    I apologize if I'm not doing this right but here goes. Regretably it's time to say goodbye to my favorite mechanical device of all time, my 96 Waveventure 1100. It still runs great, it's just been banned in National Parks and I can't use it at lake Powell in Utah. So armed with 4 to 5 thou to spend I am wondering what ski is going to give me the best combo of reliability and performance. I do all my own work and I like a machine with some performance. The old Yamie still does 60, I'd like one that comes close. What should I be looking for? It must be 4 stroke, any year, or 2006 and newer CARB compliant if a 2 stroke DI. Three person. Thanks jack

    Find yourself a STX15F. You'll not go wrong with one. Good performance (60-62ish stock) and reliable. Have a search through this forum and you'll see for yourself that is really bugger all that goes wrong with them.

    agree , 4 stroke 15f all the way

    Dont buy a DI ski , cause age / technology isnt on their side ........

    you WILL be very happy with a 15F

    I found a nice stx-12f. Not enough gusto? What's the first year for 15f? Have they changed much through the years? Thanks jack

    I personally would keep looking for a 15. The search tool is great
    Only minor changes since they released the 15 in 2004.
