    Buying a used ski is a bit of a crap shoot and EVERY manufacturer will have certain gremlins you will want to look for. Don't fall into the trap that "lower hours" = better. Normal/Higher hours is not always bad. It all depends on how the ski has been maintained. I know of several Honda's that have well over 500 hours and are still running strong and I have seen 10 hour skis crap out.

    To simplify this, what is your budget and requirements for seating, HP, storage, etc? Maybe we can offer a direction at least.

    I totally agree with CCW! I was at first looking at the cheapest models without thinking the whole thing through. As I gave these guys more information about what I wanted to do, it turns out there was a better alternative for me. The more information you can give these guys, the better they can help.
