    Used waverunner opinion

    Still debating to buy a new one but came across these two used skis recently.

    1. 2009 vx cruiser, 60 hrs, trailer, 2 jackets for 7000

    2. 2006 fx ho cruiser , 122 hrs, new oil plugs battery, trailer, jacket and cover for 4500

    opinion on these? Both have about the same blue book value.

    I would rather the fx ho cruiser as it will have a good bit more power and that is important to me. It will also handle chop better which is most of the riding we do being on the gulf of Mexico. A bonus would be the $2500 savings. Both have low hours so in my opinion that would not be a deciding factor.

    If it was me, I'd get the HO. The VX will probably last longer, but the HO is a great machine.

    The fx said he is selling because his wife and daughter never took safety course and rode only once last year.

    I more so want something functional and fun in case I get deployed next year. Then when I get back I can trade up for a new model.

    Going to check the fx ho tomorrow. What's the process of registering/licensing it? It's used and he has the title for jet ski and trailer in hand.

    Just make sure you test ride it in the water at full throttle under normal operating temps. Was it operated in salt water? Unfortunately used skis without warranties are a crap shoot, but Mowerpan is correct; the FX series handle chop better.

    The registration process is pretty simple in Florida if you have a title; just take it to the tag office and be prepared to pay sales tax; at that point they will set you up in the system with new registration and you might need a new hull sticker plus a new tag for trailer if required. That's Florida; not sure about your state.

    Does the 2006 happen to be in Poquoson?

    Did he back out on you too or did he screw me to sell it to you?
