    Brand new to PWC's - How did we do on our first purchase?

    Ended up picking up this 2004 FX Cruiser + trailer/cover for 5000 even. Seem to be sound mechanically all around a even came with a 10 hour warranty. Cosmetically its almost flawless aside from one small scratch on the hull. Only 61 hours on the clock. KBB had the unit listed at about 4350 plus whatever the trailer's worth, but I assume that this is low hours for a 2004 (yes, the ad says 2005, but its wrong.) I'd love to hear your thoughts on how we did.

    I would do an hour water test before you buy it.

    Ride it before you buy it.
    Too many unknown possibilities to just buy it without riding it.

    +1....thats very low hours for the age of the ski, sitting for long periods of time are harder on machinery than being used in most cases....

    Well its too late for that, but well fight them on the warranty of something isn't right. FWIW it sat in a crate until 2006 according to the title. Still less than 10 hours per year though.

    Assuming everything is right, how is the price for a unit like this one?
