    How Many SUV 1200's Can One Person Have

    This is becoming a bad habit... lol. Am about to purchase my 4th SUV 1200 (with bad engine).. My fleet is getting larger and I'll start posting them for sale in the Spring I guess. I now have the 2000 conversion to a HO 4 stroke; a 2000 (good running); a 2002 (rebuilt engine) and soon a 2001 (will replace with a great running motor)... if my Wife knew, she'd kill me...lol

    I'm a cruiser...I don't jump waves at 55 yrs old.. I dive off them though!
    Plus storage, storage and more storage.. Lot's of sandbars and islands around here; I used to load one of my earlier ones up with camping gear and go camping with it; and even had a trolling motor stored in the side compartment to get me out of trouble when needed. It worked well when I lost my steering in the Keys once..and they ride like a cadillac. Load it up with beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, water skis and have fun all day long.

    plus I keep running into problem children needing fixing...I like to fix stuff.. ps: 50 MPH isn't slow to me..

    I wish I had an SUV as a guide ski. Id want a FXHO motor or maybe a vx. But I would turn it into a workhorse and a half. 4 SUVs tho, thats quite an addiction.

    These watercraft definitely have a cult following, a guy around my area has a few he does family outings on. Easier to deal with than a boat, and you can really pack them with stuff like the original poster stated. While not my thing they have their place for sure, if you can find any..

    P.S.- Food for thought: This craft was a monster back in the day compared to the other offerings, and still is. But look at the current flagship models from the 3 manufactures, the length isn't that far off from the SUV..
