    Best old school small ski for the money?

    I'm looking for a little ski I can shuck around and go all day on a 1/2 tank of gas so I don't have to feed the beast every time I want to go out. I had a Yamaha Wave Raider 2 and it was simply a blast to ride. Is there anything better I can find like that for the $$? Maybe an old Doo XP?

    that would work! I can find that around here probably 1,500. I'm just looking for the best 2 stroke small ski. I want to be able to throw the thing around. The wave raider felt like I was going 70mph because of how unstable it was lol.

    Maybe like this

    98 GSXL with some choice mods, but they do use some fuel. How much do you weigh?-- as that would give me a better idea of what you would be most suited for.

    96 and up XP, or the add you posted. PPL are putting the kawi 1100 in the xps, spxs for extra reliable power they do mid 60s. I still have a old 96 GTX, love that thing wish it was a tad faster though.
