    I used to own 2009 Yamaha FX SHO last year. I put over 118hrs in one summer. I had no issues at all! Runs good and fast! I went and bought new Seadoo now. Yamaha makes very good 1812cc motor.

    The SHO is an excellent ski and very responsive to mods. The 1.8 is very reliable.

    did a lot of research when I got mine, the only part that is likely to fail on these ski is the supercharger clutch. (but then it all depends on your style of riding )

    you can google it for the exact liters but it has in the front and under the seat.

    I have a long rope, anchor, fire extinguisher and I barely got it to half full (the one under the seat)
    in the front I store 2x lifejackets, sunglasses and shoes.
    it has a water proof section for mobile/keys
    and then another waterproof section in the middle, I keep 2x half a liter bottles and documents.

    I've had my 2008 SHO for 3 years now. I had to change the spark plugs once when it was misbehaving. Other than that, just oil changes once a year. Runs like a top. It has 140 hrs. on it.
