    What pwc should I buy?

    Looking into buying a used performance ski. I will be mostly riding in Barnegat Bay (Usually moderately choppy) with very occasional ocean riding. With or without a supercharger, I don't care. But it has to be on the lighter side, accelerate quickly, seat 3, and take chop well. Lmk what you think I should buy. Thanks.

    Either the SHO or the HO any of the FX models should suit your needs.

    I will mostly be riding in the southern side of the bay. But I will also be making trips up to the lighthouse.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I've been looking into the vxr/vxs because they have almoast everything I want. Does anyone know how they perform in choppy water?

    This is why all of the responses have been for the FX so far. The FX hull "cuts through" the chop while the VX hull doesn't cut through as well. Top speed in glass-like conditions? By all means get a VXR/S. But in your description of where you'll be riding, you described conditions where the FX will be the more appropriate ski.
