    look at what you are asking...

    is it a "good deal"

    well that depends...

    looking strictly from the book value standpoint maybe..as the bv of that model is 3100-3500

    EVERYTHING depends on condition..and with no pics nobody will go out on a limb to say if it's good or not.

    your market indicates salt water. If anything I'd have the ski checked over by a pro before dropping 3k into a hole in the water

    if the gelcoat is shot, has more corrosion shoing<sic> then the titantic and the previous owner got his service done by the guy that live down by the canal behind his house it might not be the deal of the century

    As long as the ski checks out, it sounds like a very fair price, but like nmpeter says, if it's been in salt water, be careful and have it checked out. I have a 15f with almost 500 hours. Still runs mostly good. So, they can be great ski's as long as they're not abused.

    I not gonna say that a bad deal, but i think you can do much better. I bought 2 2008 2 years ago with 27hrs and 32 hours for $4,200 and $4,000 and they were in perfect condition, but i did buy them both in the winter time.

    well...I ended up picking a 08 stx 15f with 65 hrs...trailer, dolly and stand, speakers, hell the guy even left his brand new gloves and water shoes in it....all for $3300....... he rebuilt the head at 40 hrs when he bought it( he gave the old one)...took it out and got 61mph on the dreamo....the only thing is that the steering feels a lil loose....it has a shred master plate on it...could that be the cause?

    with a bv of almost 5k..that was a great deal!

    check the nozzle bushing and cable travel/freeplay before you start looking elsewhere.
