    1994 waveraider questions

    I'm looking to buy my first jet ski. I'm pretty set on a 94 701 wave raider. I have read endless amounts of good things about them but wanted to know if there is anything to really watch out for on these skis? I plan to buy the next one that comes up on craigslist within my budget. I'm looking to spend about $1,500, there's a nice one with trailer that's been for sale for while but the guy wants $3k for it, double what it's worth.

    So any opinions on these skis or anything to look out for?

    I read a bad review on E-bay about craigslist.It was a buyer beware from someone he burned.I dont know who he is,or how to get back to the warning,I just remember stumbling across it late one night,so this is just a forum member courtesy heads up - I wouldnt buy anything from him His inflated price is another tip off.

    I found a good deal on another one, only issue is it had a patch of fiberglass repaired on the bottom of the hull. Is this something to steer clear of or is it just cosmetic?

    re: radier

    here is a great deal going on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...2415002&rd=1,1

    as far as the pacth goes i would take a look at it in person you should be able to tell if it was a good job or if it is a hack job

    I bought it today, over all it was pretty good, runs great. 1500 with trailer.

    only thing is it's missing the cap to the fire extinguisher compartment, anyone know where I can get one?
