    hell no man!! i got a GPRXP project in motion...

    and still have my RXP with all the goodies on it... just still dialing in the RXP since i just had a motor rebuilt for it last week after one of the rod bearings failed... i'm waiting on one part for it which should be here this coming week.

    i've owned a pretty large variety of skis in the past few years, from cheap junk to brand new stuff... nothing will ever take me away from the Seadoos... for me personally, they are the ski with my favorite ergonomics, favorite handling, and best quality and ease to work on

    i had two GPR hulls which are both sold now, but i have a garage LAODED with GPR and 4-tec parts

    i have my RXP
    have the Polaris
    have a 4-place trailer
    two single place trailers
    GPRXP parts with all the motor mounts, driveshaft, spare motor and electronics and whatnot ready to go

    all i need is a good GPR hull now for a good price

    Man u grabed if for a good deal i see. What that with the trailer?

    I just picked up a 95 xp with trailer. for 400. Im rebuilding the top end right now. Just needs new rings and a carb rebuild. ended up getting with a single trailer. Then i spoke to a friend of mine who had a double. He wanted a single so we traded straight up. I think i got a good deal teailer can hold two rxps also it looks like.check it out.
    what Im so happy about it will fit in my single car garage. thats if i moved the other skis out. Time to clean the garage Im going to teach my girl how to ride it. Then have whoever wants to ride it.

    Steve I have heard they are fun boats. Any review?

    What did you give for it? Was it a trade in at the dealership and you got dibs?

    IMO having a smaller ski in the bunch makes for more fun riding.

    I had a 99 SLX and loved it. I got 63.9 on radar.
    It is not a great rough water hull but is great fun. I wish I had never sold it.
    It was always fun driving by the guys on stock 951 sea doos.

    You will love that ski. There is nothing more fun to ride than a two seater Polaris. Oh, yeah...it will beat the crap out of you on choppy days. But it is worth it when you nail that wake and go soaring. You've been over to the Polaris boards, those guys are geniuses and very helpful. They have saved me hundreds for sure.

    Enjoy it!

    Yeah, it does beat you on rough days but if you ride it enough you will put on 10 lbs of solid muscle.
