    Potiential Buy???

    Hey everyone,
    There is a 1996 Seadoo HX in my area for sale with a new engine in it selling for $1200 because the guy is getting transferred to Japan.

    Can anyone tell me about these skis and whether this is worth checking out or not?

    thats a fair deal......I have seen them go locally for a couple hundred dollars (not with a new engine).......these skis are fun.....if you have balance,,,,impossible to ride 2 people on......when you come to idle on these skis they like to tip over...they are narrow.....I love them and I'm bbuilding one right now to race Sport Class next year.....but as far as price...they are over 10 years old so they are not worth what a lot of people want for them...but in your case....I would ride it and if you like it buy it

    Got templates from one a while back and it's a beautiful design. They are rare around here.

    Not being able to handle a 2nd rider concerns me because my wife will want to ride with me sometimes. Both places we would ride will require us to idle either from shore past the no wake buoys or down a long canal before I can get on top of the water.

    then the hx is not the ski for you. i would look for a gsxl or an rx for 2 up riding. maybe even a 3 seater (gtx) from the 96+ era.

    Shoot for the RX over the GSXL, it's a great 2 seater platform, very stable.
