    About to buy.....

    I'm about to buy a new ski to go with the ole 1993 SPX. I've been looking at either a 2007 Honda F12 or a 2007 Yamaha VX Sport. The Yamaha is 1000.00 less than the Honda. I believe both go about the same speed 54-55, they are both reliable and both are good on gas. From those that know, what are the good and bad about each, TIA Steve

    both good skis. Dont forget to look into the Kawaski 15F also. Does speed in the low 60's and 08 new models are going between 7 and 8 grand.

    I would get the turbo instead of the N/A F12, better resale and more fun to ride in my opinion unless you are going to jump surf [which it is much better than the turbo].

    The 15F is a great 'ski also except the low fuel filler, oil filter location and the reverse system [which is awful].

    I bought the turbo model. My dealer didn't have the F12X in Blue so he's giving me the GPScape in blue for the same price, $8,299.00. Guess I went in and changed my mind at the right time. I didn't get much from the yamaha guys except to buy an FX HO or a GP 1300. If you buy a VX you'll be the slowest boat on the lake. I didn't even ask about the Kawasaki's since I remember sieze after sieze with them back when I first started with seadoo in the early 1990's. Now if this cold snap in Louisiana will go away I can get on the lake next weekend.
