    My new (to me) 1998 Pro 785

    Well folks, I went to look at the Pro today and left with a HUGE smile on my face. From the instant I gave it that first blip of the throttle, I KNEW this ski was for me. Raw power...undeniable performance...endless adrenaline...

    I will get some more pictures tomorrow when it is daylight and I can have a chance to clean it up a little bit. I bought it with 13 hours on the clock and it looks like it only has 13 hours. Obviously there are a few dings but it is a 10 year old ski afterall. It has a few more goodies: V-Force reeds, R&D intake grate, gas pressure exhaust valves, Fly Racing flame arrestors, UMI steering, Hot Seat water box.

    It does have a 5 vein stator that I'm thinking about replacing for a 6 vein SS as well as maybe do a AAT for it. It only ran up to about 61 MPH and 7650 RPMs but it was choppy and I couldn't get it to really open up all the way, but those pipes sure hit hard!! Talk about getting your arms ripped off. I think this ski really found me because it was for sale since June 26th of last year.

    LOL I really think this ski didn't sell because it wanted to be with me. Though I did bust my lip launching it today. I had the wench free wheeling (not clicking so you can just turn it) and I was about to unlatch it when the ski slid down the trailer causing the wench to spin...thus nailing me in my lip. Blood everywhere for about 5 minutes...and pain but I didn't care, I was about to ride my new Pro.

    Pictures for sure tomorrow after I wash and wax her up....

    there is nothing out there like a pro 785 they are some awesome boats . the only thing i didn't like about the 98 was they came stock with a nujet prop but they still run great . infact i think the nujet gets more top speed but doesn;t pull out of the hole as good as the skat trak but i bet if you send it to JetskiMn he can fix that problem . Congrats
