Where do I start?
I'm a first time ski owner so please bear with me.
I just bought a used 2002 Genesis with 49 hours on it. Looks in good shape. Engine compartment very clean. Looks like it's been looked after. First time in the water it started fine but seemed to lack take off power. Max speed was 35mph. Engine sounded sweet not misfiring but no chance of getting to 55-60mph like I was told. What are the first things to check before I have to take it to a shop?

WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums.
Is it an injected or carbureted unit?
What's the compression?

Welcome to the Hulk!
Download the 2002 Service Manual.
You will need to check engine compression.
If you can recall, what were the maximum RPM shown while riding at max throttle? If the RPM is at the expected level, then the engine may not be the problem.
If RPM are below normal, then power is missing, and the engine needs to be checked (starting with compression).
Were there any warnings on the dash display?
Do you know the service history of this Genesis?
Fuel and oil tanks were not low, and the gasoline was not old?
