    97 XP what to look for and how to prevent...

    I'm going to look at a 97 XP today in Michigan.

    Its only been run in fresh and shows 151psi across both cylinders.

    Is there a link to a list of items I need to check before purchasing the unit?

    Also, is there a way to protect the electrical problem points so they won't go bad in the future?

    They are asking $2500 with no trailer. (I donít need one) What would be a good price...?

    The hull is a little faded and it looks like the top part has been replaced.

    Also, how do I check the hours on the machine?

    $1200 is a steal.

    What would it be worth at normal market value. Remember this is a fresh water boat not salt.

    Thanks!

    I just got a 2002 for $3500 in excelent shape. The 97 is underpowerd and the early xpl's had water intrrusion issues. I think in 99 they moved the vent hoses further back and cured the intrusion problems..
