    Rock solid ski! the next size up is the 800 but I don't like that engine! the xl 760 from a few years earlier is nice and has the full gage package and reverse! I have a 99 xl 700 and it is my wifes ski , my fishing ski and my most dependable ski! and I bought it as an x rental,, I also have 2 xl 1200's and while they are fun they are gas hogs ! but the 700 is a sipper , check all the storage and the hidden ice chest also

    very reliable if you take careof it it will last for years. Not fast but it will get you there. Charging system is weak on all the old 2 cylinder Yamahas. and the exaust cooling can get plugged with shell and sand if its run in shallow water. But its fine for most

    does the xl 700 have reverse? is it stable enough where my 2yr old could stand on it with out tipping over?

    XL700 doesn't have reverse, but is very stable.

    correct no reverse unless you add it ( easy) . I can stand on the side of mine without tipping it over and I'm 260
