    How Is This?

    I know there is not much info. here, but I was just wondering how these are on the water? I have a Yamaha GP1200R and a Polaris Virage. If I were to get this, I would sell the Polaris. Not very fond of the colors, but if it runs then who knows what will happen? I will find out what it has on it, and post back here...

    By today's terms its slow (about 45 mph) it won't turn well(a set of used sponsons will fix that real quick) and compared to what you own now it woun't be very stable. but for $500 if you can get it running with just a starter its a pretty good deal.

    Here is the scoop.

    My aunt is the one that wants to buy it, and I just realized she didn't want to keep it! haha.

    She wants to fix it up and sell it. So, if I get new sponsons, starter, and give it a new paint job, how much will I be able to sell it with a trailer...

    Maybe a $1000 $1200 with trailer. Not really a high end or high desire ski.

    That ski looks just like one a buddy of mine sold accept the colors on his were yellow and white only. His was an 88 or 89 SP with a 580 I think. He bought it for 300 and turned it over with a new battery and no trailer for about 900 if I remember correctly.

    Save your money. It is veryhard to make money fixing and selling Ski's. No market and lots of hidden problems

    Yeah man, I'm with ya on this one. An older ski like that could end up being a huge money pit just to loose in the end.
