    Oh Crap, now I have 4 skis...

    Just sold the wife's Volvo and the guy was a little short of cash so I acquired an SL750 that had lost compression on one cylinder...I just picked it up and don't know if it's junk, a parts ski or one worth fixing.

    Pics of course coming soon to a computer screen really near to you.

    The economy down here stinks to high heaven. I was hardly getting any calls on the car and the guy comes to me with cash about $500 less than my target price. Oh, it did come with beach trailer so that's a bonus.

    I have been seeing a surprising amount of skis for sale in FL...

    Most of them cheap. Too bad FL is kinda far from NY... grrr...

    It's a parts bike...pistons are frozen...they are soaking in wd40 right now. Hopefully I can get the cylinders off.

    The gauges look good, the hood looks perfect. Hopefully the electrical box and jet pump are good. Maybe the trim motor. The trim switch looks good.

    I'll see if I can tear into it Wednesday.

    The seat vinyl is ok except that it has the mildew stains. I just hit it with a Clorox Clean Up towel and it was better. It's the original cover...says Polaris on the back end. Isn't the SLT a 3 seater? This one's a two seater.

    The hood looks really good.
