    it depends on its condition, wear and tear, compression in the head etc....

    check the following as a starting point.

    check the hull for damage
    check for rust or neglect
    check the compression in the motor, it should be something like 120/120/115
    check the trailer for rust and abuse
    check its not encumbered although a ski that old should be free and clear.
    make sure there are no obvious signs of neglect on the ski like torn seat and damage from an accident

    they are the things that come to my mind.

    make sure you test ride it as well to be sure it runs ok.

    Have a look at the attachments in this post.

    There is a document outlining some basic checks and things to watch for when purchasing a used PWC. Not everything will apply to your situation, but it should get you started.

    The 2000 had a lot of powervalve problems, you might want to get a look at those and ask if they added waveater clips. Be sure to check the compression.
