    The motor compartment looked like someone threw a bunch of aluminum cans in a camp fire.

    I did see a few RXP's in the shop that had some fire damage BUT i wonder if the motors 'might' be good.Guess it would depend on how hot they got.

    u can tell that thing never saw daylight (until the fire) and was never used or even prepped or started... the angle of the handlebars is how they are shipped from seadoo in the crate

    i bet you there's still a few grand in GOOD useable parts still on that ski too... someone oughtta find out where these units will be going after the claim is over... maybe snatch up some motors and good cases and cores and heads and pumps and driveshafts... make yourself a mini fortune if you can purchase a whole lot of burnt up skis and part out the good stuff...
