    2004 so no warranty..but the FXHO is still same model in 2008 ? correct ?

    But yes thinking same as you..in this economy as it is now..price is kinda
    too high for the condition of them..kinda worn for 50 hours..


    JUST SERVICED BY OUR LICENSED YAMAHA SERVICE DEPT. THEY DO SHOW WEAR. THESE ARE SALTWATER SKIS AND DO SHOW SOME WEAR AND TEAR, AS PICTURED IN PHOTOS. THEY RUN PERFECT. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL. WERE USED FOR A MONTH AS DINGYS FOR A LOCAL SANTA BARBARA VESSEL.

    I wouldn't buy those. There are a lot of good deals with nicely kept ski's out there.

    Keep looking and good luck

    Just my .02

    I would maybe give them $500 each. They would be good project boats.

    With the amount of corrosion on outside of the engine and what looks to be mold, I wouldn't count on that guy having flushed it or doing any prep before storing...looks like a money pit to me. I'm sure you can fnd better deals on better maintained skis.

    Well according to them..
    they run perfect
    ..so not really a project boat.

    But if they were treated hard..maybe something is more likely to
    go wrong with them in the future.

    Yes..my thoughts exactly on any prep or storage work or flushing being
    done to these.

    Yes..there are always better deals out there.

    No way would I buy anything in that condition....

    How people take care of their stuff says volumes about what you are getting.

    corrosion, dirty, scratched...looks like rental junk.
