What to buy?
Old foggies (60's)- new to the sport! Looking for (2) used waverunners
for small lake. Just want to have fun - nothing adventurous. Boat/motor
knowledge - but don't want to spend my whole summer taking care
of toys either. At least one needs to be able to pull grandkids on tubes
Anyone have any opinions on what a good beginning would be? We have
NO knowledge - and don't know what a good price would be either.
Hoping to get two for around $7000. Please advise!

I think you will be very happy with two GTI 4-tecs (2006+). If you look around, you might be able to swing two for $7000 as deals are everywhere now, but probably plan on spending a bit more. However it is well worth it.
The non super charged 4-tec has been know to last up to 1000hrs with basic maintainence. Great reliable ski for the cottage.

are you plannig on letting the grandkids drive either ski???
if so you might want to get one larger ski, for yourselves, aka a gtx or gti, maybe even pickup a nice 2003 GTX SC, or similar.
and then get a smaller more nimble "fun" ski for the kids, like a spx or a gsx.
those can be had for around 2k.
best all around combo, for fun and usability.

Shoot for 99' GTi for the tubing and get a 99+ GSX for fun. If you shop smart.. you'll find both with a trailer can come as cheap as $5000.
