    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
    / skis.
    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!

    Yamaha xlt1200 its a 2 stroke and there reliable. I got my 2005 w/ 50 hours on it march of 08 for 4700. It's a 3 seater so you can pull tubes and have the extra room for grandkids. I go tubing and water skiing on it.

    I think a couple of FX160's or FX 140's would fit the bill quite nicely and they're 4 stroke.

    whatever it is- if you want low maintenence, buy a 4 stroke. Yamahas are the arguably the most reliable. I dont know if youll get two Fxs for 7k however
