New (old) ski? Waverunner 650
There's a ski for sale and I need some advice. The guy says it's a 92 650 Waverunner (can someone confirm that? I don't know my older skis that well).
He's asking $500 CAD, with or without trailer, and he might be negotiable. The block is cracked or punctured, and that's the reason for sale.
A few things:
- Is it a gas guzzler?
- Stable? (I have a 96 Raider and that's my benchmark)
- Fun? Fast? Modifiable?
- Fix it (keep it stock) and sell it
- Fix it (keep it stock) and let the wife use it
- Project ski

Update: it's $250 without the trailer, which seems like a decent price. Remember, skis are generally more expensive up here

fun. yes if crusing inland waters and some mid level play is what your looking for..
fast .. 35-40
stable when running yes .sitting its a toss up (or over lol) is a harsh ride in chop.(as its a flat bottom) not a two person ski
fuel hog .no.. run's all day in moderation
worth 250.. depends on what you need to get her running
find a motor ebay, running, used ,around 300.00,youll have a good safe ski thats not too fast that you can laze the summer on..

If I do keep it, it would be for the wife, so you hit on a few key words: safe, stable, dependable & fun.
Where we ride there can be decent chop, so I'm not sure if she'd like being tossed around - can anything be done to minimize this? I know not much as you said, it's a flat bottom.

your only option is to have glass work done to add a v...not feasable on this IMO..

That's a little more money than I want to sink into this. (Well, I don't know the actual price, but I'm sure it's not cheap.)
As long as she doesn't get bucked off (that's Bucked!) I should be fine. Maybe I won't tell her and blame her driving

No..its not a buck... its more of a bounce, bounce, bounce, splash lol
