    1996 seadoo GTX

    I just bought a 1996 seadoo GTX. It is my first watercraft and i was wondering if it is a good ski and what you think of them.

    The Gtx was a great ski in its day. Heres some things to check. 1 Check the casting holes in the head pipe for rot. 2 Clean the Rave valves. The engine is a 787 110 hp. When take care of it will run a long time. I should know. I have 2 of those motors in my 98 Sea Doo Boat.

    One of SD's finest hulls. Good engine, though underpowerd for the boat.

    I bought one for my wife this year. It runs great and is a good machine, it is for a novice rider though, it doesn't cut very good but it does run about 56 mph. That is with a nu jet impeller and a new wear ring which is great for her and guests that need one to ride. I hope you enjoy it !
