    still looking for that 2nd ski

    i have my double trailer. got a nice one for 500. still no 2nd ski though. from all the input i got for my thread "which used pwc to buy, i have narrowed my search to a 787c seadoo, pro 785, or sltx. here's a link to an sltx with engine problems for 500. what do you guys think. what is a fair price assuming it does not need drivetrain rebuild?

    thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    I can at least say that you will be happy with a SLTX. They are good boats.

    That SLTX would have the domestic 1050 engine, which seems well regarded around here. Rated 120HP.

    I would think that even parting it out would net you more than $500, so it seems like a fairly safe buy. That said, would you be doing your own engine rebuild?

    engine rebuild

    i said before i was a spark plug and oil filter wrench mechanic. that has expanded to include polaris final drive assembly rebuild. (maybe-still working on it)

    i would love to rebuild an engine and know basically what is involved but am not really confident that i could take that on with out hands on help. i could handle getting the engine out and back in. i was going to ask opinions on getting a rebuild done on this. i see ads on the internet but am hesitant to trust them but i have been very impressed by the knowledge of the members of this forum and wanted to get your opinions/offers on a rebuild.
