    If you sold your MSX....

    I'm torn guys. The wife wants to upgrade really bad. I want to too but I don't wanna get rid of my baby. 03 MSX 140 HO. 2nd owner with 91 hrs. It still looks brand new inside and out. Still mean, clean, lean and torq'y! What would you try and get out of it? (sale price). Yacht club trailer, anchor, tow ropes, and 2 covers. Thanks for you're input!

    I watched low to mid $3's over the off season, paid mid $3k's for mine back in Feb/Mar. Mine was an 04; people that know, know that the 03 had a few more problems than the 04.

    You're in prime season, a fresh water ski, with covers. I would think mid $3k easy....

    Mid 3k range here too. Some are asking over 4. I would start out about 4,250 and go from there.

    We are actually going to move up to a 22' boat. I know, I know.... i just can't swing both. Got to payoff the ski loan before we can start on the boat. Plus, we can't tow EVERYTHING to the lake. It would look like we were moving in!

    I have both a 22ft boat and 2 jetskii's. Don't get rid of the ski. You will regret it because you will want one again soon. See if you can swing them both. If you sell it now, by the time you're ready again the used ones cost 5k or 6k for the fast ones. You will then be in to another jetskii for twice the amount you spent on the MSX. Good luck.

    Yeah, I kinda agree with ya. I probably will regret it, but I would be too busy with the big honkin' @ss boat. Talking with the wife tonight,.. of course she wants it to go, but if it doesn't then it doesn't and we still have our little jumpy ski. If it goes... then it goes.
