Got a deal I couldn't pass up on

Found this deal thru a local friend of mine. Picked it up for only $375 with galv. trailer included plus a new galv. spare tire!! All she needs is a good clean-up, a new marine battery and the carbs cleaned. Could use a new impeller but I'm probably not going to buy that for ths one. I mainly bought this because of such a good investment turn around I can make off it. These little boogers sell like hot cakes in the spring and more so in the summer. I don't see any reason why I can't quadriple my investment in on it. Most people ask around $1700 obo w/o trialer for this model. I plan on selling it for $1500 w/ the trailer once I clean it up and make sure she runs good in the water.

My other Sea-Doo XP is the limited 800 model I bought new back int he day. Its not as fast as the newer ones but has one of the best performing hulls IMHO. 110hp and this small hull makes for fun times hehe. I want to add a little bitty shot of N20 to it for chits and giggles and hopefully be able to suprise some of the bigger boys this summer . That or hopefully sell both and upgrade to the bad boy; the 215hp intercooled supercharged and multi-port direct injection Sea-Doo RXP this summer.

Please excuse them both being EXTREMELY dirty right now

A buddy of mine that does painting came over and we discussed maybe throwing some paint over on it and getting even more money for it since all we'd need to buy is a little bit of supplies. Pays to have friends that do this kind of work hehe. This is a chop of kinda what I had in mind.

umm, that paint job would be way too hot. Nice find though. I bought a pair of '95 and '96 Tigersharks on a trailer for $700 two years ago. I gotta sell the 95, but i love the 96. Short hull, like 260 pounds, with 62 HP. Tops out at about 45 mph, but is loud as hell and crazy fun to drive.

We need more boost!
