    Cool ski. It wont go 75 though. 60mph would be a little closer. Check out this thread with tips on buying used ski's. Look it up on the NADA guide for the price.

    Default kool ski

    think that ski will bounce around alot on the trailer, considering the center of gravity is pretty much on back crossmember...think price could be $3200..OBO

    Default 73 Mph

    I have a 98 GSX limited. I have had it for 4 or 5 years now. When I bought it it would top out at 68 mph. This Seadoo is used in a local Lake in Arkansas. As the years when on it started slowing down. This past year I had the Carbs cleaned, Carb filters replaced. This past summer 2008 the Seadoo hit 73 mph. So I would certainly agree that it is possible to hit 75mph in it.

    That trailer looks a little small for that PWC. Here is a link to the trailers websites http://www.northtrailtrailers.com/BoatPWCPontoon.html

    My is on a Karavan Trailer that measures 12 feet in length. The Seadoo does not hang off the back. http://www.karavantrailers.com/pwc.cfm?categoryid=1

    It'll only reach those kind of speeds if you're relying on the factory dreamometer. Realistically, those machines do about 62 MPH with a GPS. Currently the fastest stock PWC's available (not including the Hydrospace) will not break 70 MPH. They all top out at about 67-68 MPH. This includes the RXP, RXPX, RXT, RXTX, Ultra 250, Ultra 260 etc.
    The Hydrospace "Series R Race Edition" is rumored to go over 90 MPH stock.
