    Default keep your ski's

    if that boat is your only alternative to having a boat, then i'd keep what you got.

    Well... I don't know exactly about that boat... but if it's using a Merc jet drive... don't touch it. SeaDoo bough the rights to that drive, and now they dumped it.

    You can get any part you want... but if you have an engine, or pump failure... the cost to fix the boat will be more than it's worth.

    The engine (power head) is the same as the Merc outboards... but a replacement is $3500 or more. And... there is one guy with pump parts. He gets $1700 for a rebuilt pump.

    Around me, I see the little Jazz boats all over the place, and they go cheap because they need TLC, and the parts are more than anyone wants to pay to fix them.

    PM or post for help. Don't leave questions in my profile box. (i never check it)

    I'm not going to be able to do vinyl or carbs for a while. Starting my new job is taking a lot of time
