    From what I've seen Tritons have lower bunks, which means you don't have to back as far into the water to launch the ski. This can be important if you have a 2 wheel drive/rear wheel drive vehicle. ...

    That ski in good condition with average hours has a low retail value of $3600 in my area.

    I believe most PWC's get ridden about 50 hours a year. So although 800 is high, it is also quite average...

    NADA average retail on that ski w/o trailer is $7900 in my area, low retail $6900.

    IMO, that's not a good deal. It's a fair price, but there's plenty of room for haggling.
