    Lucky craigslist find.

    So last weekend while out of town for Father's Day, my friend calls me and says he just found a pristine 96 xp on Craigslist. He says I better call the guy right now. I took his advice and called without even looking at the pictures. The guy on the phone says he just got it from his good friend who bought it new in 1997 and just never really rode it. He drained the gas out every year and refilled it with fresh. He was afraid the fluorescent lights in his garage were gonna fade his cover so he put another cover over the original cover. Super anal stuff like that. so I tell him I'll be there first thing in the morning. I still didn't expect anything super special, until I got there and saw it. The only real defects to speak of were mold on the seat and what appeared to be cat claw marks on the bar pad???(strange). He had all the original paperwork from when the ski was bought including the owners manual, supplemental manual, seadoo vhs tape and original cover all in near mint condition. So needless to say I bought it. Pics tell the tale. More pics to come.

    Yep. They gotta go. The only mod was the tracker sponsons. The seat on it in the pics is off one of my other skis. Ill get some more pics tonight or tomorrow. It has been very well preserved. With only 48 hours it should be.
