    Which spare ski should I buy.

    Looking at picking up a spare ski today. Something for allt he visitors at the lake to jump on and play with just if we have an extra rider. I will also be using it from time to time.

    1st option is a 98 Kawasaki stx 1100. Descent shape. Has a small leak by the pump..I can get it for 800 bucks.

    2nd option is a 99 Seadoo xp. Runs great, not the cleanest ski. Compression good. Gas gauge don't work. But would be the funnest. I can get it for 1700.

    Which one would you guys spring for.

    Probably the Kawasucki. It would be easier for someone with less experience to ride.

    I'm with Troy on this one. The SeaDoo is a great ride but not a easy 2 person ski either or easy to get on if you fall off in the water. The Kawasaki is a nice big 3 person ski. Whatever you buy rebuild the carburetors.

    I was also kinda leaning towards that. Would be a lot more stable.

    It's gonna be kinda sorta a gift for my gf also lol.

    Only reason I was conseriding the xp is I know it would carve a bit better and be funner. She loves when I get a little crazy on the rxpx but she can no where near handle that kinda power.
