    Seems to be common on these. It has a new starter because the rod that came out of the block busted the old one.

    If you're not ready for the worst, like a new motor, don't bother. It's very rare to find a dirt cheap ski that only needs a minor repair to get it running.

    Also, even if you can figure out why it won't start, it's a gamble. There's no way of knowing what else is wrong until you get it running.

    Over the summer, I walked away from a cheap Kawi 12F on a trailer. The owner wanted to keep it but couldn't get a mechanic to work on it, so I offered to help get it running. It became a money pit and still doesn't run right. I'm glad I didn't buy it.

    that "couldn't get a mechanic to work on it" is a sure ticket to oak island. Wise move passing on it.
