    1st Post....Introduction and 2008 FXHO Opinions/Info

    Hi All

    This is my first post.......

    I live just outside Baton Rouge, La and looking to get a ski.

    I think I am about to close the deal on a used 2008 Yamaha FXHO. The guy is being deployed to Iraq and wants to get rid of it. The boat is really super clean with no damage at all that is visible.

    I am meeting him for a test ride early next week.

    Anythings in particular I should look for on this model?

    It has about 15 hours on it and he has not done any service. So....the first order of business will be an oil and filter change. Anything additional that I should do.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    inspect the inside of the ski for corrosion or just look to see if all is clean and nice....a well kept ski will have a film of corrosion inhibitor all over the motor and inside the hull....also ask how much saltwater riding is done with the ski....and check for signs of salt left over from bad rinsing...just a thought!
