hi,
i'm new to jet skis & had originally thought about getting decent used one but now leaning more towards new. I've looked at the Yahama VX delux with 110hp, the Kawaski stx F15 with 160hp & the honda F12 turbo. all are aroun 8-9k but i'm wondering which is best. the yamaha seems like a great ski & the cheapest of the 3 put it'll only go about 50mph & i was hoping for at least 60-65. as i said, i'm new to this...is that difference in speed really a big deal? Which do you folks think it the best ski?
Also, i'm a kinda smallish woman at only 5'1 so i'm worried about getting a ski that too big for me to handle or feel comfortable on.

Any comments, suggestions or opinions would be appreciated.
thanks
Meryl

Hi Ernest,
thanks for the advice. If you don't mind my asking, what's WOT (sorry if that's a dumb question.
as for the wate, it'll only be fresh water as i'll have it out on a lake. the lake does get kinda rough but where i'd be riding is just the cove by my house so that's pretty calm. I'm concerned about the extra maintenance & the fact that honda will not be making anymore PWC's so that will now play into my decision. That's for the heads up on that :).
my real concern is that if i'm gonna spend 8k i'd hate to be unhappy with it after a year or two & want more speed. I guess like you said, i'll have to ride each one but since the honda deal doesn't have any i can ride, guess i'll lean more towards the yamaha.
so is it about the kawaski you don't like? I haven't really read anything about them having issues.
thanks again
Meryl
