Ok, I have been around boats and jet skis since i was born because my family owns a boat storage in southern Kentucky. My family owns many boats ranging from a 1990 Yamaha wave runner to our new purchase a 34" Silverton convertible. I am looking for a used ski that is fast I have found a 98 XP limited. I have been in love with these skis since I first saw them on the lake. I don’t know a lot about what to look for. I have an aunt who has owned a newer seadoo and hated it; it had a lot of mechanical issues. Then again we also have had a 99 gts and it had no problems what so ever.
I guess what I’m asking for is your opinion on what to look for with buying an XP or other suggestions from a more knowledgeable source.

The 98 and up XP had the 951 motor which was SeaDoo's most powerful 2 stroke but less reliable than the 800 motor before it. Just do a compression check, test ride it, and ask the owner how he maintained it.
