I have the chance to buy several different skis and just wondering which would be the best. I am looking for above 54 mph top speed.

1) 96 Sea Doo XP with 787 (mods galore, the guy says it goes 60) no trailer - $1k

2) 96 GSX (no trailer needs carbs rebuilt probably) $500

3) 96 SPX (no trailer needs carbs rebuilt) $400

4) 96 XP with 787 (little to no mods, needs top end gasket set) includes trailer $900

Any help you guys have as to top speed and things like that would be wonderful!

We have a 97 GTX - 787. Tops out around 47 mph.
and a 98 XP limited 951 - Tops out around 55 mph

by the onboard/unreliable gauges. Really want the GPS upgrade but pricey.

Got a couple years ago, both all apart w/ trailer for $1200... rebuilt carbs, new starter solenoid, plugs, batteries, gaskets, clean, fix leaking oil tank. etc etc. Replace various missing parts, fix some body dings/gouges. Been pretty reliable ever since. Kids & I had them out this last weekend.
