I'm trying to figure out where to learn more about older model PWC's. I'm only looking to spend a couple grand so I've been shopping the pre-2000 PWC's and I'm not sure how to learn more about them.

One in particular I'm looking at is a 95 Seadoo HX...

Well for one, you can find some specs at NADA.com, but other wise just ask the questions you need answered around here.

I hadn't thought about that before. how accurate do you feel the nada pricing is? One HX I was looking at is $2300 asking, but NADA puts it closer to $1300...

Do you know if the HX was available in both a 720cc and a 715? this one is being sold as a 715 but I found an article on a 720 and it made me think one of them was wrong.

The engine that was in the 1995 HX was a 715cc 85 Horsepower engine. If the boats in good condition (minor hull damage, lower hours, engine works everytime starting up) I wouldn't pay more than $2000. I mean for a 13 year old boat, where there is DEFINETLY going to be SOME damage to it, you need to be for $2000 at most, so you can save maybe a grand to do some work to put it to better condition.

in the $2k range, are there other models you would recommend I look into over the HX? I'm not stuck on Seadoo either. Eventually we want a 3 seater and a 2 seater, but right now I'm just looking for the first one, whichever that may be.

Well, $2000 is a good price, but you could probably spend a little more and get a 97 or 98 in better condition.

EDIT: Ok I found a website wit some triple waverunner trailors, go take a look Magneta Trailers PWC Trailers JET SKI WAVERUNNER SEADOO , SINGLE AND DOUBLE PWC TRAILERS

thanks for the link!

and yes definitely feel free to give me some pointers on which ski's would be good to look at for the money.

I'm considering a 3 position trailer because my mother in law wants a pwc as well... so we're thinking if my wife and I got one, and she got one, it would be nice to have one more spot on the trailer for adding another down the road. we eventually want a 3 seater for towing and a 2 seater... for fun. :D

OK, now I got a another question in case you guys have time...

Looking at a 97 Polaris Hurricane. I've heard good things about it but having a hard time finding solid info about it on Google. Other than a issue with the stator, can't find anything like top speed, weight, etc.
