Good compression?

hello,

New here and looking at purchasing a wakeboard boat... I have the choices narrowed down to MC, Tige and Malibu. Going to mainly wakesurf w my kids (65%), wakeboard (25%) and everything else (10%).

Found a good looking 2006 X15 that is actually local so I can go look at it. Compression on the motor is 190/186/188/192 190/185/187/188. Is that reasonable?

Thanks!
John

Yes, those are very good compression numbers.

Make sure this was tested when the engine was at normal operating temperature and the fuse for the fuel pump was removed. Fuel being delivered during a compression test skews it high.
