I think I may have responded to a post of yours on the FaceBook Show Ski Equipment page but I was planning on putting my '91 up for sale in a few months. Same great hull and ultimate ski wake of the '94. I’ve owned this boat for 12+ years. It has been well maintained and is a smooth, strong runner in great condition. Perfect Pass with GPS speedo (also have original working Airguides), 1:1 velvet drive, 627 hours, single axle MC trailer, 2 MC covers, 2 Acme CNC props and 1 SS prop (all like new). Includes BI boom and extended pylon. Engine upgraded with GT-40p heads, Edelbrock manifold and Malory YLM ignition 5 years ago. Can store until spring/summer with deposit. $9500 - PM me here with an email if you'd like some photos.

This one has been for sale for a while. Doesn't look to be too far from you.

I talked to him on the phone and he showed me the boat on FaceTime. 1505 hours is too many i think because i am planning on keeping the boat a long time. no perfect pass, which is kind of a big deal for me

get a compression and leak down test.. you can put upwards of 2K on these motors no problem if they were cared for.. that's the question.

I'd do as Mike says and get a compression and leak down test done if the boat appears to be in good physical shape and well taken care of. If it's the original owner then that's an added plus. The 1500 hours wouldn't concern me if everything checks out okay. That's really only 60 hours per year, although I do understand that if you plan to keep it for a long time and use it often, the hours will pile up.

I've shopped this hull for quite a while now and ones in good shape are very, very hard to find. A few pop up now and then that appear in excellent shape from the pictures and description, but they are always halfway across the country and unless it's a well known forum member selling it, I wouldn't consider a long distance purchase without seeing the boat in person first. What I've typically found in my search is that ones with higher hours have been better maintained than the ones that have sat relatively unused for many years, usually outside in someone's back yard. So I guess I'd rather buy one that was used often but well maintained.

As far as PerfectPass goes, that's an easy install. I believe it's $1300 direct from PP and 2-3 hours tops to get it in. I'd much rather install my own and get the latest and greatest Stargazer version than one of the older versions that you will want to upgrade or not be happy with. Get that boat for $7000, put a brand new PP Stargazer system in for $1300 and you are golden. If it was closer to me I would take a look at it for sure.

It is kind of funny actually, I was facetiming the guy when he was asking 8900 and he was showing me the boat. It is clean, but faded, has some exterior scratches, has a cracked dash, no stereo, and heater. It seemed like the guy didn't really know much about the boat and he bought it from his neighbor on the lake. i asked how many hours it had on it (he told me 800) and he showed me the gauge. it said 1505 hours and he was like "wow, i am going to lower the price, that is way more hours than i thought." it's about a 6 hour drive for me for that boat. It is a nice boat and I'm sure you could get it for the right price. I am just planning on keeping this boat for a long time and will put a lot of hours on it. So for the peace of mind I'm looking for something in the medium hour range. (600-1000)

To be completely honest, laurel_lake_skier's boat is exactly what i am looking for and only 2 hours away. very very interested in that one and will go look at it.

Tough to find exactly what you're looking for. Wrap up that boat and start counting the days until Spring.
