Water Ski Price

Hi Guys,

I need some help. What is a 2003 HO Vengeance worth? It a 67 with double animal boots. The ski was used 1 time. It has been sitting in my basement in a bag and I would like to sell it.

Thanks

Take the bindings off and sell the ski and boots separately.

$50 for ski

$250 for boots

Or, buy some cheap bindings and put them on the ski and keep it as a house ski. But noone is going to want that ski, it's like a cinder block.

Those old approach bindings are lethal to the ankles and achilles! They are great until one day you are coming around a buoy and find yourself going over the front. I would toss 'em in the trash.

I never liked them, but dont blame them for not being patient at the buoy

I got ride of mine for the same reason. Some people are okay to take the risk of not coming out in a fall. Sell it to them on SIA. I think you could get $175 for them and $75--$100 for the ski at this time of year. HO Vengeance was a good intermediate ski at the time. My wife had its predecessor in name, the ASX, for a short period of time.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

This!!!
We call them ''ankles breakers'' for a reason.A ski partner broke his with Approach.There's no 100% safe bindings (love my Reflex!) but the Approach are dangerous.
