    The boat was a money pit, I had fun with the jet ski in the river and ocean.

    I only rent jet skis when I go to the lake. They are way too expensive and have too many mechanical problems. They sure are fun though!

    Nobody owns jet skis anymore. We have two sea doo watercrafts. They are a blast

    Then look into sea doo. They are the least problematic. I love them. Easy to transport and dock and they are easy to store. I get more use out of them than the boat which is the real money pit.

    fuck that

    sea doo is the worst

    especially with the super charger


    our yamaha has NEVER been to the shop

    the sea doo
    something with the super charger has it very prone to ingesting rocks

    renting them a couple times a year is tough to beat. We had a couple of XL700 WaveRunners that were a blast but after a few years our interest waned and they became expendable.

    Now we just rent or borrow my brothers.

    I agree with Jaw. I'd probably go Yamaha if I ever bought again.
