I had a previous model. Put a different exhaust plus something else and gained more speed.
Never ski alone. Something goes wrong with the ski and there's no one around to help.
Will be interesting to see if you put more than 20 hours per year on it.
I'd go the rxt next time though i'll never buy one again, ski boat is way better. 2 seater, easier to jump waves and make sharp turns and bury it under the water.
I always ran 98 too.
