    is this a good deal?

    okay, so I have a question I am new to Jetskis and looking to get started on the cheaper side for now. I found someone selling 2 skis on a double trailer all registered. one is a seadoo 98 GTS and one is a Seadoo 97 GTX. On the gts the oil pump does not work so it needs to mix the oil. On the GTX they said the starter button is needed but there is a temporary button wired up. Aside from that on one of them, the HIN does not match the registration 100% only the last three digits. I am told One of them has a new engine with 15hrs. the other has a rebuilt engine 75 hrs. They only want $1500. Should I run away or is this a great deal?

    Go run them on the lake and do a compression check. If they wont do that walk away. Do you know what engines are in them?

    Does it not alarm you that the hin are incorrect?

    Nope. Call in the hin on the boat, and run it to see if it's clean. I have a fleet of skis. Most paperwork matches hin's, but ALL the regi #'s match. If the ski hin does not come back stolen, then whatever.

    Although, mis matched #'s are an amazing bargaining chip......

    Oh man in PA if the title doesn't match, that is a TRAIN WRECK to get fixed legally. Also, we can not get a registration with out a title. Sounds like a good deal if you are not worried about the numbers not matching.

    Re: is this a good deal?

    Ok so now I have a bunch of questions on the HIN. Maybe this should be its one thread...

    Isnít the number on both the motor and the hull? If that was the case and I were to her a new motor then the numbers would not match correct?

    Second part. When you go to register the ski. The dmv does not physically look at the ski so how would they know they donít match?
