Someone at my work is selling a 1996 Polaris 750 for 3500.00 with Trailer/ I know I can get him down to 3000.00. It has 74 hours on it. Is this a good deal? Is 74 hours alot for this model/year? Thanks for all your help.

I have 2 '96 Wave Raiders both with approx. 180 hours on them. We dont ride them very often so I would assume they are in pretty good shape.

Checkout www.kbb.com for a price on used watercraft.

Dont bother... for one polaris is eh... not the worst but not the best. Me and my aunt went in on a '97-98 Yamaha Waverunner, forget how many hours, around 120 maybe? Paid$3000 for it and trailor. Had a few problems but nothin I couldnt fix (I didnt have any experiance on motorcycle / waverunner engines either).

Like anything else, shop around. Check for oil leaks, find out how much oil it burns per outing, and check the cables (accelorator trigger, reverse/drive cable (connects to the "water exhaust" which directs the water in order to propel you forward or back.)

Which ever you decide on their a blast, enjoy!

That just depends on how creative you are with it... take a 4 ft breaker head on at full throttle, get tossed 5 feet in the air, land it. then the fun might last for about 30 min...

like bikes however chicks dig em, and they wear bikinis on waverunners :rolleyes:

EXACTLY what I was thinking! I'd get one if I lived right on a lake or beach, but not otherwise.

Yep, you're right... ~30 minutes with waves

All we ever did fun with ours was sit at Dana Harbor and hit the waves coming in. I'll admit, it is a blast to do occasionally, but other than wave jumping.... YAWN

AND, if you wanna jump, buy a Kawasaki not a Sea Doo! I busted a couple of motor mounts (due to poor design for jumping) and they replaced them under warranty once, but told me that if it happened again, it would be on me. The waverunner never had a problem with the abuse.
