V-bottom 2000 GS Bombardier Sea Doo. It is 106 inches long, 46 inches wide, holds 482 lbs and has a 15 gallon gas tank. This is an awesome jet ski. It is a 2 seater marroon and white. This watercraft is not one of the fancy ones with the digital display. It only has a start and stop button and a gas gauge. For me that is all I needed. It will run around 50 mph Due to it's size it is very quick to take off. Since it is a v-bottom it is very easy to cut the waves and do tricks with. Very easy to throw riders off. However, it also can make it hard for an inexperienced rider to be able to balance it to get on. Someone may need to steady the back of it while they get on from the side. If they end up throwing themselves off in the middle of the lake it may really take some effort to get back on. Due to this I had a drop down ladder added to the rear. The ladder is spring loaded so once your feet are off of the ladder it pops back up.
Each year for winter we take the battery off to try to save it for next year. I don't know why we do this really. Because we normally end up buying another one anyway. I guess it is just those batteries. I have only had this jet ski in the shop on one occasion in 8 years. I can't really tell you what was wrong other than it was minor and some little something was rusted. It cost me less than $100.00 to repair. My husband cleans and changes the spark plugs frequently. We have not taken it to the beach due to the salt water. And I am afraid with the waves and even my experience I might not be able to get back on it myself if I was thrown off.
I have had this jet ski for 8 years now and I still love it. There are some spots of mildew on the seat and handles. Other than that it still looks great. There are of course new better jet skis out there but I wouldnt get rid of this one for anything.
I was unable to ride last summer due to being pregnant and I haven't pulled it out of the shop this year due to my 7 month old. I have no doubt it will start right up with a new battery next summer.
