My mates just brought a mint 2004 fx160, low hrs for £3,500 next year it should fetch 4,000. or you should easily find a good fx140 around the 3,000 mark.

I brought a 2008 fx 160 as a stop gap,but will definatally be hanging on to it
And i mean that litterally,superb hull on the 140 160.

If you buy a jetski,and are proud owner,why hide behind a rib profile,why not declare i now own a souped up eggwisk pedalo,they must be good remember Del boy having a go on one,on that program FOOLS and Horse Power or something like that
On serious note,Yes a back rest,an abilty to carry up to large family or an dive gear ,makes me use it quite often through the summer

I had a couple of skis, a few of my mates have skis and yes they are great. Funny thing is they all beg me to bring the rib out when they go so they have some-where to put their stuff and so they don't get so bored so quickly... Mind you performance per £ they win hands down.

Also going back to a previous post, it is the actions of the few that affect the many...

Sell the RIB and buy a jetski, have both if you can

Myself and a few friend have Yamaha Superjet's as well as our ribs, can't beat them for cheap fun about £20 fuel for and afternoon and ease of launching etc is great.
