I've been looking for one of these for a long time now, and finally ran across one on crags list for $80, And it was only 2 miles away, looks like I will have to invest about $200 for a new handle and pull start assembly. We usually wakeboard/surf from 6 to 12 then the lake gets to busy and we hang out in the cove for 4 to 5 hours. This seems like a perfect toy for the kids (7-13-14). Pretty much a weed eater with a prop and throttle so working on it should be fairly easy. Has anybody got any pros/cons on this device.
