I have never owned or even rode a PWC before but I had this Wetjet given to me this winter in exchange for snowmobile repairs. The thing had been sitting for a few years and has a few parts missing. So far I'm into it for about $200, I just bought a used flywheel cover, Bendix and starter so I'll be able to crank it over this weekend to see if it runs or at least has spark and compression. If I can get it running I still need a Venturi, Steering Cable and some trim pieces. Is this a decent water craft for someone just getting into it? What's it work in good condition? Right now it looks like I should be able to get in on the water for around $500/$700. I'd appreciate any info or suggestions, I really don't know much about these things. I could really use a service manual if anyone has one.

Hey Steve, The first wetjets of the 1980's era were pretty much underpowered junk. When Mastercraft bought them out in the 90's, they teamed with Yamaha and brought out a decent product. I believe the Kraze was their high power boat and was competitive in that day compared to other 580, 700cc machines. I have some old PWC magazines from the early 90's at the lake. I'll check this weekend and send you any articles about it. When you get it running, enjoy it. I remember it being a 45 mph ski. I can't see it being worth very much though. It'll be a good for a beginner to learn if you want to upgrade later.

Thanks, I would be interested is reading any info you find about it. I read that they were capable of 45-50 mph too. I like the size of this thing, the ones I saw at the lake last weekend looked like you were riding a small boat. I'm looking forward to the starter showing up so I can crank it over and see if it has spark/compression.
