New, never built, comes with turf, couch mounts, 155mm pump shoe, hood latch/pins and tank pod. Has a few nicks from moving it around my house and the wrap has a few bubbles that can probably be fixed with a heat gun. Uses standard Superjet driveline (including superjet midshaft) $3500 plus shipping or pick it up in San Diego, CA

Disclaimer:
WDK had a bad batch of resin and some of the hulls that were produced around this time had issues with the finish layer peeling up. I was told that this was not a structural problem, but what do I know. So this one may or may not be effected. I paid $5k plus shipping on this thing and was promised another one, but that didn't happen, so here it is at a loss...

A few questions on your hull-What year is it? Is it full carbon? Do you know the weight? Is it a surf or flatwater bottom? So you kow if it will take a 145 pump? Thanks

Sorry for the delay, the hull is a 2017, Full carbon, I'll get you a weight today, but it's pretty light (55-65 lbs). It's a flatwater ski, but I know guys are riding them elsewhere too. It has a 155 pump shoe installed, so I'd say you need to stick with a 155 unless you want to do the work and replace it.

I was told by a company (wont name who so nobody starts critizing or derailing the page) but they told me before when I was wanting to stick a 144 setback in their hull with a 155 pump shoe they just said to line up the pump straight and add some extra silicone.

Thanks for the add’l info. I’m a flatwater guy, so that’s what I was hoping to hear. Can you send a picture or two of the tray and footholds when you have a chance?

Any chance you could shoot over a pic or two of the tray and footholds, and maybe a shot from the back to show back of tray. I’m interested.

Thanks for the pic. Was the turf down by WDK? You mentioned there maybe some epoxy issues, does the finish show any defects or production blemishes?

Yes, WDK did the turf - I haven't touched it. There are no imperfections that I can see, it looks like nice build quality and solid, but for all I know it will disintegrate once wet! :)

Haha. I hope not! Thanks for the additional info. Could you shoot me your number and I’ll call you on Monday with a couple more questions and to figure out if I can get down to look at it? Thanks
