Lake sports sells jet skis. Customers pay 1/3 of the sales price of the jet ski when they initially purchase the ski, and then pay another 1/3 each year for the next two years. Because Lake has little information about collectibility of these receivables, they use the installment method for revenue recognition. In 2008 Lake began operations and sold jet skis with a total price of $900,000 that cost Lake $450,000. Lake collected $300,000 in 2009, and $300,000 in 2010 associated with those sales. In 2009 Lake sold jet skis with a total price of $1,500,000 that cost Lake $900,000. Lake collected $500,000 in 2009, $400,000 in 2010 and $400,000 in 2011 associated with those sales. In 2011 Lake also repossessed $200,000 of jet skis that were sold in 2009. Those jet skis had a fair value of $75,000 at the time they were repossessed.
