Does it throw a nice wake? Good quality boat or not?

I don't know about the 87 but a friend of mine has a 93 Euro that has a really nice wake. He is selling it if your looking for a boat. http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/8/196408.html?1098466727

jhm,

I've got a 1990 as well. I love it. I run about 900 lb ballast with 3-4 people. Even back when we only ran 500 lb ballast, my friend would consistently get 6-7 feet of air, and 8-9 on the double-up.

That '87 boat looks like it was taken care of. Since it is an older boat, and has wood construction, I'd check to make sure the floor isn't soft anywhere indicating wood rot. Also, do a compression check on the engine.

One thing to consider as well. A lot of people say that the old Ski Nautique 2001s throw the best wake out there. I haven't had a chance to ride in one yet, so I'm only going off of what I heard. Anyway, if you decide to go that route, try to find a 1989 SN2001, because I read somewhere that 1989 is the year that they started using the AME5000 resin system on the fiberglass, which is the same resin system they use today.
