Sold my i/o bayliner yesterday looking for my first inboard...
I am going to miss that boat, gave my family alot of fun times. I am now looking for my first inboard, looking to spend 30,000 or less. I have been doing so many searches and reading so many things on here about different hulls and makes etc. etc. I have been looking at 02-03 san`s,06 and up moomba lsv`s, wakesetter vtx`s and so on. Its kind of overwelming.... anybody ever had this feeling?? lol

i sold my 04 bayliner in june 08 with 186hrs on it, went down the next day and bought a 08 wakesetter vtx. the wait killed me, it took 3 months to build over here in AUS

so glad i went to an inboard, you wont regret it

This boat is for sale here in Nebraska (Omaha). It's a friend of mine and he is asking $30,000.00. 2003 MasterCraft X2 with MCX 350hp, and a ton more options. Let me know and I would give you his number.

Jeff, What lake do you ride on? I'm from the Des Moines area but have family and do some work in the Omaha area every now and then.

I usually ride out at Fremont lakes. My crew consists of my son (9) and daughter (8), and then friend Darin. I live in Gretna, hit me up any time if you want to go. I will send you a PM with my phone numbers also.

Fremont looks pretty sweet via Google! How many of those lakes are skiable? I'd assume it's private?

Sorry for the thread jack Roger.

I go to Fremont State Lakes (The main lake open to public) which is usually calm even with a fairly strong wind (Trees all around lake). The pictures of my friends boat is on the private lake called Big Sandy.

Once you crack the throttle of an inboard, you will not miss the Bayliner.

You will probably get a ton of brand-loyal crap from your question, so take it all with a grain of salt.

Here is my brand-loyal B.S., I would look into a Sanger.....great built boats, without having to pay a bunch for the sticker on the side. The V215 is a great all around boat...great for wakeboarding and not bad for surfing if properly weighted.

+1 on the Sanger. I am exceptionally impressed at the quality build and fitout. Also the V series turn on a dime, handle the rough, board well, surf well and give a good slalom wake. Keeps everyone happy. They can't be beaten for the money either. Just my opinion though:D.

I know that boat. I'm in the picture to the left :)... Great boat!

Hey Jeff

I`m not ready to buy just yet i need to give it at least a month to let this boat show on my credit report as being a zero balance, But thanks for the link to the boat. I have heard nothing but good things about sangers but have never seen one. I am ocated in East Texas almost on Louisiana state line. I am looking into different loan options now.... I think the smart thing to do would be wait until fall/winter, seems like i could get a better deal then. Anybody have any input on my thinking??? Thanks for the responses, Roger.

p.s. i may end up bugging you guys for advice, i apoligize in advance lol....

There is not a doubt that dealerships and people will be more willing to deal when the demand is low.

Here is my V237.

lol not bad for a idaho hill billy. What part of idaho? When i lived in Spokane Wash. i used to go to idaho to ride 4 wheelers all the time.

idaho_hillbilly 07-13-2010 9:52 PM

Roger...That is on Upper Twin Lake...north of Post Falls. I live behind Silverwood...at the base of the mountains you probably 4-wheeled in. Matter of fact I'm taking the Jeep up to the Coeur d' Alene's tomorrow to throw some mud!

No problem, he informed me that he would like to sell his boat to put money down on buying his house, so I figured that I would put it up here for you to look at.
