Yes. <BR>I do agree that it is a great boat. <BR> <BR>I think they are all great boats. Some are just better than others. You have to decide on what is the best for you. <BR> <BR>Here is my add. <BR> <BR>'04 Calabria Pro-V - Great family wakeboard boat; lots of room for all day outings; versatile wake configuration with the infloor ballast and left, right ballast switches; the best wakeboard wake for me; awesome surf wake for anyone...both regular and goofy; very usable concealed cooler; lots of storage; easily garaged with folding Boss tower; swiveling seat adds driver comfort; nice styling and excellent fit and finish. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.Wake-Me.com" target="_blank">www.Wake-Me.com</a> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>

positivity.... <BR> <BR>98 ProStar 190-Decent wake when properly weighted (for my riding ability-doesn't hold a candle to the X-Star that I rode behind on Friday, better interior room than my old 88 ProStar, LT-1 engine (mid life crisis Corvette wrapped in a boat), Tower provides better pull than old Skylon, excellent fit and finish, floor cooler holds lots of cans (or bottles), and most importantly PAID FOR........... <BR> <BR>Positivity is grand in this sport

I'm with the "paid for" aspect. Mine puts out a respectable wake when weighted and I didn't have to spend $50K to be able to ride.

Phaeton, that's funny!!! One day I'll see a Calabria here in Florida. <BR> <BR>Positivity indeed... <BR> <BR>I should have started with my first boat: <BR> <BR><b><i>1999 FourWinns Horizon 170 - Johnson 115 Outboard</i></b> <BR> <BR>Surprisingly big inside for a 16.5' boat; ski locker holds a nearly full 500 lb. fat sack; built in ski pylon tall enough to accommodate a board rack across the transom; full fiberglass liner for easy cleanup; short and narrow enough to take up only one space in a 2 car garage; Pretty darn good wakeboard wake, clean to 70', adjustable via engine trim; Paid for...I miss that! <BR> <BR><b><i>Despite the conventional wisdom, there are A LOT of really good boats out there...</i></b>
