Salt Water Wake Surfing Help
Im about to trade in my boat for something that fits these following guidelines and need suggestions:

GREAT wakesurf
Good wakeboard wake at slower speeds (under 20)
Can handle salt water (internal cooling system that doesn't pull in the saltwater, and stainless steel parts would be great)
Can handle choppy water
Under 80k

I've heard the tige, and mastercraft have salt water options.. However gets quite expensive..

My reason for needing it to be salt water is that I go out in a creek with braccish water ever now and then, and would also like a boat that I could take in the bay from kemah to Galveston and dock there for the day. So it will also need a DEEP v hull to be able to go through some crappy water.. Help is greatly appreciated.

Look around for some older Nautique 230 Coastal Editions. I have been on one in some nasty weather and they handle amazingly.

I have run all my boats in brackish and saltwater, Since 1989. You can have a closed loop system on any ski boat. The key to keeping a boat looking fresh is how you keep it cleaned and rinsed. Where do you ride? We are normally on the Lower San Jac, San Bernard River, Chocolate Bayou, Egret BAy to the Creek. If you need help let me know. Ive owend plenty of these boats and never had any issues with running in these waters.
