Thats a pretty nasty looking crack.

Honestly if that was my boat i would get out the grinder and welder and do the best i could. If it didnt work out, no big loss.

A friend of mine bought an older Gekko a few years ago. At the time i was selling my MC205 and he ended up passing on it because the gekko was $6k cheaper. In the end he absolutely hates his boat...

i can personally recommend the MC 205 as I had one for a few years. My 99 had a nice big locker in the back that a 750lb sac fit in pretty nicely and if you add a sac under the bow seats you have...

Very doubtful that they're "rich" people. In my neck of the woods its more likely young oilfield guys who make a good living but are financed to the nuts on everything they have. I know quite a few...

I have to agree that prices are getting crazy. What i really dont understand is how many get sold to people who rarely if ever use them. At one lake i go to pretty frequently there are a few $100k+...

That price for the ballast sounds ok if it's all installed and everything works and vents properly. You'll probably still want a little more ballast for surfing, especially on the goofy side. The...

The 22ve not having ballast is a plus in my opinion. The standard ballast system on those years isnt very good anyways and you'd need to upgrade it. It gives you an opportunity to start from...

There are a few other options in that price range as well. I'd add a Sanger v215, Centurion Avalanche and a Tige 22v to the list. They won't have as nice of a wakeboard wake as the Mastercraft or...

The V210 will have more room in the cab but the 205 is still regarded as one of the best older hulls for wakeboading. Its the same hull as the original Xstar and the 205V then the X1, then X2. ...

I chose SurfWAKE because its being formed by the boat, but it seems like the term Wave gets used the majority of the time were out wakesurfing. I think its mostly because its the closest thing to a...

Isnt the Avy hull exactly the same for all years, as well as the RZ2? So hypothetically the surf wave should be the same. Might be a small difference depending on things like the prop or trans, but...
