I'm looking at a 2001 SAN for sale pretty close to me. This will be my first inboard so I would appreciate any tips on what to look for. Obviously I will make sure everything is working (pp, ballast, etc). The seats are in fair shape, but I expect that on an 01. The exterior looks very nice. It has ~500 hours on it. It's in the midwest so I assume freshwater, but I'll double check.
What else should I look for? Would this be a decent starter boat? I'm a beginner/intermediate wakeboarder with 2 small boys that I want to teach, and of course improve myself. I've also considered a similar era X-star, as well as quite a few other brands.
