I just traded my 2006 22SSV for a 2008 22SSV (similar to 2007). The freeboard on the 2006 is noticeably shorter. It feels like you are sitting on the floor. As for getting soaked...I never had that issue. You will get some spray over the bow in windy/choppy conditions. Not a huge deal.
As for the garage fit...The 2006 22SSV is much more garage friendly. The 2008/2007 sits about 10" higher on the trailer.
I think the 2008/2007 22SSV is a better boat, offering features like: adjustable/swivel helm seat, love seat, longer boat, wider beam, better wake, a TON more storage, and did I say BIGGER.
