I'm working on a deal on a 2000 230 VRS right now that has the potential to be really good $$$ wise.
It has no tower or ballast but I can add that myself (~$2,500 for tower, ~$800 for ballast) and still come in several thousand under what a comparable (Age, condition, engine hrs etc.) factory wakeboard equipped V-Drive would cost.
I'm turned on by the people capacity of this boat because just me, the wife, and kids is 5 people.
I've read that the wake isn't exactly superb for boarding but neither am I. I've been wake boarding off and on for 15 years with most of that spend behind flat boats and center consoles.
Just wondering if this is a good choice or would I be better off with something like a 21' V-Drive of some sort. Keep in mind that the 21' would likely have to be in worse condition with more hrs. than this one to be the same price as the 230 + $3-4k for add ons.
