im looking into buying my first boat after riding for almost seven years now. one of my good friends is looking to sell his 2003 malibu vlx to me for 24000. i have looked all over the internet and cant find another 2003 for under 30. the boat is very clean with only one minor scratch on the side about the length of my pinky finger. the seats are clean as well with no rips or tears in them at all. the engine has 500 hours on it, i know thats alot but its my first boat. he told me if i wanted it he would sell it with the kicker L7 and memphis speakers in it as well as another memphis amp if i wanted to put tower speakers on in the future. my question....is this a good deal?? also am i going to have to really sink it to get a good wake out of it? i have only ridden on the 07 and newer vlx. thanks for any input!!
