Hey guys I have been on the site for a while now and gonna be getting a boat soon and I am looking for a v-drive in the 22-23ft range that will handle rough water the best. I grew up skiing behind an old v-drive flatbottom. Then my dad bought a 89 mastercraft prostar 190 brand new and loved that boat until we got rid of it around 1999. I go out to the local lakes here in so-cal on the weekend but also spend 75% of the time out at my dads house by Havasu so I need something that is gonna handle that monster weekend chop on the river and Havasu. I have been looking at all kinds of v-drives but haven't really decided on one yet. My dad just lost his 24 foot bluewater deckboat (like chaparral) so I am looking at getting a boat now to keep the family out on the water and probably just keep at my pops house. BTW when we go out we usually have 8-12 people atleast with us. Thanks guys.
