You must have some wrap around seating in there.
If you have a 97 VLX I am almost positive you have the same exact hull as the 05 Vride. The wake hull is the SV23. I am pretty sure the following boats have that hull.
-1996 to 2000 Sunsetter VLX(not sure what year they started but whatever the first year is)
-1999-2004 wakesetter VLX
-95 to 2004 or so Sunsetter/Sunsetter LX
-2005-whenever they stopped I-ride
There were other boats prior to these year like the echelon and the original response that weere on the SV23 as well.
