Thinking about making the switch from a DD to a V-Drive for a variety of reasons. I would love to hear some pros and cons on what you guys recommendations are. I am leaning towards a non-pickle fork because my dock isn't well suited for one. I would like to stay around 21' I currently have a Supra. I love the quality of the boat.

Leaving these off of the list because I don't like each for my own reasons.(Not here to debate why I dont like them.)

Thinking of staying in the 35K range and here are the boats I am thinking of entertaining.

If you have a Supra and like it then why don't you step into a 22SSV... Nice wake for the money. Know someone who sold a pretty mint 03 for 25... you should be able to get early 2000s(2002-2005 for prices from 25-35...

What did you like most about your DD that you would not like to give up?

Hey Burrel and Rally,

Wanted to get back to you both on your questions...sorry for the delay been on the road for work.

What do I like most about my DD? Favorite thing about it is the quality of the build(Supra).

Ski - 15%
Wake - 50%
Surf- 35%

Typical Crew - 8ish

Yes my lake gets rough especially on the weekends but I get my riding done in the morning and late late evening.

I am open to pickle-fork, but prefer to stick with standard bow just so I don't have to break out the saws and redesign the front of my slip.(The boards are cut at an angle to give me closer access to the bow when it is on the lift. I can re-do it relatively easy, but don't really want to.)

A little more but a great looking MB

Can't see the pics but a newer model 22SSV for 38k

Another one that you can't see the pics but would be a great option at 38k

A little bit small supra

Nice looking boat way under your budget
