What would be a good boat for a guy who has never owned an inboard? Really like Tige's taps system, but would also consider other brands. Wakeboarding skills are intermediate or better, but can't do enough behind an i/o to be happy. Would like to keep the price near $20,000 or less. Any help please.

MC 205 Direct Drive or an open bow Correct Craft of some kind...maybe a Correct Craft SS if you can go a little higher.

I'm doing a lot of serious looking at the Toyota Epics...

From everything I have read and seen its a great boat with a phenominal engine...

Deals to be had...Check out and also the thread on this board

the SS and MC 205 are your best bets in that price range

we bought a 94'MC205 for 13k w 525hrs. and it has been great.tower,sacs,stereo system above avg. condition. It throws a great wake w/ 1000-1200lbs in rear(Launch Pad Sofa)& the front. Upholstery ect.. holds up well ect... Does not have alot of bells and whistles but u don't have to worry about every little scratch and ding ect.. JUST HAVE FUN. JM2cents

I think that question really depends on your financial situation and what you can afford to spend. As an example if cost is not an option I would go ahead and get the best I could afford. If it is and you are new to the sport a modest used boat may be the way to go. Whatever you decide, you will probably be happier in the long run if you find a new or used V-drive boat of whatever brand......just some thoughts
