I am looking at buying a used one and I understand the wake is amazing but the interior seems narrow. It says that is can hold 10 people but what number is confortable.

10 isn't too bad. We have actually had 13 on board plus a rider with the ballast full and it was still managable.

I would say no more that 9 comfortably.

I don't like to have more than 5 riders on my boat. Five with gear and it gets cramped. On just a cruise mission, 8 or so is okay.

I had an 00 for five years and we constantly had 5-7 people in it on a regular basis. It gets tight. I would say seven is enough.

it depends on how good of friends you are with the people and who you have on your boat, some people on my boat i dont mind bumping into

this is a little off topic but the 210 is one of the nicest wake boats ever made.

12 in our was tight but no one had to sit on the floor or stand...everyone had a seat.

we have the seating style with full wrap though, i've seen them w/ only partial so there would clearly be less seats in those

pretty much any 20-21 foot boat -4 to 5 with gear is really pushing it ( though the new mc x2's interior is amazing)

I only allow four on mine when we go out. Anymore than that and it starts to get annoying.

Of course if it were hot girls my limit would probably go up.

we put 8 in ours all the time, everyone fits very comfortably. Driver, plus three across the back, one on the side bench, one in the flag-holder seat, two in the bow.

We don't generally run extra weight though, don't really need it with that many people in the boat (at least we don't). You still have room for a cooler and/or gear behind the driver's seat. You can also tuck bags and stuff under the bow cushion and in the walkway, plus some stuff at the driver's feet. We can get four boards on the racks, and one surf board on a seperate rack. Don't know what other gear people are hauling out, but we have plenty of room with 8. 10 is do-able, but tight.

People are getting spoiled by bigger boats these days. It might be a little tighter in a boat like the SAN, but nobody on my boat complains...of course, if they did they wouldn't get invited back!

when i said 12 it was:

2 guys riding - me and friend
8 girls, all smaller
2 other guys that came with girls, and they had to sit in front.... "we need your weight up there guys, the wake just isn't right otherwise... oh what, you want to sit by your girlfriend, can't hear you, music is too loud, sorry."

This weekend I saw 10 or 11 people and a tube in an old malibu skier. I think there were like five seats in the boat, there were some sitting on the gunwales a few sitting on the motor and the rest I think had no choice but to stand up the whole time.

Do people get popped for haveing too may people on the boat in Texas? The sticker says 10 people or so much weight max. I know in California , it was a big deal, but theres no flag rule in Texas so is an overwighed boat (People) a big deal?

We have had 13 people in our boat and two dogs at one time. The wake was HUGE. It is an 07 for sale $57,000 if you are interested. We love it so much, we have an 08 now.
Old     (bmh2208)      Join Date: Apr 2004       05-12-2008, 11:16 AM Reply really depends on the lake you are at. We ski at a local utility lake and all they care about is having enough life jackets aboard.

I wouldn't try overloading it on the bigger lakes (conroe, travis)...those wardens are straight up nazis.
