Good Morning everyone,
Just moved to Tampa, FL and I'm trying to figure out what boat to buy?

GOAL: Buy the best boat for the money that will provide me with an outstanding wake, durability in salt water environment, minimize excessive costs in fuel consumption and maintenance, and be on the water boarding as much as possible.

BOAT USAGE: Weekend I plan on trailering the boat to fresh water lakes and rivers however during the week I'm surrounded by salt water and I want to wakeboard right after work on tampa bay.

IDEA #1: I know MasterCraft and Tige have some salt water packages but very expensive, but I'm still considering this. Willing to spend 35K max.

IDEA #2: Buy a center console deep V outboard boat and add ballast/tower etc... Problem with this is that I have no idea how the wake will turn out from this setup. The positives are that I could do this setup much cheaper, the boat would be mostly fiberglass so it would hold up better in salt and I could use the boat for other uses like fishing. Wakeboarding is my PRIMARY focus and the main reason for owning the boat.

Any boat recommendations, advice, or past experience would be very appreciated.

I want to hit that water ASAP...please HELP!!!
