Nope, no problems or dislikes. I kinda help out the local Malibu dealer and get a new boat every year so I know the things I want on my boats. I might of got the 8.1 motor... I'm a big power fan and love having a lot... I went with the Hammerhead and it's fine, just not big block power!
If you are looking for a decent ski wake in a big boat have you checked out the 23 Xti? It is on the LSV hull but is a Direct drive boat, so the wake is going to be a little better for slalom skiing, but if you load it down right you will get the same wake the LSV is capable of. I have my demo 04 Xti currently for sale and my LSV will be for sale the end of the summer. Email me if you have any more questions or might be interested in either boat. email@example.com
