The new 215 was a much needed addition to the SANGER line up, I'm very happy that when they finally added a new model it was a great design... Is it better than the 210?? That is a matter of personal opinion actually. I PERSONALLY loved the 210 until I took some customers on a demo Thursday. Yes it is a bit wider of boat but it also has a steeper V in the hull than the 210. High school physics can tell you that a "flatter" surface VS. a "steeper" V bottom will be harder to sink into any type of medium...
If you were going to try and save someone who broke the ice & fell into a frozen lake, would you use a piece of plywood to slide out on? (spreading the weight over a large area)
OR... Would you run to your garage and grab your kids pogo stick and try to hop out to the rescue?? (focusing the same weight on less area)
You would easily penetrate the ice with less of a surface area, so the pogo stick would quickly have you joining the list in need of rescue. If we apply the same principle to the boat issue 210 VS 215 we can deduct that a boat hull with NOT ONLY less surface area BUT ALSO a steeper hull angle (more chiseled) will be easier to "sink" creating increased water displacement in effect providing a larger wake size.

"WINTERIZING A SANGER"
This is the paraphrased version....
1. Flush engine with fresh water flushing device.
2. Disconnect the bottom end of all water hoses on the cooling system.
3. Remove freeze plugs from block (2 I think)
4. VIP- Place a tag on dash area saying WINTERIZED
5. Add fuel stabilizer to gas tank if prolonged storage is planned.
* There are a few other steps you can do but these are the main issues of importance...
