Make sure you realize that in some ways, a true inboard is harder to drive. With an outboard or outdrive (I/O) you are able to steer as you reverse, because the prop moves with the turn. On an inboard, you only have a rudder behind the prop, so whne you are in reverse, not too much water is passing over the rudder, so you generally just back up in one direction or another. It takes some getting used to. Plus, int he 10k range, you're more likely to get a large open-bow I/O than a similarly sized true in board.
Also note, for skiers/ etc, theres more a feeling of safety with an inboard, as the prop is all the way under the boat, rather than out in the open (you should still NEVER operate the prop with someone near the swim deck... accidents happen).
