Every time I see one for sale close to here, I want to go buy it! My wife always says, "sure, but you need to get rid of your current boat". It pretty much ends right there. The wake length is probably not helped with the boat only being 19'. Maybe it would be better as a wakeboarding boat, but that boat with a tower would be a sad sight to see.
