We are in the market for a boat this spring. My family had owned a Prostar 205 for the last 14 years, but sold it last year. Now with a young family, it is my turn to carry on the tradition.

One of the boats we love is the 2002-2004 197(X7). We are looking for a well maintained boat with 300 or fewer hours. Tower, heater, tandem axle trailer preferred. We are located in Central Oregon, but would be willing to travel to Washington, Idaho, or northern CA/NV (Sacramento, San Fran., Reno) for the right boat.

Thank you for taking the time to read. Please feel free to call.

That is a good site. I am watching a few of the sites including these and Craigslist. I am hoping that when the weather starts to warm up a little, the availability will pick up a little.

Thanks for the information Dave, the help is appreciated.

Clarification, the preferred options I listed would be nice, but really not necessary.

A tandem axle trailer would be great because we will be hauling the boat a couple hundred miles a couple times a year.

Since we are in the high desert, my wife and kids requested the heater, although I know this can be installed later.

We mainly ski, so a tower isn't necessary until the kids get older. Just nice in preparation.

Thanks again for your consideration.
