There is a nightmare story on here about uShip. Boat held hostage, tons of gel damage from a loose shrink wrap when it was finally delivered. No way would I do that.

I'm with you on valuing reliability over fuel mileage. However, a large portion of the market does care about fuel costs, not to mention having to meet government regulations. So, I'm looking...

Fair enough. I was referring to the engine / drivetrain technology. You won't find twin turbos or cylinder deactivation. It will be interesting to see what they come up with to catch up in the fuel...

Pretty sure JohnE had Cory make a cover for his '08 X14 DD. I believe '07-'10 direct drive X14/214s should be all the same with the ZFT-3 tower.

My '93 had wood in the back seat base. I replaced it with composite decking when I re-upholstered. I never had the side panels off so can't comment on them. But yes, definitely no wood in the hull.

I'm biased but I'd lean the 93-94. I had a '93 PS 190, arguably one of the best ski wakes of all time. That one looks in great shape and it has half the hours. Tons of life left in it.

The Huskys are better hands down. I've had both. Weathertech are ok, but they are stiff and despite the form fit they slide around. The Huskys are supple, fit great and stay in place. The Huskys...

My thoughts and I'm not a pro by any means. It isn't really an all-star at anything, but it tries to do everything.

The ski wake is decent. I usually ski around 30-32 and there is a pretty big...

Any pictures of them installed? Are they pretty snug to not flap while towing?
