Darn it!

You guys have me thinking about summerizing the 205, and I haven't finished my winter ski trips yet!

We still have a blizzard (or two) to go before I can get out on the water.

Just curious, does anyone have any hard proof, everything else being equal, that a ProStar is worth more than a ProSport, or vice versa?

While the boat is on the trailer, grab the rudder and turn it both ways, make that it has a smooth action. While on the water, do lock to lock turns at different speeds, make sure it doesn't bind.
