For the little bit extra I would look at an early '90s 205 if you can swing it. It's a much better ride in chop, better swim platform for getting equipment on, and most people like the wake better.

2005 MCX Throttle Adjustment

Just got a new to me 197. Love the boat, but the throttle has some "play" in it. RPMs climb before trans shifts and the boat lurches. Is there an easy way to adjust the throttle?
