Thanks for the recommendations! I would love to find another Cobalt 190 but they quit building them in the late 90s or early 2000s so they're tough to come by. Most of what I see locally in a Cobalt...

Just spent some time browsing at 197s, finding one with the largest motor could be a challenge. I like that a majority of them came from the factory with towers as I would want to swap our Super Fly...

205s are out, great boat but I couldn't get any speed out of it. I figured 197s were the model to consider in my price range. From what I read the hull is the same from 2003 on. Are there any years I...

I'm researching open bow, DD boats with decent barefoot capabilities. 45-50 MPH with minimal chine spray for skiing on the boom are important. I prefer a walk-through bow as well. The Malibu Crew is...

Updating after a year of ownership: gutted the interior and put in new carpet and interior. We updated the stereo as well. We did a good tune-up on the motor and hit 50mph with 5 people in the boat.

Any of the older skis under $1500 are going to be slow, leak a ton of water and have zero potential for any freestyle riding. I've had a few older Kawis and the 650SX is the only one I would...

I'm pretty satisfied with the results after using a DA sander on it today, 80 grit followed by 150 grit paper. I still have to sand the crevices and corners with a sanding block before I oil it.

For future reference, Polk Audio DB651 speakers fit in the 5" opening. You have to use the adapter ring and snap off the "ears" on the outside to make them fit.
