I saw the thread title and was expecting a pic of a tower mounted on the bottom of the boat.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Buy it. We could be twins. Although I don't have the x2.
Great boat. May have better wake than the 98 closed bow. I like it better than 95-97 closed bow wake.

This will push me to try and get a ride behind a 209 next summer to see for myself.

Good point. The lxi diamond hull is supposed to ski well. The is a wake hull and diamond hull though.
Mc fit and finish is better in the era IMO. And the 214 is a darn good looking machine.

214 / x14 hull is completely different than 209 hull.
This is the right choice for you based on multiple opinions I've seen. Multiple folks say 214 is pretty close to the 197. 209 is nowhere close....

Agree to look at v drive as 2nd boat plan or 214 as one. Two DDs would seem odd unless you eventually plan to settle for 209 ski wake and sell the 205.
