Thanks for the detailed response. I think you have hit on one of my main concerns - while we are not expert waterskiiers, I don't want to regret it later if the lip of the wake is a little high. I just don't know if I will ever notice it - and the family fits well in the Maristar and my wife likes it too. I am sure either will be fine. Does anyone actually have the 2004 Maristar 210 (I coudn't tell if that is exactly what you have, bturner2?
