My wife and i Love ours. Great Surf Wake, Great Wakeboard wake, and We like the Ski Wake better than the one our our X14V. Be sure to get the trim tab. I am having surf tabs installed now at Portland Ski Boat Center, so we will have to see if that makes a big difference on the surf wake. I wouldnt go any smaller that the 6.0 motor. My boat will be there until Saturday if you want to go take a look at it.
