Unless you buy or make a center jumpseat.
I ski behind my '93 190 and Rats '93 205.
I get into -38 off behind both boats and enjoy skiing behind both boats. If you ask what is better I will say mine just because I own it and it is mine. Wake difference is slightly smaller on the 190 and at -22 off the bump is not as bad on the 190. Other than that they are very fine skiing machines.
I would buy based off of family size and open bow vs closed.
I WOULD NOT BUY OFF OF WAKE PATRERN!!!! They are practically the same.
