A lot to digest, so I'll see if I can encapsulate what I've read:
PS205v - not a great hull for choppy water and maybe a little small
X30 - great size and surfing capabilities, but not a skier
X10 - maybe the best bet in my price range because of the deeper hull (based on the Maristar) is okay on chop and a decent skier.
The post about the Maristar made me laugh because that boat is identical to my in-laws boat (also the reason I've been trying to buy our own boat). I know that's a good boat, but I cannot pull into my driveway with the same boat as my wife's parents (and pay about the same as they did 6 years ago for it).
Am I interpreting all of this correctly so far?
