I believe it's a 1998 Maristar. 20' or 21' - whichever it is. The ski wake is much better than my parents' boat - 1994 Bayliner.
We have put some sacks in it for surfing and are figuring out the setup for that, and thats the only boat I've surfed behind.
I was spoiled as a kid - one of the primary boats I grew up skiing behind was an early-90s PS190 with weight removed for less of a wake.
That's why I was trying to lean towards something like the PS205v. I've read good things about the hull for skiing and, when configured correctly, surfing. I was afraid of the ride in choppy water, but I want to be able to use the boat during the day, not just first thing in the morning and the evening.
