Congratulations!

No big issues on these boats that I'm aware of, other than getting to the back of the dash is a royal PITA. I think your year moved to the in-tank fuel pump (mine is an external electric), but I haven't heard that they have as many problems as the early 2000's in-tank pumps.

If you store water toys in the engine compartment, people report getting quite impatient with the opening/closing times. Someone on here removed the motor, added some gas shocks and a latch, and turned it manual. I've seriously considered that mod.

The Ski wake isn't great on mine, and I don't imagine it's better on yours. I've considered a retrofit trim tab, as it's been reported to make the wake much better.

Let me know if you have any questions, I've done quite a bit of work on mine.
