That boat has been on there a while and smells very funny. In a previous listing it had more pictures, some of which were found in similar ads all over the country. The listing used to say it had a fresh engine as well.

I'm not saying it's a scam, but I would be very careful.

agree, but it does have telephone number which is not local for here but based on the looks of the house it does appear to be in this area.

On the old pics, you could see golf cart garage doors on both of the houses that were visible. I didn't think that would be Owasso, but I don't know for sure.

Here are some of the pics from the earlier listing:

I will be in Owasso on Monday. I just tried to call, but didn't leave a message.

For slalom, keep looking for a 205. I have skied both generations of 205s and a 209 and there is no comparison. The only place the 209 dominates is interior space. I don't wakeboard, but there's no denying the second generation 205 hull that was also the original Xstar.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That boat also shows up in some postings about a timeshare group for the boat. I was looking at it and it was all just too fishy. The responses from the guy via email were strange as well.

I own a 209, I have has a pull from a few boats. Never a 205 though. So I do not know anything about the wake. I am a open water skier mostly and for my ski level (skiing for 10 yrs recreationally) the 209 is decent. The space is amazing also. We are on smaller lakes so the front bow sitting a little lower we do not notice at all if it does. Go with your gut and get what suits you and the family the best! Happy shopping!

the 209 bow is low. I norm take alil spray if not more over the front daily just b/c our lake gets beat to crap after noon. The 209 wakeboard wake is very good imho but it is a wider wake than most. I've gotten alot of compliments for the wake with 1200 or so lbs of ballast. I don't ski much but have never had others complained. If you were a serious skier........190 or 205. For family room and all around boating the 209 is great.
