Go for the 205. The 197 was not the boat it is today in 2001 unless you are a barefooter. And the 209 was not really better at slalom or wakeboarding.

The 2nd generation 205 (1996--2000) is about as well as MC ever did at a perfect crossover boat.

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.

Not much in the midwest, I just bought mine in CA and will ship/drive it back this spring. Much better options when you look elsewhere.

It will just fine for you. Less room than the 205 though. It's more of a slalom specific boat with a wakeboard package. The 02 though still has less hook than the current 197. But it still skis just fine. It just performs a little funky in the slalom course. But as newbies you won't even notice. TypicaL shipping should be about $1-$1.50 a mile.

I paid full now, it's sitting in a climate controlled storage unit till I'm ready to bring it back. Shipping depends on distance & method (pull on trailer, place on flatbed, etc) but for my 2000 miles should be right around 1500 - 1800 from first looks.

I found a 205V a couple years back by expanding my search to include surrounding states - was looking for an X1- expand your craigslist search - it is not big deal these days to get a boat shipped or go see it, if it is THE boat you want.
