I wish I would of known - We just sold our 05 X9 in October - High $20's, 350 hours, Orange, perfect shape - great all around boat - Runs ok in the chop. Decent wake for skiing, fill the two ballast tanks and you've got a nice wake for boarding or surfing.

I say grab a 205 if you lean toward skiing, 205v if you lean toward boarding. You can always make up the weight in the back of the 205v for with ballast. It's a bit hard remove the aft weight in the 205v to replicate a direct drive for skiing. The second generation 205 does fine in the chop, particularly when compared to an older Stars & Stripes.

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.

Besides that, it just needs a real good interior cleaning and a few new seat skins as well as a good buff/polish/wax, and it'll be a great boat.


So how are you planning on taking care of those gouges? I have a buddy that has one gouge like those and though it is not as deep as yours it does go through two colors of Gel. I told him I'd help him fix it.....

Are you doing that work yourself or having it professionally done?

That stuff I'll be attempting to do myself. You can get color matched gel, thankfully this should be easier since it's white, and white blends much easier than trying to match a colored gel. I'll try one scratch, see how it turns out and evaluate the situation as to whether I want to continue on or give it to a pro. Youtube videos don't make it seem too bad as long as you're ok with wetsanding... that's about all it consists of. Clean the gouge, fill the gouge, sand and polish to a nice finish.

The nose I'll definitely have done professionally

At the moment I do more boarding than skiing, but I'm not exclusive to either. I like that there's more room in the 209/x9, as well as it being a little better in rougher water. I'm also more partial to the looks of the 209/x9. I think it'll come down to the deal I get whether I take a variation of the 205 or the 209 though, as I'd love either one.

We lived in Columbia, MO about 10 years ago and had a 205v at the time......LOTO and a 205v is not a good combination on weekends. Anywhere else Norfork, Bull Shoals and Table Rock was great. LOTO and ski boats during the weekends are not a good combination.
