I know it's taboo to recommend another brand but MC just does not have a model in the current line up that fits the bill. If $ isn't an issue I saySN 200v.

2004 AN 216 with two guys in boat:

15 off @ 34 mph hits a very hard table

28 off @ 34 mph is smooth(er) but now getting hull wash

2010 x14v with two guys in boat

15 off @ 34 mph has a definitive table, but it is much softer

28 off @ 34 mph is smooth as a board. No noticeable bump.

** In either case you are still dealing with a table at 15 off. In the case of MC, it is interesting how soft the crossing is despite having the engine in the wrong place (I am an owner and I said it).

I have NOT had the opportunity to ski a 214 DD---I am guessing it is dang near 190 wake crossing with the added bonus of more room for cruising and other sports. I try not to think about it very much; however, I am suspicious the 214 dd or x14dd could be "it"......

I have always read it's easier to take a ski boat and add weight to make it a wakeboard or surf board boat than it its to take weight away or move the engine to center to make a good ski boat.

We started surfing behind our X14 (DD) this year by adding some weight. No complaints from any rider.

I'm also interested to see if anyone has first hand experience to compare the x15 and the old x10/ms210.

Thanks!

What difference do you find the A plate adjustment makes to the wake?

So Rod you are saying that the SN200V skis and surfs better than the 214V? I'm not arguing as I haven't been behind one, but I'm just curious....I searched this on the skitek forum and couldn't find much input.

I am leaning toward either the X14, 214PS, or Malibu VTX. I just spent a week skiing behind my X9/209 every single day, and I had forgotten how much I love slalom.

I know that you can weight down the PS214 DD and create a good surf wave because you have so much room in the back to create a wave, and the engine in the middle helps make the wave longer. That being said, I am quite tired of having ballast bags everywhere in my X9 DD.

If the X14 can be weighted to create a surf wave even a "little" better than what I have on the X9/209, then this could be a winner. I just haven't seen any photos that look promising, and I've seen all of them on TeamTalk. I just find it hard to believe that you can't weight that boat well enough to create a substantial wave, but nothing has yet to appear impressive on this front.

Perhaps if I keep wishing hard enough, a good crossover boat will just come true eventually.

Thanks again for the feedback and comments.
