Same reason she needs so many shoes.

Great boat. Virtually identical to my brother's. Love the fact they never brought the pink into the interior of the 190s. Too bad they didn't follow suit with the 205s.

Best of luck and congrats on the 197. Have we seen pics of the new one yet?

Well the time has come to start saying goodbye. The 92 has been great to us. The new owner seems to be a good candidate to enjoy and take care of it for years to come. Meeting him Thursday for the final exchange. Feeling like when I sold my first car...Hate to see it go!

Officially sold. New owner picked it up tonight. Hoping he will be along soon to take advantage of the forum. Now it's time to focus on enjoying the new to us 197.

Congrats! Hopefully you got a good price. I just went through this earlier this week with a '93. Similar setup with 4 kids, but I'm looking to go a little bigger than a 197. We'll see.

Good luck with your search. 214 was our first choice, but we weren't willing to spend 214 money at this point. Brother has an X9 and its sweet, but we were not willing to go that far away from the slalom wake we had. We love the 197 but there are sacrifices.

I'm in that situation, except I'm looking at big ddrives and select, skiable vdrives (definite compromises there). What compromises do you see with the 197? Does it feel materially bigger with your whole family onboard than your 190?

Actually I was shocked how much bigger the 197 feels than our 190. Two big differences, the first is obvious and that is the kids love the open bow and spend most of the time up there and the second is how much wider the 197 is. Believe the width of the 197 is 92" vs the 190 which was 85". That 7" really makes a big difference in the size of the observer and rear seat, as well as the walk around room. Storage space isn't bad either with the addition of the storage trunk in the rear. My 08 had the MTS and that was the first thing to go when I brought the boat home, as it took up all of the space under the observer seat.

Performance wise, I'm once again pleasantly surprised. Even though the 197 is significantly wider, I would argue the wake on the 197 at 15 off at 30 MPH is as good or better than the 190. We use the boat for everything and my oldest is 12 and with a ballast bag or two has been surfing the 197.

I know it may not be popular on this site and obviously I couldn't bring myself to go away from MC, but I really considered the bigger DD SN's. In my opinion SN's and MC's are one in the same in quality, performance, fit and finish and are some of the best boats on the water.

I would encourage you to drive everything. Cruise, ski and get lots of opinions as you begin your search. Everyone has their top priorities in what they want in a boat and for us and our family's priorities the 197 was/is the best of everything.

I switched from a 190 to 197 as well. Amazing the size difference but my friend had a 197 I was always using prior to purchasing so it wasn't as big of shock to me. I had mini towers on both and that really makes a large difference for storage, shade, room, etc.

Lets see some pictures of the 197 and congrats.
