Dave you couldn't have said it better. Of course you and I are biased a little because of the boats we have I would love to have all the modern conveniences in my 93 like Zero off and drive by wire; but no way I could afford a new one, nor would I sell my 93.

C'mon guys - love the new prostar - and hope they sell lots - it just makes ours that more valuable...

Besides - let moomba, calabria, MB, and others make the cheap ones..

I'm certainly not a skier, and I love it. Hard to understand some of the criticisms.
