Stock vs stock, I prefer the G21.
Reason being is the G21 has a lip similar to the 210/230.
Both stock wakes are similar in height and transition length, but the peak of the G21 gives a really nice boot straight up, which is my preference since I came from the steep supra wakes and now a 230.
Both G wakes are about equally wide also.

Now since no one has loaded a G21 besides the pros, we'll have to wait and see how that boat handles extra weight. The general consensous from the nautique pros is that the G23 is bigger when slammed, which makes sense.
When did g21s hit the show room?

I just looked at one here in Salt Lake and was really impressed with it. Wife is giving me a little push back at spending over 115k on a new boat but this would be the boat I get if I buy new.

Depends on the dealership and when their boat show is.
Some have had one for a few weeks.

I saw the G21 last weekend and sat in it remembering some of the comments about it being uncomfortable. I didn't have any problem with it. The seats seemed to sit up a little straight, but it didn't keep me from getting into a comfy position. Maybe my opinion would change if on the water, and maybe that is what it will take. Either way, I did not see it being something I could not live with, if I were buying that boat, which I am not. I found out when the in water boat show is at our lake, which is at the end of April, so I look forward to taking a spin in the new G.

BTW, I think it is funny when people talk about the Lam Schedule of the CC boats, considering I used to be the FRP engineer for them. Granted, most of the lam schedule was predetermined before I got there, but I was the one that made the CAD drawings for all the lam schedules. Do they use a chopper gun? Yes, but they also use hand laid glass mat. Both manufacturers have been building boats for a long time and know what they are doing. I can assure you that they both build very high quality boats, no matter the road they take to get there.

I definitely agree about the quality of both.
But some people argue that Nautiques fiberglass isn't thick enough and can be weak, and some say MC is too thick. In your experience, is there really any difference between the two as far as thickness goes? Is one theoretically better?
