Agreed. If $42 buys it, it seems fair. $45 seems a little high.

I had the same question(s) before buying my XT22. Essentially no difference. I chose the 22 basically because I thought it'd be slightly more desirable for resale with the pickle fork bow and the...

You're dead on with your pricing estimate. What transmission? What options? Zero off? Not a lot of X14 DD's out there. I think barefoot should scoop this one up.

That is in fantastic shape, and is the ideal color for a 90's boat. Nothing outdated about it. Makes me want to buy it! (I don't use my current boat enough, btw...)

I think this was the one-year '05 tower which made its way into the early production 06's. The other version of the '06 tower was rock-solid, both from what I've heard, and experienced.

There is usually very low roi on a boat. But I agree completely that your X2 is worth nearly what you paid. The '05 ish - '11's haven't lost much value at all in the past 6-7years.
