Considering V205/X2/X1 - Advice Requested

Hello all:

We are located in Spokane WA. We have decided to make the plunge into an inboard boat and have somewhat zeroed in on the V205/X2/X1 hull as (hopefully) within our budget $35K and meeting out needs (25% wake boarding, 25% tubing, 25% lounging, 10% skiing and hopefully being able to try wake surfing.

One question we had is can we make the boat have very little wake for beginning wake boarders?

Are we on the right track with looking at this boat?

Here is one:

This one is newer but has more hours and is probably out of our price range but maybe it's so much better we should try to stretch? I'd be interested in thoughts on that please:

What other things should we consider, ask the dealers/owners about? Is a motor compression check necessary or advisable for purchase? How important is a water test (it's been a bit chilly lately)

I know these are newbie questions, please feel free to point me to other threads that I should consider. From what I've read you guys know A LOT about boats and I appreciate any advice.

Thanks much, Steve
