Good on the Tige.
No price on the MC, haha, probably in shock.
Looked at the Four Winns deckboat and amazed on the quality of our wakeboats. Also surprised the I/O was that much $ for what I saw.

I, as well, looked at a deckboat, only from bayliner at the boat show. I figured when I'm too old to surf/board, I will still want to be on the water and they are a great alternative.

$38k for a 21ft boat with a 190hp i/o. opening up some of the lockers revealed some VERY unfinished fiberglas work. looked pretty from the outside, but the overall build quality for what you are paying was way too much. that price was the boat show price.

Nice boats, just not worth it to me. Just another reassurance that I made the correct decision 7 years ago purchasing the 03. I really looked hard a the MC back then but would have had to get a direct drive boat that was very cramped feeling and even then was going to cost me 10k more than the V-drive Mobius we got.

yes I know--I had one and it was a closed bow-was drop dead sexy looking but no room

A DD does have its benefits. I can't think of any right now but I'm sure it does.

i watched a video of the X25, i really hate that pickle forked bow design but I love some of the other features it has like the seat backs that fold up on the sundeck to make rear facing seats for relaxing! or the armrests available throughout the boat

the first moomba i ever skiied behind was a mobius DD. i was amazed at how well it pulled but then again that was my first real ski boat to be pulled behind too. its amazing how much of a difference there is from a v6 i/o to a true inboard
