This was our first summer behind a true towboat. Our 04 outback has a tower and the factory under seat ballast. I know the LSVs looks bigger inside and newer always looks bigger but...

How much of a difference would I see upgrading to a LSV? Is there a hull difference? Does the G3 make a big difference?

Thanks,
Jamie

I upgraded from an 2009 Outback V to a 2009 LSV within the same year for a few reasons. The first thing I would ask you is what kind sports do you use your boat for ski, wakeboard or Surfing? If you plan on doing the surfing, then the LSV for sure. The LSV is a bigger boat, with way more over head tower clearence (about 6 - 8" taller when staninf in the boat). The B3 system is great for turing up some pretty huge wakes, also for surfing, the B3 allows you to fill only one corner of the boat to tip it in the direction the surfer rides on. But then in reallity you cant go wrong with both choices, just a matter of $$$ and what you want to use it for.

My last name is ABBott ....

I primarily wakeboard but I'm very interested in surfing behind the boat. My kids would go tubing all day everyday. (I make them do drills on the wakeboard or skiis to earn passes on the tubes)

How different would the outback lsv be to the mobius lsv - 1 foot right, I want to maximize my ride but minimize the cost.

Funny. I some times forget the kneeboard so jr will ride the wakeboard more...it has worked.

That is a dirty, filthy trick to pull on a kid. I know this because . . . oh well, let's just say I've heard of others that have done it too.
