2005 Mobius LSV vs. Outback V
Hi all, I'm new to the forum. This question has probably surfaced somewhere on here before so forgive me if it's an old one.
I've set my sights on purchasing a used Outback V as I think it will be the best fit for my family's needs and if I understand it correctly, the Outback V started production in 2006.
I'm wondering if the 2005 (and earlier) Mobius LSV is pretty much the exact same boat as a 2006 Outback V (Hull design, Length, Freeboard, Ballast system, etc...). So essentially the characteristics of the wake and handling of the boat would be very similar if not the same?
Any help would be greatly appreciated by someone who knows first hand.

I had an 05 lsv. It is the same hull as the 06 and up Outback. So the 05lsv is a 20.5 foot boat and in 06 it moved up to a 21.5 foot boat I believe. The only thing you need to look at on the 05 is where the tower mounts to the boat. Make sure there are no stress cracks. They went to the two-spot mount in 06 versus the 3 spot mount in 05. If there are no cracks I say go for the lsv becuase it will inherently be cheaper than an 06.
