    I am fine with traveling a few hundred miles or shipping one, but no big bulky wake towers. First, it has to fit in my garage, and next I just like the traditional look of an inboard without the rack. No offense to the wakeboard guys with the huge racks, just not my style.

    You can always take the tower off , leave the holders for future resale or use

    I had a similar style boat before I got an open bow v drive and love the extra room for the family. Even if I got a direct drive I would hold out for an open bow, some great deals are out there and one could be had in your budget.

    Finding a Boomerang with MPI may be extremely difficult. I don't have any facts to back it up, but I doubt that many were made.

    I'm with petty and tarheel on this one. A word of warning though. If you only ski and only have one friend then a 'rang is probably the right boat for you. But take a minute and think about how much time you want to spend on the water. Do you want to go out all day? Bring friends? You might like the versatility of the Outback better even though it doesn't have the classic closed bow look. Also, if you have kids I"ll guarantee they will want to wakeboard too. There's nothing wrong with a dedicated ski only type boat but make darn sure that's what you will want a year or two from now.

    You might think about an Outback with tower removed for a year or two but maybe putting it back on later. Or maybe you'll just have two or three boats for all your activities. Good luck whatever you decide. Hope you end up in the Moomba family.

    The boat thing kinda reminds me of the house thing in a way. My brother and his wife moved into a new house with their baby. I said, "How are the schools around there?" He said, "Schools? What do we care? We just have a baby." Four years later they were looking for houses again and had two little kids, one of them starting school. They also had a hard time selling because the schools were lousy. Same thing happens with a boat. You get a good one and realize you like being on the water all day but wish it was more comfortable, had more storage, was capable of doing more activities, etc. You also might want to bring another couple and their kid or kids. It's OK to think about that stuff now.
