Yeah, I'm not getting a great deal on it by any means; I'm getting a reasonable deal on it. There just aren't many great deals out there right now, and they go real quick. But I sold my Supra today for a good price so it's not a whole lot more for me to switch to the LSV. By adding V-drive, perfect pass, completely plumbed ballast, 1/3 the hours, the color I like, fold down tower (mine you have to remove rear bolts, and I have to to get under my hoist), and a few other nice little options my boat doesn't have, I think it's probably worth it. If I were to keep my Supra I would probably do about $2500 in upgrades (including perfect pass), and I'm spending about $6000 more than what I'm selling my Supra for to get the LSV.

done deal then. BUY IT!
Just FYI - while the tower does fold on this boat by removing a few knob screws, it folds forward towards the bow. Some have found this challenging to do with only one person and the height of the boat actually increases as the tower arcs up before coming to rest on the bow. I would have had to lower the tower before it went on the lift to then get the boat out of the water. I never folded the tower unless the boat went in the garage.Drew

I definitely think it is an upgrade over what you have though. If you can't find the '06 LSV or '08 Outback in the price range you are looking for I say go for it.2011 Mobius LSV 325HP EFI

Well the deal fell through on the 05, actually due to an issue on my end not the seller's. I was pretty upset Tuesday night when I realized I wasn't going to be able to get it. But then I went surfing behind my Supra that night and felt a lot better.
However, very shortly after that on Weds morning, I made a deal with bigr82 on his 2006 Mobius LSV that popped up in the classifieds on here! It's basically just like the 05, same color I wanted and everything, but the 06 so I was stoked! I sold my boat yesterday, helped the guy set up his hoist and everything last night. Now it's just closing out the money transaction and picking up the boat! It's funny how everything is coming together; I guess this 06 was just meant to be!
Thanks for everybody's help and thanks to this forum's classified section! I think I'll be more satisfied with the 2006 anyway from what you guys are saying about the differences in 06 and 05! I'm sure I'll be on here more often now, switching from the Supra forum to the Moomba lol!
