    I love the storage in my OBV! I ordered it without ballast, with wakeplate and am very happy. Ballast is an easy add-on too, so if you ever decide you want it you can plumb it in. The ski locker is huge too - I have a double boot 65" Radar ski, plus 2 batteries, and its not even close to full.

    I have 3 adult skis and 2 junior skis in mine. I removed the center sac and installed a bow sac instead. I love the change.

    +1, my slalom ski lives in the cubby behind spotter seat/under p-side bow seats, plenty of room.

    I also went from 18 ft I/O and almost bought OBV but decided on LSV for a little more room to grow. There is so much more storage for us now that we have nothing on the floor or on the seats. Everything gets tucked away somewhere....and we keep the slalom ski in the locker as we rarely fill the center ballast.

    When do you pick it up? Probably can be on the water tomorrow if you beat sharpshooter to the dealership.

    It would be a great thing to pick it up tomorrow, unfortunately I will have to wait until January. Even if I could get it tomorrow the ramp we usually use is under water. Water levels are so high that only the tops of the channel markers are above water. Literally the pointed tops of the buoys are all that can be seen.

    I appreciate all of the suggestions I have received. I will definitely start checking out the LSV too. I've been reading the teasers for the new Mondo that is coming out as well.

    I will be getting my first taste of inboard boating this weekend. My brother in law has invited my family to go camping and he is bringing his new wakesetter he bought about a month ago.

    That'll get you hooked. Just keep in mind that the stock surf setup on one of those isn't great and needs some serious work to be any good. Not sure if you guys will be surfing.

    I'm already hooked. I decided some time ago what type of boat I was going to upgrade to. Only had to decide new/used, features and cost. I really want the wife to get behind it. Once she does my budget will definately go through the roof.
    We probably will do some surfing so I will keep that in mind.

    unless it's the diamond cut hull, betting the ski wake will be less than stellar as well. obv and lsv should slalom a lot better than that boat so don't base a ski decision on it either..
