Boat purchased in 08 So anyone that's been around this sight long enough knows the legacy and performance of the 196 so I'll just stick to the facts. Since my buddy does not surf this sight I'm helping him out. Reason for sale: he found real surfing and that has become his passion. I have put many many hours both behind the wheel and at the end of the line with this boat. Performance is stellar. I've driven it for slalom, jump and trick and its better then most. Very dialed in. As for its care, it has lived on a crystal clear, and I mean crystal clear deep water private slalom lake all its life. It's been on a lift, in a boat house under a full waterline cover when not in use. Wiped down inside and out after each set with EagleOne Wax&Dry. Oil changed on schedule as well as all the other general maintenance needs. Like new condition would be an understatement. It has PP with slalom and jump switch. It is multi line display so easy upgrade to ZBox and is compatible with ZO conversion. Back seat never used and has been stored indoors. Asking 30k. .
