    Thanks! I ran out of time yesterday and didn't get a chance to post any pics, but I wanted to at least get something out there ASAP. I'll try to post the pics soon, but in the meantime interested parties can check out my classified ad on the MalibuCrew.com website at:

    Nice, only 110 hours! As an owner of an 04 RLXi I can't say enough good things about this model. Why would you bother to buy new...

    It's a great boat and I will miss it. But I retired a year ago and I need to reduce costs (I'm paying $280 per month for dry storage at the marina). In addition, I have a really bad knee that has gotten a lot worse in the last year, so much so that I no longer feel comfortable on a slalom ski. And finally, as I have gotten older, my interests have changed such that we rarely ever go to the lake anymore. We only used the boat twice in the last year. Hopefully, I can find a good home for it with someone else who will get more enjoyment from it than we do anymore.

    I also have it listed on BoatTrader.com. But it's a specialized boat that only water skiers truly appreciate so that's why it's listed on this forum.

    You should list it on Ski-it-again.com also.

    Thanks for the help selling the boat. I listed it this morning on Ski-It-Again, comp boat classifieds. Looking at other ads on that website, I think I have it priced well. As ozski said in his post above, the 2003-2004 Malibu Response LXi is a wonderful ski boat... many skiers say it's better than the newer ones.

    If that boat could be upgraded to ZO (I don't believe it can), I know someone who is in the market for something just like yours. Very nice boat.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    Thanks to everyone for their interest and comments on my boat. I have reached an agreement to sell the boat to a buyer in Southern California.

    Congrats, that boat was a real find for the money. If I needed a boat...it's just what I look for in that it's well depreciated, low hours, and meticulous care.

    Congrats jrainlay. the 03 LXI hull is one of the best. Somebody is getting a killer boat for a great price! What are you replacing it with?

    Could you please buy a CC 200 with the 6.0, keep it for about 5 years while putting 50 hours or so on it...then post it for sale where I will see it? I can help with color selection.
