Towards the end of last season I bought my first inboard (87' supra comp). Let me just start by saying it is an amazing boat, low 400 hours, leather has barely been touched, runs great. Unfortunately it just doesn't do what our family is looking to do. The closed bow makes the boat a bit snug, the whole family just can't fit. The wake on the supra is a bit tall and sharp at times, making it a bit difficult to progress. This year our family was hoping to get into some course skiing and we're looking to upgrade. Two of the boats I happened to come across was a 98' response lx and 01 ski nautique. From what I have come across through various forums on the Internet, both were extremely well designed for the time period and have some of the best wakes for slalom. If anybody has any opinions on either boat feel free to weigh in, all comments are greatly appreciated. Both boats are priced at $14k, budget is really no more than $15k.
