Jody, I know you ski at and around Pickos ski school, and I see they have a 2011 lxi for sale with the mini tower. I have an 07 of the same boat and am looking to get a newer one and yes with the tower as we're on big water and the kids and guests use the tower a lot. I was planning on going the the new txi, but since I plan on getting the tower and have recently seen one with the tower and it doesn't look like it fits the new windshield well, I started to look at the 2011s and found the boat mentioned above. So, I know you have tried the new txi and thought it was a good boat, my questions are: are you familar with the 2011 at Pickos and is it a solid boat? Is the txi that much better that I should focus on heading in that direction? I know tough questions, but any opinions are appreciated and I have read and respect your opinion and advice. Any others with solid advice I'm all ears. thanks a lot.
