I wanted a mix of performance, family, and ski. My first choice if up to me would be a Hydrostream with a big motor, but alas I have kids and need room for a beer cooler so I chose the Malibu.....I cant wait to get it in the water, I think I will be very happy.

The Avatar pic is my best friends Ski Ray.....it works well for his family all around, so I am hoping the Malibu will work the same for me.

Well, I don't pick my boat up until next Sunday due to work, BUT, the PO put all the interior back in to facilitate the tow home. The interior doesn't look as bad as it did in the first pics he sent me. I might be able to reuse some of it, and get on the water NOW and redo it in the winter. IMG_0278.jpg

Looks really good from the outside - interiors are easy, I had mine redone locally 6 years ago. Have fun with it and do something unique.

When I see BU's in this condition, I can only shake my head. Like Michigan said, interior

can be easily redone.

Have fun with you new toy!
