I have a 2000 Malibu LSV Escape. I bought it last year and it came with a cover. The cover doesn't look original and is in two pieces. One piece covers the bow and the other piece covers the windshield and everything back to the stern. The cover attaches via snaps. The cover itself is canvas and seems somewhat waterproof. That said, even if it were completely waterproof, the shape over the cover wouldn't prevent water from entering the boat. Anything that lands on the windshield will go right under the bow cover. I've seen other boats that have covers that wrap underneath the bow and seem like they would keep the rain out. I'm getting mildew inside my boat and need to solve this. For outside storage, how do I keep the rain out? Also, bonus points if your solution works for snow also. (I'm in Utah and have been paying to have my boat shrink wrapped in the winter).
Sorry for yet another “help me choose my boat” post, but this one is tricky for me. I have not been in the water in a long time, and just bought a house on a lake. I used to wakeboard growing up behind anything I could, and looking to also start again as well as begin wake surfing. My wife Did not grow up on water, so doesn’t really care, other than having it be a good reliable, long lasting family boat within our budget ($30k..ish). We have 2 small children with cousins that will be coming over. So I have concerns about size on the VRide. So the options are a 2005 Wakesetter 23 LSV with just over 500 hrs. Nothing really seems updates except an extra 750 fat sac. Good condition, no big tears or seam rips, Gel Coat is supposedly in good condition. Tandem axel trailer. This is Not from a dealer, but an individual that is 3.5 hrs away. Price is $35k, which is actually a little over budget. I would have to get local marina to do any testing (I.e compression) We don’t have a truck, so I would have to rent one. The second option is an ‘08 VRide. Has the tower, manual wedge, two 200lb and one 500lb ballast. This is from a dealer about 2 hrs away, who is willing to deliver. They are running through the boat, replacing some things like Ballast pumps, did compression testing, cleaning, etc. pretty good condition, with a little dock rash, a small split in a seam, new custom cover and Bimini, also mid 500 hr range. Price $31k.
Hi there, Looking at purchasing a used LSV 23 most likely around 07-10. Specifically found a 2007 LSV 23 with a hammerhead and some nice add-ones like surf gate, additional plumbed in 1800lbs of ballast, fresh air exhaust and wetsound speakers. My question being is do boats appreciate with such upgrades beyond book? I know in a car putting additional motor upgrades or accessories may add a tiny bit of value, but nothing significant or way over book. They are roughly 7k over book at high retail and wanna make a good decision. Any insight is much appreciated! Cheers!
So I’m looking to buy my first boat. Have had Jet Skis for years and feel my growing family would get more out of a boat now. I have been looking at what is in my price range so 2012-2016 LSV or MXZ. Probably a 23 or 24’ model. I’ve seen there are different engine sizes (350, 409, Corvette, Ford Raptor 6.7 and a Cadillac Super charged engine). Any advice on what years were best? What to keep away from? I’ll be out on the water with the Wife, 2 daughters, and our Lab. Thanks in advance for the input. I want to make a informed and smart decision since I’ll be keeping this boat for years.
