Jelly of the month club sounds nice Eric. Unfortunatley you have to be home occasionally to greet the delivery man. :-)

My point could be summed up with the word "continually" in my first post.

Aside from the tower and dash it's not a bad looking boat IMO.

I don't see how anyone can call this ugly. The exterior lines and interior styling look similar to what everyone else is doing....

Essentially they're all powered by comparable power plants so the fuel usage shouldn't vary that much. Question.....are your kids going to get bigger or stay the same size/ age?

Bought it 2 years ago for 29K and sold it for 34,900.

Don't get too deep into resale value comparisons of bigger name brands. It's all about the condition of the boat, the current market, and the...

John the cost of the replacement tower is the least concerning. You'll have to find one that fits in the original mounts or pay someone to fill the old holes. Hopefully I didn't turn you off of the...

The easiest way is to do a yahoo search for Calabria pro-v's and look at the pictures. The metcraft is the only one where the back supports of the tower lean forward.

I don't expect money when I take people out riding, much like I don't expect to pay for dinner and drinks when I get invited over to their houses.

Yeah it appears that it wasn't called a Pro-V until 2002. I would bet it's still the same hull length as all the rest....21ft. All the Pro-V's are 21ft but are listed as 23 because the include the...

I've seen pictures of Billy's 02 and it has a different tower than the metcraft so it may not be an issue. If it has a tube style tower that tilts slightly forward those are the garbage ones.

I have an 07 Calabria and love it but I probably wouldn't go back as far as an 01. I believe they have the metcraft towers that were garbage and tend to break. I don't think the upholstery is as...

Yeah I have some pictures that show some wake but they would discourage you in comparison for wake boarding. I ride a hydrofoil at 25mph with no weight usually so the wake is small in the pictures....

You could also go with a Calabria Cal-Air. 87inch beam plus below floor ballast so it has lots of storage for a small boat.
