While I was in between boats I considered a few Yamahas for an all around family application. I did like the layout and it was pretty roomy for its size. The upside of the 212X is that it has the...

I miss the days when I bought my 2000 prostar 205V for 28K OTD. Hard to see something starting at 71K as a budget boat.

Never say never (boat comparison)

I've always been pretty decisive about my boat purchases and never thought I'd ask for a boat comparison. Soooooo.....I'd appreciate some outside perspective on two boats.

Also sold my last boat with 680hrs. Zero problems and the compression check was within 5% of OEM. Also have a friend with a black scorpion over 1200 hours and still runs perfectly.
