I want/need a boat. Looking for an all around fun family fawk around boat. Thinking of a 19' open bow maxum or something to that effect. I want to be able to drag the kids around on tubes, ski, wakeboard etc... Primarily for lake use, maybe see a little time in the sound on calm sunny days. 19' big enough? Lots of what I am finding are 3.0 ltr. I would prefer a v6 or even a v8. More horsepower the better. The 3.0 liter is only around 130-135 hp. Also kicking around the idea of getting something bigger that I can still drag the kids around with but that is also a little more sea worthy so we can do a little island hopping up here. I want something a couple years old (I don't buy anything new, let some other schmo take the hit) but not older then a 95 at the most. You guys that own boats, what do you have and what should you have gotten or what do you like about what you have. Looking to do this in the next couple weeks if I can find one I like that's not over priced (peak season and all).
