rodltg2 Posted June 27, 2012 Share Posted June 27, 2012 I am planning on buying a new boat ( at least to me) late fall or next spring . My boat actually has turned out to be fantastic and the best part it's paid for! However like most of us with kids it's just to small for family outings and the low freeboard makes me nervous on public lakes with small kids. I don't have the dilema like some families that want a boat that can perform well skiing and boarding. All I care about is the ski performance. But I do want a boat that can handle public lakes as well as ski lakes.Maybe the occasional Lake Tahoe trip. I'm not so concerned about ride( I can go slow) as much as I am about safety ( water over the front/ swamping). Two boats would be the best bet but I'm no Donald Trump! I think the Malibu LXI (07-11) or the TXI would fit the bill. Any suggestions on which boat will make a better rough water boat? I dont neccesarily need the open bow, how about the Carbon Pro? Before the kids I didn't sweat it ever . I took my 05 LXI in Tahoe without a second thought! For those who are not familar with lake tahoe, its beautiful must see lake that an get really rough without notice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
