Thanks ya'll,

It is pretty nice, but I have some PO issues to work around. The stereo is wired all sorts of stupid. They used speaker, solid copper and tons of splices. The wiring used to the amp for the tower speakers is well below the required 8 ga, and is speaker wire also....So I am going to rewire the whole stereo and amp system.

Great looking rig, I really like the tower too. Rewiring the stereo should be a pretty easy job, a fun weekend project.

Here's a helpful tip, before you pull the old wiring out (especially inside that tower), tape the new wire to the end then pull it thru, you'll be routing the new at the same time that you remove the old.

You sure thats an '08? I ask because my '08 looks nothing like that, but my buddies '07 185 looks just like that color scheme wise. Unless I'm off :). Either way you will enjoy it. I love the eas of use, maintenance and durability of this little boat.

Shaking my head and rolling my eyes......I agree with you Chip, the build sheet that came with it is a 2008, but the title is a 2007. So there lies the quandary, what year is it? Anyway, here are a couple more pics

The HIN will tell you the model year of the boat. Year built is the last 2 digits

I hate to say it, but we have already outgrown it...But it is a great little boat. We pull double tubes like it's no ones business and it will pop a skier out of the water like he is on springs. It's running a 14.5x19 SS 3 blade, but I would like to go to a Solas 14.25x20 4 blade, just to see if we can get a few more MPH out of it cruising.

I am looking at maybe next season getting into a 19 or 21' with the integrated wake tower.

No, we have had it a little over a month....It is a blast, but I want at least a 9 seater!

I am in the same boat (no pun intended) as you. Our 175 is small for us but the ability to fit in my garage, easily trailered and easy to maintain keeps me in it. Honestly, I would love a Yamaha (I know) but The size brings with it some real logistic issues. So the 175 it is.

Mine is a 2004 and looks identical inside and out apart from the external graphic's. However, I thought the later ones had a curved windscreen, obviously that must have been even later then a 2008.

and I can tow it with a fuel efficient vehicle also useful as my daily driver. A big truck would guzzle twice as much.

195 has a lot more space , still fits in a garage and you can tow it with just about anything

nope, exceeds the 3500lbs max for my Equinox and all the other cross-overs. The 175 also 'just" fits into the garage. The largest would be a 185 but I don't like to argue about what goes into the boat. With the 175 there's around 300lbs left once it's filled with gas and gear.

I have to disagree... Unless your garage is empty and a little larger than average, my 185 with fold tongue barely fits.

Towing a 195 with just about anything also does not ring true for me. When you load up your vehicle and then all the extra gear things get heavy VERY quickly.

If I had an F150 equivalent then maybe I'd change my tune.


I would love a 195 but I passed to buy a 185 for all the above reasons.

Towing through BC highways (mountains) is also another reason.

Mine fits fine with a full sized car sitting next to it. Our garage is an average 2 car for around here, but bigger than what you would find in the inner city. Don't have to fold teh tounge on the trailer. As for needing an F150 - please, we towed ours for 3 years with a Kia Sorrento - a 195 weighs about 3K on the trailer. Behind my Ram its like towing nothing.
