  1. Not sure if it helps, but for my 280ssi I looked online for every pic I could find of one on a trailer. I still had to make some adjustments to the front bunks in the water but was pleased with the back bunk placement and balance.
  2. Rjbergen’s list is an excellent outline. It also depends on your mechanical skills. My previous 4 boats were older under 21’ bow riders. Pretty easy to inspect myself. On our 280SSi for peace of mind we had a trusted dealership to handle the transaction. They did the paperwork, held the deposit contingent on survey, test ride and finance. I paid for the survey, previous owner paid for the minor things noted and dealership fee. When you look at the cost and complexity of engines, water systems, electronics, etc. unless I was 100% sure I’d walk away without the survey.
  3. Send a pm if you’d like and I can give you my email. I watch it more than here and am glad to help a fellow boater. If you’re looking for a beautiful lake Table Rock is hard to beat.
  4. We’ve boated Table Rock for over 15 years. In that time it has become one of the top lakes in the US. I’d be glad to answer any questions I can. We like the area enough that we’ve kept an rv near Kimberling for 6 years and recently my wife took a position managing a resort. Hopefully some day we will retire there.
