Vortex 203 purchasing, Water Skiing and Power

Recommended Posts

Hello all, looking for some information before we pull the trigger.

Wife and I grew up boating and are looking at a 19 Vortex 203 VRX leftover. It has the 300HP Rotax, and was curious on if anyone felt a power lag. Growing up a boat we had was a Baja jet, and although things can obviously change over the years, it almost had an acceleration power lag. It will be primarily used for wakeboarding, tubing, and skiing. We have young kids so I am not worried about it having enough power for them, but what about me? I am 6'0, 200lbs and although the dealer is saying it should have no problem pulling me, I am cautious. I know it won't pull like the Mastercrafts do, but will I still be able to slice without having to use arm strength to compensate for boat power. 

Anyone have any regrets with it? Anyone care on sharing the deals they were able to make on one?
