    family ski that can do offshore fishing. stx15f or ultra lx or vxr

    only ridden a ski for a couple of days 5 years ago and wanting to buy a new ski for the family but confused if i need all the extra features the yamaha offers (electric trim, cruise control etc). the stx is cheapest here and next is ultra lx @ $2500 more, then yamaha another extra $1500. would really like a fxho like my brothers but again another $2000 on top of vxr.
    primary use will be lakes/rivers for skiing/biscuit/cruising but want to be able to go out through river mouth and bar to go ocean fishing. money is obvious concern as want to rig it out with gps/fish finder and cooler box/rod holder, warm gear etc as want to fish all seasons. advice greatly appreciated.

    I rode while on vacation in Florida a few years ago. Then I bought brand new because of my lack of mechanical abilities. That was the wrong move. I made a lot of rookie mistakes and ended up with lots of nicks and scratches that I shouldn't have.

    So, I recommend buying used as a "learning" ski and then when you get some experience go ahead and get the new stuff.

    Ultra Lx will be the most stable for sure and take the rough water.
