    Very nice! I like it.
    The pictures are a nice touch.

    To confirm;
    The Virage TX (carb models) were only 2000-2002?
    No carb TX in 2003, 2004?

    The Genesis carb versions also ended in '02?

    Why don't you give us what you are budgeting for these skiis and that might narrow down the field a bit to what you might really want to expect for your money.
    Well, I would like to keep the total under or near $10K, for 2 boats plus trailer.
    More important, though, is that I want to be happy with my choices for a few years.
    From a self-maintenance and ease of servicing perspective, I want to stay with carburation.

    At this moment, I am thinking a Virage TX, plus either a Genesis or 2 seater, depending on how "big" the Virage feels.
    I have never sat on one, so the Virage TX may be OK as the "smaller" boat, with the Genesis as the "bigger" one. I have heard the Virage described as a "2 1/2 seater".

    Or if the Virage TX is really "big enough" for 3, then a 2 seater could be paired with it.

    What I really want is three boats, but then funding and trailer considerations come into play

    I am sure there are errors but I pulled the model info from here.

    As far as the Matrix goes, I agree, I would add a section for commom upgrades (ie triple outlet fuel pump on older models) and a section for performance mods. It's gonna take a lot of work, I will need everybodys help.

    Just wanted to clarify...the "limited" 99 model you are refering to is the X-45 or also known as the SLTX-B model (has the 1200 engine). However, this model is NOT a limited edition, it is an "Anniversary" edition and there were a couple thousand made...contrary to what has become stated in public circles. A "limited" edition would be something that only had a few hundred made, was made for a very short period of time and is unique only to itself. The X-45 was really nothing special onto itself as all of it's components were used in other watercraft and is easy to duplicate by mix-matching other Polaris watercraft.
