If you’re not doing a ton of water sports the SPS would be fine for a cost saver. I tried for a G series an ESP but the misses insisted on a floor plan only available on the S series. I would of pushed to the 250 if it was available then. We do a decent amount of water sports with our boat and absolutely love it. Depending on where your boating may dictate the extra boyancy but I’m doubtful you’ll be disappointed with an SPS/250. But as Bulldog states... a test drive can make all the difference in the world. PS: we have infloor storage and love it, that being said when I shopped used before our order that option wasn’t a deal breaker.
