How old are your kids? I was in same boat, i wanted a baja outlaw, but wife wanted a bow rider for kids, so we got the islander. it was a great boat, we loved it. but after first summer, wife wanted something w/ a vbirth to get the kids out of sun (daughter was 2 at time). so while she thought the bowrider would be a better fit, being in boats w/ a vbirth allowed them to take naps & watch movies in more comfort. we sold the islander in nov & now lookin for something in the 33+ range.
