    Hi All,
    New to CSR and looking for input from the community for guidance on considerations re the above boats, both with less than 200 hrs and asking similar prices. The SLX has the 495 :) but not the Cosra exhaust :(, a fridge and generally sportier but 5 years older. The SDX is 5 years newer has the more practical layout, but has the 350MAG which I am concerns may be underpowered for costal day cruising with 6-8 people if we want to tube, wake and waterski after lunch.

    If there are any dealers that can contact me with soldboat data for each that would be a big help to understand what I should expect to pay and which one is the better deal.

    Also if anyone has the 2010 MSRP and dealer invoice prices for the 270SLX that would be helpful to assess the fair depreciated value.

    Last question is when members talk about a general rule of thumb of 10% of price new in depreciation/yr for the first five years (i.e. boat is 50% of new after year 5) and then 5%/yr for the next 10 years (i.e. boat is 25% of new after 10 years), is that generally based on MSRP or what someone paid new (understand typical deal is 10-20% off MSRP for new SR this size).

    Thanks, hope to get a deal done before spring 2019
