If you guys had the choise between a 21ft Libirator and a Youngblood TX19 in the about the some shape (project) for about the same money to buy it what is the better hull. I want to go fast dont need to go 100 but 80 to 90 would be cool. And I have a wife and 2 little kids.

Boat with friends first.

If you have friends with "like" boats, take the family to the lake and get their impression. Or you'll be selling your project at a loss!

Prob be way easier and cheaper to meet your goals with the tx, as the lib will prob have a flat keel being set up for o/b. TXs are quick, dont require a ton of power to be fun, and pretty roomy for a 19'. Just my opinion:)hand

Despite owning a 19' GW myself, I was going to vote for the Liberator. That was before I saw the conversion from OB to jet thing.

I think you'd be better off with the 19 GW. Good amount of room, good handling, good speed with moderate power. Good family boat IMHO

I'd go for the TX if it were me. Seems like its going to have more interior room by the time you get that Lib converted over to a jet. Besides that, you are looking at God only knows how long that project would even take, depending on where you take it. ;)

Look at Richard with his TX for example.. He can load the cooler & take the wife & kids cruising, pull his daughter if she wants to ski, or go bust off a triple digit pass right quick... Like Buckwheat used to say, its as easy as that, O' tay! :p

I was gonna say the Liberator until you said it had an eggbeater on the back. The TX19 seems to be the best bet IMO.

I love my 21 daytona. I wouldn't let the wackka scare you off as long as it's not a flat keeled boat. Just my .02 Btw my boat was born a 1/2 wacker(IO).

Tunnels take up a lot of room and they do have room 21' IMO. I like a Lib. but a TX is replacing my V bottom sometime next season!:D Good luck with your choice! WT:)devil

The Liberator will ride a little better, but the TX-19 will actually have more usable room in it for family boating. The tunnels take so much out of the boats for interior room. I'd stay away from the OB/Jet conversion. The floor of a whacker will have to be reinforced for a jet becuse they are built heavy in the transom instead of the floor where the jet pushes from.
