Voyager as a Ski Boat?

I was wondering if you thought the Voyager would double as an OK water-ski boat?  I am in the process of selling my Malibu Response tournament ski boat, which is very one-dimensional.  I thought the Voyager would make a good all-around boat.  I would power it with a large 4 stroke like a Honda 225 or Yamaha 250.  Your thoughts?

 

Smith, 

The Voyager is an excellent water ski boat. Just keep those "big-heavy" motors on the transom and put a nice 4 blade bass boat prop on them. Those motors put on a jack plate, set off the transom and would kill the boat "ski ability".
