  3. I have a a plate for sale that was on my enzo for a year. It is in excellent condition and was professionally made by a fabrication business
  4. Yesterday
  5. I though that was a possibility, but I don’t think so. I pulled them off and ran them while connected directly to a battery fully submerged (Switchblade said to do this to check if computer was bad) they work fine. Not sure if it’s the weight of the actual blade itself or what. Appreciate the response, whatever I get from you guys is a lot better than anything I’ve heard from Switchblade Wake. Don’t think they have anyone on staff that even understands what this thing even does.
  6. Our 2008 Enzo has been sold. All the best, Hein
  7. Thanks guys. I’m in Quebec , Canada and looking into the shipping costs from the States. Maybe some more local boats will be up for sale closer to the season. Still lots of snow around and the mindset for boating just isn’t there yet. Ill keep updating. Chis
  8. Have you checked to see if water is getting into the actuator when in the water? just spitballing ideas, i haven't had the opportunity to work on any yet so i may be replying for no good reason. I'm assuming it has a motor/gearbox that drives a acme shaft?
  9. Finally got the time to sit down and do a more detailed write up. Myself and a friend installed the SV version of these InfinityWave surf tabs on my 2014 Centurion SV244, we installed the tabs one evening and then I ran and finished the wiring a couple nights later on 04/13. Since the weather was crappy that weekend, my first LAKE TEST was on the evening of 04/17/2019. I can honestly say that my expectations were exceeded and after only 2-3mins, I had found the right deployment angle to make an excellent surf wave on the regular side. We only had a couple hours and myself and 2 buddies spent it surfing. I totally forgot to see what goofy wave looked like or get any pics or video without a surfer on the wave. I will do that next time out and post up more information. Initial reaction when getting the InfinityWave tab system….they look and feel very well made, its a beefy system and the finish is very nice. I love the fins on the bottom of the tabs since one thing that concerned me putting tabs on an SV244, is I knew that the factory Quicksurf tabs that were installed on the 2015/2016 models where not up to par and most owners I talked to or heard about preferred to still list the boat for the surf wave since they did not feel like the wave using the tabs had enough push/power. I believe with a deep V boat, the hull wants to direct the water outwards, not back toward the surf wave, so without the fins on the bottom of the tab which help direct the water coming off the bottom of the hull toward the surf wave, you don’t get surf wave that feels like it has power. I have Ramfill on my boat and since its important for the tabs to be up as far as possible under swim platform when retracted, the best position I found puts the actuator bracket mount behind the Ramfill tanks….so rather than run the actuator wire thru the hole in the bracket, I drilled/chamfered a hole for the wire approx. 3.5” toward the center of the boat & 3.5” higher than the bracket position so I could avoid the Ramfill tanks and get access to the wire. Actuator wire is 5/16” diameter, so I drilled a 3/8” hole (starting with smaller bit and running in reverse till well thru gelcoat), after the 3/8” hole was drilled I then got another drill bit slightly larger and ran it in reverse to chamfer the hole so I could avoid spider cracking and remove sharp edges due to wire running thru that (most people will not run into this and can run the wire thru the extra hole in the actuator bracket). Then I ran the wires thru hull and sealed the holes on both inside/outside of the hull. I then ran and zip tied all the electrical up to the bottom of the top deck along the outer perimeter and ran everything up to the drivers helm carefully concealing the wires and securing them with zip ties. For now, I am just fabricating a temp bracket to mount the switches below the steering wheel for easy access. My Ballast setup on this boat: Ramfill = 1,250 each side for total of 2500lbs. PnP bags in each rear locker at 700lbs each for total of 1400lbs. PnP bag under bow seats is 500lbs. Then I also have 500lbs of lead bags, I place 300lbs under the bow filler cushion and the other 200 lbs to the left of drivers feet on the floor against the built-in cooler. I fill the Ramfill tanks to 100% on both sides and then I DRAIN off the non-surf side Ramfill to 80% to give a slight list to boat. So basically 1250 Ramfill on surf side and 1000 Ramfill on non-surf side which gives a total of 4,650lbs of ballast. In video’s I posted links too above were taken on 04/17, total of 3 guys on boat including the surfer. Speed is 11mph and center trim tab is at 40%. PCM ZR409 engine at 800ft elevation and my rpm was at 3,150. Previously I ran the same ballast set up but used Nauticurl suck gate and with all things the same, my rpm was at 3,400, so using these InfinityWave surf tabs brought the rpm’s down for sure. Love that since its easier on the engine and I will save a little gas money to boot. Extremely happy with my purchase and wanted to post my experience since I know others are looking at these tabs and probably have similar initial hesitation like I did since these tabs are fairly new to market. Combine the performance of these tabs which I can now experience behind my boat with the great price and customer service and you have a winner!
  10. Last week
  11. I hate to keep rambling about this thing, but I got on the water today with the new Switchblade Wake Co. bypass switch. Let’s the system work without the Lenco computer. It’s kinda low tech, but OK (my 14yr old could make a better wiring diagram). It has four wires, power, ground and two for the Lenco actuators. It tested OK out of the water, but it consistently blows the 30amp fuse in the water. As soon as there is a load (water) on this thing it blows the fuse. Awesome, can’t wait to get this thing off my boat. It’s almost heavy enough to be an OK anchor.
  12. It's great that you are happy with your tabs. I worked hard on the design with a lot of prototypes.
  13. Right on Surf. Sounds like a good deal. Not sure how these compare to the GSA, both are the same concepts right, but 2k vs 4k sounds a lot better for sure haha
  14. when swimming or loading in the boat could he not put the tabs down to get them out of the way of people climbing back into the boat?
  15. Well glad to hear you got great results. I wasn't able to get any of the videos to load but thanks a ton for the feedback. Looks like something I might have to look into
  16. I had the same problem when my switchblade quit it ended up being the computer which is discontinued
  17. It’s a bad deal. Actuators are proprietary and Lenco will not work with you on replacements. It’s a Switchblade Wake company problem. The sucky part is the gen 1’s are not compatible with gen 2 or gen 3 so the whole thing is completely unsupported by the company (Switchblade Wake). If that wasn’t enough the Switchblade computers are unavailable as well (also haves a Lenco sticker on it) and yes, there are gen1, gen2 and gen3 versions. Switchblade sells a bypass switch and does away with the need for a computer, but now I’ve got 3 holes in my dash to deal with, awesome. On a semi happy note, I bought lenco motors off Ebay and rebuilt the actuators for about 100.00 so for now it works, but when it fails and it will fail I’m ripping it out. Without any support from the manufacturer I would stay away from these guys. What absolutely suuucks, is Before I bought this boat i called them and checked on support for it and was told parts are,always available. It’s just not true. Sorry to ramble, but I have never seem a 5k+ system that is completely unsupported by the manufacture and with no upgrade path or some kind of parts pool or anything. It’s not a shock that these things aren’t on everything.
  18. Well brought the Boat to the Boat Doc today and he showed me that I also bent the Ruttier. Has this ever happen to anyone else. I have no idea what that going to cost
  19. Everything looks great and glad your happy with it @InfinitySurf!!! i gotta say your post has me tempted but since I’d have to fill all my ballast and not have any other storage, I’ll stick with listing my boat.... for now.
  20. I WAS using a Nauticurl suck gate.....these surf tabs replaced the suck gate, so the Nauticurl will now be sold since I have no need for it any longer. Yay!! Surf tabs are much more convenient, have more uses that just for surfing (clean up wave for wakeboarding, jump on plane quickly if you have ballast loaded and wanna go to another cove, etc), lower the rpm's while surfing which is easier on my engine long term as well as lower fuel usage (since a suck gate creates a lot of side drag). They also look great and add value to my boat so when the time comes to sell, I am sure that my boat will be in high demand since it will be a turnkey system ready to go. I will say tho that I have zero intention of selling since adding these surf tabs literally gave me every option that the newest boats have. It may have been my only excuse before to upgrade and blow a serious amount of money....so it also allowed me to easily convince the wife to spend $2k on these tabs, compared to selling the boat and then having to stack another $50k on top of that to get a boat that is 5yrs newer. No way I would have done that anyway cause I have been perfectly happy with my ride and I don't make enough money to spend it like that. Now tho, I literally couldnt come up with an excuse if I wanted too. Frankly, I have been considering adding GSA for the last 2 years but could not bring myself to spend $4k for them....not to mention I have heard mixed reviews on how effective GSA is on the deep V boats. But to spend only $2k....and on tabs that were designed SPECIFICALLY for the Deep-V hull, I was all in on making that happen! You are right, the tabs do stick out the sides of the platform some as the pics show, however its worth mentioning that this will not be the case for everyone since my boat has a smaller swim platform called the "surf sized" platform so it does not interfere with or cut into the surf wave. I will just make sure kids on my boat are aware of the tabs and keep my eye on them when swimming or jumping off the back to be sure they jump out, rather than to the side. All these boats have some potential for danger tho and I already have the center trim tab and FAE sticking out, luckily never had any issues there I don't think mine is much different than the new boats with the trim tabs and we get onto the platform from the rear anyway when getting out of the water. Have you seen the GSA surf tabs? Those are quite long and all my friends that have GSA have those tabs sticking out past the end of the swim platform, these come off the side some since my swim platform is not as wide as some, but do not stick out past the back at all and to me, its more likely to be an issue if they extended past the end of the platform rather than sides. I don't personally know anyone that has been injured, tho I am sure it happens occasionally.
  21. no FB for me so cant see the videos but looks good. My only concern would be someone jumping off the side of the swim deck. Looks like those fins go quite a bit out from the edge of the swim platform? Also you use these tabs instead of a suckgate on the side? Or in addition? I have no idea how these work haha
  22. thinking about it, really want a 23' but don't want a payment either so that leaves me with the 230s and not the 233 or 244s with the cabin forward design like Id prefer. So I keep going back and forth, if the cabin on the 230 is almost the same as the Elite or Avy just a longer bow it wouldn't be much of a noticeable upgrade space wise. Only use the bow for kids or when floating.
  23. Couple pics surfing the wave yesterday evening....more pics and details to come as soon as I have time to put it all together. Also gonna get pics/video of only the wave next time to show the shape/form. If you are on the fence about getting these surf tabs from InfinityWave @Shaka, its a no brainer at the price they are selling them for. Results could not be better in my opinion and I have high expectations when it comes to anything on my boat! Honestly, I was nervous about this initially since I knew the factory QS tabs where not too great on the 2015/2016 SV models. The shape of these tabs along with the fins under them to "direct" the water coming off bottom of the boat toward the wave to give you maximm push....works perfect and it seems that the lack of fins properly directing the water flow toward the surf wave was the flaw in the factory tabs. A deep-V hull is directing the water out, not at the wave and my best guess is that was why the factory tabs did not deliver results that owners were expecting and why many of the SV owners with the factory tabs list boat instead of using the tabs. These InfinityWave surf tabs certainly addressed tho issues.
  24. Few pics on what the InfinityWave surf tabs look like on the boat
  25. I gotta say, I am STOKED about how good these InfinityWave surf tabs performed and how good they look on the boat! The first lake test yesterday went flawless and I could not be happier with my decision to pull the trigger on these! Easy to dial (took less than 3mins adjusting the tabs to find perfect surf wave). Takes very little deployment angle. Using the same ballast setup I was using before when running the Nauticurl suck gate. The rpm's dropped over 200rpm compared to using the suck gate and speed was 11mph instead of 10.8! With center tab at 40% (see below FB video), rpm's are running at 3150. Taking the center tab to 0% to make the surf wave the biggest possible, rpm was 3400. With the Nauticurl and speed at 10.8, rpm's were running 3400-3450 at 40% and 3650+ when taking trim tab to 0%. Soon, I will be posting a much more detailed review and writeup on the InfinityWave tabs. In meantime, Here is a link to the Centurion/Supreme Facebook page that one of my buddies on the boat took and posted to show 2) video's riding the wave and some pictures!

  27. Zs232 opinions

    We are very happy with our ZS so far. Went to the boat show in Orlando and spent hours going back and forth to all the different manufacturers and ended up in the ZS. As h20king said above it in no way feels like a budget boat.
  28. Let's See Your Rides

    Took delivery of our ZS232 a couple weeks ago.
