  1. Today
  2. Hi all! I’ve been gone for a while since I sold my Avalanche in late 2016. I just bought a new leftover 2019 ZS232 from a dealer in Orlando (I’m in AZ). The Opti-V of the Centurions and the Tapered-V of the Supreme ZS look very similar. Does anyone know the difference? I can’t wait to get that boat here by the way! Shipper picks it up Wednesday should be here Friday!
  3. There is probably a fuse or relay somewhere in line that is also needed. I “doubt” the lights are run purely off the screen’s signal. So trace the wires starting at the screen and see if they trigger a relay anywhere.
  4. I'm Back!

    I finally got the funding sorted out and boat is set to be picked up by shipper Wednesday! The boat is in Orlando and I am in AZ. I was going to go through Boat US for the loan because they were advertising the best rates, but they kept stringing me along only to find out they were taking about a month to fund from Initial application submittal. So, I ended up going with the dealer’s broker and got a good deal plus funded in a matter of days. Another bonus I found out... this boat was previously under contract and the previous buyer wanted the bombshell racks, so those are being thrown in for free!
  5. 2016 S238 Supreme owners manual

    There is this general owner/operator manual on Supreme’s website: https://supremetowboats.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Supreme_owners_manual.pdf
  6. I did all this and get no light. Any thoughts out there?
  7. More potential information here, in this thread. Including guys who have mid 80s Tru Tracs. If that's what this boat is, they could probably help with a true prop shaft measurement. Also here's a link to WaterSki magazine, but this is the oldest one we could find. it's for 1987. https://books.google.com/books?id=8B02AQAAMAAJ&lpg=PA6&dq=1987 Water Ski boat buyers guide&pg=RA1-PA47#v=onepage&q=1987 Water Ski boat buyers guide&f=false
  8. The last two digits of the HIN number will tell you the year that the boat was manufactured. If your boat is actually a 1985 model, you should be able to determine what model it is by matching it up to the model specs located here on the NADA website. https://www.nadaguides.com/Boats/1985/Centurion-Boats Is it really a V-Drive? as opposed to a direct drive? a DD is a true inboard boat where the engine is pretty much in the center of the boat. Ski Centurion was one of the first to make a V-Drive, but they were pretty rare back then. V-Drives didn't become all the rage until way later in the late 90s about a decade after your boat. Post up some pictures and we can determine what it is. If it's a Tru Trac or a Concourse - both tournament ski boats, we'll be able to figure the prop shaft thing out. plus prop shafts from other manufactures will fit up. If it's a V-Drive you're probably going to have to fill out the measurement worksheet for Marine Hardware and have them make you a new shaft. I hope this helps.

  10. 2016 S238 Supreme owners manual

    Hello all. I just bought a 2015 Supreme S21. I am looking to track down the owners manual for this year and model of boat. Would appreciate a lead to the .pdf of the owners manual.
  11. You should demo the boat and have extra people or ballast to load it down with so you can see how it does at that elevation. It may be ok with the right prop but you will lose some power at 4000ft and only way to know how it will do is to try out the boat in real life test.
  12. I have a 2000 also cant get the gauge to above 11, everything looks okay bought an optima battery conditioner, both blue tops are up to 13.2 v but gauge is still low, and yes i"m running amps and tower speakers, it seems to drop dramatically when i kick on blower drops to 10-11. nav lights drop it a bit too. I have 2 batteries and selector switch when were surfing i have it to both batteries and floating listening to music i manually switch it to 1?????? I pulled the alternator and took it to a shoo they tested it and said it was fine? Boat starts and runs good, but I don't think its charging correctly any thoughts please share???? Im confused?

  14. Thank you SO much for being the first person to give me some real info. To my knowledge the strut, coupler and prop are usable. From the output coupler on the V-Drive to the outside edge of the stern side of the strut is 42 9/16 inches The previous owner swears it needs a 47” shaft, but I don’t fully trust his judgment based on some things i’ve found with the boat so I wanted someone else to confirm that info. Do you have any info on how I can tell what specific model it is? Can I tell from the HIN? Thanks again for the help
  15. And one on Wakeworld that says replace the paddle wheel sensor http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=710430 I believe this is the sensor https://www.bakesonline.com/paddle-wheel-speedometer-with-lake-temperature-sensor.html?ff=1&fp=203&gclid=Cj0KCQjw6PD3BRDPARIsAN8pHuFYYDWN2nKIIjUB99g6tH_642oS6QQ-B6mJTAH64GvCth72kIsKkhoaAiPyEALw_wcB
  16. Here’s a helpful thread. http://www.centurioncrew.com/index.php?/forums/topic/7969-airmar-triducer-question/
  17. Hi, I hope this helps. Your boat came with a 1" inch diameter prop shaft. Off the top of my head I don't know the exact length needed. It's roughly 42 inches. Do you have a usable strut? Prop? Prop shaft log? Take a look at this catalog from Marine Hardware you'll see what's available. You might call them and they could advise you. http://www.marinehardware.com/downloads/running_gear.pdf Also you can contact Ron Tanis at Skiboatpartsonline.com and he might know what prop shaft you need too. http://skiboatpartsonline.com/Inboard-Ski-Boat-Parts/
  18. I just bought my first boat, I was told it’s a 1985 ski centurion, the motor runs but it does not have a prop shaft and I cannot seem to find out what size it needs, I know almost nothing about boats and I’m from the dirtbike world, where finding the OEM parts you need is as easy as a few clicks. Please any info you can give to point me in the right direction would be appreciated.

  21. Hi all -- new to the forum but glad to find it. We are close to buying 2015 SV233. It has a 343 with high altitude prop. We live at 4000' elevation and wondering if 343 is sufficient? We are recreational wave riders and looking for a good wake boat to enjoy with kids (teens) and friends. Also - don't love the color of the boat and wondering if anyone has experience with doing a custom boat wrap? Tough to find a lot of options for good used boats right now ... this one is in excellent shape and only 215 hours ... but don't want to make a bad decision if the engine is not sufficient for what I need. Would really appreciate any feedback / advice.
  22. 2007 Ski Centurion Comp T5 speedometer not working. Have not been able to locate replacement Airmar Intelligent Tri part # 20-435-01. Can this part be repaired ?
  23. Can you unmount the seat from the bottom (i.e., remove the seat and leave the mount in the boat)? Search these forums for the bulkhead question, back in the 2000's, there were lots of folks doing mods to the area for subs, etc. There should be pictures and discussion on it if you use the search.
  24. I have a 2003 elite V air warrior that no matter what I try I cannot remove the drivers seat the seat doesn’t go far enough back to expose bolts or far enough forward to expose bolts it almost looks like they put it together and then finish the fiberglass work Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I’ve looked through the forums and everyone that I’ve seen on here is different than what I’ve got going on. I hope I’m just dumb and missing something simple which is totally possible. There’s also a foot rest just underneath the dash that comes about 3/4 across the opening for your legs it looks to be molded into the boat my question is can I cut that out without screwing up the structural integrity of the boat because it looks like it’s mold it into the bulkhead. I just can’t see them making a design like this but when I call Centurion directly they are absolutely no help they don’t even have the old schematics on a boat they originally designed and produced. I understand the boat is 17 years old but a situation like this when I go to buy a new boat which is going to happen in 2022 season it’s gonna make me not want to look at centurion even though I like the Ri237. Anyways that’s a conversation for another topic I’m just frustrated at this point I’ll try to get some pictures up shortly. Again any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated
  25. I know there is a dealer in Lakeport called Hillside Powersports and Marine. Travis used to be active on here from there.
