I see you have the Go Surf assist installed on your 2008 Enzo SV230. I am about to do the same thing on my 2007 Enzo SV240. Do you happen to have some photos of the install taken from the transom? And how did you notch out the spacers for the bump out in the swim platform bracket?
Thank you for the information BigCat. That is pretty closed to my measurements. Yours is slightly bigger than what I had but it should fit just fine. I would like to hear your measurements for the starboard side Troy or Bigcat. Thanks again
Big Cat and Troy,
Thanks for the replies. I appreciate the first hand knowledge on the ZS line Troy. I agree about the differences not being too significant. I also agree about lead. I’m not a big fan either. Really, for all of the reasons you mentioned. I had a Moomba before (direct drive) and it was a great boat while we had it. Which is why I was looking into them. Main thing that got me on the Centurion/Supreme brands were that from what I had read they didn’t require lead or weight inside the boat. I’m okay with upgrading a plug and play but I know there are times when the boat needs more and a bag is in the seating area. I definitely did not want this. I know the Mojo’s I sent did have upgraded bags. I guess right now I’m trying to decide if we want to take out a loan (likely small, around or less than $30k), or pay cash and have the boat free and clear. I think it’s more likely we pay cash. Simply because I hate having payments on things.
But it is fun to look at more expensive stuff. Although I know this can also be a trap as well. I showed my wife (who is not too familiar with boats) a 2021 Ri265 the other day without her seeing the price. She was like that is way nice, lets get it. I told her the price and that changed for a bit. Then she came back later and asked what payments would be. I said we will not be getting a $215k boat or anything close to that price range. But I appreciate her even thinking about it. It just reminds me that she just wants something that is going to be best for our family.
Anyway, thanks again guys.
Its the engine compartment blower 4" flexible black pipe on the starboard side and on the port side its the same type of pipe that is just open into the engine bay. Not really sure where it even comes from. I will have to look when I get home. I think it goes to the battery compartment. I could probably just move it or shorten it up to get out of the way.
The sideswipe is a deal breaker for me. WAY too loud! And the pipes run right through the side locker taking up valuable ballast space.
If you want to do the mod and convert to FAE then it would not matter. Its only money. LOL
That FS44 was a pretty decent price for the options and hours...... but that black top rail would be a no go for me. Way too hot to step on or rest your forearm on. But it sold anyway.
All of those ZS look great. Troy will be a better source for info on those.
Best of luck in your search. Keep looking til you find what you want.....its out there.
Troy great first hand info on the ZS! Sounds like a great boat!
You mentioned the CATS for cleaning up the goofy wave on the 244. It is a game changer combined with the asymmetrical trim tab. Without those the goofy wave would be terrible. With it the wave is really good. Not quite as good as the port side....but still very good.
