Crossover capability of the 2018 BoatsC

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Here is a video we put together showing wakeboarding, wakesurfing and water skiing behind the same boat in one take with no edits, cuts or anything else. If you want to see what the stock setup of the new 2018 boats looks like for all 3 sports this will give you a solid idea.

Hope you like it!

I like the versatility but I would have rather seen the regular side surf wave.  I don't ski or wakeboard anymore so not as appealing to me

I wake skated behind my RI257...wake wasn't cleaned up since my wife doesn't know how to do that.  I was curious just to see if I could get up.

Very nice, thanks for posting that video and hoping to see the new FI this week that my dealer just got in...wasn't unwrapped when I went by there on Weds. Also demo an RI237 tomorrow for first time.

Awesome video. What were the speeds for all 3 sports? Can you tell me if this boat will throw a clean beginner  wakeboard wake from around 17 to 19? 

My 238 is washed out on one side or the other with speed under 22.5. Just too fast for beginners.

If you have CATS you can create clean wake one side at a time at 17 MPH even in 257.  To change clean side as rider crosses is very fast just a couple seconds.  I was don't this at wake the world this weekend.

Ski Speed - 34 mph

Wakeboard Speed - 22.5 mph

Surf Speed - 11.0 mph

The Fi23 and Ri237 has a clean beginner wakeboard wake at 18mph w/ zero ballast (great shape too!). If you add more ballast you just need to speed up a bit to clean it up but with Ramfill full the wakeboard wake is clean at 20-21mph, maybe slower - I haven't played around with the speed when the boat is loaded up.

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
