Recommended Posts

We talked about this in the "Older Centurion" thread.  

Do you have a Tru-Trac or a Falcon?  If yes, post a pic or multiple pics of it here.  Have a good work around or modification, post it here.  Questions?  Post them here.

I have some old brochures, I'll post them up this evening.

Here's a pic of my 1993 open bow Falcon.

It should be a 1 inch shaft for diameter and I believe that goes with 1/4" stuffing.  I just bought some about a year ago.  I think I have some left, but I'm pretty sure it's not labeled.  I just called a local dealer (Supra) and told the parts guy I needed stuffing for a 1 inch shaft and he said, I have what you need.  I went there and picked it 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?

      Actually it has me thinking of adding something between the seat and fiberglass riser. It may even allow it to rotate?  Hmmmm

      I have been told you are the expert in setting up the S238 for a great wave. We have a 2106 s238 with the surf package, our dealer told us to fill up the boat and then use the tabs, but we have figured out the more tab we put in it the less push the wave has.
      How do we best set it up for the best wave with push? We surf regular, our friend surfs goofy and her side seems to always be great, but the regular side not so much.
      Would love to have your set up and any tips you could give. Thanks so much
