Fi 25 on the way

Recommended Posts

h20king    791

Well we listed or fi 23 for sale at the end of September thinking we would get to use it for a while before it went to a new home. Well to our surprise it sold in five days.  Went to our dealer yesterday and placed our order for the fi25. We went to the wake 9 polar bear last weekend and surfed one and allI can say is WOW. The fi 25 is on a different level. Super excited for this boat.

Looking forward to seeing your build! We decided to keep the stereo stock and just try to flip it every year...

We flip every year but do our own stereo.  For example the factory system is 8k and we just bought our wetsounds systems from one of the members for $4400 and shadow caster LEDs for $700. It costs me less,sounds better and adds at least the same value as stock but helps set our boat apart come time to sell.

I totally agree for us buyers! It came down to time and availability/cost of parts in canada. 

The factory system retails for 8k , It works out to be more like 6K ...

The Roswell Downfire system has improved and sounds pretty decent,  It comes down to time for installing vs surf time... I should have ordered the boat earlier and built the stereo..but its nice to have it all nice and neat with warranty. 

Do you have anywhere on site where you have your stereo build?

So someone who:

  1. Adds to the traffic of the site
  2. helps others 
  3. promotes the Centurion brand

 

is forced to commit money or he cannot post pictures?  I get that site and hosting aren't free but doesn't that seems backwards...

All black with silver flake. The factory did a custom flake swim deck for us as well so the swim deck does not blend in.

Should bring it home Friday if it's not raining. My dealer NWBS installed  our shadowcaster transom lights so just need to do the stereo then we are ready to go.

Our local dealer had a Fi23 all black with silver flake last year. It looked fantastic. Hope you’ll post a link to some pics once you get it home????

Lol, I can see all sides of this. I’d say forums are getting outdated these days due to all social media .

Be great to hear some ideas on how to fund the site.

interestingly I've tried to re-up several times and it will not let me. Messages to admin do not get a reply. I can't post pics either but not for a lack of trying.

All the years I’ve been on the sight I’ve NEVER had that problem. It’s interesting as when I joined people preached and prayed for members to “pay there dues” now days it feels we’re seeing a lack of admin presence. As Jake mentioned “us non Facebook users are left in the dust.” 

I don’t blame that on admin but feel by us “non Facebook users” were leaving ourselves in the dust by not taking advantage of free bandwidth. 

 

To each there own. I choose to support the sight and use my wife’s Facebook to see what’s happening outside of it. JMTC

To Admin's credit I just got an invoice for the site which I promptly paid. This site has been a great resource. I'd like to see both the Facebook area and this area get a lot of traffic.
