  1. Island Lake Marine (out of Fort Collins, CO) is expanding and opening a dealership in the Las Vegas area this year. They brought a couple boats down and offered some demo rides a couple weeks ago here at Lake Mead. So we will have a dealership within 60-90 minutes of our house now.

  3. Thank you. Yes, we are in Logandale. Lake Mead (Echo Bay) is our home lake, with a couple trips to Powell each year. I’m sure hoping the touch screens are reliable. We will also spec the boat with a 16x13 prop since low-end power is far more important to me than top speed. The demo Fi23 had the 16x13 prop and it acted like it was zero effort to get out of the hole, but that was with just 3 adults in the boat. I find it interesting that PCM was the first direct injection manufacturer and I have seen several used 2016-2017 Ri237’s with the H6 engine. But most all the 2018-2021’s have the HO450. I’m kind of surprised that PCM even offers both options. I am really only familiar with the Malibu/Axis line, but they have pretty much migrated to just the direct injected M5/M6 engines (plus the supercharged ones for the big boys). I’m surprised for just economy of scale that PCM hasn’t done the same? There must be something I don’t know...
  4. Thanks Troy. Good to know. Are you running a 16x15 or a 16x13 prop?
  5. Hi all- new to the Centurion world. Currently have a 2014 Axis A24 with 450hp LS3. Demo’ed an Fi23 recently and really liked it. But after sitting in an Ri237 I feel like it is worth the price increase. Ri245 is unfortunately out of my range. In the Malibu world, there have been a fair number of issues with touchscreen reliability over the last few years. How have the Centurion screens been holding up? We plan to keep this boat forever, so eventual out-of-warranty reliability is important. Also, the 6.0 450 was rocket-like powerful in the Fi23- is it still plenty powerful enough in the Ri237? We boat anywhere from 1000’ to 3600’ elevation. I know the Ri should only be about 500-600 pounds heavier when fully ballasted. Any other common issues over the last couple years in the Centurion boats?
