  1. 2005 Avy Surf Wake help

    @TroyThanks man! I had her in the water once and went to pressure test the ballast system, and the ball valve for the thru hull spit out a chunk of metal (previous owner hadn't used the ballast in years and was the only part I didn't replace, smh). So closed it off went for a cruise and the shaft on the water pump walked out on me. swapping out both of those tonight, hoping to get that girl leaned over this weekend!

    @TroyI also need to say the bag has been spoken for by another member of this page. I got a replacement boat with the insurance money from the one that sunk that needed a total restoration and this guys been a lot of help showing me what he's done with his boat and gave me enough info to decide which way I wanted to go with mine.

    Hey Troy, I'm in Chattanooga, TN
  4. 2005 Avy Surf Wake help

    Totally agree, list that girl, put her on her side and ride here, LOL! I had a 2002 Avy that I had put over 800 hours on listing, Wave was amazing for a boat that age... All until the dreaded day in September last year where I went outside to see just the nose of her sticking up in my slip. She sunk, it was gut wrenching... 2020 can suck by big toe. All that being said I have a custom fat sac from her I had on the port side, I stole measurements from Duffy or Big cat back in 2012 and surfed amazing with only 1 other person in the boat that I'm not using. It did get a pin hole in the bag from a screw being loose and under it and rubbing. Anyone know how to patch these type of bags? If so I'd give it away for the shipping and a case of beer. I had reversible pumps so it only has a port in the back bottom to fill and empty and one on top for the vent/overfill port. Let me know if your interested. You will love that wave!
  5. Budget Ballast System

    Awesome, thanks! Do you have any pics of the surf wave the typhoon throws? I had over 800 hours of surf time on my Avy that was dialed in and loved that wave, woke up one morning this September to find just the nose sticking out of the water at my dock (insert heartbreak Gif) . I've had a hard time finding a pic or video of an 07 typhoon wave but found a killer deal and pulled the trigger. Seeing that it's a stretched out Avy hull, I'm hoping its comparable.
  6. Budget Ballast System

    Hey Guys, Long time forum comber first time posting. Not trying to hijack this thread but had a questions that relates to this thread: as I'm redoing my ballast system on a 2007 Typhoon I just picked up thanks to all the great advice on this site, I'll be updating my manifold to a 1 inch, and replacing the sprinkler valves with 12V Ball valves. My questions is in regards to the aerator pumps for draining. When going to custom bags of 1600 lbs or more, there will be a lot more head pressure on the pumps then the smaller stock ballast would produce. Do I need to worry about that pushing water out the drain port or am I over thinking it?
