  1. S238 tow vehicles

    I don't have a S238 but my 2014 F350 diesel does a great job of towing my 226 through serious mountain passes. It's actually pretty comfortable for a 1ton and gets much better mpg than my GM 6.0 gasser did and has better stopping power. I guess it depends on where you live and tow but I'm glad I opted for the diesel.

  3. October 2017 Pics n video thread

    Cowabunga! Looks like your boy was having fun. I kept waiting for the hang ten.
  4. I need to fully winterize where I live but I still keep a Caframo heater ( Cwazy1's first link) in my engine compartment over the winter. I've only had it one season, but so far so good.
  5. Looks like a great time. Congrats on your new 244!
  6. I don't know if my engine can handle too much more weight. We surf at 4400' and I have the 5.7 engine.
  7. I would suggest adding more detail about surf setup like ballast (bags,pumps,etc) and some pics of your surf wave. You might also consider keeping it. I know it's hard when you've lived close to the water but I have to drive 1.5 hrs. in any direction to suitable water and it's not that big of a deal.
  8. Wipe out pic and videos

    Good save! That could have been hard on both boat and board.
  9. Keep 2014 or time to upgrade?

    I have an F350 diesel and a big enough garage, so if you buy the 257 maybe we could share it? We're only 2500 miles apart.
  10. The problem is that the lead is under the bags and stays there all the time and it did improve the regular wave. If I can find someone to fab a plate reasonably I may give it a try, if not I may have to sacrifice for the darksiders.
  11. This is from last season; before adding the lead to the back corners so there was no counterweight. I think it's better than now. Hmmmm.
  12. Bow- hard tank full + 150 lbs. lead in bow locker Stb. rear hard tank and bag full + 200 lead in back corner + spotter and 200 lbs lead passenger seat. I'm not sure about trim (daughter usually drives) 75%? and 11-11.2. The only counter weight is the 200 lbs of lead in the port back corner. It's not that bad, just looking to make it better for my granddaughter.
  13. I'm trying to clean up my goofy wave. Has anyone made an a-plate for a V226 and did it help?
  14. Fins Really Do Make A Difference

    Thanks! I'll give them a try but at this point it may be next season.
