  1. So I picked up two 24DC Interstate Marine Deep Cycle batteries at Costco and brought them to the boat. Did the same test before installing them -- turned key to "on" and got the blue screen, then started the engine and still got the blue screen. Then swapped out the batteries (putting in the Interstate) and the Provision screen worked! I didn’t have time to take the boat out for a spin – I’m hoping to do that next week. So - naturally I'm thanking all of you for recommending I change out the batteries. For sanity's sake, I brought my old batteries to Napa auto parts to get them tested, and they BOTH tested "good". Napa said I should keep them and continue using them. So I'm now perplexed. The old batteries are Optima 8006-006 34M BlueTop Marine Starting Batteries….and I’m wondering if it was really something other than the batteries – maybe the cable connection to the battery was not tight?
  2. Thanks DrNate and InfinitySurf! So the boat is moored at the lake...and I'd like to bring two new ones with me the next time I go. Do you guys know the size? Is it a 24DC? 27DC? I wasn't sure if there's a standard size for Centurion Enzo's. Mine is a 2010 240SV. Costco has the Interstate 24DC and the 27DC, so I'm assuming that's a good brand. Thanks. Don
  3. Thanks Dr. Nate! I didn't think about the batteries being low/going dead. I always drip-charge them during the winter, but it's quite possible that's the problem. They are roughly 5-6 years old. I don't recall what the volts were reading while underway...I'll need to check that next time. What range should the volts be reading while underway? How many years should a marine battery last? Thanks.
  4. I need some help with my Pro-Vision screen. I tried to start my boat up yesterday, but instead of immediately turning over, the engine was silent and I heard a loud beep from the boat. I turned the battery by-pass switch on and then back off, and then it started up, but my Pro-Vision wouldn’t come into focus – it was just a blue screen. I spent a while tinkering around and reading the Crew help forums, taking the Provision unit out of the dash and ensuring all of the connections were seated properly. But still no luck beyond the blue screen. I could start up the boat, drive it, but I couldn’t see the speedometer, speed control, etc. Just a blue screen. I turned the battery by-pass switch on and then off quickly, and all of a sudden the ProVision came back on – and I was able to operate the boat with the Provision screen and all of the controls! So I drove around a bit, and then turned the engine off and back on and the ProVision was still working. But then a little bit later I tried to start the boat again and the provision was blue-screening. I played with the battery by-pass switch and it came back on. Any idea what’s going on? I have a 2010 Enzo 240SV with two batteries. Thanks. Don
  5. Do you store your boat for the winter WITH or WITHOUT the seat cushions? I live in the Seattle area and have typically taken my seat cushions out of the boat and put them in my attic before taking the boat to an off-site heated storage barn. I've done this for the past 5-6 years to ensure great air-flow in the boat and prevent mold. Is this overkill? What do you do?
  6. Killer Goofy-Side Wave?

    Thanks dcastelhano. I'd love to see your wave!
  7. Killer Goofy-Side Wave?

    Thanks everyone. Rhunt111 - I've included a photo of my Bennett trim tab. JJOcean - did you have to change your speed dramatically? How was the push in the back of the wave?
  8. Suck gate to trim tab

    Sounds like a great adaptation! Do you have any photos of the goofy wave? Thanks.
  9. Killer Goofy-Side Wave?

    Thanks Rhunt111 and Troy. Question: does the A-plate affect the regular (port) wave? I don't want to do anything to alter that. Thanks. Don
  10. I have a 2010 Enzo (SV 240), and I’ve traditionally listed the boat and gotten a killer port-side wave, but I could never get a good goofy wave. So I have been trying the Mission Delta, and I need help. I tried the Delta with all of the weight evenly distributed, but found that the device works better on my boat with some listing. With listing, I can get a pretty good goofy wave but I need to go 13.6 mph to get the wave to clean up. It’s long, but I have to be full-throttle on the surfboard to keep up with the wave. My regular-side wave shapes up nicely at 11.2 mph. Questions: Has anyone had great success surfing the goofy side using the Delta (assuming you have an Enzo with the standard prop rotation)? If so, how do you set the boat up? Have you found more luck with one of the other suction cup devices? Do you put lead in the rear storage compartments (I used to do this before I started trying the Delta) Do you have any photos of your wave? Here’s my setup to surf the goofy side: Bow: 590 lbs (350lbs sac and 240lbs lead evenly distributed) Center tank: full Rear storage: 1400lb Enzo sacks on each side – 100% full on goofy (starboard) side, 70% full on port side. Listing weight: 720 lbs lead on goofy side (360lbs on rear seat on goofy side, 360lbs lead behind driver’s seat) Thanks!
  11. Belt Cover for PCM ZR 409

    Thanks WakeDoc and DrNate.
  12. Hi folks. I have a 2010 Centurion Enzo, and the belt cover has broken twice. I've replaced it once before, and I'm wondering if I really need to replace it again. My mechanic said I really don't need it...so I'm throwing it out to you to let me know if it serves any purpose. I know it will keep my fingers away from the belts while the engine is running, but I really can't reach back into that confined space anyway (and definitely wouldn't stick my hand back there when the engine is running). Thoughts? Thanks. Don

  15. Just double checking here to see if other people have done this and if it's a good idea. Thanks. Don
