  1. Right on Surf. Sounds like a good deal. Not sure how these compare to the GSA, both are the same concepts right, but 2k vs 4k sounds a lot better for sure haha
  2. no FB for me so cant see the videos but looks good. My only concern would be someone jumping off the side of the swim deck. Looks like those fins go quite a bit out from the edge of the swim platform? Also you use these tabs instead of a suckgate on the side? Or in addition? I have no idea how these work haha
  3. thinking about it, really want a 23' but don't want a payment either so that leaves me with the 230s and not the 233 or 244s with the cabin forward design like Id prefer. So I keep going back and forth, if the cabin on the 230 is almost the same as the Elite or Avy just a longer bow it wouldn't be much of a noticeable upgrade space wise. Only use the bow for kids or when floating.
  4. 10s are a much better sound vs the 8s if price difference is not the concern get the 10s you can always turn it down but the more balanced sound, mid bass vs highs, is better sounding all around over the 8s all day.
  5. Not sure where youre located but Im looking at possibly selling my 2000 Elite V in your price range. Its nice for sufing and skiing and just about everything else.
  6. 750s fit with room to spare. I pretty much only run regular side so I have a 1100 in port locker that doesn't quite fill all the way up, if it does it starts to push up the hatch, and a 750 in the starboard locker.
  7. Fi 25 on the way

    us non facespacers are left in the dust lol.........
  8. Get the 4x4 version. Unless its a rally car AWD is a crap bag gimmick. You want real selective hi/lo 4 wheel drive. Youll rarely need it but when you do AWD wont cut it. And since youre looking for a sequoia MPG probably isn't a concern, while it is a Toyota them V8s can drink some gas pretty good. Ive only had to use 4x4 a couple times pulling my smaller Elite out of the water but both times were when the water was real low and the boat was full of people. It was just a little too heavy for the old Tahoe in 2 wheel, but slapped it in 4 and she pulled right along. Thank god I wasn't that a**hole needing to get a tow up by one of the diesel duche kids at the ramp haha
  9. Pulling out after the tank is empty seems too late in my experiences........
  10. Or a brass set up on the inlet in the motor bay to hook up a garden hose, but that brass will cost you about 75 so more than double the fake a lake. Just depends on which you prefer. Ive "heard" those fake a lakes can not provide enough water and still starve the motor but have not seen anyone with any proof to this and if Nick uses one Id say that was a good testament to their reliability. http://www.centurioncrew.com/index.php?/forums/topic/10670-no-more-fake-a-lake/
  11. July pic video thread

    Yea its always nice to get a couple pulls when youre the one driving all the time. My wife and friends are better than I am and then try to brag about it. I just throw it back at them that they are so good because they get the best driver all the time and I get crap drivers who consistently turn away from the wake. Didn't sit well with wifey.......... One tip I would give is you have way too much back foot. You need to be almost neutral most of the time, and if you want to speed up swing your hips forward, slow down swing them back. I find it easier to think about it using your hips instead of telling people to lean on one foot or the other. Leaning throws your balance point off and causes most beginners to wipe out. Pushing your hips forward or back moves your weight but keeps you more upright and balanced.
  12. Id start with this. For years I had a long 1/2 socket extension and small hammer in an old Toyota beater I had years ago, every now and then Id turn the key and nothing would happen. Pop the hood give the side of the starter a couple good smacks and boom fired right up. Try to replicate the problem at home or on the dock then smack the starter. If it fires up right after swap in a new starter and you should be good. If not then start checking power to the starter and back from there.
  13. Just a general clean or trying to remove a stain? I would think a little dish soap and water would work great with a little light scrub
  14. not the best demonstration but you get the idea. Word of advice, make sure you don't have a teak swim deck if youre trying this. We tried a for hours and on mine last year and it was slicker the snail sperm. My wife smacked hard on her side and had a bruise for months. Worst part was when I got home I realized all the marks on the deck from the board that I had to sand down a bit and refinish haha
  15. Did I miss the water coming out of the exhaustnports or is that a closed coolant system? Would be a shame to burn up a nice find running dry
