    What Brand of lead are they stocking? Pop or WakeBallast?
  2. help

    We're derailing the thread. We're super close to Alouette, so this is our home lake. We hit Pitt and Cultus once in awhile, and spend time on Osoyoos as well. Did you grab your S238 from Extreme?
  3. help

    We have a 2016. I think these were our settings last summer. Sumo Sac 850's full, Quick Fill Full, Center tank Full, and maybe some Bow bag weight depending on passengers and seating. We also run 335 lbs of lead. 80lbs at the rear of each locker, 25 lbs at the front of each locker, 50 lbs under Port Seat, 75 lbs under Starboard seat. Quicksurf all the way down, Trim tab 20 - 50% depending on surf side. Speed 11 to 11.4. Bleed a little off the non surf side quick-fill to clean the wave. Full fuel when we start, and on most outings just 2 adults, and 2 teen boys. So 3 of us on the boat during a surf session. We have plenty of push. Each rear quick fill tank should be 500lbs, center tank 350 lbs. Front bow bag 500 lbs.
  4. CREW DEAL: 2018 CenturionCrew.Com Spare Tire Cover

    Can a SupremeCrew cover be added into the deal?
  5. Thank you for the honest feedback DarksideR. Maybe I should see Tony, and grab some measurements on an Fi or RI and see if I could make my own Silencer. Just purchase the rubber tubing and clamps then fabricate a Stainless or Aluminum plate with a tapered thru pipe. Can't wait to get the boat out of storage.
  6. Thank you for the speedy reply. I think I will try and order a setup if they aren't too outrageous.
  7. h20king, now that you have your Fi in hand, do you think the Silent Stinger would have been a direct bolt on to your S238? Will the shape of the Silent Stinger with the additional wings and small turndowns affect the wave, or offer improvement? My assumption is you need to ensure the Lenco Ram ears are located at the same point on the Silent Stinger to keep the plate travel the same, then the new Stainless Band clamps for the rubber outlet hose will clamp on the existing Exhaust hull Outlet. The hinge shape and bolt pattern seems the same, but I am judging all this from photos.
  8. All FAE provided pics with a Stinger. Don't wan't to drop Canadian pesos if it will spray and wreck the wave. Some action video from above and behind would be ideal.
  9. They sent me 2 other pics from the same angle. They just show the stinger in different positions. I can post them later.
  10. FAE has a new through plate design for those of us with boats with the long stinger plate. You send your plate to them, they cut a hole and ship it back. Our issue is the boat is in storage until May. We would like to have the setup in hand by mid April. Does anyone know what Fineline would charge for a new Stinger Plate? I still think the Centurion Silent Stinger would work well. If I order or fabricate my own stinger plate, is it worth adding the side wings on a 2016 S238, or it is completely unnecessary on this year?
  11. Would it have been a direct fit on your '16? I came across this DIY design that was done on Wake Garage. Trim plate and FAE in one. Keeps the back end much cleaner.
  12. Fresh Air Exhaust online ordering

    I saw a Malibu facebook group buy on FAE going on with this code 'NEWYEAR18' for $75 off until January 12th.
  13. Darksider was FAE able to create a solution for you? My wife has asked me to look into putting an FAE on for this summer and I'm not too keen on it if it is not 100%. That, and with the double edge sword trim tab it will stick out a ways. Really wish we could buy the RI stinger exhaust plate and tubing. Don't see why that setup wouldn't work. I would gladly pay a few more dollars to Fineline for that setup. maybe it is as easy as buying the rubber exhaust tube from Fineline, and then fabricating a plate.
  14. S238 tow vehicles

    I initially pulled our S238 with a 2013 1500 5.3L Silverado. Locally to the lake 15km each way and around town was fine with the S238. Braking was fine and with the grade braking of the truck there was never a concern stopping. We live with hills and mountains surrounding us, so it worked in the RPM band. Longer mountain trips you needed to hit a gas station along the way. If you got out of the power band on a steep section due to traffic, you spent the rest of the climb creeping. It was light on the open highway and you could feel the wind gusts trying to push it with the 238. The 3500 is just so much nicer to tow with, and like you, I use mine as a commuter, so was very concerned about giving up my 1500.

    H20king's is an S238, as is mine above.
