  1. An Avy is 2 inches wider and a foot longer.
  2. Best Surf Boards

    I (5'11", 170lbs) run a Doomswell Neo 4'6". My buddy (6'7" 220lbs of so) just bought a 4'8" Neo. He surfed my Neo all the time until he just got his Neo. He tried a bunch of boards out and still liked how the Neo surfed and bought his own. Another buddy rode my Neo and ended up buying his own also, since he liked mine so much. Either way, everyone will have their own opinion. Try and find a place willing to let you try before you buy, and go that way. A Broadcast is a great learning/boat board.
  3. That will get you a surfable wave. I wouldn't put the 350 in the bow. If you want put it on the floor, surf side. During the off season, get 2 custom enzo sac's (if you surf both sides) install and enjoy the much larger wake. Again I like to list, fill just the surf side and have people or put the 350 on the seat. The wave would be what I love. Tall, steep and long. I did a custom sac in my Avy and did a write up about it. I plumped in a line to fill the extra bag on the seat when light on crew. My reversible pump fills and empty's the sac on the seat when needed.

    No side swipe. my push is awesome and having less than 2k lbs in ballast, i am happy. Super easy to drive. only thing I watch out for is rollers from other boats. Once the surfer drops, put the boat into neutral and turn to the opposite of the lean, let the wave pass which will turn the boat for you, then idle back to the surfer. No issues at all.

    If you are going to list it, you need the rub rail close to the water sitting still. Here is my 08 Avy. Little exaggerated, the run tail is usually just at the water level. Then here is my buddy at 6’7” surfing with his 8yo daughter. I would call up wakemakers and have them build you custom sacs that fill the locker and go up under the seats also. Have each bag it’s own reversible pump to fill and empty. It takes about 8min to fill/empty my custom sac. If you want to list it, you can. If you want to use the suck gate you can. Best of both worlds and just buying bags once. I started out with the 1100’s and then bought the custom. I bought bags twice. lol.
  6. I have to tap on my gauges every now and then to make them come alive.
  7. Welcome, The Enzo SV230 is an awesome surf boat. Back then we listed the boat, and the wave is awesome. Some guys like the suck gates now, I still prefer my listed wave. Not near the weight needed and much better on fuel. You should be able to get a surfable wave out of what is in the boat now. You will want and the boat is capable of much more. Lots of threads on this site about how to set up that era boat. Basic same setup for all Enzo 230/240. (240 being longer can handle more weight). If it was me, I would fill factory center and everything on the surf side, add the 350 to the seat in front of the locker, list it and surf it. That Broadcast is a great learning board and boat board. Learn basics on that and then figure out if you want skim or surf. For surf I would recommend trying a Doomswell Neo 4'8" (you can ride a 4'6" but you will not have as much play room on the wave. My buddy 6'7" 200lbs or so rides my 4'6" neo all the time but ordered himself a 4'8") Pictures of the boat?
  8. And Look at the HIN. Does it start with an NC or CA? NC boats of that era seem to be better built. Not plywood for seat bottoms and such. just another thing to look at. If I was to guess, since it is on a boatmate trailer that it is a NC boat. For me that would add value also.
  9. Couple bargaining things I see. No adjustable wakeplate. Rip in the starboard rear corner seat. (Yellow piping to grey bottom, both of my rear corner seats are pulling at the seam like that) The swim platform brackets are the old aluminum style and they will eventually crack and break. The Teak platform might be a lot lighter than the fiberglass so it might take longer to break, but I bet they will break in the near future. The "Bling" package wasn't replaced with the chrome ones, it still has the polished aluminum ones, and they corrode around the screw holes. The bimini looks to be aftermarket or bent. I have the same tower and all the attachment poles are supposed to be straight. the factory bimini for that tower is super easy and good sized. What are all the extra clamps on the tower? I bet the carpet backing is shot, mine is and mine has been indoors since I bought it new in 2010, it is a late build 08. Just a quick look observations. Hope it helps. Wish I bought a typhoon. LOL
  10. I would love a Typhoon! My Avy is awesome but the extra foot would be awesome. Do custom sacs that fill the locker and run up under the seats, list the boat and enjoy the awesome wave without spending a fortune on fuel. Link to the boat? Power tab? Perfect pass? condition? Prop?
  11. maybe an oil cooler line (if it even has an oil cooler) came off and pumped the oil out. Hope it is an easy/quick fix. Which engine?
  12. VI24?

    Welcome back!!!
  13. Welcome! bunch of guys with a boat load of knowledge on this forum. My $.02. If you don't mind listing the boat (more weight on the surf side of the boat, and the boat lists in the water) go with an Avy, Enzo 230/233/240/244, or FX/FS. These boats shine with the least amount of ballast to surf wave potential. I run about 2k in my Avy and my goofy wave as great, but that is all we surf and I list it and surf it. You can make the ballast system completely automated, just have to install pumps, switches and bags, fairly easy. If you don't feel comfortable in Listing the boat, then you need to look at the Ri/Fi boats. But they most likely be out of your 60K budget. Only other brand I have surfed was a newer Mastercraft NXT22, I think. The wave was acceptable but he had 900 lbs of lead plus all ballast full and we went through a lot of fuel for a short surf session. Tige does not have a Deep V like the Centurion/Supreme's. And my opinion, Centurion is the Gold Standard for surf wave. Research, research and research. Everyone will have an opinion. Go out and ride with other people and form your own opinion. For me the fuel usage would be a big deciding factor. I don't have expendable income and everything is planned out. If the boat used a bunch more fuel that it currently does, I wouldn't get to use it near as much.
  14. Budget stereo build 2008 Avy

    Out with the old Sony stereo from 2008 and in with a new Kenwood with Bluetooth, 4v pre-amps and HD radio. Just installed tonight. Will work on tuning tomorrow hopefully.
  15. Advice on 2007 C4 Elite V

    Youre in DFW! I'm over by Eagle Mountain lake. What side do you surf? Me and my crew are all goofy, if you want to ride a centurion wave let me know. I have my Avy setup for that side.
