  1. I'm sure other avalanche owners will chime in, but I think that's ample. You could do that setup on each side and use a wake shaper. Additionally, you can always upgrade your pump to a higher gph to save a little time. They're not that much money.
  2. Hey everyone. Just curious if there was any information on the actual heights of Supreme boats on their trailers? Asking more for garage clearance heights than anything else. I've been checking out the S211 and S21 and wanted to know if they'd fit in a garage with the tower down.
  3. Centurion Elite Diesel

    That's such a cool setup. Pretty ideal for surfing.
  4. Elite c4 surf and value?

    This has a different hill and slightly different interior layout. Based on a comparison between the blue Elite-V and red Elite, the blue one is in much better condition and will likely put out a better wave due to hull shape.
  5. Our new 2013 Sv233

    Love that color combo. Congrats!
  6. Elite c4 surf and value?

    There has to be some wiggle room in that price. There always is! And if they don't budge, have them throw in the bags and PP.
  7. Elite c4 surf and value?

    Seems like a really clean Elite-V! For its age, it looks like it's in incredible condition. Those are super low hours. I would ensure it's been mechanically gone through. The Elite-V and Lightning C4 are identical. I run roughly 2,000lbs of ballast in mine & the ronix shaper.. puts out a great wave on both sides... more than enough to go ropeless for my 230lb body with just my wife in the boat. I have the 750lb Fly-High bags in the lockers and will tuck another bag under the seat on the surf side I would say they're fantastic boats for the money. They're long & big enough where you're not stretched for storage. It also has the black scorpion and a great tower. Perfectpass will be the best thing you did, especially if you're surfing. Perhaps my favorite thing with the Centurions of the mid-2000s is the fully gel coated floors. All the other manufacturers followed after what Centurion did. My prior non-inboard had it and was the best feature. Now, I'm trying to get rid of my snap-in carpet and go full SeaDek or GatorStep. As far as price goes, I'd beat them up a little more considering you're coming up on the off-season, or have them throw in bags and perfect pass. Stereos are stereos.. they're not big selling items as much as a rear wake/trim plate and fully automated ballast would be in my mind. But... I'm more of a function vs. audio guy. Plugs, wires, impeller and fresh oil change are definitely things you should ensure are done along with a compression test and some hours of the boat running to ensure no bad fuel. The Avalanche C4s are great too, but budget is important. If you have any questions, feel free to message me. I have some video of both of my surf waves.
  8. I live in good ol' muggy Florida. If I cover and put my boat away with any type of moisture in it, I remove the seats. Had to clean them up before. Now, I remove the carpet and have a better (more flowing) cover. I hope to do aquatraction or GatorStep in the near future to take care of my wet carpet issue.
  9. I run the same setup, except the part with 4 people! I think that extra bit of weight makes all the difference on our models. I need a ballast bag that can go on that seat to replace those people.
  10. What's your goofy ballast setup?
  11. I will let you know. It's been raining here for the last week and the cover seems to be great. In terms of transporting, I can't yet speak to it, but am told it'll do just fine.
  12. Hey everyone, I wanted to share some photos of the Westland cover I got for my 2005 Lightning C4. I would've loved to have spent a pretty penny in getting a sewlong cover or some really fancy cover, but my wallet preferred going with Westland more! Long story short, I scored a great deal on the Westland cover on iBoats.com and purchased the cover that fit my model with the X-Treme Tower and covered the swim platform. I elected to go with the Sharkskin Premium fabric since it had a 7 year warranty and was supposed to be really good. Installing the cover was about as straight forward as you can get, but I must say, that thing was TIGHT! I hope it stretches, because the back right corner where the cover meets the swim platform barely makes it over. No need for anti-pooling poles. I used the supplied buckles and cinch straps. The cover comes well built and has two vents just past the front windshield. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. Overall thoughts - I'm very happy with the cover, considering the price I paid and what I got. I don't know how it'll hold up, how it'll handle highway speeds, or how it vents moisture. Only time will tell. Uploading images are a little wonky - I have a bunch of images on my Google Photos - https://photos.app.goo.gl/2538YfdQ5c43ddgk1

  14. I'd love try one to see if it's any better than my Ronix shaper
