  1. CATS question

    Congratulations Gdmatson!!
  2. CATS question

    My buddy said he was under the impression he had CATS on his new 2018 but the sales rep said it was no longer available as an option? Maybe its just a misunderstanding but discontinuing CATS made no sense to me since it has such a big effect on my wave and running attitude. But I only have a 217 and do not have the new optiV hull so i wanted to see if what he was hearing was true. Thanks all for clarifying - sounds like my buddy better make sure his boat has the fin underneath if he thought he paid for that option.
  3. CATS question

    I guess i heard that maybe . . . regardless, thanks for the clarification @NW Boat Sports. @Blackcrowwhite

    @cripper, I had the exact same issue with my 217. I had it repaired and ate the expense because I float my boat and thought that might have caused it but my gel coat tech swore it was an issue with the factory molding. He also told me it just comesmetic but i had it fixed anyway because i wanted her to be pretty again. I considered having the bottom coated to prevent it from reoccuring after floating it this season but decided not to after the gel coat guy said i was an idiot (which i already knew but he help reaffirm). I was also considering a lift and second slip but after reading your post it appears Centurion had some issues with the molding process on the 217s. Be interested if anyone else comes forward. My guy sanded the small area down with his sander, 600 lb wet dry followed with 1200 lb wet dry paper, and then a premium ultra popish to match the color and smooth out the spot. Make a warranty claim for the repair costs and fineline shouldnt sweat you. If they do PM me, i know a lawyer that will throw any demand on his letter head 😎
  5. Hey crew, my buddy was saying today that centurion was discontuning CATS starting with the 2018 models? I had not heard that yet and was wondering if true

  7. No zoom on the contour. Love the rearview mirror idea infinity 😎.
  8. I use a contour camer mounted to my tower. Slightly cheaper than a gopro. Video quality seems comparable to the gopro but no viewing screen. Super light weight, same mounts and water proof.
  9. I put the reg #s there also.

    Test surf them if possible and choose the one that has, in your opinion, the best feeling wave. All other considerations aside, you will never regret spending some extra money on a better wave. However, knowing there is a better wave that you passed on will haunt you everytime you see that boat pass, that is if you are anything like me. If you cant tell a difference in the waves after surfing them, then buy the cheapest option and know you are a genius. Thats my 2 cents

    I would guess that the FX wave will probably be a little "better" and easier to dial in, but the difference between the two waves is probably small compared to the difference in quality in boats, just my guess from what i read and seen on this site). The 2017 is basically a brand new boat where the 2014 is no longer being manufactured. Centurion moved away from the FX for alot of the reasons @RhuntIII identified. The two biggest knocks that i have seen the 238 is the need for added ballast and the windshield. Assuming you are smart enough not to get caught up in looks over functionality, the windshield should really be a non issue (most people who have the modified windshield seem to like the functionality). As far as ballast, every boat out there needs added ballast. Even the guys running the 257s are adding 1000 lbs in the rear lockers, and they start with 5500 lbs factory. I add 400 lbs lead to my 217 on top of the 4950 factory) and the waves are sick. @MFasocan correct me, but the difference i seen between my 217 and 226 is i still have space in my rears for gear where my rears in the 226 were bagged to the brim. I think that will be the case with the 238, but the boat itself and the wave will be amazing. Good luck with your decision!
  12. Sorry everyone, wrong link. Here is the actuator link. https://youtu.be/2tO26qQQ3mk
  13. Anybody see this before? https://youtu.be/q1Zfgqvam2c Started the drive and everything looked okay (took the attached pic in the storage lot and tabs were up). Got to my location and noticed the port tab was deployed. Engaged the quicksurf and no movement or retraction. Assume my casing is stripped? Hope it is covered by the warranty I guess.
