  1. Came from the same boat as Wheels to a 18 Ri237. Same result, I couldn’t be happier with the decision! Good luck finding a new boat.
  2. Ri237 surf/wakeboard settings

    I also have a 18 and I think the Opti V Hull makes a difference. I had the wave dialed in pretty good and then added 500lbs of lead. My wave went to crap and I struggled for a bit. If you’re running lead, Wakeballast has some settings on their website. I have 150 in the back of each locker and 100 under the seats along the sides. ALL pnps full, yes even the front. Opposite ram at 85%, surf tab at 50-80 and stinger wherever looks good. With the front pnp, you won’t need as much stinger. Speed 11-11.4. Usually 3-4 people on board. Our wave has ridiculous push way back and is huge. Good luck!
  3. To answer your question, if I had gone through what you’ve gone through, it would be exceptionally difficult for me to stay with the same brand. I actually switched to Centurion due to a similar nightmare with another brand. That said, there’s no comparing the quality of our Ri237 and our previous boat. I cannot express how pleased we are with the boat as a whole! Very sorry to hear your issues and hope you can move on to enjoy a beautiful boat. I think Infinity is spot on with his 1 in a 1000 perspective.
  4. Waterproofing my cover?

    I have also used 303 with great results. I did 2 coats every couple years and it worked wonders!
  5. Lol, no worries. Just sent a email to Cory. Thanks for your help!
  6. That looks great! How does it attach?
  7. Thanks for posting this! I found out the hard way tonight that my new RI237 is about 2 feet longer than my old LSV. Therefore my hoist canopy is short. This cover will allow me to cover everything but the swim platform, but be able to protect that too? Complete new canopy and cover is about 4K. I like this much better with zero loss in protection. Thanks again!!!
  8. I used a Harbor Freight cheapy on a 36 foot SeaRay I owned. It does have variable speed and worked great. I typically buy the best tools, but in this case, it’s a tool that would only get used once in a great while. The boat was badly oxidized and I used a strong automotive cutting compound that I can’t seem to find the name of. For light scratches, I used 3M Finesse It, which did a great job! I have always used 3M or Collinite paste wax twice a year. Hope something in there can help.
  9. CATS question

    Just took possession of our 2018 Ri237 delivered last week with Cats.
  10. And so it begins!!!

    Lol! When it stops snowing. Weather absolutely sucks!!! I’m really hoping for next week. The forecast has been moving the next nice day to eternally 7 days out. So next thurs is looking promising as of now. Its truly torture waiting!
  11. And so it begins!!!

    Thanks!!! I was really excited to see the factory pics, but neither those pics, nor these do the colors justice. I was blown away at how amazing the blue flake looked next to the black in person!
  12. And so it begins!!!

    It’s here! Hard to appreciate the flake with the indoor lighting, but truly stunning in person. We couldn’t be happier with the Centurion decision!!!!
  13. Thanks for the info!
  14. @Fivebar2 is that on a 237 and are those Domed numbers?
