  1. RI237 Ramfill

    Here’s my trick to custom waves on the ri217. I pick my favorite surf mode and start driving at the preset 11 mph or so. We watch the wave until we like it. Meanwhile, over riding ram fill up to 3 times before it’s full. I’ve found it’s more of an art than a science. Full ballast means not as long of a wave. My wife prefers no pnp bags and about 90% ramfill. I’ve played with the wave for hours on end and would suggest driving into the desirable wave.

    The ri217 holds 8 very comfortably surfing for the day. The kids hang out on the transom seats most of the day in our boat. Transom seats are extremely important and are acceptable in the ri series. Best wave in the business, but make sure service is top notch or you will be bitter like me as the boat sits in a yard for weeks before the service department can touch it. Another lost summer due to poor service by freedom Powersports in dallasin Dallas.

  4. Trying the 2019 Supra se tomorrow and surfing the 2019 nautique friday. Either way, looks like my love affair with centurion is going to be over, because I require service. Hopefully the new waves can compete. Centurion needs to require a higher level of service from their dealers. I’ll report back my findings.
  5. Dealer service

    Do not, and I repeat do not get that boat without great local service. I am going thru hell right now due to service. 25 hour $1000 service, impeller and oil changes every 50 hours thereafter. I’ve had dozens of warranty issues. My boat lives away from lift/dock due to slow/substandard service. I’m in Dallas. I’ve been talking to roger in tech support at centurion as the problem I have is my own if I want my boat this summer. I am paying on my own to have the nautique dealer fix my boat. I love my wave, but the service is horrific. I am forced to make a change due to poor service. Don’t do it!
  6. Thanks 4 the input. I’m going to pay the nautique dealership to replace the packing and see if it solves the problem. My bilge dumps gallons as surfing. The nautique dealer is like the Maytag repairman. They’ve been waiting to fix a boat. Nearest centurion dealership is in Austin. 3.5 hours away. I’m just gonna bite the bullet, pay, and submit bill to centurion. Fingers crossed they do the right thing. They are very aware of my situation. I am in love with my wave as I create custom waves for each surfer. I really just wish there was a reputable service center in the Dallas area.
  7. Freedom Powersports owns the Dallas territory for centurion. They are bad. I surf behind nautiques, master crafts, supras, Malibu’s, axis’s, regals, and more. I love the wave I can create with my Ri217. I put over 200 hrs surfing it in one year. It would have been 400 hrs if freedom’s service didn’t suck so bad. I’m trading my boat, for a better boat (not as great of a wave, but better boat), because my boat is always sitting in the parking lot at freedom Powersports and they don’t have the courtesy to even cover it. I didn’t get a boat to always have it in the shop. Freedom Powersports is busy fixing 4 wheelers and called me an big bird because I wanted my 1 year old boat that is leaking water in the hull put in front of the line. My lost summer due to poor service. Don’t buy a centurion if you live in dfw. I’m buying a nautique. There service here is 2nd to none. Centurion and freedom provide 0 support at cedar creek. Sad! >$100,000 mistake
