    Centurion Avalanche C4
  1. Wakesurf Edge Pro vs Ronix Eight.3

    Has anyone compared the nauticurl to the homemade ones out there? Im using the standard homemade and i cant get it very far back on my avalanche the design of the nauticurl looks lie it would sit further back? Any thoughts?
  2. Nice. Appreciate the help. Yes the drain pump at rear makes a lot more sense since when full the boat will be sunk down at the back. Hope to get it all plumbed and put together right away and get this out on the lake to test it this week. Picked up wake shaper today I know a lot recommend going fully listed on Avalanche but wouldn’t mind both options so I can try different configurations.
  3. Yes it’s at bottom maybe 3/4” up from bottom seam. Think going to switch it around and put drain at stern and the pump can sit in engine bay.
  4. Question about where to mount or leave the stock drain pump? When the bag fills up if left on floor like it was I’m assuming it will push the valve in and cause unnecessary stress on that joint on the bag? Thanks for any advice.
  5. thanks. is it possible to use 2 pumps to fill and drain the 1100#. the bag i have has the quick connect on 1 of the top ports and i have the 1200 pump for it. but the bag only has 2 other ports 1 on top and 1 on bottom.
  6. nice ok i can live with 15mins for now. im going to install the bag tomorrow. does the bag need to be vented like the hard tank
  7. Looking for a little help on how the stock ballast system is set up. Is this correct. How long will the 800 stock pumps take to fill 1100# bag? I have 1 1200 pump should i just get 3 more and upgrade. 2 800gpm tsunami pumps mounted behind engine fill rear ballasts? 2 800gpm tsunami pumps front of rear lockers empty ballast 1 water puppy infront of v drive fills center? 1 1000gpm yellow pump mounted to center ballast empties it?
  8. did you find any other videos or write ups im going to to be looking at changing mine soon. more info going in the better
  9. Ya true. I’m no sure the pumps are original I think previous owner may have replaced them find out when I pull it out of hibernation soon
  10. I have been reading as much as I can about weight and bags for the avalanche and for now since I’m on somewhat of a budget And think I’m going to go with a 1100# replacing stock tank in rear port locker and 500# under port seats. I want to use existing pumps and hoses for now if I can am I able to fill both new port side sacs with my existing pump on that side somehow? I know they will be slow filling but I also know this isn’t a 100k boat so we can swim or drink sodas while they fill. Does this sound like a decent setup to start with? 1100# rear locker 500# under port side seats stock Center ballast

    Thanks. That custom cushion looks great infinity. Had sometime today to look closer at the cables and have them figured out thanks for the advise. Couple more questions The wake plate is it meant to adjust or is it always just left as is? Prop question it has a 537 prop on it in great shape but also came with a new spare that is a 645. What are the differences? Couple more pics

    Officially a centurion owner our 1st surf boat and I’m pretty happy. Winter cooperated and I had clean and dry roads all the way home. Couple questions and I’m sure I will have more before I get it out for it’s 1st voyage in the spring. Has the perko dual battery switch the batteries were out I looked quick at the wiring but wanted to check if this is correct. Perko has 2 positives that go out to each battery then there is a negative from boat that connects to one of the batteries and then the negatives are hooked together between batteries? Did not have a bow filler cushion anyone have any suggestions where I could look for one?

    Good point on the spare I do have a extra here ill take with me just in case. Im buying without running but I have spoke to the marine shop that has serviced it twice a year for a number of years and they just had it in getting winterized and a inspection so im confident it will be all good since they just recently looked it over in November they helped a lot.

    On another note has anyone had any experience towing a boat in winter? I'm hoping the highways are dry the day I go get it but if recent snow there could be sand and salt on the roads. I plan on washing at as soon as i get it back but any ideas on how to keep as much off? Would wrapping it with packaging plastic wrap be something worth trying? Ill have a 7-8 hour trip.
