  1. Looking for enzo or avy

    Not yet but I’ll grab one. Me and my 2 boys were able to go ropeless on day 1. Currently looking for a more suited prop as it currently has an OJ 13.7x17.5. Considering the acme 2571 (14x12) as we will predominantly surf and occasionally wakeboard
  2. Looking for enzo or avy

    We ended up closing on a 2008 Supra 22ssv
  3. Looking for enzo or avy

    And the one in Austin has a contract on it. I found a 06 avy in Minnesota but the wife feels like we’d almost be obligated to buy it if I drove the 8 hours to check it out. I’m talking to a guy in Rio Vista, TX about a SANTE 210
  4. Looking for enzo or avy

    the Osage beach sv230 has been sold already. I’ll look at the others
  5. Looking for enzo or avy

    Well the boss lady just made it harder on me. Gave me a hard limit of 35k. I got furloughed so we’re just planning accordingly. That being said, I imagine that once we have a capable boat that we’ll probably end up surfing more than anything else.
  6. Looking for enzo or avy

    What is the consensus on a 2003 cyclone with the storm package 1?
  7. So the wife and kids are demanding a boat and of course I want a Centurion. We are looking for either an Avalanche C4 or an Enzo. We will probably split our time between boarding and surfing. We are located in NE Oklahoma and are wanting to be in the sub 40-45 range. Of course the best deal is what we're after but if we have to use our entire budget for the right boat then so be it. If you happen to know of anything that fits the bill that wouldn't take me forever to drive to then that'd be great. Paul
  8. So the wife and kids want a boat and there is a 2006 Elite V Air Warrior that is local to me for sale. The guy is asking $24,000 and the boat has 450 hours on it. It has the factory hard tank in center and 2000 lbs of additional ballast. Comes with a Mission Delta surf gate, fresh service, bimini top, wakeboard and a tube which I doubt we’ll use. We are wanting to surf with whatever we buy and I think this could do it for us. Are there any specific areas that I need to look at when we take it out on the water? The seller already knows I want the engine cold when we get there. thanks, Paul
  9. Choices!?!?

    So the Mrs and I just closed on our house, I got a promotion, and my work, oilfield, has decided to give me back some of the 40k/year they stripped me of in the downturn. The boss lady has given the thumbs up to start shopping for a boat for the upcoming season and so far I’ve found a couple that I’m considering so far. The first is a 2007 SV240 with the 6.2L motor and 67 hours, this part kind of scares me but not a definite turnoff. A 2 owner boat where the origins owner passed away and left it to his son that was not into boating so it was dry stored. it has no speakers on the tower and only has 2 hard tanks with zero additional ballast so it’s kind of a clean slate. Asking price is 36k. The next option is a 2012 SV233 with the 5.7L and 206 hours. This one appears to have a pretty nice exile system already, 6 tower speakers, but am unsure on the details but have requested additional information on this as well as any upgrades to the ballast system. This boat is being offered at 48k. I am located in Northeastern Oklahoma up on Grand Lake but have no qualms driving a long distance to get the right vessel for us. In the past we have predominantly knee/wakeboarded but we will be doing a lot of surfing starting this coming up summer and figure the split would be probably 50/50. We are wanting to stay under 50k and don’t mind doing upgrades ourselves but definitely wouldn’t turn down something that was ready for warmer days. Any insight is greatly appreciated as well as any leads on other boats as well.
  10. Ri217 owners

    That’s the plan but just have to get home and then find one within driving distance. Been in Kenai, AK for the past 3 weeks but I get to go home on the 9th. That first weekend we’re heading east out of Oklahoma on i44 and headed to St. Louis for the weekend with the camper. The Mrs wants to take the kids to 6 flags and get some use out of those season passes
  11. I have a few questions for the 217 owners of the crew. The capacity is listed as 14 but what is the realistic number and size wise how roomy is it for an almost 22’ boat? Say in comparison to a 23lsv, fs33, avy, etc? We’ll be coming from a 19’ dd so I’m sure just with the layout it’ll be much larger than that. We’re a family of 4(myself, mrs, 17 and 13 yo boys. The vast majority of the time it’ll be us 4 and here and there a few friends, up to 5 or 6, so we’re wanting to figure out if this is an option for us. Also, are there changes for certain year models that make them better than others?
  12. Typhoon vs Enzo 240

    @Shaka I’d be interested in seeing some details of a surf system that you have. I have a few ideas in relation to the tab designs that may be able to increase the size of the wave. Shoot me a pm if you’d like to discuss it any.
  13. 2017 S238 questions

    Well the dealer has gotten back with me and as far as prop goes he says it has the “standard” 15”. He did state that they have added all of the pnp ballast to it and that they are currently asking $83,900. Unfortunately, the wife and I are in the process of refinancing our house and it looks like we’ll soon be in a legal ordeal with some deadbeat lessees that are skipping out on $1500 a month in rent so I’m hoping we’re in the position to pull the trigger around the first of the year which totally sucks but it is what it is. I plan to keep my eye out on this boat and should they still have it when we’re ready I’m thinking we should be able to get otd in the low 70s. Does that seem feasible for a 2017 at that point in time? That’d be somewhere in the range of 20-25% off of msrp for what is a brand new 2 year old boat
  14. @wesblake, if you didn’t find any air leaks on the intake then the next thing to look at is the iac valve like @prorider17 suggested. Only reason that I am leaning towards intake leak is that you stated the issue goes away once the motor is warmed up. A leak can be present on a cold motor and once everything expands after it’s nice and warm it can seal it off.
  15. Cracked Evolution Tower

    Sleeving it like this is probably the cheapest way to fix it and, if done correctly, will be stronger than new. Should take a decent welder no more than a hour or so.
