  1. Going from a 2015 SV233 to a 2019 RI237?

    I did it! Got a really good deal on the new one and the trade-in. Can't wait to get it in the water. Thanks for the responses!
  2. We have been in the Centurion Family for a few years now. Bought a 2015 SV233 (no ram fill) that was a couple of years old to get into the swing of things so we didn't have to plop down huge money in the beginning. Now that we are die-hard, I am thinking about an upgrade. Found a 2019 RI237 that is a leftover that I like. Has all the bells and whistles (drop zone tower, 5100 lbs of ballast, ram fill, cover fire speakers). The good thing is that the dealer is going to give me what I paid for mine two years ago. So besides the electronic differences, what differences will I see from the surf wave, etc? The best I can tell, the boat with loaded ballast will be about 3,000 lbs more which will definitely be a bigger more powerful wave. We have quick surf now, but I was told them have improved the system. Thoughts? Is it worth it, or just stay with what I have? Thanks!
  3. Luckily mine was covered under warranty. They told me it would be 3k if not under warranty. It was well worth the cost to transfer the warranty for sure!
  4. I was having the "ghost touch" problems. The ballast would start emptying and filling all the time. Speed control would come on while just cruising. Real pain! Turning it off and starting back up would fix the problem for a few passes then it would start back up. It took several months of going back and forth with Fineline trying different things. We tried disconnecting batteries completely from the boat (hard reboot), software update (they emailed me the link to download to USB). Finally got the new screen during the fall of 2019. Worked great and easy to install (we are two hours from the dealer so I did it myself). I have a 2015 SV233. I was told that they had major issues with those screens when they first came out. Supposedly they fixed the issues. I hope you transferred the warranty into your name. The warranty on those screens is 5 years. If not they are 3,000 each. They only give you like 90 days from the date of the bill of sale to transfer the warranty and you have to send a copy of the bill of sale to them with the paperwork.
  5. We have a rip in one of the rear locker PNP bags on our 2015 SV233. Does anyone know the measurements of those? There were factory installed. There are no markings on the bag or they have worn off over the years. Thanks!

  7. Have a 2015 SV233...Need Help

    Wow!!! Thanks for all of the help. Can't wait to get to the lake and try these out! We have 7 ballast in total. We have (screen pic below): - QFP and QFS - P Pro and S Pro - Bow - P PNP and S PNP I had watched a video on how to set up the RI and figured it was all the same. Boy was I wrong. : ) I have been filling up all bags except the bow to 100%, the non surf tab to 80%, and the center at 0. Like I said, my son surfs well on it, but he could surf on anything as he is so light and pumps like a madman. When the transom bags are full they do fill up the whole locker (upper on each side of the engine). The regular surf that was left on the boat is shown in the pic.

    So you do not set it up as a profile to do it automatically? Anything on the quick surf? Thanks again!
  9. I have a 2015 SV233. We bought it in the fall of 2017. This is our first surf boat, so newbies. We are still figuring things out and could use a little help. We have almost everything on it. Quick surf, all ballast, and CATS. It does not have ramfill. I just ordered 500 lbs of lead. Most of the time it is just me, my daughter, and my son going out and he surfs most of the time. We all surf regular. We very seldom have a goofy rider (but would like a good set up for goofy). He is small, about 125 lbs, and pretty good. He can handle any wave but loves lots of push (wave snob). My daughter is small also so they can surf behind just about anything. I am having trouble when I surf when it is just he and I. I can't seem to get the push and it is like I have to stay right behind the boat or I go out the back of the wave. This weekend we were out there with more people and I was able to do better when I got a couple of larger people in the back. Some settings for each of us would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance! Jonathan Scarborough
