  1. Last summer I purchased a 2018 Fi23. We discovered there was a leak in the Port rear ballast but could not find the issue. The dealer I took it to found a crack in the rear ballast tank that is part of the hull. I have not seen the crack but the estimate to repair is $1,900. Anyone else had this problem or issue?
  2. When I go to the touch screen for starting to fill my ballast all the options are gone. There are no digital buttons to run the pumps.

  5. I have a 2019 FI23 with less than 25 hours. Was on water yesterday and PNP bags won't fill. Electronic dash shows they are filled. Any ideas?

  8. Hey guys! I purchased my first wake boat last week, an 09 Centurion Enzo SV240. I have a few questions. I bought it from a non-centurion dealer with 105 hours on it. She's beautiful, and I was told everything was functioning perfectly, but my first time out, the speedometer isn't working. It says 0mph until I really accelerate, and once I approach top speed it trickles up to 10-12 mph shown on the speedometer (although I'm clearly doing 35+). The dealer is supposed to look at it, but they're dragging their feet and handling it in a less than professional manner. Any idea what the issue might be? It has the scorpion 377, and 5 hard ballast tanks, 1 center, 2 mid, and 2 rear. I surf goofy and ride the right side of the wake (the driver's side, is that the starboard side?) The other side of the wake is noticeably cleaner, I'm told because of the prop rotation. Any affordable ways to clean up my side? I'm hoping for an affordable but effective wake shaper recommendation. Thanks in advance for your help!!!

  10. Hello, recently i just purchased a 2014 centurion enzo sv233 and need help figuring out best ballast/settings for creating best wake. It has both plug n plays in stern and the ramfill. Any help would be much appreciated. If i need to buy lead weights for best wake then i will.
  11. After 10 years of saying I want a boat and 2 years of saying I am buying a boat I finally pulled the trigger so I'm a newb but a quick learner. There are 3 switches in a line from bow to stern on the boat that say Ballast. I suspect this to be stock ballast because it's all located inside the hull and they all spew out to a stock 3 hole spout on the starboard side of the boat. If it isn't stock then of course I will have to figure it out myself. If it is stock can anyone explain to me how the 3 ballast system works? The first switch (switch closest to the bow) works and fills 1 ballast up but I am unsure of which ballast and where it fills up. The other two switches do not seem to work. I assume that the pumps are broken and will need to fix. If they are stock can someone explain to me where the three ballasts are located and which switch works with which? Any other details would be fantastic if you got it. Also, if anyone knows of any youtube vidoes that would assist that would be fantastic! Thanks!
  12. Recurring issue here. On my 2013 Enzo SV244, there are removable boards that keep the port/starboard stern ballast tanks from getting into the engine. On the port side, my ballast tank keeps busting through the boards and ending up partly in the bilge. The boards themselves touch the lower part of the engine which caused a failure last year. Over the winter I tried adding brackets to help secure one part of the board to the other. Didn't work. Anyone have ideas on how to permanently solve this problem? Thanks!

  14. Hello, New to the forum and the boating world. I recently picked up a 2003 Centurion Tornado Direct Drive. This is my first boat and we loved it last season. The tornado came with a stock rear ballast. Does anyone know what size (lbs) it might be. Also I measured out the compartment and can fit a much larger sack but am worried because it sits on top of the gas tank. Thoughts? I can’t find much on this boat. Also thoughts on surfing with this boat. Ya ya ya... I know it’s a direct drive and requires more weight but where and how much any other tips. Thank you
  15. hi the QF ballas stop drain. its 2013MY standart QUICKFILL. please guide me where should i found the valve ? what can i do while the boat on trailer ? diagram / images will help.. thanks in advance !! yam
  16. Wanted to share some surf info for the older Typhoons and Concourses with the stepped hull/cut away hull. I believe they were built from 2001 until 2005. Found a great surfing set up today that worked awesome for surfing the port side. Probably the best wave I have found so far. I am 235 lbs so the wave needs to be good for me to free surf, and I could have surfed that wave all day. Lots of push with a nice pocket. I was surfing my old Obrian TT. Wish I would have had the Phase 5 with me, but I will give that a try in a few days. Lots of forgiveness, and easy enough to recover if you got a little far back. I have tried many options from more weight in the port locker to more weight on/under the port side seats. Today I had less weight than I normally use and it worked way better. Even when I added a few more pounds in the port locker or port side seat, it made things worse. Weight Set up with people or ballast: Port locker/deck 900 lbs Port seat 175 - 200 lbs Center tank 250 lbs Bow adjust as needed I had approximately 350 lbs Plus driver I ran 500 lbs in the port locker and two guys sitting on the back deck port side (Total of approximately 900 lbs) 1 guy sitting in the back port corner seat at 175 lbs. 250 lbs in the center hull tank. 350 lbs in the bow. I have a ballast bag under the filler cushion in the bow I can adjust as needed. Needed approximately 170 lb ballast plus 1 person at 180 lbs) Running 10 - 11 mph Hope this helps out my fellow Typhoon and Concourse owners with the cut away/stepped hull. I look forward to hearing from other older Typhoon/Concourse owners. Keep on Surfing.
  17. I have a 2015 FS 33 and the RamFill gates are not opening. When I engage the trailer mode button on the dash I can see the red keys on these units spinning. When I go underneath the boat to visually verify, the gates are still closed. Please help save our late season trip to Powell!
  18. Guys, I am in the process of removing the 2 Factory hard tanks out to replace with sacs. They are each a 22 gallon tank. I got the port side out no issue, but I’m stuck with the starboard side. Any help would be appreciated. It’s an 04 Enzo sv230. Thanks!

  21. I recently purchased a plug and play ballast upgrade for my 2014 fx22 from an authorized centurion dealer. Something that they had hanging around the shop since 2014 . The idea of having the system that would work from my touch screen was grate. kit comes with 2 fly high rear locker bags . 2 ballast puppy pumps all the hoses and connections. New pdm with wiring harness . Would anybody know where can i find instructions on how to install it. Specifically pdm and wiring install. Thanks .
  22. Guys, I am new to the forum as I just bought my first Centurion a couple weeks ago. It is a 2004 Enzo SV230. My current setup is the factory hard tanks under each side of the boat and 2 540 lb bags (one in each rear locker), plus a delta mission surf shaper. Those are all plumbed in. I own 2 350 lb bags that are not plumbed, but can be filled with a separate pump. Any ideas on the best weight set up to create a good surf wave with enough push? I am still struggling with throwing the rope and consistently staying in the pocket. Once I drift back, it is tough to push back forward. I am 6 foot, 180 lbs and riding a 5 foot 4 inch hyperlite broadcast. Any thoughts on a good board for me? I am fairly new to surfing, but have been wakeboarding my entire life. Thanks for all the input.
  23. Guys thinking of upgrading my ballast. I have an 04 Enzo sv230 Currently running factory mid ship ballast which totals about 400lbs. I’m running a 540 in each rear locker and a plug and play 350 in the bow and one surf side. Thoughts on what I should upgrade to? Looking to get a longer wave with a little more push. Tossed around the idea of 2 Enzo sacks but they’re so expensive. If anyone has some they’d like to sell and ship, I can Venmo!? Thanks!

  25. There may be a thread out there addressing this so redirect me if this horse has been beaten.... Looking for how folks have setup pre-surf system era boats to get the best wave. My boat is 21' 6'' long and 93 inches across. I have a 200 lb. built in ballast running up the middle and a 250lb tank in each V Drive locker also built into the boat. There is generally 250 lbs. of sandbags in the bow that can be thrown around as needed depending on whether we are wakeboarding or surfing. I keep 100 lbs. of lead on board at all times for small adjustments. I have a DIY surf shaper and am also trying to determine how to best use that new device. To answer the obvious question: I am open to getting more ballast in any form/shape/size. I really want to know how to most to effectively place it within the boat to maximize the wave my smaller boat can throw out. Looking for very specific setups and pics if possible...
