  1. Hey all, I own a 2016 RI217 in Hawaii where there are no dealerships that support Centurion and have a question that I cannot find an answer to online or in photos or the manual... Is my CATS fin lower than it is supposed to be? It used to be flush with the boat, and now it is 2-3 inches lower than it used to be and no matter what I do it will turn but not raise/lower. Any photos or information to put my mind at ease is appreciated, thanks so much in advance
  2. Need some help: On vacation at Lake Gaston with my 2016 Centurion Enzo SV233. The trim tab and cats fin won't move from the steering column levers or from the touch screen. I've crawled all around the boat looking for a bad fuse, switch, connector.... and so far nothing. Any ideas?
  3. I'm I the only one who ended up buying a used Ri217 without CATS? Did I make a big mistake? It seems like I can't produce a surf wave that is comparable to any of the other surf boats out there.

  5. 2014 233 Enzo worked great before winter. Winterized and left in a garage. First trip today--no CATs fin movement, no wake plate movement, no valve movement. Valves show they are working on the screen but the CATs and the wake plate don't show any response on the screen. Radio intermittently working. Front ballast pump not working. The screen looks fine and responds to touch otherwise. Any ideas? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
  6. So the short of it is that my silver adjustable component within the middle of my rudder came out and fell to the bottom of the lake 6 weeks ago (like several others on here). The boat rode and tracked fine without it, but I had it replaced 2 weeks ago under warranty when I knew we wouldn’t be out on the boat. I put the boat back in the water with the new rudder and the boat pulls significantly to the left when at cruising speed (25mph). Video of the tracking issue … wheel has to be turned a little right to keep straight and when I let go turns left - https://youtu.be/Fj0mEny2Q7c. Never did that with my other rudder – very straight when I let go with or without silver tunable rudder component. I’ve adjusted the silver component on the new rudder to compensate for the pull, but it has little effect even when at a pretty severe angle. I even tried it in the opposite direction and it had very little change. I also know I could grind the rudder on the right trailing edge, but I’m not sure it is really a rudder problem at this point – so don’t want to go that route yet. After looking at everything top to bottom - it seems like my CATS might be not centered even though it says it is centered @ 50. While cruising, I can pretty much straighten it out by setting CATS to 70 with just me in the boat (no ballast). Never had to do that before. The dealer did break the wheel off my trailer jack when they lifted the rear of the boat to remove the rudder (they’re in process of putting on new replacement jack). I asked them if the CATS fin got bumped when that occurred. They said no. What do you guys think? Attached photo of my CATS on lift with it saying it is centered, but looks like it is pointing left to me. Also, I’ve attached a view of the wake with CATS at 50, but you can see how the wake is washed over. Could the rudder really do that or is it the CATS? To add insult to injury, my local dealer is saying they aren’t comfortable “tuning” the rudder after getting instructions from Fineline and had Fineline refer me to an out of state dealer (next closest) to have the issue fixed. That’s why I’m looking for additional input at this point … regretting making the rudder change at this point.

  8. Hey everyone, I'm new to the "crew" but I'm excited to get some thoughts. I'm putting in an order for an Fi23 (yes, I'm unbelievably excited!) We will be primarily surfing, but will definitely do some wakeboarding too. So I've added the essentials like QuickSurf, RAMFILL, Silent Stinger, and p-n-p, but I'm wondering about CATS. With the new hull design I'm wondering how much impact CATS will have and if I'll regret not having it. I know that there's not a ton of experience with the new hull design but I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
  9. So I bought my 2014 sv 244 new nov 2015. In the spring of 2016 we finally got to go do the water test with the dealer, right away I noticed that when powering up the boat the bow bag started filling up and the ramfill said "increase speed to fill". Knowing that that wasn't right I advised the dealer and centurion sent them the software update. So my boat is that the dealer waiting for the screen update, they get the USB from centurion and still it wants to fill right away without pressing on the screen. So I still don't have my boat, they decide that they will change my screen out completely. Once that happened the boat ran fine. This spring (29 May 2017) I take the boat out for the first time this year and I noticed that when we are surfing sometimes the cats orange positional triangle disappears and that the green cats line stays all the way left. I contact the dealership then and don't here back from them. Aug 6 I take my boat out again but this time the ramfill does' work the boat fills up alone at the dock. So I enter the trailer mode and press open, close a few times then drive forward the let the boat think it's filling then I drained them. Then I could fill properly. So go boating and the screen is still acting up. I take the boat out and contact my dealer on the 7th I bring it in and they contact centurion about the valves at the same time we notice that my rudder is not inline anymore so they look and they say it's the keyway that fell out so they fix it. A week later they get the parts to swap out the drain master valves for the new valterra but they never got instructions and there was parts missing. So I contact centurion to make them aware they then remember that in 2014 the software update can't be downloaded of a link so they send a USB to my dealer. That USB never makes it there. So I the 23rd they send another on rush. It gets there on the 25th. So it took 18 days for me to get my valves replaced. I took the boat out yesterday valves work great the boat turned great for about 2hrs before it started rattling again. I still have the issue with the cats. And how it's also happening in neutral. Not sure what to do next my boat is always in the shop, I don't think it's fair the pay that much for a boat and its problem after problem. And my rudder is out of line again.
  10. Centurion is fastest growing among towboat brands Merced, CA JUNE 18, 2014; As of March 2014, Centurion Boats posted a 61% increase in sales according to Statistical Surveys Inc., the most reliable source for tracking new boat sales in the United States. In the first quarter, Centurion posted the highest percent increase among all towboat brands and a full 6% ahead of the next closest competitor. Bryan Holland, Vice President of Worldwide Sales said, “We are very pleased with our sales team’s efforts but the innovations in the 2014 product have made it easier than ever to get new boats placed. The CATS and RAMFILL systems have consumers and dealers alike clamoring for more information about Centurion. It’s a real testament to the high-quality production and significant innovations Centurion is offering now.” As the economy recovers and the people everywhere are beginning to see their personal wealth increase, Centurion, traditionally a smaller market-share holder, is poised for big growth. Bryan Holland went on to say, “We have been opening new dealerships everywhere. It seems like high value dealers are starting to figure out that the towboat business is a good business. Also, this model year we were the first to offer a five-year warranty, something that only one other boat builder is currently doing. This has helped us close a lot deals because it shows the customer that Centurion is ready to back the boat 100% allowing the purchaser peace of mind they’ve never had before.” In the 2014 model year, Centurion reintroduced two impressive innovations. The first was called CATS for Centurion Articulating Tracking System. The CATS system allows the operator to deflect the bow slightly changing the position of the hull for precise displacement providing adjustability and wake shaping. For the first time in wakeboarding towboat history, wakes can be cleaned up instantly without moving people, gear or ballast. For wake surfing, complete control of the face of the wave, direction of power and overall wave shaping is now possible. The second innovation is RAMFILL technology boasting the largest capacity ballast in the industry and the quickest filling system without pumps or sacs. This technology leaves more time for watersports and less time for fidgeting with one’s boat. RAMFILL has been raved about all over the world. Corey Marotta, Vice President of Sales & Marketing of Alliance Multimedia said “RAMFILL is the most efficient way to put a massive amount of water in the quickest time frame to date.” Todd Gaughan, Vice President of Marketing for Centurion said, “Whether you’re a wake surfer, wakeboarder or slalom skier, our R&D team has done an outstanding job producing the best boat in the watersports category. Slalom skiers everywhere regard the Carbon Pro as the very best tournament towboat and now the FX and SV series are getting the same reviews for wake surfing and wakeboarding fans. It’s an exciting time to be with Centurion and the sales report puts an exclamation point on it!” Statistical Surveys, Inc. was founded in 1958 to produce market share data reports for the marine, manufactured housing and recreational vehicle industries.
