    Not looking good for us were already soaked and they calling for 6-10 inches more on top of the rain we already got over the last 6 days. Upside lakes are getting full down side boating season is all but over for most of us here.

    Wake surfing with an I/O?

    Chaparral claims you can wakesurf with the Xtreme series sunesta's ie: 224,244,264,284 and I do think there are a few people on here that have or do with them, that is the only stern drive other than Bryant's 233x wake/surf with volvo's forward prop system that claim to be " safe " to wakesurf with. my opinion use your friends boats that were designed for that and don't chance it.

    waketower decisions

    where my issue falls is getting a bank to finance a boat of 40k-50k ish for 15-20yr at most 5% down to keep me in budget, it's hard to find. even with really good credit.

    Truly I see your point and I love the looks on the xtreme's but I cant fit that payment into the budget with paying for the wife's college and soon to have one child going into college, the 1-2k for the tower is my logical answer at the moment. I just wanting to get the most fun out of what I have without having to bum on my friends wakesetter for more than wake surfing.

    came across this company today and I like the looks of this tower. Has anyone heard or had any dealings with them and their products. http://fluidcoreusa.com/fcx-forward-facing-wakeboard-tower-2-5-tube

    Asked 1000 times I'm sure... prop question

    I changed props on my 190 w 4.3 190hp from a 3 blade 21in to a 4 blade 19in I lost about 5mph top end but gained bottom/mid range torqe for the extra pulling power and works great

    H2O 19 or 21

    I wish Chap would make an ESP on the H2O series a standard or additional option the integrated platform isn't long enough, sure would make them a bit more appealing and safe.

    I like the MTK my only concern with it is the 18in width between the mounts and the amount of hull stress even with solid backing

    Truly protecting vinyl

    I have used Lexol products for years in the automotive industry so I use Vinylex protectant it works good to keep all the vinyl from drying out.

    My chappy isn't in the photo but nothing beats cool air, sunsets, and a campfire on the lake.

    waketower decisions

    Yeah I know to well this want,want to need issue, but now I am at a crossroad of wake tower or sell the chap and buy a v-drive wake/surf boat because my kids now want to wakesurf & wakeboard and thats not a safe behind a I/O and I will not attempt it.
