  1. Congratulations!!! Regards,
  2. Lake/River anchor: It's an anchor shaped like a mushroom which doesn't have cleats like the typical fluke shaped anchors - meant simply for holding a position when there's not a lot of waves on a lake or river (e.g., coves).
  3. My local dealer had the bow anchor in stock - not overly expensive. I also keep a "lake anchor" in the rear storage compartment for when I want be stationary in a cove.
  4. Fgeo14 - Bernard's Landing is an excellent place - well maintained and a good restaurant on property. We've stayed there a number of times. The Northshore area is great as it has easy access to Westlake Corner and Hardy when not on the water (e.g., Kroger, cinema, Sunken City Brewery) Across the lake southward towards Union Hall and the Edge Water is very nice too, but not enough stores and restaurants for my family. We tend to stay south of the bridge at Moneta. Scott1971 - my H2O has the same color scheme as the boat in your avitar picture
  5. I have '21 Deluxe H2O with the 5.0 engine & wake tower. We've spent almost every weekend on the boat over the last two summers. We haven't had any issues skiing or wake boarding (albeit we're not super aggressive when we ski or wake board). The tower has worked well for wake boarding. Aside from our family, I've had my son and five other teenage boys on-board skiing/wake boarding - one right after the other without a performance issue from the boat. However trying to deep water start a slalom skier was challenging for one of the larger boys - likely a skier issue more than the boat. For us the price point compared to all that a H2O offers is the perfect match for a family activity during the months of June -September. Can't say enough good things about the H2O.
  6. Had the system installed and sounds great. Also decided to upgrade the receiver - went with a Kenwood KMR-D768BT. The only issue so far is that the receiver can sometimes "glitch/stumble" in Bluetooth mode if the Iphone is in the person's pocket at the stern. Not sure there's a fix for that other than to place the Iphone somewhere else.
  7. Bought a H2O a couple of years ago - really enjoying it! Recently during a "boating" vacation, my kids asked if I would have tower speakers installed. Currently we have the stock audio system. Before I reach out to my dealer for options, I thought I would gather some information via the owners forum. Could anyone make a suggestion as to a good - moderately priced system (e.g., brand of speakers and the needed components - amps??)? Also, has anyone had tower speakers installed on their H2O? Where were the speakers installed so as not to interfere with the tower bimini? Thank you in advance for any suggestions or guidance you have to offer. Regards,
  8. Awesome - thanks for your replies Also, the M600/6 I am told is for the tower and cabin speakers. The M200/2 is for the subwoofer, Have a great week.
  9. Thank you for the quick reply - based out of the Triad, but at least twice a month we trailer to lakes somewhere in a sixty-five mile radius (e.g., western Raleigh area, the Northeast Charlotte area or southwestern VA: SML). Really adds a lot of fun being on different lakes.
  10. Considering going with the following set up: Replace cabin speakers with JL Audio MX650-CCX-SG Install JL Audio M600/6 -6 channel D system marine amplifier and a JL Audio M200/2-channel D full-range marine amplifier Install JL Audio M10IB5-SG 10" marine subwoofer Install JL Audio MX770-Etxv3-SG 7.7 inch tower speakers Any thoughts as to the above set up? Regards, NC-H2O
  11. Thank you for the information and quick reply. Regards,
  12. My family and I spent last week at SML - weather was awesome! Fortunately the water was only rough on the day we arrived and on the day we left. We prefer the Westlake Corners to Moneta bridge section given the convenience of groceries, restaurants and even a microbrewery or if the weather is bad we drive to Roanoke.
  13. We're focusing on being able to listen to music while behind the boat - anchored in a cove and also maybe having a little more sound while underway (not a fan of disturbing others with my music whether I am on a boat or a motorcycle). I see some boats that have four speakers on the tower and others that have just two. I assume that I can use my stock radio (the kid's Bluetooth their music from the phones) and therefore need an amp and speakers? Again, really don't know anything about sound systems so any guidance is useful. Thanks
