  1. 2500K??????? Yikes!!!!
  2. Ever sheared 6 lug studs and have a wheel fall off of a single axel trailer holding a 4500#+ boat 5 hours away from home only to have a have a homeless 70 yo veteran with a car full tools, that was living in the park that you limped your boat into on the brake rotor, spend 5 hours with you in the 105 degree heat helping you pull the hub, hammer the sheared lug studs out, hammer new ones in and rebuild the bearings? Never again.
  3. Fair enough BUT you will be VERY hard pressed to find a boat with a FFD that is no labeled with "Surf" on the boat or part of the FFD drive package.
  4. Care to clarify? Who said anything about a FFD being more dangerous than a standard stern drive?
  5. I have no idea what you are saying here.
  6. I don't think the FFD is more dangerous than an inboard. People have been surfing inboards for 15 years.
  7. Many large boat manufacturers(Bryant, Cobalt, Chaparral) are using the FFD with other adjuncts such as Malibu's Surf Gate and trim tabs and selling/marketing as Surf boats. I am not saying that it is wrong but your article is from 2014 with updates through 2015.
  8. Boat is essentially 2 years old..
  9. The wedge will probably help you the most.
  10. Forward facing lower unit. Prop is on the front of the drive. Check out the video.
  11. http://www.boattest.com/review/chaparral/3620_227-ssx-surf Is this what you are trying to link? This is a different world than the chap surf jet boats. I did find the "as good, if not better, than dedicated surf-boats" comical.
  12. Never owned an armada in my life. I did have a 2007 Titan. I was just curious what engine Ford you had that was hinting for gears.. my EB is almost always in 5/6 on the highway.
  13. What motor is in your F150?
  14. Been in a comparable Chevy, Dodge or Toyota?
  15. Aside from the ride and my concerns about longevity and reliability, it's an awesome truck. It truly tows like a dream compared to NA V8's.
