So, we have a Sea Ray Sundancer 240 (1996 I/O), and turns out that it's awesome for wakeboarding. We just got the trim setting right the other day, and the wake is freaking incredible. Here, I've been riding behind this little P.O.S deckboat that we have, when it turns out we have a boat that throws a peaky wake that just happens to be massive. So we just pulled the trigger on a Monster Tower for the thing, which should be here next week. I'm so stoked about it.

I'll have some video later tonight to show the wake...

So who else here rides behind a cabin cruiser?

What kind of fuel consumtion does that cruiser have? Prob worth it if you get a BIG WAKE from it!

Decent. I haven't really checked it out. It's a 210 hp on a 4000 lb boat, so yeah. And apparently my mom doesnt know how to use a video camera, so no pictures or video of the wake for a while.

Is it a cabin or a deck?

Just watch out for that prop. You really don't want to fall forward on an I/O. Upload

Art im not really sure he could fall 75' forward while the boat is travelling 20+mph and hit the prop but he may be risking it

I misread it and thought it said Wake Surfing. My Bad.
Oh well, at least I got to post a fun GIF. Sorry Nick.

Lol, nice art. I've seen some people wakesurfing behind some I/O's, and even an outboard, and just shook my head in disappointment...

While technically its not a cabin cruiser, we were boarding behind my Cobalt 292 this last week. The wake had a little wash on it at 23, but we only had three people in the boat, so I don't know if it would have been better loaded down. The wake was very large and very, very wide, but you would expect that from a 8,000lbs boat.

Holy crap. That's a HUGE boat... I saw Man Overboard recently, and one of the guys was going out into the flats behind a boat like that. The wake was like, 20 feet wide, and completely washed out, but he was doing it. It was nuts.

Many, many years ago as a teen, we used to surf behind huge inboard sportfishers like Bertrams, Hatteras, etc.

Great surf wakes about 50-60 feet back of the boat, we could have a surfer on each side, since they were twin screws the wake was equally good port and starboard.

I thought the wake would be a lot more washed out than it was. It was actually pretty clean with just a little wash on the top. I have to say I liked it just as much, if not better than my old Xstar. It was very rampy and would just float you. Of course I am getting old.

210hp seems very underpowered for that size boat.
By Paul (psudy) on Tuesday, June 17, 2008 - 7:28 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
Its only 24ft, so a 210 I/O is probably fine.

I surf behind a 40 DA Sea Ray Great wave a pain in the butt when you fall
