|I am looking at getting a 2003 direct drive supra lanch ss . What would the wake be like on this boat is it comparable to a v-drive or does the wake suck. let me know if this boat would be ok for wakeboarding or is it more of a ski boat.|
|The 22ss is the same hull as |
The old 22SSV. The v drive wake was killer so with a little extra
Rear weight the wake should be nice.
|if u weight it right the wake will be great.|
|I have a friend who has one and it's a great ski wake but he has no problem with adding rear weight for boarding. He also surfs behind it. Nice boat.|
|Im not sure about the ss hull but the ls hull is like my old 2000 supra launch dd and it has a bad ass wake! |
so i assume the wake will be nice if you figure out the weighting for it..
|You can definitely weight it right and have a great wake. Like Jon said it is the same wake as the Pre 07 22SSV except just with a direct drive. Throw a couple 450Lb sacks on either side of the engine or even bigger and another one by your back seat. Fill the stock ballast and you will be pretty good...|
|That hull produced one of the biggest cleanest wakes I have ever ridden. Plus for me it had a great shape.|
|I have a 2000 DD Launch I run 1000 in bow and around 700 in stern. Wake is huge and clean, good for surfing and wakeboarding I love it. Gas is not that great though about 4.25 an hour with the 325 assault. I will try to dig up some pics.|

"Gas is not that great though about 4.25 an hour with the 325 assault."
Actually Luke, that's pretty respectable fuel consumption. I'm right around 4.5 - 5 gph with a 330 Black Scorpion.
I've heard of some wakeboats burning as much as 7 - 8 gph ...ouch!
|Yea i run 1000 in bow and 1300/1400 in back! my gas mileage isn as great but wake is awesome |
|Bill I bet that wake rocks. If you did not reprop you need to.|
|chris i cant remember the eact prop repitch but they took my 13x13 OJ and cut it down to a 13x11.5 i think..its a DD so it plains out easier then a Vdrive since the motors not set all the way back,it think |
|i used to regularly ride behing my folks 2002 launch sl direct drive and i still love that wake. if you have a few people you can get away with stock ballast plus a 450 in the back and a 450 in the walk thru and make a great clean wake. to really get it huge you can add 2 more sacks, one on each side of the engine box. wake has an awesome shape and is adjustable if you have the wake plate.|
|What is a good four blade prop for these boats?|
|Luke, the best 4 blade for this boat is a 3 blade. |

|Ok ok ok ok I have an 87 Supra SunSport DD and it is the same prop stock is a 13x13, I am using a 13x12 now. I called OJ and they said they had a new prop for us that is 13.25 x 10.5. 3-blade only. They want $420 for a new one that is gonna HURT!!! |
Bill lets see some more pics!
|I have a brand new oj 13 x 11.5 that I would sale for 200 plus shipping if it help anyone.|
|Doh that would be awesome but do you think it is enough improvement over a 13x12???????? I was gonna go 13.25x10.5.|
