|Just picked up the new demo boat and wanted to share some pics. |
2009 Tige RZ2 black and red. We added some custom gel coat with black accents inset on the front vents and black doors for the rear transom.
Custom trailer by Boat Mate. Dual axle with 18 inch black Ballistic wheels with red accents. Trailer is all black with LED running lights, LED landing strip lights that turn on when in the water.
Wrap was designed by me and Mario from Wake Graphics out of Austin. Wake Graphics laid the wrap last week at the Tige factory.
System is factory Tige Wet Sounds system with additional pair of XS-650 and WS-420 for now. We have big plans as I am sure you can imagine for the stereo. So those pictures will come once we get the full blown system in and the LED lighting etc..But that is going to take some time!
Boat came out great. Let me know what ya'll think.
|Damn Tim that boat is insane. How crazy will the stereo be in this one?|
|Tim, great looking boat! |
What are the plans for this boat, and where will it be kept? Wouldn't mind taking a look in person.
|I am in love. Sweet wrap! I can't wait to see how you get some serious noise on that tower. |
That looks terrific!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|Yeah, its really not working Tim, no style there. But I feel bad so I'll swap you even for my '05 22i. |
Let me know.
|Sick boat Tim!|
Got some big plans for the system. Working on the tower and a way to get a pair of 485 in the factory locations.
James, if you are ever in Texas, hit me up. We are usually at all the Texas events.
|Tim sick boat man I love it. Also Im in love with your truck. Im currently lookin for an 08 or 09 f250 to look just like yours. It looks so badass with the boats youve had behind it. |
Keep it up man.
|It is awesome, I don't normally like that Tower, but the way it sits on that boat looks amazing. I love the red/black scheme, the wrap is awesome. |
Very nice boat, great job. Thanks for sharing.
|wicked awsome boat! One of the best I have seen.|
|Tim: The new boat looks great, Colors are Awesome When are you dropping off for the stereo?|
|Tim,very nice!!! awesome color choice as I am a big fan of the red/black/white boats!|
|such a dope boat. |
Im happy to see the progression of wetsounds even just off the wakeworld discussion boards alone.
good stuff, love what youre doing man
|Tim, unbelievable as always. Great wrap.|
|The boat is AMAZING! Can't wait to see the stereo setup!|
|TIGE PRIDE!!!!!!!!!!! |

|One of the best looking boats to date!! |

|IMO best looking boat/trailer combo I have seen.. I bet it even looks more sick in person|
|pimp, thats all i got, pimp. trailer is looking so sick too. now you need to murder out the wheels on the on your truck.|
|effing dope! |
one of the sickest looking trailer/boat's ive seen.. the tower is looking a little bare......for now
|That is sick. The gel around the vents looks great. Those trailer rims are pretty trick too.|
|I love it.|
|Tim, your other boat took some time for me to take a liking to and I'm thinking this boat is no different. Definitely different. Question is, will it be louder than the X-Star Chucktronics did up not too long ago out here in Cali. Sound off????|
|Like it more than the old one. Good pick.|
|unreal boat. Absolutely sick!!!|
|New boat looks awesome. Luv the red/black!|
|Any pics of your Tige tat? j/k |
Crazy boat!! Love the drink holder on the transom, great idea for the R.B.!
|Twitch, truck is for sale!! I have had it for sale for about a month. I am wanting to build a 09 murdered out. As I think that will match the boat. So if i sell it, truck will match even better. Wake Graphics wants to wrap the truck and get the rims powder coated black. But being my daily driver. Might scare the neighbors! |
Grant, you will have to come down to Austin for the stereo install help LOL. We can use all the help we can get.
Thanks to everyone for the comments.
Owen at Boat Mate does incredible work. We looked everywhere trying to find the right rims. He was going to custom paint some for me. Then the ones we found were discontinued. So we looked and looked and I found these. Ballistic Off Road wheels. But they are 6 lug. We both loved them, so he made one off axles just to get these wheels to fit.
So huge props to Owen at Boat Mate.
And huge props to Mario at Wake Graphics. He put up with me changing the design many times. I think we were at 17 renderings.
And of course HUGE props to the guys at Tige. The fit and finish on this boat is perfect. And the lines on the RZ and the new tower are killer. Very sharp and angular. Looks very tough.
If anyone sees the boat around, just wave and flag me down. Happy to let you check it out or give you a pull.
Only dropped in the water once last weekend and surfed it. Huge surf wave without a ton of work. 900 pound Factory ballast with 400 pounds pop bags spread 240 surf side and 160 opposite side, plus a sack in the surf side rear locker, 750 pound bag but could only fill to about 500. And 4 in the boat and it was nice and big. Was really happy that it took about 10 minutes and we were on our way. I think with even more weight, it will only get better.
Can't comment on the wakeboard wake yet as I still can't ride after my tendon injury so i will be left surfing for a while but I will get some of the austin crew out behind it and get some wake pics as well.
|Wow Wow Wow!!!|
|Tim, why did you down size from an RZ4 to an RZ2? |
I think you will find that the RZ2 will maneuver a little better than the RZ4 but it will be interesting how much better it does maneuver. Let us know.
|I loved the RZ4. And it could seat 17 which we had done a few times. But mainly we have 6 people. So RZ2 seems to fit what we do better. Also at shows. It was always fun getting a 24 foot boat on triple axle trailer into a booth. You should have seen the RZ4 trying to get to our booth at the CES show in vegas. It was a site to see. We had to move 3 peoples booths to get it into our spot. RZ2 will fit much better! |
Also, we have been surfing more and more. Too many injuries. And the RZ2 will surf with less weight needed. The RZ4 surfs like a monster but the boat is so big, needed a lot of weight to sink it down.
|Absolutely sick boat Tim! I'll have to check it out when I come to Austin this summer.|
|Nice work Tim, she's done up super right. I'm stoked to see what you guys do with the system I'm sure a lot of hard work will go into that. Kudos.|
|I'm going to say this must be the best boat setup i've ever seen.|
|let me know when you're ready to sell it and i'll take it|
|Tim.....you ba$tard! |
That boat is wicked.
|Very nice! Now, get some dealers in south Louisiana!|
|Awesome boat! Can't wait to see it on Lake Austin!|
|Sickest boat/trailer setup I've ever seen! Awesome!|
|it looks angry|
|^^^^Texas residence be afraid, very afraid. Tim you need a big sticker on that thing that says "Danger hearing damage within 100 yards". |
This is the nicest one yet.
|THAT's SICK!!!! |
that's even sicker then the last one :D
gratz tim keep them sick boats up
|This is one of the VERY FEW examples of style and individuality I have ever seen on a boat.|
|Bitchin' setup Tim. Hope to see the boat when we are in Texas.|
|Thanks Tim for all your props in this thread. We here at http://www.wakegraphics.com (design team, video team, and installers) were excited to be a part of this Tige - Wet Sounds project. Lots of positive remarks make us feel quite happy with the end result. |
What was unique about this installation? The wrap was installed prior to any decals, moldings, docking lights were mounted. Super clean install. The WG-Tige-WS video is about 80% complete and I will post that once it's finalized on our website.
Wake Graphics is also pleased to announce that we are currently working on a Tige Boat Wrap Program that will be offered five weeks. Keep your eyes peeled for the new Wake Graphics website and cool wrap designs that will be offered on the 2010 Tige Models.
Give us a call or email us if you have any questions regarding boat wraps.
Thank you Wet Sounds (Tim),
Thank you Tige (Charlie, Danny, Rick & Tony),
Thank you Wake Graphics (Mark, Matt, Jeff and JD)
See you at a lake near you.
|Seen the Tige in person at the Secret Spot "Brazos" and its sick|
|Not my cup of tea as I like lighter colors, but I love most boats that are wrapped. I would like to see it with the windows tinted dark.|
|That wrap is insane! Sick ride.|
|The more I look at this boat the more I realize how well the design of that tower goes with the lines of the boat. Looks great!|
|I agree w/ you Roddy. |
The Alpha Z's fit the Z1's and the RZ's angular styles perfectly.
It does not however, flow so well w/ the Ve series boats.
|Pretty sick, saw it at Tx Wakesurf Comp last weekend!|
|I can't tell what is louder - the (future) stereo, or the wrap! That thing will definately be an attention grabber! The color combo is sick, especially on the interior. Nice!|
|Tim says the windows are already tinted just not pictured. |
Tim, anything custom with this motor like the last one?
|I will get pics with the tinted window soon. |
evilone, Tige's new engines are PCM. So went with the factory PCM 343
|Gotcha, I know on the RZ4 you had it custom painted white and went with the big motor. Wasn't sure if you had a candy apple metallic ZR-409 or something.|
|LOL. I like your style. Candy Apple Metallic. Hmmm. Maybe next one! |
With those graphics and color scheme, I can't imagine a better platform for a demo boat. Very, very, very nice job!!! What a great opportunity to introduce some of those graphical elements into the stereo installation.
|Wow that is sick looking. Congrats!|
|Dave, the next Wakeworld boat should get hooked up with some sort of wrap like this, only in blue and black!|
|Tim- Awesome boat! Well we ever get to use it as a demo here in Nor Cal? JK |
|Sick graphics and rimz|
|Awesome boat....best looking wrap I have ever seen. |
Now, tint the windows!
|Thanks to all. window already tinted! Tinted it 2 days after I picked it up but these pics were taken at Tige the day we finished the boat and wrap. |
I plan on getting some pics on the water soon and some with the tint. It looks really sweet on the water.
Scott, anytime you want to come pick it up, it's yours!
I bet you wont wrap the 485's that your not going to put on the tower.
|From what we understand, he is trying to get two 485's on that tower Jacob |
That sounds like a challenge!!
Let me know when you want to wrap those tower speakers and we will get that done for you ASAP.
Challenge not an option here!
|haha, look what i started. |
|Tim that boat is ridiculous. That wrap is defiantly the best one I have seen.|
