Here is a picture of my new Pro V. It goes in for all the upgrades today and should take delivery on it in a week in a half. We test drove one at Larsons and we were really impressed with the way this V-drive handled in the turns and through the wake. We also loved the room in it for our young ones.
A little different

Congrats! Great looking boat with an original color scheme. The white tower is a nice touch.

sweet! I've never seen the flame graphics before. Guessing that was custom. We bought our 04 in November and cant wait to finish breaking it in.

congrats

Mike, I work for Columbia Mechanical in S.F. Which branch are you at?

Kenneth, I guess Calabria makes the flames for their team riders and when the boys at Larsons saw one they had them make two for them to sell.
One red one and one Orange one.

Whirlybird,

JZwake,

I think it would be tough to book a trip on it.
Nice to hear from a UA brother from across the land.

Jay, I think there is not that many flame Calabria boats out there. I never ordered any, it just was not working for me. Mybe someone at the factory will say how many flames they made. I think it was a Larson only deal. Injoy your new boat

That color is going to be so dated in a few years....got to think ahead when you order somthing like that....especially orange with flames....haha

Ryan, why are you going to bag on the color of his boat? I think it looks smooth Jay...

Congratulations on your purchase!

Thanks Oscar,

I Think it is going to go great with my wifes orange bikini and I think its going to take little more than a few years for that to go out of style.\clipart{proud}

Nice looking boat, When will you be able to try it out?
 
By Jay Reese (jayreese) on Wednesday, February 18, 2004 - 4:26 pm:    Edit Post Delete Post
Richard B. I pick her up on Friday and will take her on the water Sunday (weather permitting)
I did drive a twin sister last saturday and just was completly amazed at how well the boat handled in the turns and through the double ups
and at 34mph it actually had avery skiable wake.
Thanks for the kind remarks

Kenneth as soon as I get her I'll post a picture of her with all the bells and whistles on

Jay

Congrats on a beautiful boat! The best toys are the ones you make your own.

I argued with CC for three months before they agreed to send my 04 SANTE without ANY graphics or tape.

Now the dealer thinks I'm nuts for considering having it re-painted.

Hopefully you got out this weekend, let us know how it was--still snowing in my part of the world.

Fred, You know the next picture i post on her will be Fri. night and you'll be in it as I'm shaking your hand and thanking you ( and the rest of the Larson's-Rancho Cordova staff) for the awesome deal, outstanding customer service, and ease of mind oh so smooth sale.

Dan I have a sneaky feeling it will be raining a little but hay boats are made to get wet, right?

Walt- I lived in santa rosa for 14 years before i came back to Lodi great town and only 15 minutes away from the smooth delta

Lodi CA? I have friends and family in Lodi, can you ride this time of year? What is water/air temp?
 
By Jay Reese (jayreese) on Thursday, February 19, 2004 - 6:31 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
Dan,
Its definatly a dry suit thing if you want ride at this time of the year and there is a lot of junk in the water like wood debris(telephone poles and such) but there are a few hard core guys who do it. I like to wait till April to actually get the water.

 
By Dan (dfish) on Thursday, February 19, 2004 - 6:20 pm:    Edit Post Delete Post
I used to adhere to the 80 F. rule. If the water plus air temp = 80 F. I am on the water. As I get older it is up to 120 F. Right now its 62 F.

Thanks for letting us guys in the frozen tundra to daydream a little. Please let us know when you take the new baby out.

Dan Its amazing how tolerance for cold gets smaller as your age gets bigger. My kids could be blue and swim all day.
 
By Levi Cress (levi) on Friday, February 20, 2004 - 9:55 am:    Edit Post Delete Post
Dan,

It is around the 100 to 110 temp now around the Disco Bay area. The water is around high 40's to 50 degrees...and we've had a some days climb up to around 60 degrees. There is some nasty debris now also..so you have to be on your toes and watching. But there can always be that log just below the surface. It is nice to get your boat out though and not have it sit all winter! I'm using a drysuit..but I know several people that go in a full wetsuit and don't seem to mind it......
