Like to ask a couple of questions? <BR> <BR>Do they still have the hump in the middle of the engine cover? <BR> <BR>Hard to tell by the picture on the Sanger website but is there enough freeboard to prevent rollers from coming over the side or bow? <BR> <BR>With a 1,000 lbs of ballast do you get a descent wake? <BR> <BR>Thanks

walt 12-21-2007 12:51 PM

If you get the 330 HP Black Scorpion engine I don't think there is a hump. <BR> <BR>I run a lot more than 1000 pounds without problems.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/529301.jpg" alt="Upload">

No hump on my '99 w/Black Scorpion <BR> <BR>I've never swamped mine, although a buddy driving it once took some water over the bow. (After a quick lesson on what not to do, he was fine.) <BR> <BR>Personally, I've always preferred low freeboard boats. One of many reasons I own a Sanger. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

I wouldn't call it a hump but the aft deck is not completely flat (higher in the middle)as compared to a v215 or larger. <BR>I was surprised at the wake with 1000lbs ballast. <BR> <BR>I agree with Rio low freeboard=sexy

sanger 12-21-2007 4:52 PM

Thanks guys. The LA boat show is next month and I'll be able to check them out in person.

ralph 12-21-2007 7:21 PM

Low is sexy. The V210 is surprisingly dry even when slammed down, it has a unique way of rocking around with wakes which keeps the water at bay. We regularly run 2000 pounds and can't remember the last time we took a wave in, we use the bow cover which helps as well. You do have to know how to drive though, powering around at 7-10 mph causes chest high rollers which would swamp anything. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/529407.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/529408.jpg" alt="Upload">

Oh, and we have the 350mag motor so the deck is humped, I like the way it looks but a flat deck would be more practical. The Black scorp motor allows a flatter deck but its not completely flat. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/529412.jpg" alt="Upload">

Darren great pics!

rio_sanger 12-21-2007 11:05 PM

This shows the "no hump" sunpad on the 330 Black Scorpion... <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/529447.jpg" alt="Upload">

I surf behind a V210 with around 1,500 lbs of ballast and it works fine. The driver just has to be careful not to stop too quick if the rider falls, or water will come over the back. As far as the hump goes I like it. My boat doesn't look like all the other ones out there. <BR>Sue <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/529897.jpg" alt="Upload">

whitten24 12-25-2007 2:11 PM

Have 05 V210 and run about 1200# ballast and have had no problems...but u do have to know how to drive right...but thats the sick part about sangers are how sleek they are...the wake is awesome...buddy has an 06 x-2 and my sanger wake is bigger and is lot more fun to ride behind...

kcampos 12-26-2007 9:35 AM

Kind of off the topic but does anyone surfing behind a sanger V210 use a F.A.E. Fresh Air Exhaust? If not do you ever feel any of the effects of carbon monoxide. Headaches, dizzyness anything?

malibu 12-26-2007 6:45 PM

Ken, I don't have a F.A.E. on my V210. I surf behind it a lot and haven't ever noticed a headache or dizziness. I have heard good things about the F.A.E though.

rio_sanger 12-27-2007 8:12 AM

Ken, If we're not Wakeboarding behind ours, we are surfing or skating, and no one has gotten dizzy or headaches. <BR> But that's kind of like saying "I don't wear a vest, and I'm still alive" <BR>I think F.A.E.s are a good saftey idea, especially if you surf alot for long periods of time.

sanger 01-01-2008 8:01 PM

Michael when you say your Sanger wake is bigger than the X2 is that when wakeboarding or wakesurfing or both?

rallyart 01-01-2008 9:31 PM

With the FAE on you can talk to the surfer.

elduche 01-08-2008 9:02 AM

here is a picture of the the back deck on a 2006 v210 with the black scorpion engine. the sides slope down but the middle deck is completely flat. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/533125.jpg" alt="Upload">

toesideturtle 01-08-2008 4:50 PM

For you Sanger guys.....which boat puts out a bigger wake? the 215 or the 210 <BR> <BR>Thanks

Hmm! <BR> <BR>I will have to think about that one and get back to you <BR> <BR>215

ttrigo 01-08-2008 6:08 PM

Chuck - you looking for a new boat?

rio_sanger 01-08-2008 6:19 PM

Without ballast, I would say hands down 210, and not because I have one, but the 90" beam and low freeboard takes very little to sink 'er down. With ballast and how much? <BR> ...I don't want to get into that pissing contest.

01-08-2008 6:23 PM

I remeber this argument getting NASTY not long ago. Hey Richard, show the pics of your 215 slammed, and the wake....biggest 215 wake pic I have seen.

rio_sanger 01-08-2008 9:23 PM

My boat has no factory ballast, this shot is with a half full fatsac on the port side to make up for the drivers' weight, and no one else in the boat... <BR> <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/533340.jpg" alt="Upload">

toesideturtle 01-09-2008 1:32 PM

thomas <BR>thinking about it

detonate69 01-09-2008 5:48 PM

V210 throw a good wake as do V215's. The pic in my profile is from behind a 2004 V210, Factory ballast with 8 people in the boat from what I remember. It was a great wake and boosted you well.

wake_upppp 01-09-2008 7:06 PM

Both will throw a great wake, but the V210 will do it with less ballast and less fuel used, and still handle like a champ. The V210 is narrower, and like chris said, narrower boats require less weight. Another example of this is the SAN 210. Low freeboard is really only an issue if the driver is in-experienced. And yes Gary, you can get a decent wake with 1000lbs., depending on the speed you ride at.

sanger 01-09-2008 8:57 PM

And what speed would that be?

ccwhite 01-10-2008 5:55 AM

The 210 is narrow and steep while the 215 is wider and rampy. For quick thinking the 210 is like a SAN 210 and the 215 is very close to a Malibu

sanger 01-10-2008 8:11 AM

Steep is good for us guys with poor technique <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>.

wake_upppp 01-10-2008 6:40 PM

Gary, I would say in the 20 to 22 range...
