so hopefully we can be upgrading our boat before next season(long time)and if been doing a lot of research and have learned almost every thing i need to know about them except one crucial thing draft. for some reason boat companys hide this even wakeboarding mag wont tell you the draft. we go to a very shallow river and i know big v-drives fit but i would like to know the draft on some boats. heres the list <BR>1 09 tige rz2 <BR>2 09 epic 23v <BR>3 09 tige z1 <BR>4 09 X-star <BR>5 09 supreme 226 <BR>6 09 axis <BR>7 09 vlx <BR>8 09 supra 22v <BR>9 09 X-15 <BR>10 09 tige 22ve <BR>11 09 moomba xlv <BR>12 09 moomba lsv <BR>13 00 tige 21i(my current boat for comparison) <BR> <BR>sorry if i sound demanding thanks for any help

Mobius lsv is 24", xlv is 26", launch 22ssv is 25". Not sure about the rest.

does anyone know.

pretty sure most/all of the dealer websites have them listed under the specs.

Xstar is 32" midship and 28" stern. We have run ours aground a few times

i still think it is absolutely ridiculous that tige's website wont say their boats draft. like i know its a minor problem but it just puts me 1 step farther away from tige.

Yeah thats a good reason to be 1 step further from buying any wakeboat.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Seeing that they are all generally within inches of each other. <BR> <BR>I guess if your home lake/river is on average 3 feet deep I can see your concern.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>

Axis A22- 27" draft

1. These wake boats don't vary much more than a few inches of each other <BR> <BR>2. Measurement is an approximation anyway. The salinity of the water has a huge impact on Draft. What if you have 4 people in the boat vs 1 vs 10?

Hey man just stop by your local dealers or call them. Your looking at boats that range from 40k to 90k I gotta think you can slim it down to where your real number is to about 5 boats or less. Call your local dealer he or she will help you!!!!

neneman54 07-23-2009 11:20 AM

good point tampa but since it could be several month away from when we buy. those dealers will be on me like flys on $H!+. <BR> <BR>1 09 tige rz2 ??? <BR>2 09 epic 23v ??? <BR>3 09 tige z1 ??? <BR>4 09 X-star 28in <BR>5 09 supreme 226 ??? <BR>6 09 axis 27in <BR>7 09 vlx 24in <BR>8 09 supra 22v 25in <BR>9 09 X-15 26.5in <BR>10 09 tige 22ve ??? <BR>11 09 moomba xlv 26 <BR>12 09 moomba lsv 24 <BR>13 00 tige 21i(my current boat for comparison) ??? <BR> <BR>and yes there are some extremely sketchy spots on my river especially earlier in the day when the water isn't all the way in.

mars 07-23-2009 2:10 PM

if your river is sketchy plan on hitting regardless of draft. invest in spare props. <BR>For a quick rule of thumb look at the transom, the deeper the V, the deeper the draft. the heavier deeper V boats get into the 30 inch range, sometimes more. <BR>You will need to empty ballast, drop speed, and put peeps in the bow when traversing shoals. Are they marked? <BR>Also remember your depth sounder will have trouble when the water is very shallow.

neneman54 07-23-2009 2:31 PM

thats why im asking for draft because i want optimal wake with least draft and we have an extra prop
