After test driving most of the end of summer, and some of the fall, and researching, and dreaming forever, we finally got our boat. Just spent 2 hours sitting in it, listening to tunes in our garage, as it dumped snow outside lol!!! The pic is from when we test drove it in Aug.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/747309.jpg" alt="Upload">

have fun with that bad boy

cjh1669 11-15-2009 8:51 PM

It's a VTX. IT's already been a long couple days. Spent far too much time sitting in it waiting lol

Nice boat! <BR> <BR>I've spent many hours drinking beer in the boat in our storage unit waiting for rain to stop. Good times! <BR> <BR>Of course we don't have to wait out snow down here in Texas. I'd go crazy with that baby in the garage all winter! <BR> <BR>Aaron in Austin

Chris, <BR> <BR>That's the best part, building up that excitement for the next summer. Congratulations and best of luck keeping that thing winterized and out of the water ;)

Chris, <BR>Great looking boat and congrats! I remember when we brought our baby home. My bro and I sat in it all night waiting for sunrise so we can take it out. One of the best feelings in the world. <BR>Man, it's gonna be a long winter for you. lol <BR>Congrats again.

Very nice

cjh1669 11-16-2009 9:50 AM

I make out of the way trips through the garage on my way n and out just to walk by it. Should have seen what a pain it was to get in there.

Congrats Chris..... I bought a leftover '08 VTX this past spring and absolutely love it... If you're into surfing pick up a couple fat sacs for the rear locker/seat.... Nothing beats finally having that new rig sitting on your own property! Enjoy..

cjh1669 11-16-2009 11:08 AM

Chad do you have weight in the bow? <BR> <BR>I'm thinking about piggy backing some 400lbs sacks in the back lockers. <BR> <BR>I also need to get a sub and amp for it.

Congrats brother and thanks. <BR> <BR>Tommy

cjh1669 11-16-2009 3:18 PM

Thank you , I left a message for you at the shop. Brain did a terrific job, and we really appreciate the service. Now I just have to schedule a de-winterizing for early april.

Chris, <BR> I do have stock ballast in the bow, wake hull and power wedge. I picked up 2 fly high X2 sacs and they make a huge difference for getting a really nice surf wake. Stock ballast is more then enough for my wakeboarding ability right now. I think the x2's are 450lbs, They fit the rear locker with a little space to spare. Beauty of a 20' boat is it doesn't take a bunch of weight to get a great wake. I just used the tsunami pump this summer and was pleasantly surprised with how quickly it filled and emptied the sac's.....Nice colour combo on your boat

cjh1669 11-16-2009 5:22 PM

I'm thinking of getting a tsunami pump and 300lbs bag for up front. How much room do the fat sacks leave you? <BR> <BR>Thanks, yeah I love the color scheme.

koop 11-17-2009 7:32 AM

The X-2 sac's 450lbs(I think) leave enough room you're not worried about them being squished or rubbing on anything. You could probably get a little bit bigger sac and let it fill and form to the locker? I guess the VTX locker is a little bigger than the X-2 locker? The reason I got the x-2 sac's was because there were 2 450lbs sac's, as apposed to 1 fly high that was a little bit bigger, for roughly the same price. The 2 sac's give me a few more option's for weight placement depending who's with us for surfing.
