-   -   Who is Aaron Rathy's new boat sponsor? (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=770244)

boomshot 01-21-2010 5:44 PM

Has this info been leaked or does someone need to come in and save us? I have my guesses, but I can't say for sure. I see signs. And it's not who we all think - MasterCraft (because of Nicola, and the fact that there's a MasterCraft logo in a couple of his newer videos). MasterCraft is a red herring in this plot I predict.

kcrider 01-21-2010 6:52 PM

Why because of Nicola?

wakeskierbrad 01-21-2010 6:59 PM

Just cuz Norbi is filming him behind Nicola's MC doesn't mean he gunna be sponsored by them. I'm sure he ride any chance he gets, doesn't matter who its behind!

xbones 01-21-2010 6:59 PM

Yeah... Rathy needs Nicola's help to get a boat sponsor <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>

01-21-2010 7:48 PM

Agreed. With his skills, he can take care of himself.

nsolis220 01-21-2010 7:56 PM

he is saying its not mastercraft. read more carefuly guys

alevitt 01-21-2010 8:26 PM

I don't think anyone knows what Red Herring means.

wakereviews 01-21-2010 8:31 PM

who's gonna leak it first?

jsweat 01-22-2010 12:05 AM

watch it be axis

behindtheboat 01-22-2010 5:44 AM

MC because of Nicola would prob actually work out. No need for a boat, just some money and perks and he uses hers. 2 for 1, and the top riders of both worlds. win win

lives2wake 01-22-2010 6:02 AM

But what does Red Herring mean? <BR> <BR>Surprised to see that he doesn't have a boat sponsor. He's an incredible wakeboarder but is that all it takes to represent a boat company?

mcook77 01-22-2010 6:40 AM

Red Herring - a deliberate attempt to divert attention

hawkeye7708 01-22-2010 7:11 AM

Elementary dear Watson!

Chris: I know. It's the only thing that keeps me coming back here.

andy_nintzel 01-22-2010 9:01 AM

Good one Chris!!

spencerwm 01-22-2010 10:34 AM

Watch it be Mastercraft but because of corp financial concerns they give him an X1.

anthemwake 01-22-2010 12:28 PM

Wait a minute...So let me get this straight...Mastercraft's starting a new brand called Red Herring???

alans 01-22-2010 12:32 PM

No... <BR> <BR>A company called Red Herring has purchased Mastercraft.

stuey 01-22-2010 12:53 PM

lol!!! Thread of the month award for sure..

anthemwake 01-22-2010 1:35 PM

Man, I know a guy that knows a guy who knows a lot of pros in Florida, and when I asked him about it, he said that Red Herring is going to take over in 2010. <BR> <BR>Kind of an insider secret though...don't tell anyone. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by anthemwake on January 22, 2010)

boomshot 01-22-2010 2:19 PM

Laughs. <BR> <BR>I know! <BR> <BR>Who else does? <BR> <BR>Somebody from the company had better fess up before people that know say something. Out of profound respect for my source I can not. Word is out though.

behindtheboat 01-22-2010 2:26 PM

you'd be surprised how many people don't really care

xistential 01-22-2010 2:37 PM

The truth?? Maybe you should change your name. <BR>About this anyway.

boomshot 01-22-2010 3:30 PM

Chris, what do you mean? Maybe you aren't reading my posts correctly. You may know who it is, I do (with 100% certainty), he's got to have one already, I know the terms of the deal, so the beans must be spilled. That message should come from the company. Not me. If there was a way for me to drop a hint to prove "The Truth" and not bone my resource, I would. Unfortunately the guy is one of my wake heroes so I won't.

hawkeye7708 01-22-2010 3:36 PM

There were signs of the impending buyout of Mastercraft by Red Herring Enterprises a while ago... just look at the bottom boat here: clearly, it's the 2010 "Red Herring" Wrap!! <BR> <BR><a href="http://wakeboardingmag.com/files//2010/01/mastercraft-boat-wraps-2.jpg" target="_blank">http://wakeboardingmag.com/files//2010/01/mastercraft-boat-wraps-2.jpg</a>

innov8 01-22-2010 3:37 PM

I would guess Axis.

wakerider111 01-22-2010 4:28 PM

Yea, and maybe he is switching to Company Wake too since Nicola rides Company <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>but for a more serious GUESS if a sponsor is in the works... Malibu? <BR>just going off the "truth" as a potential tip and going off <a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=2680" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=2680</a> <BR>which is probably totally on a limb anyway

stuey 01-22-2010 4:45 PM

I typically like the Sirlin wraps I've seen, but those two look like bad Ed Hardy shirts. Next we'll start seeing boats with sworawski crystals glued down the sides. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>

boomshot 01-23-2010 4:43 AM

It's not Axis, it's not MasterCraft and it's not Malibu.

otown_dave 01-23-2010 5:22 AM

Correct craft re signed him?

rmcronin 01-23-2010 5:42 AM

Bayliner's getting back into the wake boat market. Remember Murray's old red one. They're bringing it back-the Bayliner Red Herring Rathy signature edition, $19,900 out the door.

beretta5spd 01-23-2010 6:44 AM

It may be cc but pics of the last riders meeting early this week don't show him there. <BR> <BR>Well we're left with Moomba, Tige, Svfara, Sanger, Centurion, etc .... <BR> <BR>If I had to bet it would be on Moomba.

hawkeye7708 01-23-2010 6:54 AM

Don't forget Gekko and Standard! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0>

xistential 01-23-2010 7:36 AM

And Supra...

xistential 01-23-2010 7:37 AM

And Regal..............<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/uhoh.gif" border=0>

wakereviews 01-23-2010 7:46 AM

Calabria, MB, Wakecraft... who's it gonna be?

norbiv 01-23-2010 7:47 AM

all of you are way off the truth :D <BR>first of all he doesnt need nicolas help to get sponsored. <BR>second: Im sure you will all know when its time to make it public;) <BR>until then... keep guessing:D

mattjj23 01-23-2010 8:18 AM


boomshot 01-23-2010 8:35 AM

Norbert I didn't say he needed that. The Nicola connection is only that - a connection. Of which Rathy has MANY. <BR> <BR>Christ you guys take the smallest thing and run with it like a bunch of Olympic sprinters. What is this a tigeowners.com reunion?

xistential 01-23-2010 8:35 AM

Norbi - nobody is saying he needs Nicola's help. Most of this thread is conjecture, some of it is tongue in cheek and the rest is misunderstood. <BR>The whole thread has become a parody of itself. <BR> <BR>Oh, and there is a red herring as well which is either a boat or some kind of fish???

beretta5spd 01-23-2010 9:21 AM

No u guys I'm pretty sure the guy who won the world wake championships, king of wake, and oakley move of the year is going to need help landing himself a boat sponsor. <BR> <BR>Maybe Red Herring was the code name for Mastercrafts relationship with Cash Rewards.....

alans 01-23-2010 10:24 AM

<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>You guys are a trip.

alans 01-23-2010 10:25 AM

I am guessing it is a company that starts with an M

wakereviews 01-23-2010 10:35 AM

that would be my guess as well.

boomshot 01-23-2010 11:13 AM

Mine too.

azwakekid 01-23-2010 11:19 AM

no i want the last word<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

otown_dave 01-23-2010 11:33 AM

Well that "M" covers a few manufacturers then, It makes your chances of being right a lot better.

mtownrydr 01-23-2010 12:00 PM

I heard he was getting sponsored by Sea Doo keepin it Canadian. Gonna be ridin the speedster wake edition. Jet boat wakes for life! <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/770470.jpg" alt="Upload">

beretta5spd 01-23-2010 1:25 PM

Haha I was gonna bring up the sea doo challenger..... Like that would happen

wakeboardern1 01-23-2010 1:38 PM

<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/770476.gif" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>As you can see, we have a picture of him clearly riding behind a red herring. These new boats have one problem though, a lack of seating for other people... <BR> <BR> <BR>Realistically, if I had to guess at a sponsor for Rathy, I'd go with Epic. Specifically because right now they are working pretty hard at getting their name out on the East Coast, and if they were able to get the KoW on their team, well, that's fantastic publicity. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by wakeboardern1 on January 23, 2010)

beretta5spd 01-23-2010 2:01 PM

Sweet ride Nick I would love the honor to be signed onto the red herring team.

kriggs 01-23-2010 2:50 PM

Yea, I would also think epic.. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by kriggs on January 23, 2010)

boomshot 01-23-2010 3:00 PM

It's not Epic. <BR>Read the thread.

ttrigo 01-23-2010 3:19 PM

"If there was a way for me to drop a hint to prove "The Truth" and not bone my resource, I would. Unfortunately the guy is one of my wake heroes so I won't." <BR> <BR>yet here you are starting a worthless thread that does nothing but send out more rumors about one of your "wake heroes"? not sure why you would even start a thread like this. such a waste.

bill_c 01-23-2010 10:17 PM

Rathy is better than chuck norris, <BR>rathy doenst need a boat !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dlwsrider 01-24-2010 12:25 AM

I about peed my pants when I saw the red herring boat picture. <BR> <BR>+1 for him riding for Red Herring.

bmr82 01-25-2010 1:53 AM

I wish we could hurry up and find out so I can go buy that boat brand. This is why I love wake world. And the red herring pic is classic. Love it.

canadian_waterboy 01-25-2010 7:49 AM

please let it be MOOMBA, that'd be sick If he was rocking an XLV

wakeborder5 01-25-2010 8:23 AM

What was the point of this thread if you werent gonna share The Truth?

buffalow 01-25-2010 8:32 AM

I heard from a reliable source, he was on the west coast last week meeting with a wakeboard boat company. However I questioned the source when he said Jessica Alba was with him.....

ehwake 01-25-2010 8:34 AM

It would be nice to see a west coast Canadian boat builder sponsor a west coast Canadian rider...great opportunity here for Campion if they truly want to build the Svfara brand...unlikely I know.

beretta5spd 01-25-2010 8:49 AM

Yeah that's exactly what I thought Mike....unlikely...but it would be a great opportunity for Campion / Svfara and for Rathy to support the wake industry of Canada.
