NICE! was just looking at them trying to get a feel for what the price would be.... I would probably be into the SA350

Bumpass1 09-06-2012 3:32 PM

Maybe you will have enough time to at least get her through the break-in period.

Bumpass1 09-06-2012 3:33 PM

Congrats by the way. Share the build pics through process if possible.

Your wife(assuming you are married) is going to think you are cheating on her with another woman till she finds you laid out making love to your boat in the garage.

chrisbucklin 09-06-2012 4:45 PM

chrisbucklin 10-02-2012 1:59 AM

man like u wouldnt believe...i got email from them yesterday on how my interior is goin to look that i picked out. they think it may b to dark so goin there tonight to relook it. i dont want to dark but its hard to tell whats dark and whats not without seeing it! but the factory emailed them and worned them so it must b a lil dark.

wakebordr11 10-02-2012 5:35 AM

I thought we were getting build pics, lets see em!

mark197 10-02-2012 6:50 AM

Have them get some build pictures!

chrisbucklin 10-02-2012 6:57 AM

I will let them no to. It don't start till Oct 16th but they did one close to the colors I picked and its darker than ppl thought. So they r warning us. But in two week's should have build pics. They emailed me two pics of the interior but how do I put them up on here?

mark197 10-02-2012 2:09 PM

Here you go Chris. It's going to look awesome.

Not far... if they sprayed it two days ago, that means they still haven't even pulled the boat out of the mold. I think that takes three days.

With that said, you'd think they could send you some pics of the gel going down. I got those once on a previous build (different manufacturer), and it was cool to see.

I've found through two different manufacturers that getting build pics is really hit and miss. They aren't really set up to do it, so you are basically relying on somebody makeing a special effort for you. Sometimes they remember to do that, other times they forget. Not sure how Supra is on this type of thing.

chrisbucklin 10-18-2012 1:54 AM

well my dealer thought he had someone on the line that would. but denny(my salesman) was not at work yesterday. so maybe today?!?! thanks for the input tho!

fman 10-18-2012 7:52 AM

Congratulations, I saw the sa 450 pull riders this year at the INT. What a great boat, Supra finally has a serious contender against the big 3.... that 550 is going to scream, looking forward to seeing your pictures.

chrisbucklin 10-18-2012 3:37 PM

I seen the 550 at the worlds and it was killer. So it sounds like it comes out of the mold today or tomorrow. Then we will b getin pics!

mark197 10-19-2012 6:36 AM

Chris I'm pumped for you, hopefully pictures start showing up soon.

mark197 10-19-2012 9:14 AM

Chris asked me to post these teasers for him.

Man its going to be a sexy boat.

simplej 10-19-2012 9:54 AM

If I was going to walk into a dealer and buy a new boat today the z3, this, and an epic would be at the top of my list right now. this boat is dirty.

chrisbucklin 10-19-2012 11:37 AM

Man I just got home and looked at these pics on the computer rather than the phone and they look way better now!! Man I can't wait.

DatTexasBoy 10-20-2012 6:06 AM

I use to think metal flake was just for fishing boats, but I am really digging this one. Good job. Enjoy!!!!

brycejb328 10-20-2012 6:27 AM

Love these new Supras.

Do they offer the tower for this like the 2012 worlds had?

boardman74 10-23-2012 7:04 AM

That's kinda how I felt bout upgrading to the 550. What's another 6g's when ur spending 90 some.

bcrider 10-24-2012 8:53 AM

That is a beautiful boat man! It still gets me how much these boats are nowadays. If you took that same 100k in the ocean world you could have a pretty big boat for the same amount of money. Obviously
this is the sport we all love so that's why we are in these boats but I still shake my head sometimes. I know you can get salt water series boats but for that price you are still locked in to freshwater and sometimes
I wish I could take my boat to the ocean.

I here ya dave bout what u could do with 100g but this is what I love.... lots of ppl think I'm crazy but they all want to ride in it!...In Wisconsin we don't have to worry to much bout wanting to go yo the ocean...

boardman74 10-24-2012 3:06 PM

Thats right on Chris...they say you spent how much. As they are climbing in!!!!! Enjoy it if you can!! You never know what can happen. Back in the day(99) I bought a brand new ski boat. Sold it in 01 and had kids, went thru a bad divorce, and a few other life changers and a boat wasn't an option for a long time. 10 plus years later we just bought a 2013 Tige!!

I love the pearl!! If you can do it man, why not!!

chrisbucklin 10-24-2012 5:44 PM

Todd Congrats on the new boat! Its a good feeling! U have it yet? I had a 04 210 and put 131 hours on this last summer. So that's really good for wis. So it will get used!

ilikebeaverandboats 10-24-2012 5:58 PM

that thing looks MEAN! dig it

boardman74 10-24-2012 6:29 PM

Chris...storage was included so i'm not taking it till spring. Water is close to freezing here so not much use. 131 hours is awesome. You must be close to the water or keep it on a lift. We have a cabin and didn't have a lift this summer so it had to go in and out every trip and then hang on a buoy while we were there. Takes away valuable riding time having to launch and retrieve every trip. Will have the new boat on a covered lift this summer and hope to get close to 75 hours.

Your color is awesome. If we had got to custom order there would have been pearl for sure. We have just a little in the recessed pockets in the back and the bow on the black. Locks sweet with the LEDS on!! Would have been cool to have it on the black on the hull.

chrisbucklin 10-25-2012 3:07 AM

Todd u will have to get pics up in spring. They r storing mine also. They gave me a discount for letting them use it in the spring boat show. So that will b cool seeing my boat at the show! Then it goes to the stereo shop to add more tower speakers, subs and better amps. By then the ice is leaving and its put on the dry suit. My dealer let's my keep it at there place which is 15 mins away on the best river around here. Yes the water temp is 54 here. My buddy went last night and said it was cold!! Well Congrats on the boat! Can't wait to c.pics.

chrisbucklin 10-25-2012 12:55 PM

Not sure what's up yet but I just got a email that said the sa went from 10 passengers to 13!!! Thats great news to me.

bruizza 10-25-2012 1:49 PM

I thought 10 sounded awfully small for a 22ft boat. 13 sounds much better!!!

MattieK27 10-25-2012 2:13 PM

Has anyone been on a 22' wakeboat with 9 other people? I have been on a few with 8, and that was aggravating. Getting boards, vests, equipment, etc was next to impossible. I am guessing people with 10+ on board are not boarding?

I could see extra capacity as a good thing for cruising and hitting the sand bar, but for wakeboarding? I prefer less people.

tyler97217 10-25-2012 2:48 PM

The CGA rating is not how many people the boat will actually hold. It has to do with calculations to come up with that number. I can tell you my 21V said 14 people I think and there is no way you are putting 14 people in that boat. In the SA you could actually put that many people. Would not be comfortable, but you could do it.

I always have Max ppl. I had a san210 and it was 10. We had 10 on all the rime with two coolers. And yes we board every time. It fies get tight...but also we have 3-4 kids too...so that helps
I end up with s lot if kids all the time. I'm happy over the extra room. Its almost done!

mark197 10-25-2012 2:50 PM

boardman74 11-01-2012 5:03 PM

I hear you, I'm in the Twin cities. They do look way better in the sun then in the show room. Mine is night and day difference and I only have a little pearl in the gel. Your's is going to look pretty cool i'm sure.

chrisbucklin 11-03-2012 8:35 PM

I don't envy you having to back a boat down the ramp with that thing.

chrisbucklin 11-04-2012 2:08 PM

more than just a pull mark! maybe i can help u next summer for the big day! and if ur boat is down and u need one u no where u can use one! bout the pole,the kids c them all the time in the other two busses and they like to play on them. its goin to b a nice pull vehicle. bout backing that wont b a problem,have bigger at work and do it everyday. its nothin.

Apparently the ramps you frequent are bigger than the ones I use.

chrisbucklin 11-05-2012 8:25 AM

This aint much bigger than a f350...
Maybe a lil longer which won't effect the boat launch
..they r plenty big. Urs must b small??
