Bryan - What did Island Marine do that upset you? I bought my boat from them and they do backflips to make me happy. I could not be happier with my boat, so I am just curious what transpired.

I have the 2001 Sunsport, which is the Launch SS without launch graphics. It has an excellent ski wake, and IMO a very good wakeboard wake. I ski some in a ski club that uses a Malibu Response, and...

I hate the look of the front-mounted spares, so I had an undercarriage spare installed. It cost about $350 for the install (plus cost of tire and wheel), but I love not seeing it. I had it...

Thanks for the advice. Most of what I am shooting is outdoors, so I will save that big upcharge and find a regular zoom.

You guys need to make a trip south or west and ski in the winter. I lived my whole life in the midwest until 2000 when I moved to California. It totally changes skiing to be able to go year round. ...

Your top boards just need to sit more forward, and then you can put four boards on the tower. Play with it, and you will see what I mean. I have no problem putting my 141 Belmont up there.

My Supra dealer, Island Marine, is in Corona SW of the I-15/91 interchange. They are obviously Indmar certified, so you can do any service or warranty work there (if you have warranty remaining).
