Well that makes some sense on the G23 Times........

Well that makes some sense on the G23 Times..... that is a terrible prop choice for a G23 with a 1.5:1 gearbox, and I have no idea why the owner would have that prop on the boat. A 17” diameter prop...

Haha, no offense intended, Scott. We’ve been running that 409 for 5 years now, and it’s never failed to do anything that was asked of it. It’s got plenty of power.

And it seems like you picked up...

But my 550 powered G23 would hit 23mph in 7.6 seconds with stock ballast, stock prop, and two people in the boat. I documented this in a prop...

^ I definitely think a whole lot of that applies for a lot of the typical new consumer type for these boats.

I personally don’t think it takes any more experience to setup the average surf, than...

Absolutely. If you get into shallow water like 8-10 feet, just hit a button on the screen, and the lake will go to a minimum of 15 feet deep for you.

Moomba/Supra is pretty popular on my lake, because it is the only brand with an on-lake dealer. I have 2 buddies with the original autowake. One is an SE, and the other is a Moomba Craz. And also 1...

That's because it's about the size of 2 25LSVs on top of each other..... and it's longer. Big boat is big.

Once again, never said the Sanger doesn't ride good on chop. And I said absolutely nothing about being anchored in a busy part of the lake.

The OP requested suggestions for a large surf boat, for...

Did I say anything about how it rides in chop?? I only commented on the freeboard. I realize they have a steep deadrise from tip to tail, and that they slice through the chop pretty well.

Applies mostly to all year G21s, and 2013-2015 G23 and G25. They changed the stem angle and added spray chines to the G23 and G25 in 2016. They help, but it is definitely still one of the wetter...

Just FYI, the steeper stem angle on the 16+ G23 did it absolutely no favors on taking water over the bow. The bow spray is definitely reduced (still worse than most), but I very frequently have a bit...

Draft on the Mojo is 28".....

So, 3" is your definition of a huge difference in draft.......hopefully your lake never has waves, and you don't ever have to carry passengers.

A 31" draft is about average for a wake boat. Centurions and MBs are a couple inches deeper, Malibu is a couple inches shallower, except the M235, which is 32"......etc.... Most are...

They dropped the length on the new star. It's not 24' anymore (with a tiny cockpit), it's a 23 footer now. I think the cockpit area looks about normal size for a 23 footer. Same with the bow.
