Most popular towboat was my point. Malibu is by far #1 and Axis is #4 last I checked. Malibu sales about 800 23 LSVs alone. Natique barely sales 1,000 total.

You understand that he is not being impeached for a phone call, right. It is the activities of Guliani and Sondland operating under his orders. Those started back when Fiona Hill was the ambassador.

Name calling nonsense. You are just following the lead of our leader.

You are right. Trump is probably going to win in 2020. Nixon was re-elected during the watergate investigation. Politics isn't...

It is his lying that I can stand for. I don't even oppose all of his policies. It is the fact that he make easily verifiable lies constantly.

Compare the dry weights. 7,400lbs vs 5,900lbs. They aren't the same boat.

$169,000 is the G23 with the 409 engine. The Paragon is standard with the 575 engine.

Personally, I don't see either...

I've ridden both pairs (2019s). I actually liked the supremes and I usually don't like strappy bindings. A lot of guys at the cable park swear by the step-out kind.

If you are that strong of a rider, I dare you to try a proper boat board. You will crap your pants. And Oka's board is made of wood, but it is rock hard. That is why he has two boards...
