Why not tow with them at reasonable speeds and short distances? Why not put them on at the garage?

My boards go straight from the wall storage racks in my garage to the wakeboard racks on my...

While I would never do it at highway speeds, I trailer with board in the racks (swung in so they don't stick out) every time we go to our local riding spot as we never go over 40 mph and it's about...

You should do some more research. Every Malibu 2012 and up comes from the factory with a backup key that starts and runs the engine independent of any electronics or screens. 2010 and prior used a...

Would love to hear how the Vision 180 compares to the PTM Edge 140 Pro for anybody who has used both.

The dry weight numbers really don't mean anything, you need to research what the boat actually weighs lake-ready on the trailer. That 247 on the trailer probably weighs 6500-7000 lbs when full of...

If you are still confused then you just need to spend more time in and around each boat to see which ones fits your needs the best. Anything by the big 3 are all great boats so you really can't go...

That is carpet. It might be low pile, but it's still carpet, even if given a cute name. That's why it's called carpet on the Nautique parts website.

How come in 2014 Nautique still lines their storage areas with carpet in a $100k boat? That 230 has probably 3 times more carpet in the storage areas than my VLX does since I ordered mine with the...

Wow, that dash does not look good. Overall the boat is nice but some things just really make you scratch your head. That large chunck of aluminum hanging off the side of the windshield is another...

You would want the 1235 prop instead of the stock 1939 prop even if you were only running stock ballast. It will save you gas and get you on plane faster, pretty much paying for itself in the first...

The 2013 Mojo at our show was $61K, boat show price, not MSRP. That Mondo looks good (terrible name), but I would be surprised to see it in the 40's as pictured given what they are selling the Mojo...

The MXZ 22 is already over 7000lbs on the trailer. One member on the Malibu Crew weighed his and it was 7200lbs. Even my 21.5' VLX is 6000lbs on the trailer when lake ready with fuel (I weighed it)....

Congrats! That's a sharp looking X30, very classy. I like the look of the dark interiors too but would imagine it gets pretty hot.

Lots of nice rigs in here!




Please be careful as you are likely exceeding that 5K tow rating by a substantial bit. You should weigh your boat on a trailer to make sure, but I would bet lake...

I think that IXFE made a good point. Despite everything SC has posted on that bio, if SC’s goal was to make a MXZ knockoff they probably didn’t really need to hire anybody new to do it. So if he is...

The boat show price for the 2013 SA450 was $97k. At the same boat show the MXZ with the LS3, surfgate, and a few additional options was $90k. So local to me the SA is also $10k more than a comparable...

In every picture that show a storage area or an exposed panel you can see the fake teak on the floors and gray carpeting lining all of the walls.
