A lot of good advice. I still do not own a 100K+ boat but my ride is extravagant when compared to how most people in the world live. Buy a boat you can easily afford, enjoy it and as you save more...

Looked at a Moomba Mojo and kind of leaning towards that. Like the layout and size, not crazy about the tower, but like that you can pick one up that is just 3-4 years old for around $40K. The MB...

Nice wave and no problem with listing. I'm in a slightly smaller Cent now so have a good feel for the surf drill on these rides if the newer Avy is similar.

How many hours are too many for a...

I about spit out my beer when my bride said she wanted to update our '04 Centurion Elite / Lightning. She is not the big boater but after riding on some others, she wants a fresher ride.

Central AR

My old crew are having babies and enjoying life in different ways and would like to ride with one or two regulars. I have a 22 Centurion at a slip on AR river but Im not too partial to any one boat.

I get simlilar GPH in a 22' footer when we do not fill the Heavys. The GPH drops to 6-7GPH when we have more than 2000 in it. You pay a lot over the course of the year for that extra 6 inches of...

No benefit if you like the handles on the boats you ride on. I kind of cringe when every rider shows to my boat up with their own line. I will swap lines but not a fan of it after every set and I...

20-25MPH is a pretty good spread and would try to get speed more consistent. It takes lots of small throttle adjustments and having a consistent speed is the first thing to a consistent wake.

Also prop rotation changed from the old 210s to the new models so you get a better surf wave on port (reg) and when in reverse you drift to starboard. The new 210 is not as steep as previous hull,...

Jason: No single right answer. For regular riders, I pay or hope to get the cash equivalent of 3-5 gals gas per set rounded to the nearest $5. If there is a significant tow, I will throw in more.

I don't worry about it unless I'm not going to use the boat for a while. As I understand it, phase separation takes a month or more time to be a significant concern.

Not sure about the wake-ability of the hull, but one thing is for sure, you could probably put 6000lbs in her and your gunells will stay dry. There is a lot of freeboard. I would guess it would...

I wish I would have had the good fortune to ride in a boat that was slammed to the point the platform was dragging at 24MPH. So far no such luck and I have been in a couple of really slammed boats.
