The size itself isn’t what turns me off. If I’m buying a 30’+ boat it better have a cabin. An interesting proposition would be a live-aboard I could take out and surf, especially if I don’t have to...

Leaving aside price the first place I’d look is the Mastercraft X22. Love the X24 wave and I hear the X22 is similar.

Ford tow ratings are weird. Make sure to check exactly how it’s configured. The 2.7l can go up to 8,500lbs depending on how it’s set up. I’ve towed a Nautique 230 with the 2.7l economist with no...

This is wakeworld. I’ve at least a lurker on this site since the early 2000s. It’s amusing that we’re complaining about the wake that modern boats are throwing. We used to throw the biggest wakes on...

5 of the top 6 comments actually stuck to the given criteria. I’m impressed. That may be a wakeworld record for truck or boat recommendations.

If you’re primarily a wakeboarder, the A22 all day. If you value a nice interior over having the best wake, the RZ2. Anything else is kind of a toss up. The rz2 will probably surf better but it...

I’d call your local Tige dealer and ask. The water pump isn’t a big deal. The driveshaft leaking isn’t either but it’s a pain to get to.

Resale is a factor but otherwise i think engine hours is a really overblown worry. Engines are very very available and not terribly expensive. I can still easily get a 351w marine long block and they...

I saw a Wake Tractor out on the lake for the first time today. Unfortunately i couldn’t get a look at the surf wave or wakeboard wake. It was pulling a tube all day long.

Solarez is great. My process is what Doomswell recommended to me. Sand the area, apply Solarez and cover with Saran Wrap. Let it cure in the sun. Remove Saran Wrap and sand again. Keep in mind...

That pic is a little too close for me to see what the issue is. But there are usually black retaining pieces on the seat bottoms to prevent them from siding out. Maybe yours is missing or Centurion...

The WT-SURF is a bigger boat than the original Wake Tractor and they are asking more for them. If I remember right, not quite $80k though. To me personally, trying to sell a brand new “surf” without...

1. They still make the 210. They really didn’t change a whole lot on the 210 hull in 2014. They basically cut notches in the hull so the NSS isn’t a bolt on and made a few minor tweaks. Aside from...

Usually hulls are symmetrical. That’s not always going to make a symmetrical wake. Weight is usually not distributed evenly, especially with passengers on board. And the prop rotation is going to...

I wouldn’t change the budget wake boat chart. It’s still pretty close to right. If anything it might be worth starting a budget wake surf board chart that goes to like $50k and is short like the wake...

The Nubstep and Neo in 4’8” are great. At 6’2” 220lbs I primarily ride a 4’8” Neo now but only because I couldn’t find a Nubstep in that size. I went down from a 5’ Neo that my wife still primarily...

Even a 2015/2016 boat stands a good chance at spending time at the dealership so I’d look around for a dealership you like and then narrow down the boat. Nautique, Mastercraft, Malibu, Supra, and...

This is kind of apples and oranges. The G21 is a 21’ wake-specific boat. The XT23 is a 23’ crossover. It’s hard to beat the surf and wakeboard wakes of a G21 in a 21’ package. I came really close to...
