J.L. - So how is Tom coming on the invention? Any prototypes? Does it look promising that he could have a product that could go to market?

I'm not involved with Tom, Steve Cox is my contact he is involved with Tom I don't no to much I think its more an idea than working proto type It would take a tow boat to pull it so there are some issues with that aspect of it I got some ideas of my own for that type of wave tool . As I'm sure Show has some ideas in his head about this Alot of X factors in this type of Wake Tool

No, J.L. I just checked. I don't have any towable surf generating machine ideas.

To be honest a used V-drive can be had now for as little as $20,000. That's pretty cheap entry.

I like the idea of a towable on a track. That's a cable park for surfing. Put that track on an oval and you could surf all day on one wave.

Excellent idea Show. You could even have a reg & goofy surfer going all day on the same wave if done correctly.

You're funny Ed. Pray tell, why are the 2011 Pan American Games of interest to us, here in the wakesurf forum? :-)

Speaker in the transom??? Brilliant. It says it is more affordable but the articles said it had a touchscreen interface that controls everything including the GPS. I'm interested to see how they do on the water.

existing fish boat mold,"quota cheater hybrid hull" combined with twin screw CPP's.(controllable,prop pitch propellers)
gas/electric/hybrid power assist(solar panel blanket as the bimini).
ive been designing this boat on a few different design forums.The wave is to be 5' at 16mph on both sides at the same time.
cant wait to see what the big guyz are up to

No drama Susanne Hillin, as usual, whatever comes from Billy or his aliases crack me up! Again, LOL!

All the Wake Outlaws events are always up on WO and TWC and CCC, any WO organized events would be in the WW events section only, not this forum.

LOL!

Waterdod: what about some working RC model?
ha! the RC world is where i got my power plant idea from.
the CPP allows for complete adjustability,hopefully making it possible to tune an equal wave port or starboard.
in the shipping world due to severe hull flex when under load,the CPP's are used to account for the flex,making the voyage that much more efficient.
same goes in the model airplane world.CPP's are being used more and more.
hi sue! nope, my boats stayin put.howz the game?
dont provoke the LOLoud mouth.hes only on here because know one is on his site.
if i were him i would get used to that.
LOL

I have a 2008 Enzo 230, with the regular prop rotation. Here is a pic of my friends daughter on the right side, it makes a nice wake. Wish I had a picture of just the wake. I have 2 adults and 3 little kids in the boat, with the 2 stock rear ballast tanks and the center tank filled and the switchblade set at 2. I need more people in the boat (especially the boy) to have the switchblade all the way down.Upload
