Not meant as a slight, just a funny observation...

This past weekend my friend and I were wondering when we'd see the first G23 in our area (Winnipesaukee NH). My friend said it didn't matter because they'd probably by tubing anyway.

can I come too? I actually am really good at tubing...but I'm goofy foot.

I can bring some cheetos.

I can bring the 12pack bottles of coronas, maybe some red gatorade. My girlfriend looks hot in high heels and just something about her red toe nail polish out on the water makes me melt.

Oh and I can so stand up on a tube, trying to get the backflip down though. Maybe the G23 will help with that

I'll even bring my flying tube! They say it's dangerous, but they're just player hating!

I just saw this on Planet looks like a fun event.

The first Super Air Nautique G23 for Northern California will be arriving next weekend. We are having a one day Preview Party on Saturday, September 8th between 10AM and 4PM.

This will be the only day to check this boat out, the owner is excited to pick it up! We have more on order; however, the next G23 will not arrive until late October.

We are looking forward to see as many PN members from Northern California as possible.

Can somebody go ahead and make a rap song with the chorus of "so fly in my G23"? I am tired of that old song "so fly in my g6" I do not know a single person that owns a g6 and that there means you cannot sing along to that horrible song

Boat looks great but I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that trailer. I feel like we r nit picking but that is the first one I've seen on a crappy looking trailer and I just don't get it. To nice of a boat and too much money to have it on that crappy trailer.
Old    LR3w8kbrdr            09-07-2012, 2:46 PM Reply   
What brand trailer is that? Maybe its someone who will always have the boat on a lift and just needs trailer to get it to and from dealer.
Old    Shredtastic (seth)      Join Date: Sep 2002       09-07-2012, 3:50 PM Reply   
Yeah, I was going to get this super sick, bling bling, 26" spinners, led, carbon fiber trailer but I would have had to downgrade to the 230 to afford it. It was a tough decision and I was so close to getting the 230 so that sick trailer could sit at the ramp all day while we tubed and surfed but I didnt. Hopefully you will see wakedaveup doing some mexi backrolls on the tube this weekend behind the G23.

Looks like a DHM trailer.
Old    Chris C (cboom12)      Join Date: Jul 2004       09-07-2012, 7:59 PM Reply   
I'm not even saying bling trailer. I'm saying the stock trailer that comes with most brand new 80k ++++++ boats. That looks like the striped down trailer we used to sell with the x-1 the first year when it was 39,999.

Ya it's a DHM, or what it should really be called a, P.O.S. I have an 02 210 with a DHM trailer, crappiest trailer I've ever seen. Not worthy of carrying a G23 that's for sure.

Ok, I got to ride behind this thing today and all I can say is WOW! This is the most unbelievable wake I've ever ridden. We rode stock ballast and it was up to my mid/upper thigh. My first heal side jump I was actually waiting to come down. I'm in love!
Now I just need a rich friend to buy one so I can ride it all the time!
Anyhow, thanks Bob for letting Brodie, Bob and I come out and experience the epic-ness that is this boat! Super plush and extremely functional. I am officially drunk on the G23 Cool-Aid!

Oh ya, and I met a couple today who's seriously considering buying a G25...I hope I get to ride that one if/when it comes in too
Here's a shot of Brodie riding the G23 today to give an idea of the wake size.

Did superior and the new owner have an arrangement? I would have a really hard time letting my new boat get used before I used it.

Looks to me like whoever owns that Tahoe that's pulling the G23 needs to re-evaluate his towing skills. Look how far the nose is dipped down in the front, then look at the pic of the boat above on a trailer with no tow vehicle. In the pic where it's not connected to a truck, the trailer is level, and the nose and body line is straight. In the pic where it's connected to the Tahoe, it's dropped in the front BAD! The front tires are carrying most of the load that way, and that's just short of it swaying into an accident at highway speeds, or an emergency stop situation.

Fix that **** before someone gets hurt.

Looks like its level but the trailer is sloping to the truck....so who f'n cares

On another note we'll stop by around 1030 on our way to getting the boat out...anyone else gonna check it out?

The boat may be level on the trailer, but as it sits on the Tahoe, all the load of the boat is on one set of axles. If you don't care, then don't reply.....

Someone will care when it hits a bump in the road and the fender puts a big gash in the side of the tire.Seen it happen before.

went and looked at the boat this morning at superior and i gotta say it is sweet. Not that i thought it wouldnt be. As many have said before it is so well thought out. Other than that cheapo trailer i cant pick out anything that i could complain about. Even the walk through that so many have criticized looks much better in person.

If that Tahoe is like my Denali (and I'm guessing it is), the auto levelling airbags deflate when the truck isn't running. Mine gives a nose dip until i turn the key. So maybe he doesn't need to re-evaluate his towing skills.
Old    John Bauer (jonyb)      Join Date: Nov 2008       09-08-2012, 2:56 PM Reply   
Don't believe the Tahoe has air ride, just the Denali's. Even if it did, that looks like about a 4-5" drop. There's not an OEM air ride out there that will lift that much. My wife had an 04 Denali and it didn't lift nearly that much, only enough to keep the truck level.

Either way, sick boat for sure....

Typical WW thread these days... A good post with some nice boat and wake pics and then the bashing begins from a picture where you have no idea how a boat is being towed. Carry on... FWIW sweet color combo on that beast and that wake is dialed, who ever is throwing the coin at that boat is stoked.

Wake looks good.....
But come on Linz your like 5'3 and Brodie is like 5'7 right....lol

That thing looks like beast on the trlr!!!!

Not bashing but the boat is pretty heavy right? So "stock" ballast plus a heavy boat is comparable to a slammed lighter boat....correct?

Again wake looks good.....looks long and rampy....was it Linz?

Yeah I'm thinking the same as you. That boat is 5100 dry plus 2800 stock ballast and your already like 2,600lbs more than a full stock 230. Guessing the reason these are getting so big is because they have to be able to legally hold all the weight. Why not just make a wake boat outa steal! Imagine that a 8,000lb boat with no ballast!

Comparing a Gulfstream to a G23 is laughable. G23 is more like a cargo plane, or a water bomber.

I might be short Jeff but I think Brodie is taller than 5'7" but you'd have to ask him. I'm sure you could weight another boat down to get it this massive, but how nice is it that you don't have to plumb any extra weight or fill fat sacks? You still have all your storage and seating, aren't sitting super low (rub line in the water) and taking rollers over the side or back when a yhat comes by on the river and you still get a mackin' wake? Just sayin' it was pretty awesome!

I will never own one....way to spendy...I got a Moomba remember...lol

And floor space is something I will be concerned with soon since Joey is all over the place now!!!!

Linz what wake would you compare it to?
Slammed X star
slammed Mxz

Tom it's such a smooth pop, its really nice. You have to edge allllllll the way up it, theres no hold your edge stand tall at the wake it hold your edge hold your edge keep holding for lift off, so smooth.

That is one of the best looking boats I have seen. Although I love my boat to death - that thing is beautiful and appears to be functional.
