Your wife(assuming you are married) is going to think you are cheating on her with another woman till she finds you laid out making love to your boat in the garage.

Not far... if they sprayed it two days ago, that means they still haven't even pulled the boat out of the mold. I think that takes three days.

With that said, you'd think they could send you some pics of the gel going down. I got those once on a previous build (different manufacturer), and it was cool to see.

I've found through two different manufacturers that getting build pics is really hit and miss. They aren't really set up to do it, so you are basically relying on somebody makeing a special effort for you. Sometimes they remember to do that, other times they forget. Not sure how Supra is on this type of thing.

Congratulations, I saw the sa 450 pull riders this year at the INT. What a great boat, Supra finally has a serious contender against the big 3.... that 550 is going to scream, looking forward to seeing your pictures.

That is a beautiful boat man! It still gets me how much these boats are nowadays. If you took that same 100k in the ocean world you could have a pretty big boat for the same amount of money. Obviously
this is the sport we all love so that's why we are in these boats but I still shake my head sometimes. I know you can get salt water series boats but for that price you are still locked in to freshwater and sometimes
I wish I could take my boat to the ocean.

Thats right on Chris...they say you spent how much. As they are climbing in!!!!! Enjoy it if you can!! You never know what can happen. Back in the day(99) I bought a brand new ski boat. Sold it in 01 and had kids, went thru a bad divorce, and a few other life changers and a boat wasn't an option for a long time. 10 plus years later we just bought a 2013 Tige!!

I love the pearl!! If you can do it man, why not!!

Chris...storage was included so i'm not taking it till spring. Water is close to freezing here so not much use. 131 hours is awesome. You must be close to the water or keep it on a lift. We have a cabin and didn't have a lift this summer so it had to go in and out every trip and then hang on a buoy while we were there. Takes away valuable riding time having to launch and retrieve every trip. Will have the new boat on a covered lift this summer and hope to get close to 75 hours.

Your color is awesome. If we had got to custom order there would have been pearl for sure. We have just a little in the recessed pockets in the back and the bow on the black. Locks sweet with the LEDS on!! Would have been cool to have it on the black on the hull.

Todd u will have to get pics up in spring. They r storing mine also. They gave me a discount for letting them use it in the spring boat show. So that will b cool seeing my boat at the show! Then it goes to the stereo shop to add more tower speakers, subs and better amps. By then the ice is leaving and its put on the dry suit. My dealer let's my keep it at there place which is 15 mins away on the best river around here. Yes the water temp is 54 here. My buddy went last night and said it was cold!! Well Congrats on the boat! Can't wait to c.pics.

Has anyone been on a 22' wakeboat with 9 other people? I have been on a few with 8, and that was aggravating. Getting boards, vests, equipment, etc was next to impossible. I am guessing people with 10+ on board are not boarding?

I could see extra capacity as a good thing for cruising and hitting the sand bar, but for wakeboarding? I prefer less people.

The CGA rating is not how many people the boat will actually hold. It has to do with calculations to come up with that number. I can tell you my 21V said 14 people I think and there is no way you are putting 14 people in that boat. In the SA you could actually put that many people. Would not be comfortable, but you could do it.

Apparently the ramps you frequent are bigger than the ones I use.

This aint much bigger than a f350...
Maybe a lil longer which won't effect the boat launch
..they r plenty big. Urs must b small??
