The following story and photos were taken off wakeutah.com and I will post the link at the bottom.
I took a long look at this at the Boat Show. It is amazing, but just now know the whole story.
For the record, Taylor is great along with the guys at his shop, Coop, Ralph and Kenny among others.
BIG surprise at the Taylor's Boats exhibit well... a picture's worth a thousand words! Taylor is always thinking of something to do for the wakeboard community and this year he went all out! It's the TBI Slider! It can be trailered to any lake, launched and towed to a location. The ramps that are stored inside are easily assembled with 8 bolts. It's built on a 21i Tige hull. It was a customer's boat that got re-po'd by the bank. Then the bank tried to sell it and it got stolen. It was later found in a field totally stripped! So the bank gave it to Taylor and it sat in the boat yard for 2 years. A couple months ago Taylor had the idea to build a slider onto the hull. Jason Coop designed it and Mike Sailors, one of the mechanics at Taylor's boats built it. This thing specs out at 8' tall, 18 feet up ramp, 21.5' flat bar, 16' down ramp! WakeUtah plans to have this thing at as many of our events as possible! http://www.wakeutah.com/2003/news/02-03/boatshow/recap.htm
