here it is...just got back from North Carolina and took her out this weekend. Let me know what you all think! I love it! The wake is sick and Southern Ski boats did a great job with the stereo system!

Huh? I have a SAN, not an MB. Sean has the MB. Are you Jay Connelly, the head of customer service, he asked the same thing today?

Is it an 06? I am ordering one and I hear they have made some changes to the interior. Wit
ch tower is that? The boat is beautiful! Use it in good health! MB's are the best built boats out there.

it is an 06 and is the the classic tower not the pro tower. I was not crazy about the blade design on the side of the pro tower...plus this tower made mounting the tower accessories much easier. The pro tower might be a big more stiff..not that this one is not. It does not move too much for me.

Sweet boat! I like the colors you picked for the puzzle graphics and the classic tower looks good.
Did you get the two speed tranny and ZR6 too?
Congrats and enjoy! MB's are top notch.

I did not get the two speed tranny and it has the 330 excalibur. The zr6 is sweet, but it was a bit pricey

Here is mine with the other tower. Love the boat, the tower does move around alot but really doesnt bother me. I did go with the 6L but no two speed, works great.

Here is our demo boat. I love the MB too. It really draws a crowd. We did the team edition with the ZR6 but no 2 speed. Loaded down with people and ballast and we still get out of the hole with ease. Smart move Sean and Tom on going with the classic tower. we are pulling the pro one off and going with the classic tower.

What have ya'll found is the best combo to get a clean wake. I am having problems finding the right combo to produce a clean wake. Mine is washed out. It does put out a super sick surf wake though. We had 11 people and 1000 pounds on the left and the wake was un real!

My wake was is a little washed around 20MPH with a lot of wieght in the boat. I just use a longer line and go a little faster 22-23 and it is very big and clean. Why are you getting rid of the pro tower? Is the dealer hooking you up with the new one. I am not very happy with the pro only because it moves around a lot, but I figured that had to do with all the speakers. Also it is a pain to fold and all of the rubber pads under the bases have moved and are sticking out. Does the other tower not have these issues?

I have 300lbs of lead in the front to help with bow rise...that only really happens when nobody sits up front and the tanks are filled. You definitely have to go faster. I dont have my speedo calibrated, but i would guess we are going around 23-24. With no weight in the boat the wake is clean around 20lbs. If you can Find Alan Slabaugh on this forum he has his team edition dialed in nice!

What is the price of one of those? Which market are they competing for - Tige and Malibu, or SAN and MC, or Bayliner and Four Winns?
Old    Kenny (trash4life)      Join Date: Jun 2005       06-30-2006, 11:33 PM Reply   
I've been seriously thinking of buying the 23 as well but haven't been out on the water with one yet. I've heard that for wakeboarding the wake is great, but my wife likes to ski. Me buying it depends on if it can ski decently. I'm not wanting a tournament level ski boat but she likes to open water ski. Have any of you skied much and hows the wake?

t-guy - surley you know Bayliner/Tige/Fourwinns are in market of their own.

Clete,

Instead of being rude why don't you answer the question?

I hope that my question didn't come across as demeaning. It is an honest question - what price range are these boats?
Old    Clete (domin8)      Join Date: Mar 2004       07-01-2006, 9:34 PM Reply   
It did come accross that that way and I was being light harted as I expecting you were. Not being rude, no problem.

I would they are similarly priced as a same size Tige. Just they come with most all included.
