I want to throw a huge thanks to Reboats Utah ( and MB for bringing my ideas to life. My biggest request was to take the X out of the sun pad and just run all white no seams. Nobody seemed to be a fan of doing it but MB got it done and it's looks better than I even thought it would. Went with a lot of white on the outside with a black hull, looks so damn sick on the water coming at ya. Also added full LED lighting inside and out, 4 board racks, logo carpet, PCM 343, and to top it off a white trailer. Well she's got almost 10 hrs on it and I'm just in love! First full day on the water with some really good friends today!

You can see an all white X on the sunpad. MB fixed it before they shipped it to UT.

The boat looks sick Josh! I really like the shot of it coming at you! It looks mean in the water coming at you.Have fun and enjoy your new toy. I also like the all white sun pad ,great idea.

Thanks guys... The boat has been a blast so far!
Jon ~ I have attached the extra racks to the upright as on a normal tube tower. They fit just between the shade top and the side accents. If I remember they are 2 3/8 clamps.

Great looking boat you did an outstanding job picking your colors and vinyl. I was amazed at all the textures to choose from with MB.

Looks GREAT Josh. The black underneath looks sick coming at you for sure.

Very nice! If I order one I may copy you.

How much over factory ballast and what speed for that wake?

BTV - Copy away homi... I run a full tank of gas, 1800 stock, 450 in the nose and the peep's in the boat at 24.5 MPH.

Looks great! I have one that should be here in the next few weeks that I can't wait to get. The wake looks great and post up some more pics, especially of the rear sun pad.

josh, looks sick. I think thats the nicest looking f21 I have seen yet. I like how you ditched the big x on the sun pad, I too did not like that at all. Your interior is super classy. Your summer is going to be rad.

Wake looks great, interior even better. Looks so much better without that giant "X" across the sun pad.

sic sic sic, CONGRATULATIONS on another fine purchase DFTR. Next time I'm in Utah...........

And I just got off the phone with Ian, he's sending those Skylon racks to me asap. Gotta make room for all the kids boards.

What speed are you at?
Did you have trim tab? And where is it set?
Ballast full?

I got the idea that MB wasn't happy with not doing the X since it's out of the norm and the X package you usually order. I really like the outside with the huge X on the side and then the black hull to give a little more aggressive look. I also ordered the sides of the tower gloss black but they were not done yet. My interior I visioned a more elegant look with taking out the huge X on the sun pad and using a lot of white. I have now found how much white is a pain in the ass and now need to find a cleaner that will keep this white shinning. I did give the BTS product a try on the interior a little but not much help for keeping it clean. Time to use the search button on here, I know there has been a lot of talk about cleaning interiors...

Thanks everybody!!!

I picked up the boat bling vinyl cleaner and the sealant. Worked great on my white vinyl. Keep the over spray of the sealant off the gel if you try it nothing bad just have to remove it from the gel after. So far I have been very impressed with bb. Also use the ww discount if you give it try.

Thanks Mark!!!
Scott R. - I posted above with the weight and speed. You will want the trip tab all the way up! It does nothing for the wake, just helps to get on plane a little faster.

I like it! Love the 2nd set of racks.
Old     (downfortheride)      Join Date: Jun 2005 Location: SLC, UT 5600'       04-23-2012, 3:19 PM Reply   
Found boat bling local and I can get both sauces for $34... BOOM, thanks for the heads up Mark. I search WW and boat bling comes up in almost every cleaning vinyl post.
Bruizza - A second set of racks is always a must, my family alone comes with 4 boards. I really like the fact that the racks all come off quick and I can store them out of the sun and don't have to drive with them. Another something that I don't need to clean bugs off of.

Just got confirmation from MB that my boat is supposed to ship May 8. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Is it me or does that wake look wiiiide! Looks super clean though! Looks like it has a really nice shape. Awesome boat man, I'm super jealous!
Old     (downfortheride)      Join Date: Jun 2005 Location: SLC, UT 5600'       04-25-2012, 3:43 PM Reply   
Beleza ~ The wake don't feel at all wide to me. I do ride a SANTE210 which it's wider than that but not bad at all. The shape of the wake is awesome!!! I have tried it with just the stock 1800 but something about the 450 in the nose that really shapes the wake. It's always super clean and my boy rides at 21-22 and has a clean wake also. Such a great boat for my family and my riding...

Andrew - Congrats on the new boat homi!

Yeah I definitely love how clean and crisp the wake looks. I would pay you for a tow if you are ever down in Southern utah!

how come MB does not do the nose ballast like epic boats? would it help? can you gravity feed the nose?
Old     (ixfe)      Join Date: Aug 2008       04-25-2012, 11:01 PM Reply   
I don't think you can gravity feed the nose because it's above the waterline.
Old     (johnny_defacto)      Join Date: Sep 2006       04-26-2012, 12:29 AM Reply   
what about a little scupper at the intake hole for bow ballast, that way you could fill when idling forward even though half or so of the ballast tank would be above water line???

I know that when moving forward on MB's system, you empty the tanks, and sitting still you fill... but you could just fill the front tank when moving and drain when sitting still. Not a big deal, ANYTHING is better than having to have a fat sac on the seats with a fill pump and hose over the side with you or a buddy having to burp that thing.

Maybe in the 2013...???

I do like your pop-up ski pylon that sits flush when down.... I hate that about malibu, when you put it down, it still sticks up an inch or two... that never made sense to me. your pylon is the bee's knees

Good pics Josh... Good times on Sunday, that water didn't suck! Lets do it again!
Old     (downfortheride)      Join Date: Jun 2005 Location: SLC, UT 5600'       04-26-2012, 5:36 PM Reply   
D. Hor ~ You know we have all summer with Epic as usual... It's like our Sunday church on the water! Thanks for the spicy beer... SO GOOD!
Newhite ~ Front ballast would be the BEST addition to 2013/2014 I think. Let's hope they figure it out! Also speakers for the driver and port passenger, I have to crank the tunes just to get a peak of whats playing when driving. I will be adding some speaker real quick after the 12V plug in front to fill the bag and the bluetooth for the radio.

I just got my tower inserts back from the powder coat shop... So glad I went with this option to break up the color of the tower a little. Also added a 12V plug in the bow so filling the front ballast is a breeze by yourself. Also added a Bluetooth Receiver for the raido, NO MORE CORDS!

Where did the white cover come from?

Came from MB... Stoked when I seen it's not black! Maybe my dealer ordered it, I never had the option. I always just assumed it was coming black.

That is a pretty nice looking stock cover. Looks pretty similar quality to an Evolution cover. Is it made out of sunbrella?

They are commercial sewing covers. Similar to factory malibu cover. Definitely inferior to Evolution cover.

Installed Starboard front just behind the speaker... Direct wire to the batt with a inline fuse.

Wonder if the X2 integrated bow sack would work up there under the seats. Should be easy to plumb one bag to fill. I think I heard the factory would set up a switch but not add the through hull because of legal reasons. Drilling the holes is not that big of deal and bam every thing is auto.
