Just signed up this morning. Gotta give props for an awesome site. Lots of niiiice boats and some good info.
Just starting to get into boarding and also picked up a new boat. 2006 Tahoe Q4 sport (19'5, 4.3). Its not great for boarding, but it pulls a 220+lb. rider up easily and should be a good boat for me to learn on. Keep up the great work on the site!

Here's a quick pic of the boat and tow rig. Have only had it 2 weeks now. Still waiting to get the tower speakers, amp and subs installed along w/board mounts. Oh and the matching trailer wheels are already on the way(18s for the trailer, 20s on truck)

Sorry for the small pic, I guess I screwed up resizing it.

Thanks for the welcome guys and gals.
From what I could tell its a great place to answer my questions! I am enjoying the fire out of it. Only had it out twice now, but it pulls really well and the wake isn't terrible. Nothing a couple fat sacs won't cure.

My last boat was a Tahoe Q5. We had a great time with it. To get the wake looking nice, a locker-sac is essential. We also had a 600 lb fatsac in front of the rear seats, but with a boat the size of yours, that might not be necessary for a good shape. Make sure you trim up a little over an eighth, it makes the wake nice and lippy.

Moved on to the 04' Tige Switch V this year. Could not be happier.

Thanks for the advice Garret. I was figuring on a sac in the same place and one 200-300 or so in the ski locker. From what I could tell with just me(I go 265) and 2 other 200+ guys in it, it had a nice shape to it. Thanks for the advice on the trim, I'll try that this weekend.

Yea I'm gonna hang onto this one for a couple years(picked it up just to get my feet wet and see how I'd stick w/boarding) and then upgrade to a Supra 21V. My dream boat!
