The woman I'm buying the boat from has no idea what series boat it is... (she was awarded it in the divorce) Is there any way I can tell which one it is? Here are some pics that might help you guys (and gals) out. Also, can you guys tell if it has automatic ballast by the switches? I can't read what they say.

It's a 2004 model if that helps.

Looks like the Storm 1 package but they added a couple things like bimini, board racks and dual rear ballast.

I would say Storm 1 with upgraded dual rear ballast as it looks like it has 3 switches, and it for sure has 3 intakes right under the platform. So it has the highest 3 tank ballast option. It has standard gel flame pattern and a Pilot 1 gauge with depth, air and water temp and a bunch of other useless info. Those are notorious for going haywire. so don't worry if it doesn't work

Can't tell if it has a flip up bolster driver seat or not.

those are ballast intakes!? seems like you would not be able to fill them up if you were under way?

What is that silver knob in front of all the switches by the throttle?

YUp those should have had mesh screens on them. That Centurion ballast system you can't really fill under way. MY 2000 MC has the same system. And the 4 Centurions I owned before had the same system. 01-02-03-04 all had that same sytem. I only had one pump go bad on me and never had a problem priming them just always put the boat in reverse before hitting the switch to fill. They fill pretty quickl. By the time you get all the gear ready (board down, rope hooked up, feet in bindings) you pretty much ready to go

That silver knob is to adjust your speedos. Sometimes they read to fast or 2 slow. When you get the GPS out you can adjust that dial to have the speedo match the gps reading.

It is a mechanical adjustment for the speedometer, once you GPS your perfect pass you can syncronize the speedometer to match the PP speed display.

Nice feature

Looks like the dual rear ballast to me. The ride plate looks manual which is a pain in the ass, IMO. You better plug that drain hole up in the back.

Looks like Storm II because of the sub woofer and the 3 ballast tanks
Old     (xstarrider)      Join Date: Jun 2007       07-25-2008, 3:06 PM Reply   
Ithought Storm II as well but it has the regular speakers and I thought that sub looked aftermarket.....Could be the pic though

I am thinking those where the speakers in 04 either way it has the storm II stuff

Give me the HIN and I will try and find out what it came with from the factory

FWIW, our 04 Enzo has the same sub, and at least the same speaker covers. But, now I can't remember which ours is, storm 2 or 3. Sorry.

Storm II

storm II, III would include perfect pass. Oh, and dont expect that Faria Pilot system to work
Old     (krbaugh)      Join Date: Mar 2002       07-25-2008, 9:56 PM Reply   
It would be a stroke of luck if the Faria Pilot1 worked. Storm II does not include Perfect pass

IT DOESNT HAVE PERFECT PASS!?? does it have ANY kind of speed control!? ugh. I hope so.

isnt it about a grand to have perfect pass installed?
Old     (krbaugh)      Join Date: Mar 2002       07-26-2008, 9:53 PM Reply   
Today perfect pass has become almost a standard feature......in 2004 not so much. Looking at the dash there is no speed control installed.. Yes PP is at least 1000 probably 1200 or better

I cant even imagine life before perfect pass and cel phones!!!
Old     (crushing76)      Join Date: Feb 2007       07-26-2008, 9:58 PM Reply   
i was hoping that guage on the left of the dash was some sort of speed control.


i'm guessing thats the "not likely to work" faria system? maybe i can get it covered under warranty!!!!
Old     (krbaugh)      Join Date: Mar 2002       07-26-2008, 10:35 PM Reply   
No that gauge had a 1 year warranty. Plus even if you did get it fixed it would not be long for the world. I loved that gauge I used the Digital speedo and depth finder all the time...They just are not very reliable

Ours works...most of the time. I love that guage too, Kevin.
You're right, now I remember that ours was a storm II, but, someone put PP on, and got us the "bling" package w/stainless cup holders and other stuff.
So, maybe now we have a Storm 2.5?

IMO, if you are used to towing people, you don't need pp. On my 2002 Hurricane once you get up to speed, she holds true (until you make a turn). Now, if no experience, you may want pp, but it should not be a deal breaker for you....

I like that storm 2.5

"someone put PP on, and got us the "bling" package w/stainless cup holders and other stuff."

I wonder who that could have been

treycleaton

You don't have to tell me I have never had PP
My wife is an excellent driver!

It's DEFINITELY not a deal breaker, and to be honest, I've never even driven an inboard without PP. I should be able to pull people just fine, but I'm really concerned with the quality of pull #1 gets!!! ME!

Sometimes I get scared when they come back to pick me up. I just tell them not to go faster than idle unless I'm floating face down.

So, I found out that the boat DOES have perfect pass... and the triple ballast... all factory. does that make it a series III?

C.R., by looking at that dash, i don't see the PP, i could be blind but the far right gauge is where mine is and the one in the pic just has the cent logo? the one on the far left is your faria gauge...hmmm..unless it was installed after the pic was taken??
Old     (fish6942)      Join Date: Dec 2005       07-31-2008, 8:02 AM Reply   
My '05 has the same dash. The far right gauge is where PP should be installed (but it is not on this boat).

It may have triple ballast, but I am w/ Jayson, I don't see the perfect pass where it would be normally installed (far right w/ the Centurion logo)

I looked at an older cyclone and it had 'speed control'. Not PP, but like a cruise control. Wonder if it was just RPM based???

Anyways, good luck. Not a deal breaker.
