I know Surf Expo is not a full boat show - did you notice the great boat displays this year?

Share your pics and rate your best booth.

That Tige looks sharp with all the lights hitting it. The color combo is really nice on the Tige also.

1 vote for Tige based on the pictures!

The displays were all nice, but the new paint scheme and graphics on the Tige wins hands down!

Looks like Tige went all out - Great looking boat, I love the color choice. I also like the colors on the black and green boat on the banner - Very Nice Tige!

tige for sure
it would seem a no-brainer for me cuz I'm a tige owner, but the new boats look nothing like mine and i love it.

Speaking of the new towers, my experience with the Malibu tower when I turn around to pick up a rider we are always fighting the rope with the boards in the rack. Has this design helped in any way?

Im real sorry but that tige just reminds me too much of a cross between an xstar and a VLX. (pickle fork nose/illusion tower)

That Tige is SICK! There is a RZ that showed up on the river we ride on. Looks sharp in the water.

does that centurion have the same roswell tower as the new nautiques do?

D.F.T.R.-> As long as you have boards in the racks, there should not be a huge issue. In my experience, it was about the same as any other boat I have driven.

And being a Malibu guy, I would vote for Tige on the booth display. The gel scheme on the boat is sick too. The tower just looks a bit too small on that boat. Pretty nice setup though.

Wow, that Supreme written on the side might be the most boring thing I have ever seen. I like the tower. Looks like the same one Calabria uses? The lines look OK, just kind of bland.

Here are more pictures of the Nautique booth.

What was your thoughts of the Supreme in person? Does anyone know if the Centurion and Nautique towers are the same Roswell tower?
Old     (wetsounds1)      Join Date: Jan 2006       09-18-2008, 12:29 PM Reply   
The Centurion and Nautique's are different towers. Roswell on the Nautique and I have heard, not 100% that the Centurion is built in house.

The Nauti tower is a bent pipe with sheet metal connecting. The Centurion is a cast tower like the Malibu and new Tige towers.

Oh and one more vote for the Tige!

The speakers look awesome molded into that tower Sorry couldn't resist.

Centurion casts their own tower based off of the Metcraft which is the builder for Malibu. The SAN tower is aluminum tubing with gussets welded in = two completely different towers.

By the way the new Wake Series V226 from Supreme is amazing in person - HUGE freeboard - and more interior space than most 24's! Can't wait to see the finished product.

Sweet! Thanks guys. Centurion told us that they were building them but when I saw them on this thread they looked so similar. I like the sound of the way Centurion is building theirs though and I am a fan of the new towers.

My vote is definately for the Tige booth!!! With the new graphics, the sick tower and all the changes, it looks like it is time for me to trade in my 07.

All I know is that Byerly Edition 210 has got to be the best looking boat ever. I love all the little details on the boat. Sick, sick, sick. I love it.

I guess this truely is the year of copying the malibu tower. sure hope they patened that

Am I the only one who noticed the interior on the Tige? Boy have they stepped it up for '09.

The fit and finish is top notch, the design is integrated with the gel coat scheme and the reps at Surf Expo were telling me the vinyl has a protection on it that cleans easily, even tough stains like a Sharpie.

From the vote goes to the Nautique booth. Built in docks, wall of banners, and videos.

This is truely the year that Metcraft Towers got their design to be widely accepted in the towboat industry. Some of their earlier towers found on 1999-2002 Tiges were not great but they have really stepped it up in recent years. The details on the Tige Z tower are impressive. (built in lights and pivot towpoint with interior light.) Great products from a hard-working family business.

The Tige booth has to get my vote.

I just thought I would pop in and clarify that the new Nautique tower is not exactly bent pipe and sheet metal as stated above.

We use T-6061 series Aluminum 2 3/8" tubing and the same T-6061 billet aluminum plate to manufacture the new FCT3 for Correct Craft.

I'm with Jesse! After seeing all the changes Tige made this year I'm ready to part with my 06 22ve and get an 09!

The first pickle fork actually came out in 1949. I don't think that Tige' copied MC on that!

A vote for the Centurion booth..........can you imagine that

The Byerly Boat is pretty sick but I heard it has a pretty sick price tag of about $92,000. I don't know guys!!
Old     (mtpockets)      Join Date: Aug 2007       09-20-2008, 9:35 AM Reply   
$82,500 + tax

Kayla I know your right but Im talking strictly inboards not sterndrives or hydros or anything like that. I could be wrong but in that sense I believe MC was the first to make a pickle fork out of there inboard tournament boats. I love all boats too and Tige's a great company I just feel that IMO that new Tige looks like it stemmed from a Malibu and an Xstar. Just my worthless 2cents haha
