alright here we go:
rider is 5'10"
riding at 90 feet (yep!)
~1000lbs plus stock ballast plus two people.
i only have a shot of this side of the wake, but it was weighted properly (evenly) and the boat was driving straight.

Whatever it is its a great wake

If he is riding at 90 foot and 23mph it must be a narrow wake. X-1, SAN or V210.

With the square lip it looks like a V210 to me.

Doubt its a MC. 90' is a long way back at 23mph for a any MC.

My guess is SAN.

90 ft dang. i remember when randy used to ride that long but he would go 28 or 29 miles an hour. that wake has to be a new vlx with the speedo alittle off runnin the wedge.

I'm going with a Supra as well
Old     (wakebordr11)      Join Date: May 2001       10-24-2005, 8:32 PM Reply   
that lip looks like a supra lip for sure but I am not convinced... Ive been 75 feet back at 22 though on a 22ssv, with stock ballast (not gg bags) is it possible that is only 23mph and 2k+ weight???
Not sure if its possible to run an X-2 at 23 to 90 ft, it would be one hell of a wide wake no? How about the LSV??

-edit, how about an 80s 2001 Nautique or a mid 90s sport????

Its a great wake from a narrow boat.
Old     (jarrod)      Join Date: May 2003       10-24-2005, 9:36 PM Reply   
at 90' behind my X2 you would have to ride at about 25+, unless you wanted to hit some wash. And I run about 2400 lbs.

thinking more about what i posted here's some updates. i'll edit my original post to reflect the changes for anyone reading the thread for the first time...

speet set at 23.4 mph.
between ~1200lbs and ~1500lbs added in the form of fat sacks. definitely not more than 1500lbs. i forgot about the added bow sack in my original post. my apologies.

i'll see if i can find more pics to post.

It must be a magenta Mastercraft 2001. Definitely magenta... I can tell the color of the boat by the way the wake curls at about 105 ft off. There are so many variations that can change the wake... nothing but luck can guess the boat by the wake.

how about Centurian Avalanche, resembles the shape pretty closely if I do say so, Centurian wake is clean at 22 at 75... still not sure if I could ride at 90 at 23.4 on an Avalanche though... Im pretty sure you could ride at 90 at 23.4 behind an Nauti 2001 but that boat has no stock ballast sooo maybe an Airnautique

that's not a boat wake...that's a swell off Pt Loma at high tide
Old     (liquidmx)      Join Date: Jun 2005       10-25-2005, 11:28 PM Reply   
The thing I like about the wake is it appears versatile; meaning if someone is B!tching about too rampy let the rope out, if someone complains about too much vert, bring em in. Either way they are still around 80+ feet out so their feelings dont get hurt, lol.

I am currently debating purchasing a boat after my graduation and I have been doing a ton of research on used boats, curious to see what this is, and if I can afford it?

epic boat
Old     (laptom)      Join Date: Apr 2002       10-26-2005, 4:12 AM Reply   
I'm with Joe. Epic 23V

I believe that a SAN with stock + 1200lbs has a larger wake... But it's as rampy as a SAN. So a Sanger V210 or an Epic in my opinion.

kyle you can go F yourself! you knew what boat it was in the first place. you win nothing. haha

here's a shot of the dash. i was quite impressed and happy with it because there is a ton of information and it was arranged very nicely. left gauge is RPM with digital readout of the vital engine info (oil pressure, battery volts and hour meter). the three smaller middle gauges are fuel, engine temp and power wedge angle. the right gauge is speedo with digital readout of the water/air information (water depth, air temp and water temp). driving one of these for the first time was sick. the digital readout on top toggles between the ballast and the cruise control. the cruise never went more than a mph lower than the set speed when i was turning (though i never drove any double ups). me likey a lot!

I love that boat. I have never even been inside an actual wake boat, let alone ride behind one, but i am in love with the malibu lsv. I would buy one just for the looks of the tower alone.

That is one sick a$$ boat. I got to give it up to Malibu, boat looks great and the wake is as sick as it gets at 90 at 23. All I can say is WOW!!

Scott, next time you want to have a little contest of guess the wake, maybe you shouldn't call me when you're out on said boat to ask me how to use it?

maybe just a six pack for the info I gave you that day then?

No PP just Malibu Cruise?
Old     (wakestar8878)      Join Date: Oct 2003       10-26-2005, 4:25 PM Reply   
Why would you need PP, if you have Malibu Cruise Control? IMO the Malibu system on my Uncle's '06 VLX is by far superior.

Just curious how the Malibu Cruise compares to PP
Old     (wakestar8878)      Join Date: Oct 2003       10-26-2005, 4:39 PM Reply   
Also, I just remembered that all the Malibu's are now "throttle by wire," meaning that there is no cable, which is why malibu and MC had to come up with their own systems, and were able to get around PP's patent.

Easy to use
Bright large display

That boat has nice lines. I have read several good things about that boat and it does look pretty tight, but orange? I guess your just in time for halloween!
Old    getsumonya            10-27-2005, 7:59 AM Reply   
Only problem I've seen with the Malibu Cruies is it would reset when the engine was turned off.
So we had to turn the cruise back on each time the key was turned off to change riders and whatnot.

Brad I hear you on that one but, at least the boat doesn't have to be in neutral to turn the cruise on.
Old     (greatdane)      Join Date: Feb 2001       10-27-2005, 11:06 PM Reply   
Wow. I am amazed at that wake. Thats a vert wake.

And, with the 87 gallon fuel tank, you will only need $275 per fill up!
Old     (big_ed_x2)      Join Date: Jul 2004       10-28-2005, 10:02 AM Reply   
Shawn I rather set it once in neutral then having to turn it on everytime a different rider goes in the water.Most of the time I don't even turn my PP off at all,so it always ready to go.
Old     (greatdane)      Join Date: Feb 2001       10-28-2005, 10:13 AM Reply   
It sounds like they have the power wired wrong. That should be easy to correct. A reset every time the engine is turned off would be a major bummer for those of us (most of us) that turn the boat off whenever we change riders.

I agree it sucks to have to turn it on everytime, but all it comes down to pushing one button right in front of you on the dash.

What I'm really trying to say is that, sometimes I'll forget to turn my PP on, start to pull a rider then have to stop, or wait until the rider falls to turn the PP back on. So therefore I like the fact that the boat doesn't have to be in neutral to turn on the Malibu Cruise.
