Welcome skyskier...I went down that stretch before I knew not to do so. I would still probably do it and I dont know why.

Ewing.....now that DNR is patrolling the warm side I really worry about getting busted for going under that bridge. No one worried about it before because DNR did not have access to put their boat in. I know one guy who rode there 2 years and never even bothered to register his boat!

Wait a minute....you're saying you can't cruise down that stretch anymore? Have they put 'No Wake Zone' buoys in there?

Oh, and skyskier, you should know by now that I have no point. But, by responding to my nonsense, you've just increased that stat to 3/5 of your total posts...

Either that or you stole that shirt from some pre-college teen.

My stomping ground...........route 31 (formerly route 69!)

Rdog if my boat sells soon I will water test the 22SSV and decide. If it does not sell most likely a VLX.

Dave W. be cautious of Slacker he is smarter than he looks

Ewing, although I've never been behind a new one, Rob @ The Boat Shop on Anna said the new 22SSV is nothing like old one. The new 22SSV is a whole new hull. Its supposed to be huge, but not as steep.

When you get serious John, I'll take you out for a ride.

I have not ridden behind the new Supras, but have always liked LT's, and Dan's when he owned it. No complaints.

Rdog and how do they compare to the VLX, similar?
Old    Dan Smith (dansmith)      Join Date: Aug 2006       02-10-2008, 3:23 PM Reply   
If the VLX is anything like the LSV, then no, they are not similar. The LSV is rampy. The SSV is steep. IMO, in order from rampy to steep you have:

LSV -> my MB -> X1 -> old SSV -> SAN210

The difference between mine, the X1 and Pete's is small, but the SAN210 throws you and the LSV takes forever to ride up.
I'm not sure where the VLX or your vRide fall into the category as I've never been behind them.

Thanks dan now I have a little something to go by.

If Ray would hire Rdog there would be Supra's everywhere or at least pictures everywhere. I think Rdog is part chinese.

Ewing......if you load extra weight into the rear lockers only on the LSV, you will still have the long ramp, but also a steep kicker at the lip.

Why not check with Rob at The Boat Shop at Lake Anna (Ray's satellite) and see if he has a 22SSV he is willing to demo? Great excuse to come to the lake this weekend!

Thought about that but I guess I need to talk to Rob. Ray made it sound like he calls the shot's they are "his boats."

I am sure someone has already told you, but you will find Rob to be very accommodating. Also, Rob's shop is right at the ramp, so much easier for him to demo.
Also, when I talked with Jimmy H.( a friend of Rob's) about a month ago, he said he was picking up a demo boat from Ray soon, but he did not know which one. You might want to see what he has. If it's 22SSV I am sure he would demo for you. He lives on the lake and is legendary for his general goodness.

Last time I was there (December w/ Brian aka natter), he had a Sunsport 22V, which is basically the 22SSV w/ a slightly different seating layout. You may want to give him a call. He may still have it there.

There is a fire at Anna? Is it as dry there as it has been up here the past year? Because if there was a fire here I swear it could burn a square mile in a matter of minutes.

I told you guys to quit smoking in the woods behind your house. Now look what you did.

Long range forecast has 62 for next Monday. We'll just have to keep an eye on things.

On the subject of legitimacy, I think the only thing that could make this thread 100% legitimate would be the appearance of tmorganti & his hot wife. I haven't heard from him since the "I'm mailing them out today" debacle...
