Dane, ya the interior is tan. I had to match to Esco! :-)

dsmalls, I just liked the Tige' tower better. It's super stable and you can fit tons of "bling-bling" on it because it's wider than the Wake Designs.

Nice looking 22V. Watch out for those dark spots on the back deck vinyl. They will get hot!!!

Porter, Very nice boat.

I have the wake designs tower on my 22V and I like it. but there customer service SUCKS and I do not normally use that kind of language but that is actually being nice.

do you wish you would have gone with the tige' tower? why did you pick wake designs over tige' in the still wrestling with this decision.

one more question...

is either tower an upgrade? and does either come with board racks or are they extra?

okay...that was two questions
Old     (brd4fun)      Join Date: May 2002       02-28-2003, 2:57 PM Reply   

The wake designs tower was a bit of an upgrade and and came with a set of wake design board racks. I actually had pro mounts for 2 sets of racks and a pair of tower speakers added. great idea but if you do that order everything at once from Tige or you will defanitely regret it. I could say more but I will not bore you with details.

Porter....I've got my 6th Tige now......Just happens to be a 22V like yours with the same tower. I was wondering where you got the bimini? Mine doesn't allow enough space for lights and speakers between the tower and bimini, hence mine are on top.

quit whining about the weather and get your arse out there with us. I shouldn't have to be the only one listening to Hahn's incessant ramblings.

Awesome looking boat by the way.

Huge Wake! You have to see it for yourself to really understand how big it is. The pictures don't do it justice!

Hahn, how much weight was in the boat?

By the way, nice boat!!!

Only about 1500 lbs and 4 people. There was a lot more but I was getting booted off!

That's a great looking boat. I helped out our local dealer at the boat show by cleaning up his Tige's before the show. It got me into the show before it started so I could walk around and see the boats before the crowds got there. Anyways, those 22v's seem very solid and well put together. The dealer had a 22v riders and a 22v luxury model. I prefered the riders with the carbon fiber looking dash. I don't like the looks of the wood grain dash in boats. Just personal preferance.

The only thing I didn't like about the boat is how the transom angles into the swim platform. I'm to fat to stand while I'm putting my board on so I have to sit and I could see scratching up the fiberglass. The swim platform was huge on the boats from the show which was really nice, I'd throw a transom saver on the swim platform to keep the scratches to a minimum.

I've been trading my boats in every two or so years but the wife said I can't trade the X-10 in for a couple of more years. After seeing the 22v I'm going to seriously take a look at them when I'm ready to look for another boat in a couple of years. Have Fun.

The wake looks great minus a couple where the water must have been rough. It looks to have a nice peak.

That boat has the new "convex" hull of Tige, right?

That boat naturally weight about 1000 lbs more than other boats, right?

Nice boat Porter! I hope I'm not in your black-ball list, too, 'cause I'm dying to ride behind that! :-)

Yes Dane it does have the new hull and it's just over 1000Lbs heavier than most others.

I know this goes against conventional thinking but if you keep adding weight to the nose of this boat (to a certain point) it will peak up even more.

It does get more peaky if you add weight to the bow. I was skating behind Bobo's boat with Gramps' large arse in the front and it was too much. He moved to the back and it mellowed out a bit.

One thing I've noticed is the wake gets a little more solid with more weight.
