After test driving most of the end of summer, and some of the fall, and researching, and dreaming forever, we finally got our boat. Just spent 2 hours sitting in it, listening to tunes in our garage, as it dumped snow outside lol!!! The pic is from when we test drove it in Aug.Upload

Nice boat!

I've spent many hours drinking beer in the boat in our storage unit waiting for rain to stop. Good times!

Of course we don't have to wait out snow down here in Texas. I'd go crazy with that baby in the garage all winter!

Chris,

That's the best part, building up that excitement for the next summer. Congratulations and best of luck keeping that thing winterized and out of the water ;)

Chris,
Great looking boat and congrats! I remember when we brought our baby home. My bro and I sat in it all night waiting for sunrise so we can take it out. One of the best feelings in the world.
Man, it's gonna be a long winter for you. lol
Congrats again.

I make out of the way trips through the garage on my way n and out just to walk by it. Should have seen what a pain it was to get in there.

Congrats Chris..... I bought a leftover '08 VTX this past spring and absolutely love it... If you're into surfing pick up a couple fat sacs for the rear locker/seat.... Nothing beats finally having that new rig sitting on your own property! Enjoy..

Chad do you have weight in the bow?

I'm thinking about piggy backing some 400lbs sacks in the back lockers.

I also need to get a sub and amp for it.

Thank you , I left a message for you at the shop. Brain did a terrific job, and we really appreciate the service. Now I just have to schedule a de-winterizing for early april.

Chris,
I do have stock ballast in the bow, wake hull and power wedge. I picked up 2 fly high X2 sacs and they make a huge difference for getting a really nice surf wake. Stock ballast is more then enough for my wakeboarding ability right now. I think the x2's are 450lbs, They fit the rear locker with a little space to spare. Beauty of a 20' boat is it doesn't take a bunch of weight to get a great wake. I just used the tsunami pump this summer and was pleasantly surprised with how quickly it filled and emptied the sac's.....Nice colour combo on your boat

I'm thinking of getting a tsunami pump and 300lbs bag for up front. How much room do the fat sacks leave you?

Thanks, yeah I love the color scheme.

The X-2 sac's 450lbs(I think) leave enough room you're not worried about them being squished or rubbing on anything. You could probably get a little bit bigger sac and let it fill and form to the locker? I guess the VTX locker is a little bigger than the X-2 locker? The reason I got the x-2 sac's was because there were 2 450lbs sac's, as apposed to 1 fly high that was a little bit bigger, for roughly the same price. The 2 sac's give me a few more option's for weight placement depending who's with us for surfing.
