It's official we are moving to Skiers Choice and ordered a 2016 Moomba Craz. Working with my local shop Marine Products here in UT as always will be a breeze and wonderful service. Pretty much fully loaded so I won't bore you with an outrageous list of options it will have. We decided to go with the classic pattern to really show the long lines of this boat. Colors will be metal flake main, white accents, black hull, and sitting on a black boatmate trailer. Opted out of the big bad ass wheels but I'm not too worried. Interior will be a lot of white to help with the Lake Powell 95+ deg days and I know Boat Bling will help me keep it bright and clean. We are so stoked for opportunity and can't wait to meet more of the Skiers Choice family.

Here's a quick example of what the boat will look like with the flake and black chrome emblems.

Defector, LMAO! I guess that is true since once having my MB. Still love that wake but it's made sense to move to Skiers Choice since the shop I ride for sells the Moomba/Supra line. Now to work my way up into a new SA!
I will be able to offer this boat to somebody else towards the end of the season also. Mostly why I ordered pretty much everything on the Craz. Stoked for this season and the opportunity to join Skiers Choice and Marine Products.

Thanks man! Pretty stoked to get it here in UT just about time for the lakes to warm up a little. We did switch to the striker scheme so it's going to look quite a bit different now. Still stuck with the white, gun metal flake, and black hull.

I absolutely love the Striker scheme w/decals!!!

What worries me is the longevity of all the decals. Waxing around them, etc...

It wouldn't be an issues if the scheme looked good without the stickers, but without the stickers, it looks a bit odd.

Im kinda stuck on weather to order the Striker theme with decals or stick to the classic theme for longevity.

S-Bend or Aviator Tower? I like the S-Bend but not a big fan of the Aviator. Looks awesome with the Z5 even though it's an expensive option.

Here's the updated pics as of today that should answer a few of the questions. Ballast will be 1300 in the rear, 700 mid tank & 500 bow bag...

Is there much of a difference between the Craz and Mojo?
Old    Patrick Castro (patrick232)      Join Date: Aug 2008       03-16-2016, 4:00 AM Reply   
Mark, there is a 1 foot difference between the Craze and Mojo. The main difference is the traditional bow of Craze and the box or wide bow of the Mojo.

After 3 years with the wider bow (MB F21) I'm stoked to go back to the traditional with the Craz. Still a crazy big bow and with a 500 bag that fits under the seat we are set. Can't wait to play with this bad boy in person. Thank you everybody for the kind words with us making the switch to Skiers Choice. Summer of 2016 will be a good one. SC and www.marine-products.com have been awesome to work with!

I am definitely aware of the length and bow difference. I was referring to his comment of "favorite to ride behind"

Are the wakes significantly different?

It is basically everything awesome from the MOJO and just put into a new 22 foot size. Same ballast, same engine, similar interior, slightly different bow. We got to go out on a CRAZ last night and it was awesome!

Josh, is the bimini on the s-bend tower as much of a PITA to set up as the aviator 2? It's about a 10 step process to set up and helps to have two sets of hands. But, it's great once you get it in place. It's nice and high and plenty big. And the surf pockets are a nice feature. I do have a few concerns about wear and tear on the aluminum parts tho from having to re-position the legs, etc.

I've setup both styles once and hands down the S Bend is much easier to setup. My first experience with the A2 was at the boat show and I can tell you I looked like an idiot trying to figure that thing out. After they told me to setup the top supports first then do the side supports and found out they watched me struggle at the boat show, LOL. Now the SB did take me an extra set of hands but I'm sure I will figure out the secrete once I actually use it.
Not that this is a huge thing or not but the "dome" light on the SB is kick a$$! Looks like the Z5 will block that light but haven't seen one installed yet. I have 2 small LED lights and the dome pretty much shines on the whole cockpit floor while leaving the bow dark which is a must for night driving.

DFTR.... Looks awesome. I assume the SBend is the same or similar to the Supra setup? Once you get the hand of you you can do it much quicker and by yourself.

You are correct! Just like my MB, took me a few but I figured out the 1 man operation. I do like how simple it is...

You will love the 18's Mark, being this is a personal demo and will be sold this summer they were a little more then I wanted to invest. Just pulled the Craz 12 hours total over the weekend and it was perfect. Pretty sure the 18's have a better speed rating, I kept the speeds 75 and below.

Got the Craz out for a good run for the break in on Lake Powell. Sitting just over 9 hours and pretty much ready to fill the ballast and see what she can do!

Thanks Diggs! Somebody's going to have one hell of a boat this season when I put it up on the market this summer. Now that the break in is pretty much completed it's time to get some riding shots. 47 deg water in UT has to get a little warmer though.

Congrats on the sale J, your Sanger was a damn nice looking boat. You can't take it yet... Break in is almost there then it's oil change time and LOAD it up. I can't wait to get wake pics of this bad boy. PM me all your info and I'll throw you on the contact list for buyers...

Sounds good! I'll message you right now. I'll be a cash buyer btw. No loan, no nonsense to deal with. So give me a good deal! Lol

I don't really need another boat, I sold mine because I don't have time for it. But a deal is deal 😂

Added a little more white to the Craz yesterday. I've always wanted to fill the letters in my wind dam and finally made it happen.

Well the break in is finally done! Got out to throw the stock weight at the Craz and I can't wait. Water is still a little chilly and the weekend forecast have been horrible. Right now we are rolling stock with 1300 rear, 700 mid, and 500 in the nose. I'm quite happy with the Raptor 400 and 15" x 13 prop, no problem at all pushing the weight. Next step is a sun shine day and brave the low 50 water...

This boat exceeds my expectations by far compared to my last boat. I have only been using stock ballast since this is a demo boat and I will leave it up to the new owner on what weight they will use. This is truly the do it all family boat and more! Just took a ski family out yesterday and they were very impressed with the ski wake for a 22' V drive boat. The surf with stock is amazing and can only imagine when weighted right it would be pro level. The auto flow 2.0 works wonders with evenly weighted but I have found I have to move peeps the the surf side to really clean up the wave. The wakeboard wake is perfect and will send you flying into any trick you have. My craz is close to being under contract with so many more to give demo's with families.

Ski wake at 34 mph

Well the white and black Craz went the the first family that took it for a demo. Ended up picking up a black and blue Craz which was also for sale and had it less then 48 hours before it was on a demo and taken by it's new owners. Pretty sure it was the smile of the little ones that sold the parents seeing their kids really enjoying the water. Wanted a little more time with this one since it was out of my comfort zone with colors. Got 2 hours on it and can't wait till I get a chance to order a new one with different colors then normal I think. Picking up a new boat tomorrow and pretty stoked on this one since it's a boat I haven't got a chance to ride yet.
