This thing is amazing. The fit and finish is top notch. rides amazing
The last two months I’ve been surfing and driving a buddy’s 18 G25 So I wasn’t sure what I would expect but man I’m in so glad I went with the RI257.

Saw that one at the Detroit boat show. It’s very impressive.

I'm not sure I'd want to deal with that much black... But I will say if I saw that thing in person and was ready to buy, I'd definitely be bringing it home with me.

Congrats that thing is sick!

Well the fill and empty times take forever compared to the Ram fill. the boat hardy turns and it’s a very wet ride if there is any wind at all. Plus the room inside felt like I was in a 22’ boat compared to the centurion.

Boat looks HUMONGOUS next to that gal!!! I've always loved black boats... They aren't everyone's cup of tea, but look so good when done right!

Love it, building a detached garage for my boat right now which is a Centurion SV244....and making garage big enough to fit one of these beasts in the future!

“White is the new black”

What does this even mean? 🤣

Red is the new green, BTW.

All white wakeboard boats are boring as hell. If I want an all white boat I’ll go buy a Sea Ray cruiser like the rest of the non-athletic boating world.

You, my friend, are a grump. Sounds like you fancy yourself as athletic, but a grump nonetheless.

Lighten up bro!

Blue is the new red, BTW.

I had an all white boat in 2008. Because u could hardly do all black back then. White is cool but pretty boring.

Lake Travis is such a clean water lake that it’s so easy to clean. Maybe once a month use ducky spot remover and is good. But black just makes it easy to se so u clean it before it’s bad

So I gotta ask, is the Black hot in the Texas Sun?
Old     (spolk69)      Join Date: Aug 2008       05-29-2018, 7:18 PM Reply   
The floor is not hot but the brown interior is pretty hot without towels down. But I always put towels down. The black is easier for me to keep clean because u see all the spots and scum everyday so u wipe it down when done. My last boat had a lot of white and u would not fell like u need to clean it until it was so water spotted it took forever to clean.

Were you at Lake Travis 2 weekends ago in party cove? Heck we may have even been on the same tie up in the afternoon. We have the blue metal flake Moomba Mojo on the other end by the inflatable bull.
