Hey guys,

Been on the board for a little bit. Figured it was time to share my boat.

That things sick! How are the kicker tower speakers? Can you hear them well? I'm thinking about getting some myself.

For the price of those speakers, they are fantastic! I wouldn't put them up against wetsounds or exile because they are not a true HLCD speaker, but you can hear them while riding and sound great while hanging out in a cove. Not to mention they are about a third of the price!

I'm running the Kicker ZXM 450.2 as recommended by Kicker. However, any amp that puts 225 to each speaker will be good.

That's a good looking boat man! Don't see many boats on my lake with more than 2 boards, which usually means the boats have like 2/10 people that actually ride. Glad to see all those board on there, that means you guys actually board!! Wink

Thanks for the compliments guys. It's a work in progress since the boat was in pretty bad shape when I got her last spring. It's getting better and better. Ballast system and upholstery will be the final touch this winter.

Definitely true about the boards. We all ride when we are out, even the kiddos. It breaks my heart to see a brand new wakeboard boat with no boards, or even worse, a tube! Evil or Very Mad

I still need to get a rack for the surfboard too. It's down below Smile

CincyVLX, As a person who dreams of someday owning ANY boat of my own, let alone one like this, I'm glad to see you guys actually use it. Always frustrating to see empty board racks.

GnarShredd,

Thanks man! We try to use it as much as you can. I started pretty small and we were able to upgrade last year. I did a lot of the work myself, as I did on my first boat, which I'll throw a picture in of that one as well. It was a 1985 ski supreme that I completely restored inside and out. I love nothing more than taking something that someone else has mistreated and bringing it back to life!

CincyVLX, that blue/black board is sexy right there. I love riding beside these huge X-Stars and SAN's with no boards, when I always have at least 4 in the racks on my boat!

Ps205Rider, That was the old LF Shane 140 with the limited edition boots. I loved that setup, but I've since switched to riding the Hyperlite Marek BIO 140 with team bindings. We were in Norris last weekend and there were 3 x-stars on the water pulling tubes. No boards in their racks either.
