Dealer delivered Saturday before last. We took it out then and then the wife and I braved the weather and ran it an hour or so last Sunday.
All in all, it is everything advertised and more and we haven't even hooked a rope to it.

What color registration letters?
Please suggest an anchor for Lake Guntersville, fairly soft bottom, lot's of weeds in some areas.

Great looking boat! Love the graphics on the back of it too! Registration letters? I would suggest domed chrome to match the Moomba lettering on the side of the boat. That's what I plan to do. Enjoy your boat, it's almost summer!

nice! for the letters i would get bubble letters, black epoxy on chrome, or solid bubble chrome to match the side.

I use one of these, http://www.overtons.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?pdesc=Greenfield-Coated-American-Yachting-Fluke-Style-13-Anchor-for-boats-up-33&i=72108&aID=602A3&merchID=4006

Nice coating to not scratch the boat up and it seems to grab well in most lake bottoms.

For Reg Letters i went with https://3dlettering.com/wiki.aspx/Home 35 bucks both sides

Also for the Moomba font you can go http://shop.domednumbers.com/ 70 bucks both sides.

Ohh yea, congratz on the new boat and welcome.

Sharp looking ride! Very nice!

Do you mind if I ask why you picked the LSV versus the Mojo?

I am just wondering as I made the mistake of dropping into our local Tige dealer and saw the RZ2 ($$$)

I had an '03 Natique Team edition that I bought brand new and sold it to finish a new house, fell across and picked up my current '02 (low low hours) Moomba last year and fell in love with the way it rides, then proceeded to dump a bunch of money into it (stereo, perfect pass, on board charger, new ballast system...zipppp...)

Going to run my '02 this season but if I have another good year, I maybe looking new again and it is hard to beat the Moomba dollars per fun factor.

Just wondering what the main differences are between the two and what options did you get on your boat.

The nearest Moomba dealer from me is about an hour and a half away

Thanks for everyone for the kind words.
You guys are getting in my wallet, I think I will have a box anchor and chrome letters ordered before I log off. Thanks for the suggestions.

Delivery time, I put a deposit on the boat at the end of January but didn't have colors and options picked out till February 17 and he delivered it to the lake on April 6.
Options are few, on board charger, transom remote, cooler (not sure why I did that), bow cusion and tower speakers are about it. It also has the swing in board holders on the tower, not sure if that is an option or not.

Mojo vs. Mobius: My dealer really steered me toward the Mobius. The wife didn't like the bow and the Mobius is really all my garage will hold. We will normally be a group of 3-5 so no more room was really needed.

Doss, congrats love the red color and partial to the chrome with splash graphics.

cooler (not sure why I did that)

You'll love it! They are 1st rate coolers and you can fill it at the house from the refrigerator and easily transport it to the tow rig then into the boat and store it wherever is most convenient for your crew. And, it will hold ice all weekend long!

nice rig congrads love the graphics

Looking good!

Be thankfull you actually got your boat....I ordered mine up the same time and the dealer keeps pushing back my delivery date multiple times and now I think were into May. I've been trying to get a date and an explanation for the delays and now they won't even respond back to me despite emails to the salesman and a voicemail to the sales manager from my local dealer (McLaughlins ~ The Fun Dealer!) in Fargo, ND. I'm not impressed one bit at this point...So much for getting any level of customer service from the dealer.
