View Full Version : New (to me) Mobius LSV!!!

03-06-2014, 02:57 PM
Having been a member here for a short while gathering information and asking questions for both my own knowledge and to help a friend with his boat projects, I recently pulled the trigger on my first boat. Not my first "moomba", or my first "wake boat", or my first "inboard".....it's my first boat ever. After doing much research, factoring in budget, quality, and versatility...I pulled the trigger on a 2008 Mobius LSV.

I have two young kids that are like fish to water, I've wakeboarded behind friends boats from time to time over the past 10 years, it's a very hot summer in my part of the world, so I figured a boat would be the perfect past time. Plus, my schedule has me working most weekends so riding along with friends has been becoming more and more difficult thus making boat ownership a more viable option.

So, apart from being thrilled to have a boat, I'm equally excited in starting the mods! I have the fortune of being mechanically inclined, own an extensive set of tools, and love being in the garage tinkering. Also, and most important, I (we) have this wealth of knowledge, information, and tutorials on this forum. I'm already planning: ballast upgrade, heater install, new trailer wheels and adding a spare, cooler mod, to name a few.

A big thanks to everyone on this forum for sharing, participating, and giving someone like me the courage to take the plunge!

Even though it sounds like you've been around the forum for a while already, I will still say "welcome" because it feels a lot better when you have chips (er, boat) in the game!!

EricU....LOL...I just "performed" my first official "mod"...I jumped right in on the cozie buy! I'd like to get a couple of the suction cup ones I've read about, hopefully they'll be another group buy on those in the future.

And patrick232, I'm in North Mississippi, previous owner had boat in TN.

I was actually looking at that exact boat before I bought my mojo. I bet you got a good deal as it's for sale for a bit. Congrats and welcome.

Wow, thanks everyone for the warm welcome and nice words! I think 996scott summed things up well and is what I'm looking most forward to...quality family time. Seems like a lot of genuine family men/women on this forum and I'm excited to be a part of that.
