Sold my 17 SA400 to my buddy and did a pass through at my local dealer the Slalom Shop...shout out to CHRIS C. over there. Has every available option Supra offers except a triple axle trailer.

Added 500 lbs of lead and took it out yesterday for the 1st time. Unbelievable!!! I cannot describe the 575 Raptor its unreal. So much power and the whine of that supercharger is fing awesome. Fully loaded 4000lbs and it jumps on plane. 6 pump ballast system is so much faster. The surf wave is huge with, tons of push, a great lip and way longer than my SA. Peanut butter interior is not unbearably hot even in 100 degree Texas weather.

Heres a few photos more to come. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180827/4f265908f900a60b8495ed523aa62b9c.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180827/84325c241d069852742b70a15241f477.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180827/9efd443bb5c0b68e4d3cc860244380b0.jpg

I'm in Prosper and we are Ray Roberts people. We do Broken Bow 6 or 7 times a year as well. My best friend and his wife that bought my SA have a cabin up in Broken Bow. So we block off the dates we want and tow up there with the kids.

PM me. We should meet up in broken bow sometime. That place has really blown up and is crazy now. I love going up there, but it can be crowded on weekends for sure. We are looking into buying a cabin in that area as well. Enjoy the new boat.

Dude, your 2019 SE is going to be sick. I sat in the 2019 SE450 that Slalom Shop has on the showroom floor...it's unreal!! The dash, the screens, the interior and the transom walk through is so incredible!! I can't wait to see pictures of your new float...thats why I figured I better post mine up now because nobody will even car about an old 2018 SL550 once your 2019 SE550 gets posted up :cool:

Super nice boat, I'm generally not a fan of the tan interiors but that looks good in mostly single colour. How's the heat from the black accent? Not bad because of the texture? or hot?

Sweet boat, love the tan interior, identical to mine save for the red piping, love how it ties to the red on the exterior.

The metallic black accent does get a little hot but the tans dont, the textures that Supra uses are so nice in person.

That 575 has to be awesome.

Watch the drivers seat when folding your tower!!!!!! Its a seat pincher if you forget to lower the seat.

The peanut butter interior is not any hotter than grey or even white. The black gets hot, but not blister your arse hot. My 17 SA had some black accents with mostly white and lime green in it so we are use to it.

I'll tell you everyone that has looked at and in my boat says they love the peanut butter interior when they see it.
