View Full Version : looking at a 2007 OB V holdover

01-15-2008, 12:33 AM
Looking to join the family, I have been monitoring the site for some time, great info. Need some advice on some options, tower speakers,heater,depth finder, rear transome remote. Better as factory add- ons or do it yourself.

Also, been a skier all my life, slalom and barefoot, learned in 07 to WB. Need advice on a board, currently on an Obrien Demented 141 with recoil. I am a novice but look to get better soon. is tough to teach an old dog new tricks.

An 'ol dog mesef, jm, but hasn't let that stop me. Out first board was an O'Brien Ambush 141. Quickly outgrew that and started buying Liquid Force.
At 180 lbs and 5'10", I ride an Evolution 138 w/ Elements. This is my 3rd season with it and it's still in good shape. Son, 180 lbs, 6'1", rides a Substance 138 w/ Sphinx. Bought his same day I bought mine. He's hard on equipment though. Tantrum, Scarecrow, 540's...just to name a few he throws down. His has held up really well, also. I'd buy LF again.
Hope this helps

All of those can be added post factory. Transom remote and tower speakers are doable after fact. there is a good thread on here about how to run the wires for the tower speakers. Transom remote is more trouble of running wire from back to front than anything.. I hear. Depth finders are fairly easy to install, several posts on here as well.
Main thing I would focus on dealer would be heater. I would not want to tackle that. But does not have to be factory..
