    I never went above 25 mph. Even for a couple mph on top it wouldn’t be worth it. With 4 people in the boat, 1000lbs lead and all ballast full I had to move a couple people up front to get to our 11.6...

    I meant the difference between the previous dual axle to the triple axle trailer. I would guess the new triple is 2000lbs or so. It’s built much heavier than even the triple used in 2020. My old...

    Wife and I were just figuring up how much extra it will cost us this summer. We used just over 800 gallons in the boat last summer. Pretty much all of that was 2.99 at the local station by the lake....

    They are definitely getting up there in weight for a half ton. I believe being able to tow with the tower down helps immensely on the highway, and having 3 axles with brakes makes a huge difference. ...

    I Used to have a tige z3 with the pcm 409. The go to prop for surfing on that boat was the 1235. I believe a few years ago that was the prop to have for surfing on quite a few different boats.

    It really does track a lot better on the road. I donít think you could safely tow this on a double axle with 18s. As the weight would overload the tires. I think you would have to get the base 15Ē...

    I’m just guessing that 500 lbs or so is trailer alone. They beefed up the the new trailers. Also this one has one extra axle as well. It doesn’t seem to tow any harder, I think the triple tows better...

    It looks like the vision manual is for 2020 and older as it has the old steering wheel pictured. With that being said the 2022 softwares device manager only shows Bluetooth. Which is strange because...

    No pics as that boat was traded in. I noticed it mostly on the front of the fenders and back on the step wings behind the trailer axles. It wasn’t awful but it didn’t want to chip up the new trailer.

    I hated to spend the money. A 450 is a pig at 6500 feet elevation. Summer time our density altitude can be 10000+ feet. Our dealer sold a makai last year with that engine solely for that reason.
