    I agree with you as having spent a lot of time on a mondo in wi it's a nice boat and interior is MUCH better than the helix for me but the vast majority of these boats are purchased for surfing and having a wider hull will be an easier sell to some that are shopping specs only. restricted lake won't care of the length between the 2 as there's only an inch difference and both are over 20 and under 21. if you are a true slalom skier as your primary neither of these will be on the radar and if you're a slalom secondary and appeasing the family that surfs/boards, there won't be enough of a slalom difference to sway one way or the other imo.

    interesting that the moomba boat builder lists 2 engine options for the helix and mondo only has the 400 listed now. wonder if that was to drive people toward the helix as a first step in mondo getting axed.

    Understand not being able to talk about it. I’m excited!

    Sandm - good points about the boats. I wonder if moomba would ever release another ski boat. They could do a nice direct drive on the outback hull. Maybe they could get some of the skiers that don’t want to spend 100k on a Nautique ski boat.

    I would doubt theres a real market for a direct drive ski boat anymore. slalom is still pretty big in the midwest but those that relish the sport seemed to have tucked away an older ski hull as the slalom boat and picked up a wake boat for the family.
    pick up an old boomerang, santera or ski nautique for 5-8k for a morning set and have a surf boat for the family play time all afternoon.

    a good closed bow slalom boat will only hold 2 and a skier. not much of a family boat. my buddies boomerang is tight with 3 and a skier in it to the point we usually dumped others off at the dock and wait their turn.

    There has to be a market because a new Ski Nautique is $120k+

    For a 5-6 person max boat. I couldn’t imagine spending that on a ski boat. But, I don’t slalom or run the course either.
    I sure hope prospersigman is right about the release on the 18th. Would love to see a new boat from Moomba. But, wouldn’t they be releasing teasers and advertising it?

    So going away from models and talking about features. I wonder when SC will be able to get a fully integrated autowake system that not only controls ballast but also flow and wakeplate. I have to image this is the direction they want to go. I could even see 2020 as being the year.

    Correct me if I am wrong......but autowake already does that.
