    Yeah trying to make the most of it. Scored a killer 4 day deal at Holiday Valley with room, lift tickets, and kids lessons for like $540 with tax. Nuts. So that, and maybe a Tahoe trip (I have a couple customers out there) will hopefully keep us going through the winter! Kids are psyched to get out and rip.

If I can mimic that wave with the SL I will never need a different boat! Chose the SL because with our crew the cabin space and head room coming into the boat (tall people) is preferred and I got a decent deal on the 450 upgrade. Drove an 18 SL400 back to back with the 2020 SL400 was sold on the new gear reduction. The auto level in cruise mode and back to dock is pretty cool as well.
    The 2020SA is the best boat out there right now as far as Iím concerned. Wave is fantastic as you saw, and is super tunable.

    The 18 was set up with a surf prop and didn't have any lead. We had about #600 pounds of lead and standard prop for SC. Great comparison. Dealer told me that I hold the record for most demo runs......

    Since it's the off season (for most of us) i don't feel too bad about posting non-boat stuff. If it breaks the rules someone remove it. Or you know... ignore it.

    I guess this kind of applies to the "how do you afford it" thread as well... This summer we shipped a large multi-robot assembly line for an electronic component used in a Hybrid Vehicle's drivetrain; the inverter that makes multiphase (AC) power from the DC stored in batteries and vice-versa. Kinemetrix (my company) has been in the custom automation business for 25 years - I've been here 10 and worked my way from entry level Mechanical Engineer to Engineering Manager! This system has been my baby for the last 18 months and our final customer run is next week. Along side of me being out at the customer finishing it up, our president contracted a marketing firm to throw together some media:

I'll post my build pic once confirmed on the yes or no on the change.
    Hopefully they can get it changed how you want. Usually there is a hard date for no more changes just prior to production state of the build. Your dealer should be able to get that date from Skiers Choice and build sheet with amendments. Best of luck and congrats again!

    The gel coat was sprayed yesterday so they are already starting the lamination of the hull. So I didn't get it changed but the good news is that it is still a very classy looking boat. Wife's comment was you don't admire the outside color of the boat while surfing the wave or riding in the boat. Should be in Portland around the first of the year.
    Thanks - D

    That's crazy pricing for airfare, great find and hope you get to enjoy an extended season.

    I drove 520 miles one way to SC on Tuesday to winterize the XLV. There was a cold snap and couldn't find anyone to do it. I can't wait to meet up with it in June, permanently! I miss being on this board! Not enough wake time lately.
