    Default Does 2018 SL have auto launch?

    Fb thread about a guy that can't plane so I was going to screenshot the manual showing how to make sure auto launch is on, but I can't find any reference to it in the 2018 vision manual. Does it not have it?

    To clarify I'm talking about deploying all 3 tabs to get on plane.

    You have to be in Wakeboard advanced mode to deploy all 3 tabs.

    But the Supra Launch system uses the center plate at 100% to assist all the time.

    In the vision screen, one of the screens allows you to adjust the crossover speed for the launch assist.

    Not correct, for Supra boats, only have to have cruise on and the box checked in the menu settings. It is under ballast and smart plate settings, I set my crossover point to 95. I talked to the guy, he is totally frustrated. Needs to let the dealer hook it up and see what is going on.

    Yeah he's a bit of a drama queen it seems and doesn't want to take any real advice just wants someone to give him a quick fix.
    He seems to think any boat should plane out with full ballast and a full crew, which we all know isn't the case its a little more nuanced than that lol.

    Learned something today, I always flip it to my Wakeboard advance setting in the rider profiles when I want to go from full ballast surfing to scooting to party cove, but with the 550 I can get on plane no problem anyways.

    He got so pissy on the one thread, he started to call out the original buyer on a few other items too - heated seat and water temp gauge not working. The dude was frustrated.

    Then he started another thread with the same question looking for a different answer.

    Not sure about what the seating has to do with his wakeboard planing speed. I assumed the total weight number was the NMMA Certification for safety reasons.
    17 people and 3500#s of ballast
    or
    X people and 4000#s of ballast
    or
    Y people and 4500#s of ballast
    or
    How you want to slice it.

    2018 SL 450 (previous 440) with the 1.5 trans and a 15x12.5 wheel.

    His setup was 5-6 people, full ballast, 1/2 tank of gas, 750#s of lead and not getting on plane.

    Sounded like he did not test ride the boat before buying used and applying Trevor Hansen’s recommendation to him.

    A Wakeboard Guy trying to get the most out of his boat and was not settling for a “mediocre wake” (his words) for his boosts. I can respect that.
