    Default Does 2018 SL have auto launch?

    That is too much total weight to get on plane at wakeboarding speeds for a 440/1.5 even at sea level.

    I'm sure the boat will get on plane, but not before the 20 second mark and he will be dragging his boarder around the whole time. Once he tries to drop back down to 19-21MPH for his boarder it will fall back into the water.

    Not on FB so I have no idea who this is and what all he is dealing with, but has anyone asked where his 750# of lead is sitting? Does he have everything in the rear and all the people sitting reverse watching. Also, even if he has launch on the SL doesn't it retract at 15mph? Really just looks like too much weight and how big of a wake do you need? Is he trying to jump other boats?

    Sounds like he is expecting to run what Trevor runs in the PWT boat.

    Big difference with a 550 vs a 440.

    Plus the PWT boat put the added lead in the bow walkway with two people sitting in the bow.

    Not sure where his peeps are sitting, but needs a lot of bow weight to have a chance planing with 10800# at 22-23mph

    All said, if you havenít seen a Supra wake with 100 bow, 50-60 rear with mid size crew, itís MASSIVE, the PWT wake is scary.

    This story goes round and round on social media. Many peeps have chimed in. Sounded like he did a few days of many weight scenarios.

    Now is getting the motor and software looked at by the dealer. When he transfers the warranty, they will do a compression check.

    Per the software/tabs, Iím sure the dealer will look that over and make sure everything is up to date and working as should.

    If the motor is shot....I'll trade him even up for a working 2015 Mojo!

    Not that big of a deal to rebuild....

    Yes, it is a big job. The case is the same, but floor, gas tank, shaft, pretty much everything has to be removed in that area to swap it. I am the guy Larry is talking about, just had it done under warranty. The 1.5 broke a gear, got the new 1.7.

    Holdmybeer, auto launch doesn't retract at 15mph, could be before or after depending on desired speed, it isn't a set thing.

    The guy took out all the lead, 3 in the bow, 4 in the cabin and full ballast with the 15x12.5 and it wouldn't get up, something is def wrong with the boat, my guess is the surf tabs aren't engaging as he also said the surf wave on both sides was awful, kinda tells me they are inop.
