    Default New Mojo Build, help picking colors, also engine size

    Hello all, sold my 2006 XLV this fall and am building a new Mojo.
    The website builder and colors seems to be wierd and hard to pick from.
    we are torn between making the main side panel Ultra blue metal flake or Brittany blue flake.
    On the website the Ultrablue looks like what we want but we are concerned its pretty dark in reality and the Brittany is more our liking.

    Anyone out there have pictures they would like to share or suggestions regarding this...
    Thanks so much.

    Oh, we are thinking of upgrading to the 450 cause our older boat struggled with the upgraded ballasts and weight. is this really an issue in a new boat.

    In a mojo, 400/1.76 is going to handle a lot unless you are at higher elevation.

    I have pulled 11,000+ in a SA with a 400/1.76 at 1000 feet elevation at 11mph no problem.

    I've been on the new Mojo full of adults, full ballast, and 500#s of lead. No issues with that 400 and new trans package.

    Ultra Blue really pops in the water in the sun.

    The pitch you surf at 8/9/10/11 degrees and the propeller you use, makes a huge difference on whether your boat can pull the weight. As well, if you have novice surfers, that are above 200 lbs, or if you enjoy surfing way back on the wave, you will need to add weight (lead/water) and re-prop from the stock offering. I would spend the money on that rather than upgrading the engine.

    Of the two blues hands down Ultra Blue looks better in my opinion. It has a little bit of flop to it and the hue of blue/aqua changes depending on lighting conditions. In bright daylight shining against the flake the color pops a bright aqua-like color and on low light or overcast the hue is a bit like a bright royal color. Brittany Blue is not as dynamic in terms of color changes in my opinion.

    Here are some examples in different lighting conditions…

    Not that my opinion matters, but I prefer Ultra over Brittany.
