  1. Wish the season wasn't over now but I'll get her in the water to run her around. Thanks to the Northwest Boat Sports folks!

    HRD Alpha 23

    Well it’s MB number five but our first new one in 17 years. The build came out exactly like I wanted it. Added XR1 Overhead Surf Racks and HRD Locker Nets along with a few cosmetic upgrades. Got a some plans for the off season but for now I’m loving it!

  3. Just an FYI for anyone following along that does not know. The last 2 digits of the HIN is the year model. This is not an MB thing, but its standardized across the marine industry. Just like street vehicle's VIN has the the year model in it, among other info, so do boat boats. So matter what brand boat you are looking to buy, Check the HIN to verify the year matches the add and paperwork.

    2022 v-drive oil?

    Yes, the transmission is very straightforward, both indmar and velvet drive manual specify dexron 3 or higher and inmars part number and product is good here.... I have just spoke with tod the engineer at velvet drive and he has assured me since 2017 they have not used, built, designed, or recommended anything other than the mobil shc 630 for any v-drive. He said whoever I'm contacting at indmar is not an engineer or knows. I spoke with a guy that is an indmar rep for moomba/supra 6hrs. Away from the factory, and he probably doesn't know.... the unfortunate part is indmars literature is all in

  5. Just seeing in person for the first time. Hoping they have a 23 too, and for shits and giggles I’m gonna walk the g23/g25. here’s the current lean - I like the gold on the transom…

  6. According to the internet world, vertical gates (GSA) require more ballast but are more fuel efficient. If I had a 2014 I would slap it. And yes the prop does effect your wave. I have 2 similarly pitched props but the wave is much better with the prop that my RPMs are higher. The more ballast the better. In my 2016 F22 I have the 2800 sub floor, I believe they are 600's in each rear locker and I installed a 425lb bag under the seat in the bow. I want a 800ish bag to sit on the center of my floor for when I have a small crew. I prefer to list the boat and not even fill the starboard side b

    Funny you asked. I color coated mine on my Classic and now it’s a factory option. Maybe I’m just the R&D mule!

    There are still 3 in the back end of the plate. I think it was 2018 when they simplified the GSA plates.

  10. Ah, okay makes sense. Yes, the boat market has gone up dramatically over the last two decades with the growth of wake water sports. And the last 1.5 years has gone even crazier with all the money printing the treasury is doing. The positive side of that is that your boat isn't going to depreciate like a car so it's not bad for a depreciating asset. I'm seeing quite a few more boats on the market now and you are buying at the start of the off season so I would definitely negotiate from the asking price. Especially if your max budget is $50k. You need to factor in that you're going to need

  11. Thats weird that they changed that. They are a bugger but when pulled slow and straight they usually slight right out

  12. 24 is gorgeous and big. Also gotta see a 23 alpha with quite a bit of gold on it. Damn sexy. seeing if the numbers can work out, and if they do I’m hoping to order pretty quick.

    Ya, I traded her, they did pretty well by me with the trade. I pick up the new boat on Oct 15th. They are asking a crazy price for it. The owner told me that they have never seen a boat as custom as mine/ ours (Don!). Lol. It was hard to drive away.

  14. I like all that Ryan 😉. Checking some rigs out Friday. Thanks for the consult Provo. If I go, leaning all metallic black low, then metallic gold on the upper / rear / transom. Excited to walk a 24 and get a feel for the dimensions.

  15. I'll vote for the F24 because I hear it throws a huge wakeboard wake. I'll teach you and your boys to ride and next thing you know you'll be raising little Shaun Murray's! 😁

  16. as a 2014, this boat should have: 1800# Subfloor ballast, batteries in the floor under the windshield, 3- 5" round gauges multi, tach, zero off) and a GM based motor. Lastly, the last two digits of the HIN should say "14" from 2014-2015 there were major changes to the boat, not necessarily the hull though. Ballast grew to 2800#, Raptor Motor, New "On-off" switches on gate valves, surf systems, and new square LCD in dash

    Before you start messing with pins and such, simply start dumping starboard side ballast until your wave cleans up. Shouldn't take too much. Or have your peeps sit on the port side. Your goofy wave will always be different due to the rotation direction if the prop.
