  2. I've always been jealous of the surf pockets and the trash can that the new MB's have. So, I ordered the passage way billet trash can from Mastercraft. It worked perfectly! Thanks to Mom for sewing the surf pockets!

    Found a private party 2020 B52 23' with 40hrs on it in Texas and closed the deal today!! Boat ships out next Wednesday and should be in our drive way by next Friday/Saturday. We are beyond excited for it to arrive and get on the water. I have a million questions and would love some advice as this is my first Vdrive boat. 1. What maintenance intervals should i plan for this summer or now (oil change was done 20hrs ago)? 2. What cleaning/maintenance products should i own or not waste my time with? Plan to do oil and impellers myself.. 3. Registering tips to get

  7. With 8 in the boat no need for lead. I ran 450 lbs in the front center nose section. If I had 6 adults or less approx weight. I would fill everything with the lead up there. If I had more than that, I would just run less front bag weight. I always kept the lead up there. You can always have Lead wake do customs bags . These were mine

  8. There is some truth to this, especially with full range speakers. Not enough wattage for the job, and the user tends to crank the volume wide open, trying to get the desired output of the driver. The higher the volume level (not dB's, but dial level) the more the signal quality drops off. The 4 main contributors to output, is driver surface area, enclosure type, excursion and wattage. IMO, this order is also the most efficient to the least efficient. Larger a woofer and a ported or passive radiator enclosure v's sealed all require ZERO more wattage to gain more output. Excursion can be e

  11. All I can say is that I have a 16 F22 and absolutely love the boat. We are a family of 6 and there is plenty of room on the boat for all of us and for the kids to bring friends. F22 is a surf monster, IMO, once you get your setup dialed. I do think that you'll ultimately want to have a center trim plate (i.e cave plate) to adjust the boat's ride attitude depending upon loading and fine tune the wave. Ours has the Raptor and the engine has been stout and solid. It's a bit of a louder engine than the GM engines, though, in my experience.

  13. I use Ski Safe. You pick the coverage amount. I’ve never had to file a claim but most people I’ve heard of had good experiences with their coverage. The only bad I’ve heard is after a large claim they will cancel you. They understand our boats vs big insurance companies that think 360hp means 80mph.

  15. lucky me I suppose anything to add value on a depreciating item is a good thing. chill tech is so much nicer then the last shit I had on my 2017. It don't think the chill factor works as much as it just feels amazing and is super plush

    We had good luck with this style. Ours was neoprene as suggested above. All three of our boys used it and we've since passed it on to a neighbor.

    JL speaker upgrades

    I have the 4 tower upgrade but had a local shop add another 600/1 JL amp to power two more 10s. Don't have the specifics on the factory installed amps with me but here are some pictures.

  21. Hey if you need some help let me know. I just sold my 2014 F22 last year and I did all kinds of mods. I love to drill wholes in boats. I live in Ogden, based on the pictures you are in North Ogden. I should have my New "B52 Alpha 575 beast" in a couple months, I boat at pineview or the Gorge, a few times before the bugs infest willard.

  23. We used Sunbrella fabric that I had left over from the fishing boat. I cut the whole with a jig saw and a super fine blade (went through three of them). I did do the JL head unit and modified the dash. This summer I broke my box that was over the engine and new one made out of aluminum. It's really nice and sturdy now.

    I have NEVER seen any patrols after dark on our lake...in fact, I have only been stopped once in my life and the only reason I think they stopped us is because I had 10 bikini wearing passengers and they wanted to "take a look" haha

  27. Lots more. IIRC you can go right on the boat configurator on when you add chill tech , you can see the MSRP of the boat climb commensurately. I know no one actually pays that much, but it still gives you any idea. It’s like the shiny gel coat, every piece you add, increases the price.

    Thanks for the feedback. I found feedback from others saying the same thing.... factory ballast is not enough and it needs a lot more weight. Boats are moving fast here right now so this one was actually sold by the time they inquired about it. I'm still looking for an MB for them. @Birddog7.62 said he would sell his but he's ghosting me right now.

  29. Hey guys super stoked to be a part of the MB Family, I almost bought an MB back in 2015 but went with a Tige and have since repented!! HA! My question is how many people are running lead? And if so where? I have 500 pounds from my old boat, dealer said it's not really necessary but I want to see what this boat can do!

  30. In terms of power handling class, the Wet Sounds Revo-12XXX would be the comparable Wet Sounds woofer, not the Revo-12HP In terms of built for the marine environment, all the wet sounds woofers are built from the ground up as a true marine woofer. Synthetic cone, rubber surround, sealed magnet, synthetic spider, composite basket, etc. Now, not all "car" woofers are bad to use in boats though. However, I suggest to steer clear of those that use a paper based cone. Sometimes words like cellulose, hybrid or laminated are used. These indicate a paper based cone.

  32. I just talked to The Boats Shack and the upgraded 12 is the M7-12. Having the stereo tuned is a really good idea. Value all comes down to personal preference. I love base. I have a 3k sub in my home theater with dual 15's. The JL top of the line home theater runs 15K not sure I can justify the cost.

  33. Our new boat came with sound deading applied to rear seat back rest, also the transmission floor cover / under side. I think it is very reasonable, and works very well...

  34. Could wait, but not sure prices on these things will go down anytime soon. Seems each year they're getting more and more expensive. If it fits your needs and price range, go for it. If you pass on it, boats are selling quick (here in Utah anyways), so might not get another opportunity in that price range.

  35. I am not sure exactly when MB changed engines. I think it was between 14 and 15. Someone here will correct me. I asked an indmar guy the specs on the 5.7 a while back he said this "The HP is approx. 350 and the torque is approx. 380 foot pounds betwewen 3000 and 4000 RPM" The Raptor 400 is 350HP and 400tq. I like chevy engines, they are cheaper. The indmar raptor is insanely expensive I hope I never have to pay for a new engine for my boat.

  37. You want to tow a F22 with an Explorer? I figure my F22 loaded is about 7500lbs. Not sure what an explorer is rated for... I tow mine with a Tundra and the boat feels heavy. I wouldn't consider towing it with less than a 1/2 ton truck. I have to put my truck in 4WD to crawl up my local slick ramp. I hope this doesn't hijack your thread but it's something you may want to think about. 15's have towers that potentially crack. Fixed when they moved to non round top tubes. 15's also had the starter motor in a dumb spot, you have to lift the motor to change the starter.

  39. Appreciate the replies guys. Didn’t think of the computer dump. It’s in Oregon so I’ll have to check for a deal there. Have some more research to do which is why I started here. Figured if I could pull it away for closer to 60 I wouldn’t be on a bad range.

  41. Picked it up last Sat (skipped a snowmobile ride for it, LOL) from a guy in Farr West who upgraded to a new B52. Yes, I'm excited about it having a good wave, extra ballast and a great stereo! Pineview in Ogden and Willard Bay is where we mostly go. It's 25 min, and 15 min from my house!

  42. I run 300 pounds of lead in the nose of the bow and then 200 pounds next to the batteries to offset the weight of the driver. I love chasing the perfect wave and this is the set up that I feel has given me the best wave!

    It is illegal here in California too. Just curious though, how many of your local lakes have patrols out after dark. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one around here.

  44. You do not want to put a check valve in the vent line of a hard tank. Hard tanks need to vent freely all the time.

  45. I have met life. I wanna say I am about 60 bucks a month. I made a claim on my last boat for a broken windshield. It was easy and my deduct was only 250. It was a comprehensive claim, so it didn't raise my premium. My rep told me anything is usually covered. If I left my drain plug undone and it sank to the bottom. It was covered. Just make sure you insure to the correct value of the boat.

  47. The Golden Ticket is a Utah legend!!!!! Enjoy it and Congrats on a one of kind boat, you'll be the talk of the the ramp. Like you, I don't have a FB account, but yeah... I hear it's much more active than this interweb forum. I still have learned a tremendous amount from the folks here though in anticipation of my first surf boat (I've had stern drives prior).
