  1. Hey Birddog, I don't remember anyone wanting to change your mind. I know there are some MB owners who can't appreciate the look of the new Alphas. That's fine, you don't have to. You own yours and appreciate it, and we'll own ours and appreciate them. You're are certainly entitled to your opinion, but just because it's your opinion in no way raises your statement to the level of fact. Sounds to me like you've been attending the Vladimir Putin school of misinformation? When you say "nothing I've seen has even come close to changing my mind;" nothing in that statement indicates you've ac
  2. Whoa Birddog! Where is all this false propaganda coming from with regard to the new F24 surf wave being trash? From the picture on your icon, it does not look like you own one of the new F24 Alphas? If you did, and you had worked with any of those of us who do own the new 24 Alpha, we would have given you the set up that creates one of the biggest walls of water you will ever see. It is true the F24 takes a little bit of fine tuning to get the wave correct (read placing the right number of lead weight bags in the right places throughout the boat), but once the fine tuning is complete
  3. That's what the rumor mill is for sure. Enjoy the upcoming season!
  4. Haven't decided yet. I'm waiting to see what the boys in Atwater come up with in the next few months.
  5. This is a late model 2021 F24 Alpha. Still looks like it's sitting on the showroom floor. In fact it is sitting on the showroom floor. Take advantage of Boat Show season pricing, and be sure you have your boat before the upcoming boating season begins. If you haven't seen the new F24 Alpha's, and the storage they have, well, you're cheating yourself until you do. Fill the seats, fill the storage with everything you need for a day on the lake with so much room left to spare, and still throw amazing Wakesurf, and Wakeboard wakes! And if you just want to cruise, or better yet just let the fa
  6. The build sheet will show plug-n-play rear and bow. You'll get the bow, but the rear will not be included. You'll have to talk to your dealer about what you paid for, and what is included. Enjoy the ride, and be sure to send pics, or video of how it all looks when you get the wall of water moving across the lake.
  7. They found the plug-n-play ended up making the surf wave worse, so they quit outfitting the boat at the factory. That's only on the F24 Alpha.
  8. No sacs. The internal is all you're going to want. The 500 lbs of lead is good. I'll post the locations for the set up, but just got back into town, and have a few items to cover first. You'll want some big bumpers. This boat is much bigger than you realize when you get up against the docks. You'll want a good sized anchor, if you have cause to use one (and you will), along with an anchor buddy. Tie-up lines. Lot's of towels for wiping down at the end of the day. Again there is a great deal more acreage on this boat than you realize. And unless you're over 6' ta
  9. Merry Christmas Don, and the whole MB family. To you specifically Don, I hope you are able to survive the atmospheric river of moisture you've had running over your Bay Area for the past week? Don't end up under any freeway underpasses!! Stay safe everyone. 2022 should look a whole ton better by the time we get to boating season!!
  10. Guppy, Sounds like it might be better if you went about separating the two conflated calculations you are making. First, what is the tongue weight of the towable placing on your vehicle, and can you adjust that weight? If you'll look at the side profile of your boat you'll see all the carried weight in your boat is located forward of the "center of gravity," the axles. If you move all the lead you're carrying to an aft "arm" that effort should create the relief you're seeking for your tongue. If I remember right, the rear seat in the 23' Alpha is right about the axle "datum" locat
  11. If you're going to tow with the tower down, you MUST use the trailering support brackets. Easy to install, and remove when you get to the water, but if you don't have them installed while towing, I shudder to think of all the bad things that could happen.
  12. Seeing an F24 Alpha in person, and absolutely taking it out for a test ride, will be the best option for your research. You can read about it, and hear about it, but until you actually see the size, the storage, and experience the wakeboard wake, and the surf wave, you won't appreciate what that boat is about.
  13. I'm thinking rather than hearing from the natty crowd who "seems" to know everything about the 24's (see a couple of the pontifications above), you'd like to hear from an actual F24 Alpha owner. PM me, and I can give you the full skinny. But in short, we actual owners have spent the time to dial in the surf wave on the F24, and while it's not quite as easy to produce the same wave as is the 23', once you get it figured out it produces a mountain of water for a wave. You surf a little faster than the other models, but there's plenty of push, and if you're looking for a lip to play on th
  14. LOL!! That's too funny. I'm hoping you're being facetious? I'm not sure anyone would want to try and really yank, and bank through the buoys at 22' off, but either way, I don't think you could get your boat going fast enough, and you stay on top of the ski, to flatten out the rooster tail area of the wake. Good luck though! If you do give it a try, be sure to post some pics.
