  1. Changing my sea strainer to that one and adding a seacock is on my to do list. It’s insane to me that MB doesn’t put them on from the factory. The one thing I read about these a while back is to make sure that they are full inside diameter so they don’t restrict. I had to close the seacock on my father in laws Axis last week, that boat wanted to go to the bottom of the lake.
  2. This was definitely the case with the s238 and the s211(?). I believe the new S220 and S240 are getting good reviews for surfing. I want to demo surf the S240 really bad.
  3. You bought a boat based on deer creek??? I avoid that place at all costs. Also the ramp has only been closed for the last 2 weeks. The local boating season is winding down, not sure why you're worried about it. Sorry I just have a really bad opinion of deer creek. I would rather pull 6 hours to Powell than the 15 minutes it takes me to get to deer creek.
  4. @SurfNewb the stock one is probably 4-5 inches. I'll measure it when I get home but this one will give you what your looking for.
  5. I put this in my 2016 F22. I got it for $42. I like it. https://www.amazon.com/attwood-278OGY090-1-Pedestal-Base-9-Gray/dp/B07CR5QPFK/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=attwood+278OGY090-1+278+Series+Pro+Pedestal+Base+(-+9"%2C+Gray)&qid=1662600932&sr=8-1
  6. Maybe post your boating elevations and what motor you have and you'll get more response. Also I think wakemakers has a table of recommendations.
  7. The response I got from Boatmate: "You can change over to EOH from surge brakes, but there will need to be significant modifications required. You will need to change out all brake lines to handle the increased working pressure. There will also have to be wiring modifications and a new coupler (something similar to the pic below) as well. I'll be honest with you, we've had people convert to EOH and we've been told that the cost of changing over (usually around $2000) is not worth the results."
  8. I just had my bearings repacked with new seals by SLC Trailer. He is a mobile business comes to you. He recommended I get them done every year for the reasons stated above. I'd rather pay the money than be stuck on the side of the road. Got my trailer bunks replaced by a mobile guy at deer creek tonight as well. I sent a message to boatmate today to ask about the brake line pressure and if they know of a solid actuator replacement.
  9. $1300 installed doesn't sound that bad when the price of this kit is $1018. https://www.etrailer.com/Brake-Actuator/Hydrastar/HS381-9067.html What did your friend think of the EOH setup?
  10. Has anyone done the electric over Hydraulic swap on their boat trailer. I am considering it. I don't like surge brakes and most posts I've read on the topic say that it is 100% better.
  11. As far as I know, none of the MB's have a center drain plug. That's probably access to something on the fuel tank.
  12. The longer the boat the more consistent your wave will be. Get the biggest boat you can tow and store.
  13. My 2016 has a grease zerk on the top of the rudder under the engine. I'm sure yours is the same. So get a grease gun with marine grease.
  14. Awesome compilation of data! When my F22 comes out of storage in May I'm going to run it across the scale. I'm going to grab one of those Weigh Safe hitches that measure your tongue weight during this off season too. I'm also on the fence about swapping out my 16 Tundra for a HD truck. Current truck prices are crazy though and I'm not sure I want to do it.
  15. @rajohnson26 are the air horns for the lake lice? Sometimes I wish paintballs weren't litter...
