  1. I’d err in the side of strength. Your hinges will undergo repeated sustained force, even the beefy hinges on our GSA tabs get bent pretty easily. (Pic from my F22 around 50 hrs). Why not get the stronger ones and have them powder coated? Pretty inexpensive.
  2. For anyone else following in the future. I just disconnected my batteries and the computer reset seems to have resolved this issue.
  3. Went out yesterday, ballast gates, trim tab and surf tabs all had no power. Everything else seemed to be fine. Hoping it’s a fuse, where do I troubleshoot first? 2016 F22 Gent on FB had me check the Power distribution Module, I attached a pic of it here, seems to be fine. Everything else on the boat seems to have power, I guess I could check on that. Thanks!
  4. Ahh, 440, still, with my 400, adding cup might be worth looking at in the off-season. Thanks!
  5. I tend to view the forum mainly in the Tapatalk app. Looks like something with the new server change has broken that? Or perhaps Tapatalk doesn't support the new software? Anyone else experienced this?
  6. one nice thing about the valterras, is if you have to manually open or close...it's just a handle pull/push instead of an allen wrench-fest in those small confines.
  7. What elevation were you running at? And which engine? You were able to surf at full weight AND be at 3600 RPM? That might be worth it in gas savings alone. What was your top speed after you added the cup (you ended up with .105 cup?)?
  8. I have the 1.5 Gear ratio in my 2016 F22, ford raptor 6.2L 400. I boat at 5,100 95% of the time. I'm still able to surf at 4-4100 RPM with about 5,000 lbs weight added, plus a family or two. The difference is probably your Prop, I'm running an ACME 2937, which, btw, was made specifically for a high-elevation surfpig F22.
  9. I have on my '16 F22, on a few occasions, been able to defeat the scar on my regular side by having the edge of the swim platform sufficiently submerged. My goofy side is always very clean. FWIW
  10. I might sell you mine, 2016 Tomcat. Looking to do something different. I don't even know what a fair price is. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Snap, if I wasn't building a house I'd be all over this! Will be a great boat for someone Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Yeah top speed is low 30s Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  13. I run at 5200 ft+ almost exclusively. 2016 F22 1.5 trans, GSA. Raptor 400 Using the ACME 2937, a prop ACME actually made for the F22 at elevation. I'm able to fill stock ballast, plus 600 in each locker and 600 up front between sacks and lead and I can surf at 4000 RPM. 11.5 MPH regular and 12 MPH goofy. I have to use less ballast if I have a heavy crew, but that's my usual weight setup with about 3/4 tank of gas or less. Full tank of gas I've not had great luck with good waves, fwiw. On a side note, some twit mixed up the Surf Cookbook. The first several columns,
  14. If be interested to see this capping at 4000RPMs. Which is where most of us live Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  15. Thanks guys, hopefully he ends up with a good boat. I've only ever ridden my wave, will be fun to get a little variety. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  16. We're at elevation, so I told him not to skimp on motor. I run the 400, and it does mostly fine, but it would be nice to have some more horses. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  17. My bro in law is dead set on buying a Malibu. Which should he get and what should he look out for? I don't really pay munch attention to them. He's not as much of a researcher, figured I'd at least help him with some groundwork research, and this lot is the best in the biz. He's looking for new or more likely barely used 23-25' Thanks!

  18. I looked into buying one last summer, reviews were pretty mixed. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  19. I might take it off your hands. Is it good for a big dude? I Jeff something for heavier beginners. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  20. That colorway is sick Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  21. I have this and love it. I added 2-3" of hdpe spacers in-between this and my the seat mount as well, for additional height. I did have to get longer bolts/screws. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  22. Tempting, would love a general board for everyone and one my kids could grow into. My 11 yr old wants to hit a 360. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  23. It's part of a new build. I couldn't tell you the cost for it exactly. It shares the whole right wall and part of the roof with my 3-car garage. 12x12 garage door, ceiling is extra high because the top of the pitch needed to match the garage+bonus room to the right. 32'4" deep (I wanted at least 35... But beggars can't be choosers X^D) and 17'6" wide. I'm guessing 14.5ish tall. Trying to figure out how to put some sweet storage on the uppers. I'll have a heater and a big ceiling fan in the middle. Maybe mount some pullies above the back for hoisting tubes and whatnot for drying
