  1. There is no center tank or bag. There are bags above tanks in the lockers and a hidden nose bag. The only tank in the middle is the 65 gallon fuel tank.
  2. Unfortunately this is an industry wide issue with most brands. They aren’t like cars and they are very territorial. Each dealer works to take care of their own customers and “if” they have time they will do others. Don’t even get me started on the one time warranty transfer to only the second owner. The entire boating industry needs to fix this if they are going to charge over $100k on a day boat.
  3. To start with, I think with some seat and wave time it would be easy to dial in. Maybe a few well placed leadwake bags, some speed and tan adjustments and it would be fine after that. The B52 is a little more simple out of the box but plenty of people like the F22 wave. It’s no slouch. As for the racks… I know a guy who has a nice solution for the Arizona sun! 😎

  5. If you look close it does appear to have some form of breakaway tongue. That pin should release it. I don’t think the safety cables would go back that far if it wasn’t.
  6. The F22 can put a great wave. It’s just a little more finicky than the B52. Once you dial it in it would be great. The B52 is just easier out of the box. The reality is like buying TV’s in a big box store. The most expensive one looks just a little better on the shelf, but if you take home a mid range one and hook it up you will be blown away with how good it is by itself. The other reality is most of us can’t out surf any of the beautiful waves these new boats put up. It would be a huge upgrade over your existing boat and that’s the real comparison!
  7. Not much. Just power tower that was available towards the end of ‘22.
  8. The ‘23 MB’s shot up in price a bunch too. This is a really good deal on an F22.
  9. Typical November though. Some dealers don’t want to sit on boats through the winter.
  10. That’s a smoking deal on basically a brand new boat. 9.7 hours isn’t even broke in.
  11. I don’t know details, just seen some recent pics.
  12. They are coming soon. Definitely Alpha styling but with some pretty good freeboard. Kind of a cross between B52 and F24 style with hopefully B52 wave.
  13. It’s a custom order. You have to send your existing canvas to them to have a zipper added. The only complicated part about putting it up is reversing the back bow before it all tucks in the boot. It takes about an extra 5 minutes to stow but it’s well worth it for the extra shade. Compare the overall Bimini size compared to Jeff’s 2015 and John’s 2013 biminis next to mine. I think it was around $500.
  14. I would order with full stereo delete next time, since I removed it all anyways. the 400 is plenty of power at sea level and the 2849 prop that I switched to is a perfect match, keeping my rpm’s down at 3300 @11.3mph fully weighted down. I definitely would add electric over hydraulic brakes but my Boatmate tandem axle trailer is great overall. I would order the extra cleats up front and the quick connect fender mounts again. Both have definitely been worth the money. Still love the chill cool interior. It definitely helps with the heat and just feels way
  15. I’ve been boating for almost 30 years. The weather is a cycle. Wet then dry… Some years you get to play every weekend other summers, you barely get to touch the boat. It’s a tough sport in the bad years. It definitely is harder on the bad years when you have a payment. I’m personally surprised that with high gas prices, low water levels and rising interest rates, that there still is a demand. Any one of those can derail resale in a typical year. We all know the last few years haven’t been typical! The only person that can decide if it’s worth the investment is you.
