  1. We are looking at selling our 2008 Supra and ordering a B52 23 alpha. We predominantly surf and our lake is at an elevation of 750’. 
     

    We want the clamping racks, dual batteries, 4 tower speakers, 8.8s in the interior, runway lights on the trailer, and plug-n-play to name a few. 
     

    Would the upgraded motor really be worth it? On the trailer we were just doing the tandem with 15” wheels since 90+% of the time we will tow no more than 10-15 miles. 
     

    Any things you guys can think of would be appreciated. 

  2. So I filled "built" a boat on the website and sent the sheet to my dealer.  With all of the options we wanted including the 440, we came in at 108 for the alpha.  Never been on a MB but the dealer is going to bring one to me to demo for the single week I'm home before heading out for another 6 weeks.  If it's everything I imagine it'll be I will be putting down a deposit on one as soon as I get my Supra sold.  I had selected the "C" audio package but that seems like it may be overkill and I've been seeing that the guys that have ordered that have not been getting the upgraded sub and amp so I might be on the fence with that one.  Also, i may just go ahead and step up to the 575.  Our elevation is ~750 but we plan on taking it for family trips to Tennessee and maybe some out west as well.  The motor and tri axle trailer are the big ones we would be contemplating.  We don't tow very far now and want to find a slip so we don't tow at all locally but I'd be towing it with a1/2 ton truck whenever we did tow it anywhere and the 3rd axle should make it a lot nicer going down the road.  For those of you that did do the 575, what prop did you end up running?

     

    I'm kinda hoping we can opt for the JL equipment and really hoping we can get clamping board racks as an option.

     

    Here's a link for the Supra if you happen to know anybody looking for great used boat.  Throws a killer wave but momma said she wants something new.

     

  3. Well if I order the MB I'm trying to swing a sweetheart deal with my local dealer whom is just now building a true dealership.  He had a wakeboard and surf school and knows the founder of MB so they got on as a dealer and used the boats for the school as "demos" and then would sell and replace.  Since he's just now building an actual dealership I am trying to see if I can get some options at cost and bling it out a little more but use it as a display for boat shows.  Some of our requirements are a heater for the wife and extended seasons, gatorstep, 440 motor, and the surf system.  My wife is a little hesitant because she had never heard of MB and she said they're small.  Really the only thing that I would have to have serviced by MB is any issues we had pertaining to the hull and it's warranty and related items.  Any indmar service center could perform the service or warranty work on the drivetrain.
