  1. I was impressed by its size at the Utah boat show. The bow is massive and I couldn't even touch the top of the tower while standing in the middle of it. IMG_0144.MOV
  2. Man, I'm sorry you are frustrated. It would be hard to carve out a relationship with a particular dealer only to have to leave shortly after purchase. I guess where there is ambiguity is in the term "warranty work". I don't believe routine, or even first, service is part of MB's warranty. That's usually something that you can negotiate in with your (for you unfortunately) selling dealer. In other words, I don't think a dealer gets reimbursed for routine or scheduled service, which means you are asking the new dealer (who didn't receive a penny from you) to go through the exp
  3. Soooooo Who's going to man enough to jump into the water first??? C'mon you wussies!!!
  4. I mean...It's an MB forum so take it for what it's worth. That being said, I heavily crossed shopped Supreme in 2019 when I was deciding. The Zeus is a good boat but stay away from the regular S if you want to surf. It takes ballast and technique to get even decent wave. I liked the interior quality and the price and I do believe the GM motors are quieter. Just don't think you are getting a budget Centurion. You're not. People don't surf to save gas. Don't get me wrong, I'm on a budget too, but if (at most) 1-2 gph is making a difference, then you probably shouldn't be buying the
  5. God luck and may God have mercy on both of us
  6. I can't wait to see it in person... From what I've seen (which isn't much), it's the complete package!!!
  7. Who's placing an order for one??????? I can't wait to see one in person!
  8. I had some interior issues that were not acceptable on my 2021.... I'm still waiting to get them addressed but I believe they have been approved by the warranty department. I've had an overall great experience and also firmly believe you buy the dealer as much as the brand. TBS has treated me very fairly. I've had a few neighbors buy much more expensive brands that have been nightmares, so I feel pretty good overall. I always thought my "grail boat" would be a Supra in a few years, but I honestly think that if I were to buy another boat, I would stay MB. I'm excited to see t
  9. Great deal!!! I'd be all over it if I was in the market.
  10. You can never have enough free board for sure! I wonder if the extra weight of the 575 sinks your stern a bit more than those with the standard 400. I remember you mentioning you had some rollers come up from behind. Yeah my experience with MC has been less than stellar. I even had a guy over at the Moomba forums beg me to steer clear of MetalCraft, but I didn't know any better. I love an all white hull, timeless and classic (and yes, boring), but I'd probably do all white with minimal (if any) accent striping along with contrasting powder coating and tower. I'm sure the 25 footer
  11. I love my 21 B52 Alpha.... It was my first surf boat and the first boat (or vehicle for that matter) that I custom ordered. That being said, I do find myself saying "If I were to order another one" on occasion. Obviously I couldn't have put MY22/23 options on my 21 since they weren't yet available, but here is a list of things that, knowing what I know now, probably would have done differently. -440 upgrade. I know it's not much bang for your buck, but even a little torque would be nice at altitude. - No white interior. Never again. It's obviously cooler to the touch,
  12. I don't want to see it. I don't want to see it. I don't want to see it.
  13. I understand and I appreciate your opinion. I guess I just worry and am perhaps looking for some reasons to be talked off the ledge. I'm not super wealthy and pay for indoor storage as well, so I need to get a lot out of the boat to justify it. My family is just all over the place age wise and we get really busy with sports/work/school so long trips are few and far between. Sometimes, we honestly only have time for a quickie up to DC for an hour or two before needing to come back. The other thing is the DC closure pushes more boats to the remaining reservoirs resulting in longer launch lines.
  14. Man.... It is me. I LOVE being out on the water, but it's a pretty big investment (I have a loan on mine). With DC ramp closed and the drought going on everywhere, I am actually thinking of moving on. I have two concerns. 1. Inability to boat locally 2. Rapid decrease in boat value when everyone unloads them due to the first reason. Am I just spouting the white mans lies or is this a concern that others are having at the moment ? My kids would be so bummed, but that's a lot of coin to spend monthly for only one or two trips a summer. I need to use the boat regularly (loc
  15. If you are OK with analog gauges, I think the MB would more than satisfy your wave needs. I do think the Centurion gives you much better interior quality, but the bottom line price will be substantially more with the Centurion.
