I just got a new XLV. It has two speedometers. I asked the dealer why and they didn't seem to know. Did they forget a gauge or something? Does anyone else know?

Thanks,

Tournament style boats have always had 2 speedos as far as I know (I'm sure there could be exceptions). My guess is that it is mainly an option that comes from tournament slalom skiing where they are used to verify the accuracy of each other for slalom runs. I don't really see the need for it anymore especially on wakeboard boats and with the advent of perfectpass. Also the fact that both speedos now run from the the same paddlewheel pickup instead of two different pickups like older ones do. I suppose it's just a trademark of this type of boat now.
