Thought all of you that are knee deep in the white stuff might like to see some shots that came my way from the factory.

A few more of our Supra brethren. Somebody was asking if SC was going to make the 242 in anything other than the red/black combo, so here are a few, starting with the World's Edition.
Note: try not to slobber on your keyboard!
1st 2 pics are from the Atlanta Boat Show

thanks for the shots..
it was me looking for other colors. the blue looks great. the orange needs more "graphics". looks like a great big long school bus :)
I like the green/black moomba, but I do see the issues with wanting the tower further forward. looks like they kept it back to fold behind the windshield, but it does look like it would be in the way..

Wolfeman, which one's yours???

I was in & out of the boat for 4 days and honestly I didn't think it was a major issue. People either used it to guide themselves from the platform into the rear bench seat or they stepped onto the sundeck pad, then into the boat. I don't recall anyone saying that it was in the way. Also, for those that have to raise & lower the tower all the time to put their boat into the garage, I think they would prefer the V2 tower for ease of raising & lowering (even w/ speakers) and deal with the egress hassle.

Oh, I'm still just a dreamin' . . .
But, my choice would be the blue 242 less the tribal graphics on the rear. That boat was simply badarse! Every option, upgraded stereo w/ speaker LED's, but a pretty hefty price.

I love the new tower but I'm just not feelin the new graphics.

I really like the look of that red and black LSV! that boat would look great with a red and blackk TTU flag flying from the tower!

do all new Moomba's and Supra's come with those chrome letters now?
Nope, they are an option. You can still get the traditional block Moomba decal and the Moomba Oval. They look fantastic in person and got a ton of compliments at the show.

I love the chrome look letters. Not the graphics though. If I was that guy with the Boomerang I'd look at just putting the chrome letters on instead of making a new decal. Maybe even just the small ones from the transom right at the back.

Thanks for sharing those photo's. Love those LSV's, if only someone wanted to over pay me for mine I'd be buying a new one, minus that tower, like the Z5 way to much

I like the chrome on some color schemes and options, but not on every boat.
it's gotta be a hard job at skiers to design the logo's/vinyl knowing that you are going to please some and not others, and ultimately, the overall outside appearance can make/break a sale..

Plus you have to change 'em every year and fairly dramatically every couple years. No wonder they seem a little agressive every couple of years and then will tone down a lot before going agressive again.

at least skiers is putting some thought into their designs. seems that for the last couple of years centurion has put the same goofy stripe on the enzos. doesn't seem like there has been an original design on that boat in years.
