Welcome good looking boat man. I installed a stereo on a Blue and White one that was other wise identical. You got a lot of options already with that boat and plenty of bags to go surfing and what ever else you want. Looks to be a good price with all the extras too.

Dont be a stranger.

i think you got a great deal. i paid $19500 for my 05 mobius ls and it didn't have tower speakers or racks and no bimini. i could have just been ripped off b/c it was my first boat too. But it looks good. love the red.

Yep, I have that boat in red and white. Love it. I call it the last of the wakeboard sports cars. Now a days they are all SUVs.

Enjoy.

Not sure if it lights up yet or not. I'll let you know when I find out. Definitely psyched for warmer weather though! Thanks for all the positive feedback!

I just checked. I owe $19,000 on the 05, only 4 years to go. When I bought it I thought 10 year financing was forever. Now the end is in view. I'm not sure I will ever "need" another boat, but we'll see. I still really like it.

Is there a way to lock the brakes when I park the trailer? I'm wanting to park the boat on the drive but its on a bit of a grade, nothing too major, but i'd like to lock the brakes as well as use a chock block for the tires. Anyone know if this is possible? I see a lot of brake lockout question, but nothing looking for a parking brake type situation.

Nope no way to lock the brakes unless you can keep the tongue pressed in.

Choke both wheels on each side and she wont move on you. I have parked mine a few times on my drive way with the truck unhooked and she stayed just fine and i got a pretty steep driveway.

Does anyone have any problems with their tower speaker cases cracking? It seems like it's an aluminum case, is there any way to fix or replace the case?

Good deal. I've been looking for similar deal for ~2 mo's without any luck. :cry: Did you purchase from a dealer or private party?

if the speaker cases are aluminum they can be welded. After welding you can smooth out the welds and repolish them to look like new. Any welder should be able to handle that project

Does anyone know what the part # would be for a Gravity I strainer screen would be?

I've already started looking at upgrades as well. First off I'm putting in a raw water strainer, which I decided on after searching the threads for an answer to my previous thread (still no luck on a replacement strainer for the ballast though). I have also bought 6 new 6 1/2 speakers. I went with the Infinity Reference 612M speakers. The reviews looked good on them. Now the weather just has to get out of the 40s!

Are you refering to just a simple strainer? If so go to the website below and type in strainer in the search box. It brings up complete strainers and replacement parts. I have ordered from her MANY times and they are always fast!!

It would be this screen, I borrowed the picture from another thread. Does anyone know the dimensions on it or a part #? I didnt see one that matched on that website.
