So far I have had the bottom paint redone, full bottom turned out great.
Removed the name and OH numbers, need to order new ones this week.
Mounted new tires and rims, have spare mount on order.

Getting ready to drop boat off at the dealer for some tower speakers and ballast upgrade. Only has center bag. Thinking of 750 for the rear or will the 400 be ok?

Once back from dealer I will have to detail and start loading the equipment.

750, 1100 if they will fit. Go big to begin with so you don't end up shopping for larger bags in a few months.

Why the bottom paint?


Also, where in Hilliard, Ohio do you boat, on that river? My wife's sister and her husband live in the same city, I never see wakeboats around!

The boat had gray bottom paint put on when new by the previous owner. I't would cost too much to restore the bottom, so I had it repainted with a hard bottom coat. It should last about 5 to 7 years.

When your in Hilliard next time check out Griggs. During the summer there are 5 - 10 wakeboard boats out at a time.
The Malibu behind my boat is dock there almost all summer.

Do you put in off Riverside, just south of Fishinger? How far North can you go?

Is that really what it's called? I read it wrong twice.

Yep, those are the crossroads.

I never thought of this place to ride, but what a gem! It's inside the outbelt around Columbus in a nice part of town. Just wonder how many wakeboats it can handle as I don't think it's a real wide body of water.

Yes, we put in just south of Fishinger or at the Scioto Boat Club further south. We run up to the Hayden Run Bridge. There is a slalom course just north of Hayden, the bridge helps keep the peace. The best part is NO TUBES!!
