Took Delivery of our new Boat yesterday! Went out and got the first 6 hours of engine break in done! It was pure torture not to be able to get out there and Surf! I found three things and need to be fixed which is about 5 less than the last boat. Depth finder wouldnt read. Oz tower needed tightens. Sounded like a squirrel was squeaking/rattling around in the Left tower base, but all good now after a couple of twists of the socket wrench. Last the glove box latch needs realigned!

Other than that I absolutely love my Mojo. I couldn't stand it and cheated and filled only the stock left bag(400lbs) and the surf wake was nice! Can't wait to throw my custom surf sack and the integrated bow sac in there!!

I only took a couple pics. Ill post them when i get home from work as i cant seem to post them from my Iphone. I promise to take more on Sat. I also love the new cover! No more rope!

Yeah if the boat was not at the dealer getting the gremlins worked out I wouldn't be sitting here typing this message. Seriously thinking about calling in tomorrow since it would be a 4 day weekend!

Congrats on the new boat. Keep an eye on the pins at the bottom of the swim deck bracket, they are quite flimsy. I discovered one missing when i stepped on the deck and it through me into the lake. I replaced mine with a couple of spring pins from the local hardware store, problem solved. I've had the same issue with the glove box latch and tower, otherwise couldn't be more pleased.

Yeah I am not a fan of the glovebox open/closure design. Also with the top of the glovebox being a semi-hard plastic I think it might have a tendency to warp but I am not sure.

Still Love my Mojo. Think I'll enjoy her for many years!

Chris, congrats on the Mojo. I'd like to find myself on one of those someday.

On a side note, how do you like that Koal surfboard? I got one a while back and haven't been able to use it yet - still chilly around here.

Didn't mean to take over Salyers thread by posting a pick of my mojo, just was sharing cuz I'm still so excited about the boat. Still looking forward to seeing any moombas and any mojos out there and especially yours Salyers.


I'm at Lake Murray, in Lexington, SC. Ordered and purchased from Carolina Inboard. Great people.

ran it all day today surfing and boarding, had it running at top speed at 42.4 mph and a small chop and 2 on board with stock 330.

my ronix is a cortez, not a Koal and I love it, but obviously its much slower hence it's not as good as the inland surfer for cutting and spinning. thats my buddy on my ronix in the pic, he's on port side, I'm goofy so I'm on starboard side. that ronix is 5' 4" and is perfect for first timers to advanced. thats why I love that board too.
