View Full Version : Lemon's
12-09-2006, 11:31 PM
I have orderd an new Mobius LSV, Spray date Dec 18th.... I am told the Factory needs 2 weeks to turn out this boat (Very impressive) and about a week to deliver to Colorado. My dealer is telling me his crew needs a couple days to prep this boat before I take delivery. I cant hardley wait for the boat to arive, yes I will be the first idiot on the lake when the ICE comes off of it making laps for the break inn. ( how much ice is to much to operate a moomba in?)
Then the evil little voice arrives in the back of my head wondering about the crew building my new boat. This falls right accross Two major hollidays! X-mas and the new year! Friday of the work week befor x-mass are they going to be thinking about the craftmanship of my boat or the weekend with the kids and inlaws coming in? Is this spray date a lemon in the making? Has any one had any issues whith a holiday boat build? I know there are lots of checks after the actual build of a boat but I am always a little rummy come Jan 2nd myself. SC please give the crew at the factory a pep talk for me and save the best for the last of the year. This is my first boat and I have huge plans of many hours of sunburns,Children laughter, and bikini watching, from my new prize possession. Any one who's had any issues with spray dates accross this time frame please chime in!

First you have to change your name to alitteskeered.
Then we will tell you to relax & study up on this boat drink: 1 part cranberry juice, 2 parts orange juice and one part coconut rum. I actually prefer a 1/1/1 mix myself.
Add hot weather, a hot boat, properly attired bikinis if you have them … and – you’re smoking. I don’t care if you’re pulling a tube – you’re smoking!

Our team will be filled with Christmas cheer. Goodwill to all. An extra touch of comfort in all of our hearts. Quality will deck the halls and pervade the line.
Seriously, the only thing we expect is to build each boat a little better than we did the day before. Don't worry, when the ice breaks, your boat will run reliably, throw up a tall, beefy wake, and run long after you have decided to shut it down for the day.
I'll be looking a yellow LSV in second qc.

O2BinVallarta, I am in western colorado about 60 miles south of Grand Junction. If the blizzard aint two bad I am heading accross the mountains to pick up my Lsv this weekend. The Dealer called and said he just unloaded it off the truck. YEA!!!!!!
smokedog2, I tryed your drink....... I am guessing when you say Cranberry you mean the sour juice not the cocktail mix? Its pretty good but way too sweet for me. I am thinking I will try with the strait juice next time! On the name....... It is usually aintskeerdyet! which yes I am perhaps a bit on the skeerd side of things right now. But the web site would not let me finish so its the web site that is miss leading people not me!!

I believe that drink is referred to as "Panty Remover"!

That drink requires sun and heat, not sun and snow. I would never consider it a snow drink - and you have snow!
And the drink is now and forever named.
oh, yea the cocktail stuff

Seth, the only thing on your boat that is even close to being lemonie is the yellow color. She looks great :D See ya Saturday! Bill

Bill your right, except that I have never seen a lemon that pretty! The snow storm was a bit firce 4+ inches of new snow on the 5 hour trip home over the mountain passes. People look at you kinda funny when you go by them on the pass with a bright Yellow boat on snow packed roads in the middle of January. I will try and figure out how to load a photo we stopped just before the boat got all nasty and coverd with slush and took a photo. It will have to be my show off picture till I get her out of the cellar and into some water that is not white and -20

I would love to see that picture.
01-23-2007, 06:03 PM
Yes.. Must have Pics
wow, i would love to see that pic. i bet the boat was dirty as could be.
i used to have a yellow moomba and now a yellow supra. when i picked up my supra in december of 05 in kansas city it snowed for about a hour on the way back home. i understand the look you describe from others :? but i sure was not in a blizzard.
i assume you took i-70, that would give me the freaks going thru the eisenhower tunnel and then the grade on the west side before frisco :shock:

Hey bud...been off awhile...congrats!!! Everytime I have to shovel (Which seems to be about every 3-4 days) I just keep reminding myself that summer will soon be here and the Moomba will be free! Went to the boat show last weekend, good times!

Okay I admit another illerate here I dont know how to poast pics so I PM'd Joe techi and am hoping he will bail out another idiot. So hopfully coming soon.
iaonbb, Thanx man the boat is sweet, I cant wait to get it in the water. I was at the Denver boat show saturday. Some pretty sweet boats there, Bill, Tom, Larry, and the whole crew from RoMoBoCo were all busy. Hard to get them off to the side for a visit.
qb12 We took the long way around over Lavetta pass through the San Luis valley and then over Saquach pass into the gunnison valley. It was quite the ride!

Okay I pulled it off and figured out how to poast the pics they are in the Pride & Joy section.... I cant wait to add some Bikini's and wake boarding to the boat pictures.
