Thanks Pike. I will be taking a few pictures of the boat. Won't happen today, it is raining. Can someone help me with tower speakers. I want to buy a descent pair with an AMP and a nice sub. Any suggestions?

It was a long time coming. I finally got the boat and the color I wanted. Now if the weather was better, I can actually put it in the water. :D

Hope to see you out there.

Hopefully. Of course, I purchase a beautiful boat, and the weather goes to crap. Now it sits in the garage. Hopefully next weekend and hopefully, on the 5th I can take it out. See you on the water.

I have already sat inside of it several times. Mind you I have had this boat only for 6 days now. I need to dress her up. I want to add speakers to the towers and change out the stock speakers. I am torm between the Polk DB651 and the Kicker 650. Any suggestions?
As a matter of fact, I had to let out 30lbs of air just so that the towers could fit. When it was all said and done and a few choice words, I got it in. Had to put the air back in so I don't get a flat spot.

I had the same problem last year at this time trying to fit my 06 Mob LSV into garage. I ended up replacing factory trailer jack with a new Fulton with two 6" wheels rather than the one 8". Believe it or not the extra inch allows me to barely squeeze it in the garage with the tower folded down.

I have a question from your garage picture. How do you have the tower folded down and the cover on it? My '06 has a notched piece of plastic as the tower holder. I had to jerry rig milk crates and what not to hold tower on with cover while stored over the winter, wasn't the best but it worked.

This should answer that question. I can not take all the credit for this idea. There is another member in here that told me about this.

This way, everything stay off the boat cover and the boat. There is also no stress on the Bimini Top.

Thanxs Flyinghigh. I love it two. We are using as much as we can right now. We are trying to plan a trip to Utah at some lake to tear it up and leave the Moomba mark there.
Pike how was your trip to the Lake. Up here in Vegas, it was extreamly windy. The water at Lake Mead was like a scene out of "The Deadliest Catch" I kind of wanted to through some Crab Cages on the boat and go out fishing. Just kidding. The only equipment that goes on the boat is, Skiis, wakeborads, and Family.

So like I said in the pm, it was also windy at Mojave. The funny thing is I talked to a guy from Vegas that was at Mead in the morning and decided to drive down...All in all it was still awesome to get in the water...

Not too bad. It was pretty windy, but we found some fairly calm water against the Arizona shore across from Calville Bay. A little sore today though being my first real trip out of the year.

Launching and Trailering was a different story. Almost an hour to launch and two to trailer. If my wife and I wouldn't have both had our cell phones, I don't know how we would have done it. Probably like all the other ***holes that drop their buddies off to go fetch the trailer while they sit in the middle off the channel and wait making you weave in and out. We all know how fun steering an inboard is at 2 mph! Especially when the wind is blowing. Luckily I was able to communicate and time it so that I motored through the crowd right onto the trailer once she finally made it down. .....Just a little frustration about some of the inconsiderate boaters out there if you couldn't tell.

I'm going to give Mohave at try on of these weekends.

I might do the same. My brother-in-law had seen an article about Lake Mead Launching. It was talking about a familiy that took about 6 or 8 hours to get off the water. Something about getting to the ramp at about 5 o'clock and getting out of the water at about 1 am. That is somply BS. With all the different ramps to choose from, it shouldn't take that long. When I went, it took me 1 1/2 hrs to get off the water. I launched at Lake Mead marina. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!!!!!
