Drew, those pics look great, saw some on WW and fb.
Where the live pics from AWS evening with the stars or is that tonight?
BTW when did Bob Soven take over Phil Soven for rage alliance wake awards... Plus what happens to the wake brothers show, that was pretty entertaining.
Wake brothers was cancelled after the first season I believe
Maybe not identical but I'm in the process of retro fitting my 02 LSV W/ a similar upgrade to MC surf tabs. Got all the parts but got side tracked building my winter boat storage canopy. I plan to start installing it this winter. See link below:
How would a boat drive with the swell
ie the drag on the boat vs overweighted saced out driving
While I haven't driven it, the boat stays level. It's an even weight system. What I don't know is if the Vision system resets the tabs to even when you come off plane to idle & when getting on plane like the Wakeplate does on Supra.
Hope to find that info out soon . . . . myself.
The only real different thing in person you don't see in pictures is how beefy this system really is. Its all thick plating and just very strong looking. After looking at it, I keep thinking why doesn't the wakeplate have a stronger beefier mounting system.
AWS said the option price is apx 3K on the Swell, I personally was very surprised at this price since other boat companies want quite a bit more for their systems.
Shane was pretty busy so i didn't get the full run down on the Swell system, and how it works but I plan to talk to him on the phone later this weekend to ask the questions. Its hard to talk to him about that when hes got people to show the entire SC too LOL.
Not to take away from Malibu Surfgate, several of the boats on display with surfgate had loose tabs. Not sure if this is fixable. Also it seems like surfgate has 2 different models of the gate. The Axis line had cheaper smaller gate tabs. Where the LSV and MX line had larger beefy tabs and those where loose at all.
I got to check out the new G21 first hand, man thats a sweet boat but inside feels small to me
Also the new Axis A24 was on the floor. Big boat, looks really nice but I have never spent any time in an Axis other then on a Trailer LOL.
I passed the Swell equipped SC this morning around 9:00am around Eugene, OR on the I5. I was rolling 70mph in the opposite direction. I am sure Shane was on his way home
So wish I could have seen it in person (close up).
