    Yup, Supras are in the same factory and materials as the Moombas. I would also agree with skiyaker an quality perception. The Axis I crawled around in at the booth they had at wakeboard tour this spring gave me pause. The gelcoat looked wavy and also like orange peel in places, the windshield was loose and rocked when I grabbed it walking through the boat, the stitching on a couple areas was stretched so tight you could play the threads like a guitar, the snap in carpet (which I would ove to have) was poorly done, the snaps were in the wrong places and it wouldn't lay flat... stuff like that. All except teh gelcoat can be fixed pretty easily but not a good first impression...

    Maybe you should troll the Mailbu forums. I can attest that my Moomba has better construction than my Malibu did, both in the hull and in the interior. My Malibu boat was back to the shop having several piece of interior replaced as it was falling apart after 10 months of owership. The hull was 6" less, but the boat was several hundred pound lighter. Now, my Malibu did have the best slalom wake I have ever skied on, but this different than construction.

    Yes, I realize that the two boats were of different years, but I have owned both brands.
