    I honestly don't understand how nautique and mc haven't priced themselves completely out of the market. Already. Bu isn't far behind either. I am so thankful there are still a few companies making awesome boats at somewhat reasonable prices. I mean how hard is it to make an awesome wakeboat for $150k? Try to make one almost just as good for a third of that -that's the key. Thanks moomba.

    I think its because only 2 types of people are really buying the boats at those prices. People who can afford to buy it outright at the day of delivery, and those who really want the Stigma of having one so they pinch every penny to afford the payment

    thanks for the photos, hope to get to the Nashville boat show maybe on Sunday.

    I hear you on the prices - super rich guys that the money isn't important to, or super long loan lengths. I still don't understand it. There just isn't enough differentiation in the boats to me. They all have basically one of two comparable engines (either an Indmar or a PCM), they are about the same size, perform the same function, and are finished similarly. Oh I know you can see a few extra thousand in better vinyl, more padding, fancier electronics (most of which after zero off I wouldn't want) but double or even triple the cost? And, a 20 year payment on a $140,000 boat is still well over $1,000 monthly.

    I've always wondered why the Centurions have that hump in the floor at the walk-thru. Always really bothered me. Anyone know?

    I believe Centurion claims that it is for rigidity.

    Don't listen to him. He's been checking out all the cialis ads lately a bit too much!

    And yes, it was difficult but I was able to let the mama joke setup slide this time...
