    Default Looking for a new TUG!

    Bit of a sad day for me today! Sold the Outback to a wonderful family who will put it to great use! That machine was a wonderful ride for us for the 3 years we owned it!

    Now on to another TUG. Question now is what do I want this time?

    We are in the middle of purchasing a lot on a ski lake in a 5 lake skl community. Want a slalom machine with no tower as it won't fit into the boat house that already exists on the property.

    Don't believe our next boat will be a Moomba as I sit here speaking now but one never knows????

    Will start the hunt and hope we can find something within a reasonable distance of our new upcoming home just south of Houston!

    I will gladly stay a contributing guy here if nobody objects that I might have a different ride after we move??????

    That is a good ways south! Well welcome to Texas, be sure to head on over to Brazos Bend State Park for a day and check out some awesome wildlife. It's not to far from you.

    Having actually skied behind a Nautique 200 ,hands down this would be my first choice. now realistically,nothing wrong with Moomba outback,s. But another option to a similar boat and similar pricing would be looking into a new Geckko gtr..... very similar boats,as they share some heritage if you go way back... I see they are back up and running. Just a thought..As for the carbon pro,my last info was that they are outrageously priced??

    Check Ball of Spray forum. Lots of excellent skiers over there. Carbon Pro seems to be the choice of long line15 off to 35 off for wakes. For shortline, the 200 seems to be the choice. Prices I have seen put the Carbon about $12K less than the 200. The 200 seems to be the most expensive ski boat out there. But I have never owned a CC because they are alway (in my experience) more then Bu, MC and of course Moomba.

    Why not order an Outback without a tower?

    Based on your posts, I think you would like a Carbon Pro, CC200, or a 197 with ZO. If you compete, you really should be on a boat that will pull you in tournies.

    After you look around, you may find the Outback to be just right (for your wallet). Towers fold down. It's a pain, but still faster and easier than trailering.

    Had a 99 outback, now have a 2009 supra 21v. Its the #$^%&& for slalom and barefoot so Im casually looking for a older bu response, sanger or maybe even a little flightcraft to add to the stable. The 21v is awesome but puts out a massive wake even at 42 mph
