      Ah. Every cylinder definitely points in that direction. I'm also wondering if the condensation issue isn't magnified by that exhaust design and alloy. Where similar iron exhaust systems may not react the same. Hope it runs great from here on.

      Let’s hope so.   New engine is in and was test fired in the shop.  Will be a few months until it’s back in the water.  May just pull a manifold to check for water as they are easy to remove and no gaskets.

      no flat bottom boat rides well in chop  especially pickle forks are worse ,  learn to fill center tank and keep the nose up, i now own a vhull vdrive wakeboat snd it makes a huge diff in rough water,  get a cobalt surf if you want a true better rough water ride, bigger boats in general do better, 3+ foot bigger should be better though

      Start with the suck gate, it will clean up the wave and make it longer.

      I have the earlier hull, but rarely need additional bow weight in addition to crew and mls. (But I do have 500lb bag I add to the bow walkthrough when I have little crew)

      I hit our local boat show this weekend, had similar thoughts.  Honestly, the RV show was a lot more interesting and fun a couple weeks back.  The wake boats all just kind of started to blend together into a huge ostentatious blob.  I found myself more interest in looking at s***ty jon boats with casting platforms haha.

      I have been a supporter of @The Hulk’s recessionary position in the used boats thread, but it wasn’t evident at the show. My favorite was a bass boat with a tag that read MSPR: $43,999, Show Price: $43,999!  The T250s were like MSRP: $150k, Show pricing: $146k.  Whoopdeedoo.  I must be missing something.
