      I just started looking at the A24. Can someone let me know what’s a good deal to go in and ask for. I’ve read 10-15% off is reasonable. Would to hear what people got and what they paid for it.

      I have a 2020 23 MXZ On order (not yet delivered) and conducted extensive measurements as it will be a tight fit as I have 302”.  With the platform off the total length end to end was 295” for the MXZ they had in the showroom.  (24’ 7”).  This had the tongue folded, measured from the end of the wedge to the tip of the bow.  You could gain another almost 2” by dropping the wedge was well.  

      as for height my dealer said I can get it under my 88” opening with 14” stock wheels and some minor suspension tweaking they will do on the trailer.  

      hope that helps.

      Could be the key got jammed up when you installed the new prop. 


      Skip down to Step 8 (Install the Propeller) and note the 2nd & 3rd items explain how a dry fitting without the key is done to make sure you have a tight fit.

      I am not sure why it would not be published either, but as far as boat length itself, many do care about it that due to slip or lake restrictions as well as registrations fuels.  

      I highly doubt a 23MXZ is going to fit in a 25’ deep garage.  Even with the platform taken off, the wedge, gates, etc. are still back there.

      Keep the crash pad, but put longer bunk boards on like @Wayne suggested.
      I had 3 Responses with Malibu bow roller trailers. Now I own a Ski Nautique with a Boatmate Trailer and the tilting crash pad bow stop. It’s perfect!

      When retrieving the Response you really had to be careful of how deep you backed the trailer in. To deep or on unusually steep ramps the bow would easily catch under the bow roller leaving ugly marks on the rub rail.
      With the crash pad it doesn’t matter, as long as it is not too small like the one on your trailer. Downside of the crash pad - once the boat sits on the trailer no chance to get the cover on. Luckily my new Boatmate trailer has the tilting crash pad that solves that problem.
