      Yeah didn’t make it up your way much this summer and never with the boat.


      I’d say the 2021 A24 will definitely push that lift past it’s limit, unfortunately. Dry weight and full 76gal tank of gas alone is gonna be just shy of 6k and that doesn’t include whatever isn’t included in their “dry weight“ number (tower?) and any gear, etc you have on board. Would still love to chat more with you offline about this tho...

      I just talked to my Lift guy. He told me not to do it. Not sure I want a new boat and a New Lift. In fact, I know I dont. so... how is the a22?

      If the Sunsetter is a 2005 or 2006 then it is not going to be as good b/c they ruined the hull by making it too big and wide.   If it's the Sunsetter like mine (99-04 hull) it skis just a good as a response b/c they have the same hull and surface area.    My SSLXI has a foot of overhang in the transom to make it 1 foot longer.   I ski my 03 sunsetter and my friends 05 Response lxi every week and if I close my eyes I can't tell the difference.

      I have had a number of boats with white seats through the years and don't recall them being overly difficult to keep clean, but I also wipe the interior vinyl down after every outing (or virtually every outing) and use Babes Seat Soap and Seat Saver often and liberally.  And I am very pro-active with family and guests and explain how things like sunscreen and food can easily stain vinyl.   I'm not shy about telling people what they need to do to things like staining seats or chipping gel coat to a minimum.   

      My current boat has Tungsten Grey seats and I think its really sharp with the color scheme of the whole boat; but with a different color scheme I would not shy away from white if that's what color vinyl made the other boat colors pop.
