    Overhauling 2019 25LSV Stereo

    I figured you if anyone.. do you happen to know exactly the model which malibu uses for the 8” cabin speakers? How many watts do you give them? Thanks

    How much off MSRP?

    Hi DrFred, What Bu' did you get? Chris

    How much off MSRP?

    i got 25% off MSRP. i was reasonably happy with that, given the current value of boats. In other negotiations with Nautique (18%) and Mastercraft (22%).
  5. So, I noticed at the end of last season my passenger side Malibu factory rack (non PTM clamping) would initially lock in place facing outwards, and then eventually work it’s way back facing into the boat. I’ve inspected the pull release on the bottom of the rack and it seems to be engaging / disengaging whenever I pull down to rotate it from inside the boat (or parallel) to outside. I’m hoping a spring or pin may just be loose in the rack assembly and I don’t have a bigger issue... Has anyone dealt with a similar issue before, if so, what was the fix? Thanks! Clint

    '01 VLX Vs. '07 VLX

    I think the 07 is a bit bigger and has a more friendly wake for surfing and wakeboarding. If that is your only decision factor, I would probably go with the 07. there are other things to consider as well, tower, electronics, power wedge (I think it was available that year) as an option. I think there are folks that could go either way on this depending on personal preference.
  7. I’m glad I don’t have to deal with it. Looks like a PITA to mess with.

    Neutral BUS bar - 2010 LSV

    Did you look under the dash? Pretty sure that is where it is on my boat - and every other boat I have worked on.

    Neutral BUS bar - 2010 LSV

    Thought I would bump this post to see if someone has direct experience with a WakeSetter. Thanks
  11. Up here, pre-Covid, the local Tige/ATX dealer had surf night - $25 bucks and you and a few others could surf all thier boards for hours. Great idea that might return one day...

    LS3 Oil Change

    I think I see it. That guy is on really tight. It is just right of dipstick for Transmission Fluid. I will try to get it off and feed hose. Thanks for your help! Will keep in touch.
  13. In 2012 the carpet wasn’t glued it was snap in. There are some videos talking about the process on YouTube

    2001 VLX - Carpet Replacement?

    Thanks for sharing! My biggest challenge would be the labor of prepping all the fiberglass, and I don't have the time to put into it myself. Material price for Gatorstep and Seadek seem to be pretty close. The expensive part is paying for a professional's labor vs doing the work myself.

    2001 VLX - Carpet Replacement?

    I forgot to mention the Gatorstep price was very reasonable IMO. I think my complete floor was like $5-600. Granted that was a few years ago, but you could definitely do it for less than a grand. Assuming you take the old stuff out yourself.
  16. You could add these to shade the sides. https://www.carvercovers.com/boat-skirts
  17. Both UV and heat are generally hard on materials. Do the best you can to reduce exposure to both.

    LS3 Oil Change

    I still have the same boat, and follow the same procedure. Fish the drain hose down through the hose with the brass t handle near the V- Drive (under the center rear cushion). Drain it into a 5 gallon bucket overnight.
  19. We go to Lake Powell several times a year. I think the environment is at least similar to Phx. Even the boats in the covered slips take a beating. The boats that are left out, even covered, age must faster than you would expect. A GOOD cover will last a year or two. Even if waxed a couple times a year, the gel will still oxidize. If it was me, I would do my best to try to find a way to store under cover. A boat is a huge expense. It will depreciate either way, but it will do a much better job of holding its value if stored under some sort of covered structure.
  20. It is your boat - do whatever you want. But sunlight will embrittle vinyl (especially darker colours) and oxidize gel coat. BTDT.

    2001 VLX - Carpet Replacement?

    I have emails out to a few local places waiting on quotes... I think I would prefer SeaDek, but depending on price of new carpet, it may not be worth it. Will post prices if anyone gets back to me.
  22. I'm looking at replacing old glue in carpet on my '01 VLX with either new carpet or doing the full swap to seadek, and came across this thread. If you don't mind sharing, how much was the carpet replacement on your 2012? Trying to get ballpark numbers to decide if it's worth the jump to seadek.
  23. I wasn't going to nor would I leave my 2019 25 lsv in an uncovered slip all summer, but at least two people told me that if kept in an uncovered slip, there will be minimal damage to the boat. I know several people who keep their 2019+ towboats out all year round in Vegas. They say to just keep it waxed.

    2001 VLX - Carpet Replacement?

    Well, my number is not including professional labour. IIRC some folks leave carpet on the gunwales, and only SeaDek the floor. That would not be my choice. Carpet is fine for me, although I'd have loved a Boston Whaler style floor (like the old Hydrodynes) with snap-in carpet.
