    Politicians don't have to take any sort of IQ test to get elected. That's really sad. Normally, it is large companies that go through a "Bozo* Explosion," where they wind up with so many clueless managers that they lose all hope of market effectiveness. It is interesting to watch an entire state go through one. *Sorry to all of the real Bozo the Clown actors, you were good at what you did. So good that your name is now used in a derogatory way.

    I think the truck looks great and has great features. Now, if they can get it to 350 mile range while towing, I'm in. Anything less than that, and it wont work for how/where I use my truck.

    High speed charging on EVs is currently not linear. They charge much faster when empty and slow down substantially as they approach full. Also, those range estimates are not while towing. Range will be terrible when towing and trying to pull into a charging station with a boat hooked up would be a nightmare if not impossible depending on how it’s setup. I can’t think of many if any Tesla charging stations I’ve been to that would accommodate a trailer. I love my Model S as a daily driver, but I wouldn't want and EV for a tow vehicle even though the torque is amazing.It will be a long time before other car companies get the charging infrastructure in place to even consider charging on a road trip anyway.

    In 2035, California will no longer allow the sale of new gas/diesel vehicles... good question..

  11. I have never driven a 25lsv but my friend has a nice 2014 247 lsv that is the big brother to my 14 23lsv. The 247 feels a lot bigger not so much from the length but moreso (for me) in the width (Extra 8-12” iirc). LS3 motor in his 247 is a bit more powerful than my 409ss but feels similar underway. The extra mass/length and horsepower of the 247 makes it a smoother ride in the chop and that is definitely noticeable. I have only surfed behind his boat and it’s wave is not really much different from my 23lsv, maybe just a tad bigger.

    I see that California has no fees. Where are they going to get the highway/ road money from, when their all electric vehicle mandate kicks in? Better yet where are they gonna get all the power and infrastructure from to run all these vehicles?

    Just curious, is your background on lifts based on cable or floating types?

  15. The Magnusson-Moss Act offers some protection against non-OEM changes. But if you add an electrical item that adds load and the alternator goes, IMHO Malibu would have a case to deny warranty coverage.
  16. Take a dont ask dont tell approach. If they dont know its on there then they have no reason to deny anything.

    Looks like a lot of states have some sort of fee https://electrek.co/2019/12/27/get-ready-for-more-states-to-charge-ev-fees-in-2020/#:~:text=The list of states with,Utah%2C Virginia%2C Washington%2C West
  18. Has anyone checked into what adding the EZDrive does to the Malibu 5 year Warranty? We had lots of random eletrical and software problems with out new 2020. Would hate to give Malibu a reason not to replace an alternator for example. Or for that matter had positive or negative experience with aftermarket changes to the boat during the warranty period.
  19. On the comparison topic, how do the modern 25's compare with the 2013 era 247 hulls. Obviously there isn't a ton of length / space to be gained by only going 6" longer, but I am curious about the performance differences. We are on a big lake that gets pretty rough - all relative, but to the point that I sometimes have to go surf speeds to cross open water to reach protected / smooth waters. We are by no where near experts behind the boat and while I sure it would be better, I don't know how much we would appreciate the likely wave improvements over our current boat.

    Group Buys 2020 - Help me out!

    I bought a handful of TMC towels from @Rmack in 2016 iirc. They are still in great shape and we use them all the time. Unfortunately it doesn't appear he's been around here for 3 years.

    You can also get domed numbers that fit below the rub rail, on the burgundy portion just below the rail. That's what we did with ours and like the look better than numbers above, IMO. You just can't get the ones that have the cross through the first letter, as that will be too tall and would go into the white fiberglass and would potentially peel up.

    There was, but I have not seen him on here in quite some time. I bought 2 one year and 4 another year. They were pretty good towels. What would be AWESOME would be to get some of the Mission TUKO towels with a TMC logo. I'd grab a set of those immediately if available.

    That depends on which country (or state) you are talking about and how you define "subsidized." For example: https://www.forbes.com/sites/bjornlomborg/2020/01/17/the-imfs-huge-miscalculation-of-energy-subsidies/#202a76a64b42
  24. Poster i was in your same spot looking for a ski boat after selling my MC a few months ago. I am a slalom / course skier in the 28 to 32 off lengths, no footing i like my face!! Just bought a 2012 Response TXI after getting a lot of opinions from others on the ski ability. I was in the market for a 2003 to 2006 LXI that i have skied behind for more then 10 great years. The problem is the high prices of those now old but EXCELLENT slalom boats is a bit crazy and the low bow issue catching wakes sucks. I've skied 22 to 28 off behind the 07 to 11 LXI and was disappointed in the stiff and larger wakes before. The 2012 TXI and most likely newer seems to be absolutely excellent so far after 5 or 6 runs! I hope this helps as its all subjective but i can attest that my surveys months ago were similar to what i read hear and on ski it again. As a update i skied 3 days ago behind a 2000 sportster at 32 off and the wake at that line length while soft is larger than the TXI which is almost not there!

    Never said that. I was simply addressing taxation and pointing out that the EV's themselves are subsidized. AFAIK, other than what @oldjeep said, there's no tax on EV's to support road maintenance in the manner in which gas and diesel is taxed. The intent of some of the taxation, at least in our state, is to fund road repairs and road construction. Perhaps there are other states doing something similar to MN, but I've not investigated it at all.
  26. The stupid part is that you can't easily source a dang rebuild kit. I had a tranmission shop ready to rebuild mine for like $700 but they couldn't find the parts anywhere.

    Yes range will be a problem until we can solve the energy density problem of current battery technology. Solid state batteries have the potential to increase the energy density by about 2.5x. Which would improve current ranges from 350mi to about 875mi. Now even under load we are getting into ranges that would allow bigger trips to happen. Been keeping an eye out for this for a while.
