Not very popular at all. Most people involved in wakeboard or hydrofoil don't appreciate the lack of tower or ballast, not to mention seating or storage. And it seems like even skiers & barefooters don't get it either.

The only guy I ever knew who owned one just cruised around in it. He was the kind of guy who had money to burn..... and he did.

The Callaway engine was a finicky pain in the arse to keep tuned and running like a top. Does it have the LS1 or the Callaway Supernatural?

We sold our 2008. the 73 year old guy that bought it absolutely loves it. The best part of the boat is the noise the motor makes. It's not loud, but it is the absolute best sound on the water.

the mid 60 mph speeds aren't bad either

my 97 with a callaway supernatural has been great in my opinion,,,,we pulled novice/mid wakeboarders with a skylon, pulled parasails beach

start with 400' of rope, and its the "hole shot from hell" for barefooting (many hours doing run ups to 40mph), jerks the big boy rookie/slalom

skiers right up

i had a valve spring break at 400+ hours, and a rocker arm nut come off at 800+ hours

i suppose if you ran it at 60mph all the time it might take a worse beating,,but its fun to put it there once in a while

when you foot at 40, and you could go 60, your not at the high rpm of the engine versus running a 46mph top end boat

at 40

i make sure she's serviced regularly, but i have no 'wrench monkey' in me, just try to treat her right!!!

she's my 3rd inboard i've owned, and the best,,,my 06 23lsv wakesetter is a battleship to drive versus the

vette, i dont think i'll get rid of her anytime soon.....
