New VTX

Recommended Posts

skurfer

Picked her up yesterday! 2011, VTX, diamond hull, nicely equipped. MC convert coming from 205V hull, I hope you all will have me. Honestly feels like home here, more so than the other TT.

I have to give thanks to Greg at Active Water Sports. He's been dealing with my questions for more than 2 years! Many thanks to the AWS family, Matt, Warren, Gerry, Brian, John, Dan's, etc.

We had it out twice prior to purchase! We love it, ski wake better, surf wake better, tower better, handling better, more space, wakeboard wake not as much straight up pop, a little different and we are going to have to get used to it, softer landings. Rough water ride might not be as good, but we don't like going out in rough water anyway.

Question: boat came with ACME 13.5X16 prop. I have a 14.75X15.5 OJ on my MC that I am selling. Can I and if I can, should I swap props? I love the 14.75X15.5 OJ on our old boat. And I hear it's a sweet prop for a lot of boats in the MC lineup......?....

great looking color - very clean and simple.

I notice that your board racks are on the lower holes. How do you like that? Any advantages or disadvantages to that?

Good so far. How my dealer set it up. Surf rope tends to hang up on them, we'll probably move the surf rope to the ski pylon. Lots of Bu's at my dealer come this way. LSV had it on the top???

Great looking boat! :rockon: The MC should have a splined shaft and the prop won't fit the Bu.

Wakejack works great, have been using one all season, well worth the $ and a good quality product.
