Woo Hoo! I'm back!

Greetings Crew.

I am back. I bought my first Malibu in 2008. It was a 2001 Sunsetter LXi. We loved that boat. I had it for 3 years. I regret selling that boat. I really missed the family times on the lake.

I just picked this up. It's a 2007 Wakesetter VTX. It's a little high on hours, 860, but my friend ,who is the service manager at my local Malibu shop, had vouched for it. He has done all the services and work on the boat since it was new. The boat is used but well maintained. The previous owner replaced the Illusion tower and put a new G3 tower and speakers. I think I did alright.

Man. Can't wait till it warms up and hit the lake. Planning on doing some trips I did not get a chance to do. There are a couple of lake in Nor Cal I want to hit and there is the almighty Lake Powell.

Watch out! Here I come!

Hey Tim

There is Lake Elsinore, about 15 mins north.

There is Lake Perris, 25 mins north on I-215.

There's Silverwood Lake, about an hour north on I-15.

There are a couple lakes down in San Diego.

Thinking about taking it to Mission Bay in San Diego but its salt water. Not sure if I wanna do that.

LOL. I think I can take care of that myself. I have mad ideas planned for the boat.

It's a pretty good lake. It had a bad rep for awhile being a land locked lake. The city made a big effort to clean up the lake. They Installed some aerators a few years ago and it has made a great improvement. You still don't want to go swimming for a long time. The occasional dip and wipe out on the lake is fine.

Well there are those that love the delta...me no so much when you think of it as norcal's toilet bowl. Berryessa nothing exciting...skip those and hit Oroville, Bullards Bar and of course Shasta.

Bass Lake. We've rented a house there the last couple of summers. The water's not great unless you start right at 8:00AM when they open but the overall experience living on the waterfront for a week is awesome for a family vacation.

Hey Jay!!

Oh Man! That brings a lot of memories. I'm happy that you are enjoying the boat. I heard that you may have redone the interior.

"is better than ever".... I hope so after giving you that screaming deal. :biggrin::thumbup: You should have had a lot of money left over.

I have to contact you about Bass Lake. My friend goes there and he also likes it.

We are having a great time with it and it is treating us well. Yes, I have made it about half way through reupholstering the interior. Have done all the work myself. That, the new stereo and all the other toys have long since surpassed any $$$ left on the table. :biggrin: I'll post some interior photos one of these days. Ask all you want about Bass lake. We have gone the past two years and have had a good time.

They are pretty awesome, although can get a little loud in the cabin sometimes.
