What made you switch from your A22's?

More an more people are spending time behind the windshield and I am coaching more surfing now then ever.  I also like the larger open space for my family.  We do lots of picnics and swimming on the water, compared to when my focus was mainly on wakeboarding.  I was really impressed with how well the T drove and does not feel any bigger from the helm compared to my A22s.

Lean on your dealer, they know who to contact and can get you pictures.  They also offer a photo book (for an extra charge) of your boat being built which is really nice and insures your boat gets lots of photos throughout the process.

Ridebutter- I have a T23 being built now (the spray date was Oct 13th).  The first few pictures I received from the production line are of the hull and top deck.  I have not received any pictures after they attach to the top deck to the hull.  How many days did it take for Malibu to build your boat?  I have heard anywhere from as quick as 4 business days to up to 10 business days.  Thanks!

I can't figure out how to insert images but here is a picture of the top deck - https://goo.gl/photos/KTUPV2QL7VF8rLF58

Curious, did you get a chance to demo the new helm before ordering?  I haven't yet, but it looks great.

I did not demo the helm before purchasing, but I do like the new dash and everything is pretty user friendly.  Although, you'll need to order the 'Zero-off GPS Cruise and Compass' option for $1k if you want the clock/compass to work. Small gripe, but kind of ridiculous unless someone knows of a workaround for a reasonable price.

Looks great!  Gatorstep or Seadek? How hot does it get? I'm considering black gatorstep...

And what is the flooring stuff in the compartments?

What is the flooring material in the compartments, I've been trying to find something to place down there.  I have the same color combo minus the metal flake and have been debating on what color seadek to run with. Yours looks great!!!!!

Thanks all.  The floor is http://www.aquatraction.com/  it does not get very hot, cooler than the cement vinyl for sure.

The material in the compartments is https://www.dri-dek.com/  they have lots of colors and ways to order it.  It was easy to cut with a utility knife and helps keep stuff off the bottom of those compartments.  

Its plain white and silver metalflake, not white flake.

How many pieces of dri-deck did it take to do your interior? Thanks for the info!
