Classic color combo. A neighbor of mine has the same boat albeit an '05.
The pictures do not do that boat justice. It is 10 times better in person. I love that boat. Chickee's will be flockin' to that boat like HB to free beer.

Enjoy Cam. Nice choice.

Cameron, I think the arrival of your new boat would be a great opportunity for a photo shoot with all your bunnies running around southern California and would be a great way to christen the beast. Plus you could meet the demand for picture Friday's for many days to come! Just a thought.... :D

Sodar,

Why did you go with the tandem trailer again?

Sodar
04-20-2007, 02:19 PM
Sodar,

Why did you go with the tandem trailer again?

Because the trailer gets drug around ALOT!! I love the way the tandems tow, track and ride, plus the peice of mind of having two sets of tires. 99% of trailers here in Cali are tandems and for most custom boats, triple axles. My guess is because of our distance to the lakes/river...

Boatless.

Cause, moving from my 190, the wake of the PS 209 was BIG! The PS 214 had not come out yet, and seeing the pics of that boat, I am glad I did not go that route... so the 197 it was!

I like the white too. Really sweet looking boat Sodar. Congrats!

I know Erk is a great guy and salesman, but I have to ask: Why buy a boat from a Chicago dealer if you're in CA? Got issues with your local dealers? Or did Erk make you a deal you couldn't refuse? (and nobody else closer could match?)

Ric
04-20-2007, 05:20 PM
Enlighten me please! Check with erk, but new for 07 was some changes to the shaft size . This meant that if you had the cupped prop for the 06, it was a few thousandths larger on the spline than the 07 shaft and would vibrate. I heard there was a service bulletin.

No big deal but you'd rather take care of that up front while erk has it

the only other thing was the ECM for the underdrive (1.5: 1) powerslot transmissions had an update that the dealer had to do.

CALL HIM
