Very nice. Not diggin' the wheels, though. Not hating, just don't think they go.....

I think this is the first Indmar TT I have seen. Any reason for Indmar over new Ilmor?

Dang nice boat. Have to agree with S2S though, those wheels don't match the set up.

Absolutely beautiful boat. Looks like you already have a black snap-cover for it? I think the wheels look great and probably match the cover perfect--which would be the only time that a match matters. That boat belongs in the water 100% of the time....

thanks for the compliments guys! i'm excited to get it out on the lake soon!

not any particular one haha. we've heard good things about the 6.0L indmar, so we went with it


Nice Boat. What made you go with the full size tower?

having a full size tower on the X7 made it a bit weird to have a shorter one on a new boat. we're just so used to having the extra height from the x7 :)

i'll post some more pics once i grab my good camera and get some good views of the whole thing:D

yup! just on the bow though. there was a snap on cover full the whole boat on our X7, and the snaps would always get broken and it was a pain to put the cover on. we got a full-boat slip on cover custom made, so we used/will use that for this as well. the snap on cover for the front is awesome though! especially on those rough days when you don't want water in the bow 8p

I have had issues with the snap clips on the windshield.

Very cool ride indeed. How does the spare tire thing work? I can't use the factor spot on my trailer, as I had to pick between dragging the rudder guard on the trailer or dragging the spare when I go up/ down semi-steep areas. Prolly need to just lift the whole trailer up an inch or two.

Wow!!! I am generally not a fan of the color "Red"! However that boat is SHAPP! I think that is the only "Red" boat I would own! Congrats!

Yup! they're LED pucks, i'll see if i can find a pic of them in action. It lights up most of the wake and spray :D

Beautiful boat, but how does it ski?

It skis beautifully! It hauls up 4 barefooters like its nobody's business lol
Trick skiing is awesome too, makes a perfect wake and holds the speed beautifully

Hahaha i didn't even think of that when i posted! I think i may hold on to her for awhile longer :)
