You bumped a thread that's over 3 months old to share your wife bagging on a young family's boat? Honestly, I'm glad my significant other would just be excited to see someone else with a wake boat...

From everything I have read, the 205v is going to board better; the NXT will surf better. The OG 210 has a wake that is pretty unique, ride it once and you will either have to have one or your knees...

That is the whole point of this boat. They know they are not going to steal many MC, Nautique, or Malibu customers, if any at all. But they can retain their customers with an in house solution....

It has a really nice surf wake. It's definitely a v drive. As far as looks, think run about combined with the look of a small cruiser; it's tall for a tow boat.

I think the goal for Sea Ray is to...

Your description above is correct. An ideal towing scenario would be a long wheel base vehicle with a tow point that was at the rear axle, reducing the moment acting on the rear from the...

Actually, tow rating are calculated with a full tank of fuel and an average sized driver in the vehicle. Yes, allowing a buffer for other passengers and gear is a good decision, but that wasn't what...

Per the OP, his boat on the trailer with a full tank of fuel was less than the 6300lb tow rating; I was merely going off that.

Who is dodging? You claimed they don't test the JGC for towing. Clearly that isn't true.

You then claim the trailer has ebrakes, that it is smaller, and lighter than a specific boat. (none of...

It absolutely is, and when that becomes a factor with the vehicle it is usually spelled out in the owners manual.

Not blind, nor am I ignoring the point. What if 75% of the max load would have been the difference? Like I said, maybe we should all keep it at 50% just in case.
