I spent an hour "fingering" one in a dealership a couple weeks ago. While not bad looking, the build quality was sub par! Materials also seemed cheap.

That is pretty cool....The InstyFill?!? He's gotta come up with a better name though. And clearly it needs some more development work. But I would agree it has some serious potential.

Potential, no doubt. Those accuators need to be moved off the transom though, in the way where they are on that boat.

Murphy and Cooper: Separated at birth???





I still say the Surf Gate is a good idea and, if nothing else, perhaps helps push the mfr's towards truly mult-function boats. I have a dream....I have a dream that someday we'll have a boat that puts out a wakeboard wake equal to the X-Star and a surf wake of an Enzo.


...and has a good fuel pump.

I love the idea of being able to easily switch between wakeboarding, port surfing, and starboard surfing, but this wave doesn't look particularly well formed. I'm interested in seeing further testing an examples. Maybe this is still a bad example.
