    Love the lake, just filled the bravo 3 lube( hoping its burping) and i lost my original key for the ignition. Module went. New one comes with new key.
    20 amp dash fuse went, had to be towed back, not a great start, but still a start! Lol

    Yes firestone had the daughter tubing, bought a wakeboard for the kids, ive been driving boats since i was a kid, we had a small "explorer" with a 50hp johnson behind it. But as a inboard owner my knowledge has room to grow! Lol! Slowly getting a "just in case" kit together, my ignition module went as well, 4 prong, easy fix, guess ill keep the original mariah key for sentimental reasons. [emoji12]

    Question for you guys, when im done at the lake i pull the boat out and wrap it up on the trailer, is it bad for a boat to sit on a trailer? I only have 2 carpet bunks, on the ez loader it came with (2015) i tend to worry, when its in the water, the weight is Obviously distributed over the whole hull, but on 2 2x6 bunks seems to be a lot of load in one small area, i dont want it to warp the underside of the hull. Apparently it has happened but more with rollers.

    This ez loader is "adjustable" so i guess theres always an option to add bunks?
    Theres a term for it but cant remember what it is when there's a warp in the hull, normally causes the boat to list to one side on plane.

    Anybody else have their boats trailered when not in use? Or up on dock hoists?

    To my knowledge my boat has always been trailered when not in use. I have 4 bunks on my trailer. Great question on just 2 bunks.

    Being new to boat ownership, what is funny with your wake?

    It just seems wider in the middle and doesn't meet in the centre , different hulls, different type of wakes i guess. I normally drive and my wife is the spotter, so id look briefly while driving, but this time she wanted to try driving it. Im guessing it looks like that cause she didn't want to trim up a bit and the smart tabs are causing the bow to drop down.

    I know people swear by them, but i think next time i run it im going to remove the 60# actuator and see how it preforms without the tabs. Its on the corners i notice it, about cruising speeds, i trim down to prevent cavitation, the smart tabs keep this boat flat on the water and the bow down, and ive read on here, the mariah's like to lean into corners. Just the way the hull was designed.

    Im kind of stuck with them though now theres what, 18 screws in my transom? Lol!
