My friend dave has a sanger v215 and transmission went out yesterday. any better places to take it to other that paradise or century?
Old     (wakeboardsam)      Join Date: Jun 2008       08-30-2009, 4:15 PM Reply   
Century is the best. If you can get the transmission out yourself I know a transmission shop that easily rebuild it. Getting it back in can be difficult. It is can be very hard to line back up. I use these when ever I am installing either a transmission or Vdrive:

I'm looking for a wakeboard partner to share my boat with. Alternatively, I would also consider having somebody take over payments - serious inquiries only please.

Also, I would like to get a group going for Saguaro wakeboarding on Sunday mornings at sunup – when the water is perfect. Please let me know. I can be a passenger or need reliable “passengers."

The boat is a 2007 Tige 20v with ballast system. See boat pictures at

Hey All,
If any of you guys need a 3rd or even a 4th please take my crew out! I broke my leg and can't go out for at least 6 weeks (I can't board for like 6 months, but I'll be able to drive!). We trained Durty Curt how to hold the flag, fill the ballast, pull in the rope, drive a little, and clean the boat for over two years, he's top notch, pays his way, and is a good guy!! Lantz is also the BEST 2nd mate out there! I trust no one more when it comes to my boat (well maybe Century Marine) and having fun at the lake. Lantz is good at everything and basically keeps my but out of trouble! So someone please take these guys out! Love fest over!!

Does the walk through metal detector go off or just the wand? I have a plate and 6 screws in my forearm and have only had a DMV one go off, never an airport... just curious.
Old     (itzon)      Join Date: Sep 2008       09-09-2009, 11:36 AM Reply   
i never went off (lol) until after 9/11 and some/all the equipment got upgraded. now i'd say 1 of 5 trips it goes off both in the detector and hand held wand. i just look at’em and say “i have a screw” as he/see stare at my elbow (short sleeve shirt) all confused, trying to determine if he/she should call the manager… now i just have fun with it, but careful as they don’t like jokes at the airport anymore… 9/11 this Friday - RIP all – lets not forget!

i'm afraid to ask what you did!

Wands make mine go off, like I said, just the one walk through.

Snowboarding- backside 180 on a big spine, came down a little of axis and put my left arm down. Sounded like a branch snapping, as friends near me heard it. Didnt come through the skin, but my arm looked pretty cool for a couple hours all crooked.
Whats your war story? haha

If anyone needs a 3rd or has some open room, I'll kill anyone you want if I can come ride. Ok maybe not kill but I'll send a real nasty email. Good for money, clean, driving etc. Just got my own board and looking to get better and have some fun on the lake even on the weekdays. My email is livinitup731 (at)

New to this board, I have a boat but its a 20' baysuck, i'm re-rigging it for wakeboarding this winter(tower, platform, wrap sitting, paint, and PP)but that won't be until next spring(money). I have my own gear and looking to be a third, I can drive, clean and pay for gas. Looking for lake pleasant people since I live in the west valley. Can defiantly do week days. Just looking to have fun, and thanks again.

Is anyone going to saguaro this upcoming Sunday morning real early, while the water is still nice. Looking to get out and "fly." I haven't been able to go out a lot this year, so it will be a real treat!

I also just drastically reduced the price on my boat to sell it quicker. I'm taking a bit of a loss on it, but offering a special price for WakeWorld members:

It's getting close but you can still launch off the ramp. 2nd dock is closed and as of right now the shore launching zone next to the main dock is marked off with no parking barriers

Hello All:

Who does the maintenance on your boat? Looking for non-dealers. My source has retired... I'm trying to determine if I should do it myself or look for another person. Thank you in advance.

p.s. Please don't blast me for posting here.

Sam, is that the one on Main and ValVista in Mesa? I've been meaning to bring by boat on by there. Do they have a reasonable hourly rate?
Old     (wakeboardsam)      Join Date: Jun 2008       11-30-2009, 9:09 PM Reply   
Yes, Century Marine on Main in Mesa. Century is a family owned business and they are in it for the long haul, three or four generations work there. Since they are in it for the long haul they work for repeat business. They care about the customer and it shows, they do good work at a reasonable price and pretty quickly too. I'm probably what you could call a pain in the butt customer, but they still treat me good. In my opinion, Century Marine is what boating is all about, friends and family and good times! As long as they will have me, I'll always have my boating needs met by them!

no where else to vent.
how the f is that Michigan is getting a cable park and AZ doesnt have one yet?

absurd. Isnt wakeboarding big enough in our state to merit the investment? The land, i would think, would be cheaper than it's been in years. would be nice. I dont have the money, but what gives?

WATER is the problem!!! It's hard to get, and even harder to keep! Water is worth a fortune here in Arizona. With the amount of water that would be required to have good cable park a developer could build a nice lake community and make a heck of a lot more than they ever could on a cable park. If you really want a cable park the answer is with the City of Tempe. Develop a plan and have it built on Tempe Town Lake. That is the only way it will ever be built here in Arizona. Mesa Waveyard is dead and will NOT be built. Even in the real estate boom the only way it could be built was by making it an elite resort with timeshares, condos, etc... The other cable park that was planned in Casa Grande has gone bankrupt, we did the BK appraisal about a year ago. The demand isn't really there either. It might be with the people on here, but when school is session no one will be there. Heck, Big Surf is even closing after 41 years in business...

Water is worth its weight in gold in the desert!
Old     (wakeandsnow27)      Join Date: Jun 2004       12-07-2009, 11:50 AM Reply   

So Tempe Town Lake it is! Seems like it could generate some income being so close to ASU.
When you talk about water being expensive, you're referring to the cost to keep it full due to evaporation and other natural causes of it depleting?

I've frequented a private lake way out in surprise a homeowner built in his "backyard". If he can do it, and personally eat the costs involved to maintain it, I cant imagine a city or town couldnt while charging at the same time. And I know, there's more too it with liability insurance, employees, etc...

Do a search for water rights and water law in Arizona. The property that you talk about in Surprise probably has a grandfathered well. It is also a residential property which is a totally different animal.

Look up Hawley Lake, it might be possible up there, but it's pretty much pointless up in the cold...,+Hawley+Lake,+fires&cd=6&hl= en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Went to the Century marine sale and got a few things, a couple banners, shirts, ect. Wanted to walk walk away with their demo SAN 230. Great deal, but alas no funds. Also scheduled a service, so we will see if they fix my mysterious no start when warm issue.

Anyone looking for a good deal on a 2007 MasterCraft X2 (45,500 with warranty still), I just put mine up for sale. That price should beat most that are posting the same boat on the Internet. With a new baby here, we don't use the boat as much as we want to and selling it until the kids get a little older. We would like to be boat free for a few years until they get a little older.

The rain is helping to warm the water... It's not coming out of the bottom of the damn from the lake upstream...


I finally got my boat back from getting detailed and it came out great! If anyone wants to ride hit me up, we go EVERY Saturday.

Other than all debris this is the best time to ride!

Some of the "debris" is pretty fun to play on though...

I wish I could but I have to work this weekend and next then they are shipping us off to Saltlake city Utah to work will be up there most of the summer. Should get some good snowboarding in and once it warms up the lakes are really close and not crowded at all. So not a total loss will just miss all the people I ride with in Az.
