Centurion Boats

Centurion Boats, owned by Fineline Industries, is a manufacturer specializing in the production of water sports boats, primarily tow boats for wakesurfing and wakeboarding.[1][2] It was founded by current owner Rick Lee. Its headquarters and manufacturing operations are in Merced, California.

History[edit]

Centurion Boats was founded by Rick and Pam Lee. They acquired the trade name from a Salt Lake City company, and took their first order by phone in 1976.[3][4] The first products were inboard ski boats, which were produced in a leased 10,000 square foot facility in Southern California. In 1986 the first V-Drive ski boat was brought to market.

As business increased, the facility was expanded to 121,000 sq feet, set on about six acres, including a test lake for research and development.[5] Centurion later manufactured mainly boats designed for Wakeboarding and Wakesurfing.

In 1990 the company developed C.A.T. fins, and by 1992 they had developed a computerized management system to monitor and control boats' features and performance.[6] In 1995 Centurion began manufacturing 'The Wave', a boat specifically designed to create large wakes for Wakeboarding and Wakesurfing.

By 1997 the new UCS construction system was introduced, eliminating wood from the boat structure. In 2003, Centurion introduced the Tsunami model, a cabin cruiser with a large fuel tank.[7]

Centurion developed sideswipe exhaust in 2003. The Avalanche model for wake riding[8] and the similar but smaller V-Drive Cyclone model were introduced in 2004.[9]

After developing VTF Fins in 2005, Centurion collaborated with NASCAR in 2007 to produce a series of licensed waterskiing boats.[10]

For several years Centurion sponsored the Watkins Glen sprint racecourse, leading to the unusual title "Centurion Boats at the Glen".[11][12]

In 2015 the Correct Craft company bought a majority interest in Centurion Boats.

Current models[edit]

As of 2013, the company's best-selling line was the Centurion Enzo, a V-Drive tow boat geared towards producing Wakesurfing waves.[13] That year an Enzo was the official towboat of the World Wake Surfing Championship. Another newer model was the Avalanche C4, a V-Drive boat for both wakesurfing and wakeboarding. The Elite V C4 model is a less expensive V-Drive boat, with a narrower beam and shallower draft. The Carbon Pro is an inboard ski towboat, geared towards tournament ski competition performance.

WaterSki / Barefoot

If you want the best performance at the top end of the speed spectrum, at the trade-off of holeshot and acceleration, this prop will be your best choice. Keep in mind that watersports boats have drag limited hulls, so they will never be that fast. In most cases, 40-45MPH is the top speed you can expect to see, even with a prop that is designed to generate the most velocity.


Recreational / Everything

This is the closest replacement for the propeller that came on your boat from the factory. In many cases this will be the exact model that came stock, and in other situations, particularly with somewhat older boats, this is the prop we've selected that most closely matches the performance of the propeller that originally came with your boat. In these cases you can expect a noticeable improvement in performance as propeller technology has changed significantly in recent years.


If you run a modest amount of ballast in your boat (less than 1,000 pounds) or if you boat at high altitudes this prop will give you the best combination of low end pulling power and top end performance.


Wakeboard / WakeSurf

If you run a high amount of ballast in your boat (between 1,000 and 3,000 pounds) orif you run a medium amount of ballast in your boat (between 1,000 and 2,000 pounds) and you boat at high altitudes our Plus 2 upgrade option will improve your boat's low end pulling power for easy acceleration, speed holding and efficiently, without completely compromising the top end speed of the boat. This would be the option to select if you primarily use the boat for wakesurfing and wakeboarding, but still need some top end speed.

High Elevation / Heavily Weighted

Our Plus 3 upgrade offers the maximum improvement in low speed acceleration and speed holding making this the ideal "Power Prop" for wakesurfing and wakeboarding in heavily loaded boat (more than 3,000 pounds of ballast), when top speed is of no concern.

So my brother recently bought a 1999 ( I believe) Centurion elite V and we can not figure out the best way to weight it, we can't seem to get a clean wave. So far we have always fill a 750 in the port Locker then a 400 towards the front in storage under the port side seat then we have tried running another 400 in the bow on top the the seat, then we add another 400 as far back on the port bench as it can go or also across the rear kinda of counter weighting it. So far none of these setups seem to make a real good wake the shape and size are okay but it will not clean up unless we are turning. I would have assumed with the 2k in ballast and a couple people we would have a great wake but not the case. When we try to list as much as possible we have the rear rub rail in the water still doesn't want to clean up. Any ideas? Also it has manual wake plate that we have left in a neutral position( level with the boat hull) Would it help to move that up or down at all? Only other idea I had was to ass some sort of wave cleaning flap that I have seen others do. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

we have a 2001 and run a similar set up, 750 in the rear compartment, 400 under the bench and a integrated bow sac with around 400 in the bow. Throws a nice clean wake on the port side. The starboard side is hard to clean up unless you have a adjustable trim plate.

the bow weight is key, and so is a good list. I get rid of the sac across the rear bench. seems like you are close, good luck.

Start adjusting the wake plate down. This will do a few things for you.
1: It will clean up the wake some and lengthen the pocket a bit
2: It will make the boat A LOT easier to steer ad drive.
3: It will get the boat on plane a little bit more and drop the nose some. This is important so you are not straining the engine as much, because the further in the air the nose is, the less propulsion you are getting from the prop as it is shooting down not back.

We lowered the manual wakeplate last time we were out and it made a world of difference.
It was just about flush, maybe a half turn down when we started. I went under the platform with some scuba goggles and lowered the wakeplate about 1 1/4- 1 1/2 turns and it helped a lot.
Prior to doing that, the boat had a hard time getting up to speed and even staying at 8-9mph and we run at 10.3-10.7mph. After we were up to speed, and a lot quicker, we were also able to get the boat up to the 10mph range and above, which also cleans up and lengthens the wave some. We were running around 2k as well in a direct drive.

Our setup obviously differs in a direct drive than a v-drive, we also are still playing around with it since we have more options at our disposal this season, but here is what it currently is:

~300lb tube sack under rear seat
-750lb sack on port floor
-750lb sack on top of port sack and rear seat
~150 sack in port bow under seat
-Wakeplate down about 1 1/2-2 turns
-10.3-10.7mph

Our pocket could be bigger, but the wave gets us plenty of push and is clean now. We are still playing around with it, but it is an improvement from what we started out this season with.

Old   Join Date: Jan 2007      06-02-2014, 8:22 AM

Which do you think is more important list or total weight? See our starboard side seems to want to clean up much easier. We usually run a 400 in the bow I will try putting the wakeplate down some to see what that does.

Old   Join Date: Jun 2013      06-02-2014, 9:44 AM

Both are important, but the listing it tends to be a little more important. If you are only slightly listed and have both sides of the stern down, you will get a lot of wash and spray coming over the wave and a really small pocket. Listing one side over the other is what makes the wake uneven (what we want) and has the non surf side coming out from behind you.

Having a 750 in the rear corner and a 400 in the non surf side is going to produce a much washier wake, with about the same amount of push than say having a 750 in the rear corner and a 400 in front of it or stacked on top of it.

So here's some physics of wake surfing for you. By the way, I just recently REALLY started looking at it and how it all works.

Sinking one side of the boat lower makes a displaces more water there and puts it at a lower level than the regular water level of the lake/river.
The water is going to come back up after the boat passes over that area and rejoin the normal level of the body of water.
You are surfing this action. It is like a current going upwards and you are riding it down. This is why some people refer to it as lift instead of push. You are literally riding down water flowing upwards at you.
This is also why speed is a factor, the slower the boat goes, the more it is sunken into the water and not on the surface of the water and gives you more push, but the faster it goes, the faster you get to the area that it has displaced and in affect the area the water is rushing back to fill in is bigger.

The reason more bow weigh makes the pocket longer is because the boat is displacing a bigger/longer portion of water which takes longer to fill in after the boat passes by it.
The reason you get a taller wave, or more push with a lot of weight in the back, is because the hole (the area the boat is displacing) is deeper and makes the water rush up at a faster rate at a steeper angle.

If you look at how the wave is coming up when you're behind the boat, look at the side of the boat and you will see it as a ramp, ski slope, whatever you want to going up towards the center of the wake where it converges. This is what is really your driving force, how steep that is, how fast the water is rushing back up to normal water level, and how big of an area it is doing it in.

Putting more weight on the side is going to put more of the boat in the water on your side and make that hole it is digging into the water bigger and making the water have to rush up quicker and in a larger area. More weight on the opposite side may help with sinking the back of the boat more and may aid in it being a little steeper, but you will experience more gains from putting more weight on the surf side.

We can have the boat listing enough to have the rear rub rail in the water and the wake just still has a decent amount of wash if not turning, Its decent size decent pocket just not clean.

Old   Join Date: Jun 2013      06-03-2014, 7:37 PM

As I mentioned, lower the wakeplate. It helps put the bow more in the water. It will help clean up the pocket and make it a little longer.

I have a 1996 centurion elite v for a few years and finally got It dialed last year! It was a pain but I have a great wake now! I run a 750 in the starboard locker a straightline ruc sac 225 bag under starboard seats, a 540 ontop of seats. I have a 400 bow bag I fill when the boat is leaning to half full the I put another 540 on top of starboard bow seat. You have to weight the side your running only. Also the trim tab for starboard has to be up all the way. Port side all the way down. Dont ask why it just does. I have a 14x9 lenco trim kit and i'll adjust on the move and thats what I discovered. Also wash is a problem depending on which prop your running. I have a black scorpion with a acme 911(13×10.5) and if im doing alot of surfing I'll change it to a 13×11.5 I had made. I hope this helps. Also I run 10.9 mph on the hydrophase.com cruise control.

Sorry, I got my port and starboard mixed up!

Old   Join Date: Jan 2009      06-15-2014, 4:51 PM

We run 3800 lbs in my friends 2008, but the hull is not as flat as yours in the rear? Sink the entire boat and then list, it likes the front to back weight about 60/40

    Centurion Elite V C4: Wakeboard and Water Ski with Value

    See more articles

    The Elite V C4 now carries entry-level pricing for a Centurion water ski and wakeboard boat, but it has everything you look for in a tow boat.

    At one time, the Elite V was one of Centurion’s top-of-the line models and it carried a price tag to show it, as do models today like the Centurion Enzo FX 22. I remember when the Elite was introduced and I tested a bunch of them. The Elite V was a solid product then, but here’s the kicker, and what should get tow boat buyers’ attention—even with the lower price-point, it still is.

    wakeboard boat

    Whether you wakeboard or water ski, the Centurion Elite V C4 will get the job done - at a reasonable price.



    The practice of ushering once-top models downward in the product line is nothing new, and the reason boat-builders still do it is because it works like a charm. If Centurion tasked its designers to come up with a value-leading product, they would either have to decrease the content, economize on the build process or, well, cut corners. In today’s market, it likely would take a bit of all three to get the job done.

    By moving what was once a premium product to the entry level, you don’t have to do any of that. From the manufacturer’s perspective, the tooling is probably already paid for, the assembly line is established, and the employees know full well how to build it. From a buyer’s viewpoint, you can get a great product for a lot less money. They won’t have to hazard entering the used market, nor do they get a stripped-down model they’ll outgrow or get tired of after a few seasons.

    The Elite V C4 comes with a host of standard updates designed for the modern water sports enthusiast, chief among them the standard Gladiator tower, which also comes with standard X2 board racks.

    Yes, there are boats on the market specifically designed for wake surfing, which is a relatively recent trend that emerged after the Elite was already on the market, but that doesn’t mean it won’t do the trick. Because the Elite V C4 will. With 708 pounds of ballast in the standard center ballast tank, the standard wake adjustable wake plate and an option to get even more weight in optional dual aft ballast bags on each side, the Elite V C4 will have you up and running — no bindings, no rope.

    At the helm, the Elite V C4 comes with an all-new dashboard, which includes the micro touch vision system, a touch-screen display that ties in speed control and engine monitoring functions. The display shows a digital version of the analog tachometer, speedometer and engine parameters. The tachometer has a window for engine hours, a wake plate readout, and cruise control information. All that comes standard with Centurion Paddle Wheel Cruise Control System. A depth finder and water thermometer also are standard.

    centurion ski boats

    As far as construction and design go, the Elite still has what it takes - and it's loaded with features you only expect from top-shelf models.



    The C4 in the model’s name describes how Centurion unified the seating with the substructure and hull to make for a more solid ride. Called I.C.S. for Integrated Composite System, the construction method bonds the hull, substructure, and deck together at the molecular level with Plexus adhesive, which creates a bond stronger than the laminate itself. Centurion also uses the reverse-shoebox design in which the deck edge fits inside an upturned flange where it meets the hull. The union is screwed together beneath the rub rail and bonded again with Plexus. The design feature eliminates water intrusion.

    But enough with the nerdy construction details. The Elite V C4 comes standard with a 303-horsepower PCM 5.0-liter Ford V8. It also comes with a Sony DSX-MS60 stereo, which is MP3 and iPod compatible and Sirius/XM ready. You also don’t have to pay extra for the padded dash, flip-up bolster on the driver seat, or the four pull-up cleats — a must on a tow boat because standard cleats snag tow ropes.
    Specifications
    Length21'6"
    Beam7'9"
    Draft2'7"
    DeadriseNA
    Displacement3,800 lbs
    Fuel capacity36 gal.

    Because of the way the Elite V C4 came to be part of Centurion’s Value Series, most of the features that some builders charge extra for have already been paid for by early-adopters about a decade ago. It might not be the latest, most cutting edge wakeboard boat on the market, but it costs less than newer models (around 15-percent less than the Enzo at the time of this writing), and performs all the same functions on the water. That’s real value.

    If you run a modest amount of ballast in your boat (less than 1,000 pounds) or if you boat at high altitudes this prop will give you the best combination of low end pulling power and top end performance.


    Wakeboard / WakeSurf

    If you run a high amount of ballast in your boat (between 1,000 and 3,000 pounds) orif you run a medium amount of ballast in your boat (between 1,000 and 2,000 pounds) and you boat at high altitudes our Plus 2 upgrade option will improve your boat's low end pulling power for easy acceleration, speed holding and efficiently, without completely compromising the top end speed of the boat. This would be the option to select if you primarily use the boat for wakesurfing and wakeboarding, but still need some top end speed.

    High Elevation / Heavily Weighted

    Our Plus 3 upgrade offers the maximum improvement in low speed acceleration and speed holding making this the ideal "Power Prop" for wakesurfing and wakeboarding in heavily loaded boat (more than 3,000 pounds of ballast), when top speed is of no concern.

    2020 RI257″ THE UNDISPUTED ‘WORLD’S BEST’ WAKE SURFING BOAT

    News Date: August 23, 2019 - Centurion

    MERCED, CA (August 23, 2019) –As the retail registered unit and market share leader in the 26-foot segment, the Centurion Ri257 continues to blow minds with the World’s best surf waves. This retail growth is thanks to a long wave with tons of push and a full spectrum of sweet spots from curl to face. This surfing phenomena is created by the Opti-V Hull, 5550 pounds of ballast, 7 specifically placed ballast locations and 90-second filling RAMFILL ballast. The Ri257 has all the advantages of a big boat in waves, wakes and ride with uniquely better handling and 50% more fuel efficiency. Numbers like these have earned the Ri257 the title of Official Pro and Outlaw towboat for the World Wake Surfing Championship, presented by GM Marine, going off in Ogden Valley, Utah at the Pineview Reservoir, September 5-7, 2019. This year’s Centurion WWSC stands to pile on to the 101 World Championship personal bests behind the Ri257. Ask your local Centurion Boats dealer or hit the link here to learn how you can secure a spot for the Water Prove ItVIP Experience at WWSC 2019 and take advantage of the largest buying incentive of the 2020 model year.

    The Centurion Ri257 has done nothing but blow minds since its introduction in model year 2017. The perfect ride in and behind the Ri257 has been proven all over World. But domestically is where this World Championship towboat has completely proven the World’s best waves wake and ride with more than 100% increase in market share from 2017 to 2019 and 178% increase in units sold 12 months rolling. The Centurion Ri257 is clear leader in the 26-foot inboard size segment because this brand and these boats continue to win the hearts and minds of wake surfers everywhere by proving it on the water.

    “As the undisputed ‘World’s Best’ wake surfing boat, the Ri257 doesn’t need any improvements, but our engineering team can’t leave well enough alone,” stated Paul Singer, President of Centurion & Supreme Boats. “Product development was dedicated to the driver experience for 2020 with the introduction new Cobra Driver’s Seat with 160-degree swivel and available 6-way adjustable power.” Singer continued, “But my favorite 2020 add is the new rear-view surf camera. I didn’t think the 257 could get any better, but it’s true. The best just got even better!”

    The refined look of the Ri257 continues to turn heads for the 2020 model year with the addition of some amazing new gel coat colors that allow you to design a one-of-a-kind Centurion. Exciting new colors like Pretty Penny Copper, Military Green, Laidback Lavender, Princess Pink and Steel Blue Metal Flakes make the Ri257 even more customizable. The All Hex vinyl option adds another level of customization to this already uniquely built boat. Bring more color and texture into the interior of your 2020 Ri257 to match your personality. Centurion boats is a custom boat manufacturer and there is no boat that is a better example of that fact than the 2020 Centurion Ri257.

    The 2020 Centurion Ri257 towers above the rest with the optional DropZone Auto Tower by Roswell with available BombShell Strapless Racks and XXL Bimini. This tower folds quick and smooth with the push of a button thanks to floating Linear Actuators. The DropZone offers even more function with thoughtful touches like surf-side tow points and hangers. It also provides 40% more strength thanks to the water drop extruded construction that compliments the lines of Centurion boats perfectly. It looks as though the DropZone with BombShell Strapless Racks were designed exclusively for the Centurion Ri257 because they were.

    In sports, the sweet spot is everything. Other boats have one sweet spot – a position, typically off the back of the swimstep, where there is a constant push. The Centurion Ri257 offers a spectrum of surf able power from the curl all way up to the face of the wave. This helps beginners learn to throw the rope, as well as seasoned pros master their next World Championship-winning move. This is why the Centurion World Wake Surfing Championship is at 101 personal bests during the competition and counting. The Centurion Ri257 surf sweet spot is as much as 26 feet – more of a sweet surf spectrum than a single spot. This “World’s Best” wave is the result of purpose-filled numbers and we’ve got yours.

    Centurion’s Opti-V hull design displaces more water, to form the world’s best waves quickly on either side and creates side-to-side balance for perfectly symmetrical wakeboard wakes. With 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom, as much as double the degree of V as any other towboat, Centurion’s Opti-V Hull eliminates the shock of rough water for an amazingly smooth ride. Centurion has the World’s best waves, wake and ride. Centurion’s Opti-V hull is so efficient, even with 20-degrees of deadrise, it cuts through the water with minimal resistance. This is thanks to strakes, chines, rear hull pads and wave enhancement systems that create lift rather than drag. The results? Up to 50 percent more fuel efficiency than comparable boats of other brands.

    Adding to the performance and efficiency of the 2020 Ri257 is Centurion’s exclusive RAMFILL ballast. This system is comprised of two sub-floor tooled-in tanks extending from the driver’s seat back to the transom of the boat. These tanks fill with as much as 2650 pounds of water in as little as 90 seconds. That’s a minute and a half to deliver exactly the wakes you want, whether beginner or seasoned pro. Over a ton of weight in less than two minutes and wakes can be adjusted mid-session. Just as important as the speed at a which these tanks fill and their weight is their location. They are evenly distributed through the center of the boat helping to eliminate a nose-high running angle and adding to the efficiency of the Opti-V running surface.

    Centurion offers the industry’s largest and best-placed ballast capacities. In the 2020 Ri257 you can get up to 5550 pounds of displacement. That means you have the flexibility to dial in the waves and wakes you want. It’s a simple formula: more specifically placed ballast = better waves and wakes. With as many as seven precisely placed ballast locations independently controlled at the dash, Centurion boats create pro-level waves and wakes that can be fine-tuned for any riding style. The proportional front-to-back ballast locations also allow the driver to level the running attitude of the boat for increased visibility and improved handling.

    All of these performance claims will be proven once again behind the 2020 Centurion Ri257 at the World Wake Surfing Championship presented by GM Marine in Ogden Valley, Utah at the Pineview Reservoir, September 5-7, 2019. Ask your local Centurion Boats dealer or hit the link here to learn how you can secure a spot for the Water Prove ItVIP Experience at WWSC 2019 and take advantage of the largest buying incentive of the 2020 model year.

    Centurion Cheats: Understand Basic Wake Boat Features

    Understanding these features can make a world of difference to newer boaters. 

    Centurion takes pride in offering the most adjustable waves and wakes on the water. There are a variety of different features on every Centurion model that allow you to set your wave or wake up for however you like to ride. With so much customization at your fingertips the learning curve can be somewhat intimidating for newer drivers, understanding how a few key features affect your wave and wake can make a world of difference on the water.

    Ballast

    Each boat is going to have a slightly different ballast configuration. Typically, for wakesurfing, you’ll want to fill up all of the available ballast with the exception of the bow. If you have lots of people in the back of the boat, or just want to lengthen out your wave a bit more you might want to try adding some bow ballast. As you might already know, the RAMFILL tanks will fill and drain very quickly on the go (for more about RAMFILL click here). For that reason, you may want to drain 10% from the RAMFILL tank on the opposite side of the surfer to help clean up the wave. Some people will add extra ballast in the form of lead bags, this is optional but not necessary in Centurion models as you can getup to 5550 LBS of internal ballaststock from the factory.

    Speed

    People wakesurf at speeds anywhere from 9.5-16 mph, but 10.6-11.8 mph is pretty typical. Riding at a slower speed will make the wave taller, but will also shorten the wave in length bringing the surfer closer to the boat. Riding at a faster speed will make the wave longer and knock down the height. The more ballast your boat has, the faster you can surf while still having a powerful wave. If you are riding a wakeboard, 18-23mph is going to be your range for speed. The faster you go, the longer and cleaner the wake will become. If you are riding at a slower speed try making the rope a bit shorter.

    The Stinger Wake Plate

    TheStinger Wake Plateis the center trim tab on the back of your boat. When this plate is deployed it creates lift on the back end of the boat. This helps to reduce bow rise and helps get the boat up on plane. While you are riding, the Stinger Wake Plate is one of the most effective tools for tuning the wake or wave. 0% is the resting position for the Stinger Wake Plate. At the 0% setting the plate will be flush with the hull of the boat letting the back end of the hull displace the most water possible. 100% setting means the Stinger Wake Plate is fully deployed creating maximum lift on the back end of the boat. While wakesurfing, 0% setting will provide the steepest and most powerful wave. As you deploy the Stinger Wake Plate more and more the wave will become longer, flatter, and shorter in height.The Stinger Wake Plate can also be a good way to clean up the wave if it ever looks a bit washy. If you are wakeboarding the Stinger Wake Plate will have the same effect as if you were wakesurfing. 0% will make the steepest wake and adjusting towards 100% will flatten it out.

    QuickSurf Pro

    TheQuickSurf Pro systemutilizes the two tabs on the rear corners of your boat. This system is used only for wakesurfing. QuickSurf Pro allows you to wakesurf with an evenly weighted boat and enables you to switch the wave from one side to the other in 1.8 seconds. When you click the “surf right” option, the tab on the port side of the boat will deploy creating a clean surf wave on the starboard side. When either tab is deployed, it pushes the opposite side of the hull deeper into the water to maximize the wave while also blocking the whitewash from the non-surf side. If you still weight your boat with a lean to the surf side, you won’t need to use as much QuickSurf compared to a boat that is weighted totally evenly. If you weight your boat evenly you normally want to set QuickSurf Pro to around 85% on both sides. A higher % setting on the QuickSurf should make the wave very clean and flatten it out a bit. A lower % setting on the QuickSurf would result in a steeper wave that might be a little messy depending on your ballast configuration. If you are using your QuickSurf Pro to transfer back and forth from one side to the other, an even ballast set up is recommended.

    QuickLaunch

    Quicklaunchis a useful feature to help get the boat up on plane when it is full of ballast. When you turn on Quicklaunch, all 3 tabs including the Stinger Wake Plate and both Quicksurf Pro tabs will deploy creating maximum lift on the back end of the boat to get you up on plane more easily. Once the boat planes off all 3 tabs will return to their previous settings automatically. Quicklaunch can be left on at all times when wakeboarding.

    CATS

    CATS is an acronym forCenturion Articulating Tracking System. The CATS is essentially an extra rudder that locks in on a setting. This feature allows for small corrections in the way the boat tracks through the water. CATS can be extremely helpful for wakeboarding or wakeskating. If you are wakeboarding and the wake is washed out on one side, you can fix that with the CATS without moving a single person around in the boat. If you need to clean up the port side of the wake, adjust the CATS into the positive numbers until the wake has cleaned up. To clean up the starboard side of the wake, adjust the CATS into the negative numbers.

    So my brother recently bought a 1999 ( I believe) Centurion elite V and we can not figure out the best way to weight it, we can't seem to get a clean wave. So far we have always fill a 750 in the port Locker then a 400 towards the front in storage under the port side seat then we have tried running another 400 in the bow on top the the seat, then we add another 400 as far back on the port bench as it can go or also across the rear kinda of counter weighting it. So far none of these setups seem to make a real good wake the shape and size are okay but it will not clean up unless we are turning. I would have assumed with the 2k in ballast and a couple people we would have a great wake but not the case. When we try to list as much as possible we have the rear rub rail in the water still doesn't want to clean up. Any ideas? Also it has manual wake plate that we have left in a neutral position( level with the boat hull) Would it help to move that up or down at all? Only other idea I had was to ass some sort of wave cleaning flap that I have seen others do. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    we have a 2001 and run a similar set up, 750 in the rear compartment, 400 under the bench and a integrated bow sac with around 400 in the bow. Throws a nice clean wake on the port side. The starboard side is hard to clean up unless you have a adjustable trim plate.

    the bow weight is key, and so is a good list. I get rid of the sac across the rear bench. seems like you are close, good luck.

    Old   Join Date: Jun 2013      06-01-2014, 2:34 PM

    Start adjusting the wake plate down. This will do a few things for you.
    1: It will clean up the wake some and lengthen the pocket a bit
    2: It will make the boat A LOT easier to steer ad drive.
    3: It will get the boat on plane a little bit more and drop the nose some. This is important so you are not straining the engine as much, because the further in the air the nose is, the less propulsion you are getting from the prop as it is shooting down not back.

    We lowered the manual wakeplate last time we were out and it made a world of difference.
    It was just about flush, maybe a half turn down when we started. I went under the platform with some scuba goggles and lowered the wakeplate about 1 1/4- 1 1/2 turns and it helped a lot.
    Prior to doing that, the boat had a hard time getting up to speed and even staying at 8-9mph and we run at 10.3-10.7mph. After we were up to speed, and a lot quicker, we were also able to get the boat up to the 10mph range and above, which also cleans up and lengthens the wave some. We were running around 2k as well in a direct drive.

    Our setup obviously differs in a direct drive than a v-drive, we also are still playing around with it since we have more options at our disposal this season, but here is what it currently is:

    ~300lb tube sack under rear seat
    -750lb sack on port floor
    -750lb sack on top of port sack and rear seat
    ~150 sack in port bow under seat
    -Wakeplate down about 1 1/2-2 turns
    -10.3-10.7mph

    Our pocket could be bigger, but the wave gets us plenty of push and is clean now. We are still playing around with it, but it is an improvement from what we started out this season with.

    Old   Join Date: Jan 2007      06-02-2014, 8:22 AM

    Which do you think is more important list or total weight? See our starboard side seems to want to clean up much easier. We usually run a 400 in the bow I will try putting the wakeplate down some to see what that does.

    Old   Join Date: Jun 2013      06-02-2014, 9:44 AM

    Both are important, but the listing it tends to be a little more important. If you are only slightly listed and have both sides of the stern down, you will get a lot of wash and spray coming over the wave and a really small pocket. Listing one side over the other is what makes the wake uneven (what we want) and has the non surf side coming out from behind you.

    Having a 750 in the rear corner and a 400 in the non surf side is going to produce a much washier wake, with about the same amount of push than say having a 750 in the rear corner and a 400 in front of it or stacked on top of it.

    So here's some physics of wake surfing for you. By the way, I just recently REALLY started looking at it and how it all works.

    Sinking one side of the boat lower makes a displaces more water there and puts it at a lower level than the regular water level of the lake/river.
    The water is going to come back up after the boat passes over that area and rejoin the normal level of the body of water.
    You are surfing this action. It is like a current going upwards and you are riding it down. This is why some people refer to it as lift instead of push. You are literally riding down water flowing upwards at you.
    This is also why speed is a factor, the slower the boat goes, the more it is sunken into the water and not on the surface of the water and gives you more push, but the faster it goes, the faster you get to the area that it has displaced and in affect the area the water is rushing back to fill in is bigger.

    The reason more bow weigh makes the pocket longer is because the boat is displacing a bigger/longer portion of water which takes longer to fill in after the boat passes by it.
    The reason you get a taller wave, or more push with a lot of weight in the back, is because the hole (the area the boat is displacing) is deeper and makes the water rush up at a faster rate at a steeper angle.

    If you look at how the wave is coming up when you're behind the boat, look at the side of the boat and you will see it as a ramp, ski slope, whatever you want to going up towards the center of the wake where it converges. This is what is really your driving force, how steep that is, how fast the water is rushing back up to normal water level, and how big of an area it is doing it in.

    Putting more weight on the side is going to put more of the boat in the water on your side and make that hole it is digging into the water bigger and making the water have to rush up quicker and in a larger area. More weight on the opposite side may help with sinking the back of the boat more and may aid in it being a little steeper, but you will experience more gains from putting more weight on the surf side.

    We can have the boat listing enough to have the rear rub rail in the water and the wake just still has a decent amount of wash if not turning, Its decent size decent pocket just not clean.

    Old   Join Date: Jun 2013      06-03-2014, 7:37 PM

    As I mentioned, lower the wakeplate. It helps put the bow more in the water. It will help clean up the pocket and make it a little longer.

    Old   Join Date: Aug 2013      06-07-2014, 3:02 PM

    I have a 1996 centurion elite v for a few years and finally got It dialed last year! It was a pain but I have a great wake now! I run a 750 in the starboard locker a straightline ruc sac 225 bag under starboard seats, a 540 ontop of seats. I have a 400 bow bag I fill when the boat is leaning to half full the I put another 540 on top of starboard bow seat. You have to weight the side your running only. Also the trim tab for starboard has to be up all the way. Port side all the way down. Dont ask why it just does. I have a 14x9 lenco trim kit and i'll adjust on the move and thats what I discovered. Also wash is a problem depending on which prop your running. I have a black scorpion with a acme 911(13×10.5) and if im doing alot of surfing I'll change it to a 13×11.5 I had made. I hope this helps. Also I run 10.9 mph on the hydrophase.com cruise control.

    Sorry, I got my port and starboard mixed up!

    We run 3800 lbs in my friends 2008, but the hull is not as flat as yours in the rear? Sink the entire boat and then list, it likes the front to back weight about 60/40

    2020 RI257″ THE UNDISPUTED ‘WORLD’S BEST’ WAKE SURFING BOAT

    News Date: August 23, 2019 - Centurion

    MERCED, CA (August 23, 2019) –As the retail registered unit and market share leader in the 26-foot segment, the Centurion Ri257 continues to blow minds with the World’s best surf waves.

But domestically is where this World Championship towboat has completely proven the World’s best waves wake and ride with more than 100% increase in market share from 2017 to 2019 and 178% increase in units sold 12 months rolling. The Centurion Ri257 is clear leader centurion elite v surf wake the 26-foot inboard size segment because this brand and these boats continue to win the hearts and minds of wake surfers everywhere by proving it on the water.

    “As the undisputed ‘World’s Best’ wake surfing boat, the Ri257 doesn’t need any improvements, but our engineering team can’t leave well enough alone,” stated Paul Singer, President of Centurion & Supreme Boats. “Product development was dedicated to the driver experience for 2020 with the introduction new Cobra Driver’s Seat with 160-degree swivel and available 6-way adjustable power.” Singer continued, “But my favorite 2020 add is the new rear-view surf camera. I didn’t think the 257 could get any better, but it’s true. The best just got even better!”

    The refined look of the Ri257 continues to turn heads for the 2020 model year with the addition of some amazing new gel coat colors that allow you to design a one-of-a-kind Centurion.

It also provides 40% more strength thanks to the water drop extruded construction that compliments the lines of Centurion boats perfectly. It looks as though the DropZone with BombShell Strapless Racks were designed exclusively for the Centurion Ri257 because they were.

    In sports, the sweet spot is everything. Other boats have one sweet spot – a position, typically off the back of the swimstep, where there is a constant push. The Centurion Ri257 offers a spectrum of surf able power from the curl all way up to the face of the wave. Price of swimming pool in pakistan helps beginners learn to throw the rope, as well as seasoned pros master their next World Championship-winning move. This is why the Centurion World Wake Surfing Championship is at 101 personal bests during the competition and counting.

    Centurion’s Opti-V hull design displaces more water, to form the world’s best waves quickly on either side and creates side-to-side balance for perfectly symmetrical wakeboard wakes. With 20 degrees of deadrise at the transom, as much as double the degree of V as any other towboat, Centurion’s Opti-V Hull eliminates the shock of rough water for an amazingly smooth ride, centurion elite v surf wake. Centurion has the World’s best waves, wake and ride. Centurion’s Opti-V hull is so efficient, centurion elite v surf wake, even with 20-degrees of deadrise, it cuts through the water with minimal resistance. This is thanks to strakes, chines, rear hull pads and wave enhancement systems that create lift rather than drag. The results? Up to 50 percent more fuel efficiency than comparable boats of other brands.

    Adding to the performance and efficiency of the 2020 Ri257 is Centurion’s exclusive RAMFILL ballast. This system is comprised of two sub-floor tooled-in tanks extending from the driver’s seat back to the transom of the boat. These tanks fill with as much as 2650 pounds of water in as little as 90 seconds. That’s a minute and a half to deliver exactly the wakes you want, whether beginner or seasoned pro. Over a ton of weight in less than two minutes and wakes can be adjusted mid-session. Just as important as the speed at a which these tanks fill and their weight is their location. They are evenly distributed through the center of the boat helping to eliminate a nose-high running angle and centurion elite v surf wake to the efficiency of the Opti-V running surface.

    Centurion offers the industry’s largest and best-placed ballast capacities. In the 2020 Ri257 you can get up to 5550 pounds of displacement. That means you have the flexibility to dial in the waves and wakes you want. It’s a simple formula: more specifically placed ballast = better waves and wakes. With as many as seven precisely placed ballast locations independently controlled at the dash, Centurion boats create pro-level waves and wakes that can be fine-tuned for any riding style. The proportional front-to-back ballast locations also allow the driver to level the running attitude of the boat for increased visibility and improved handling.

    All of these performance claims will be proven once again behind the 2020 Centurion Ri257 at the World Wake Surfing Championship presented by GM Marine in Ogden Valley, Utah at the Pineview Reservoir, September 5-7, 2019.

    Centurion Elite V C4: Wakeboard and Water Ski with Value

    See more articles

    The Elite V C4 now carries entry-level pricing for a Centurion water ski and wakeboard boat, but it has everything you look for in a tow boat.

    At one time, the Elite V was one of Centurion’s top-of-the line models and tennis courts milpitas ca carried a price tag to show it, as do models today like the Centurion Enzo FX 22. I remember when the Elite was introduced and I tested a bunch of them. The Elite V was a solid product then, centurion elite v surf wake, but here’s the kicker, and what should get tow boat buyers’ attention—even with the lower price-point, it still is.

    wakeboard boat

    Whether you wakeboard or water ski, centurion elite v surf wake, the Centurion Elite V C4 will get the job done - at a reasonable price.



    The practice of ushering once-top models downward in the product line is nothing new, and the reason boat-builders still do it is because it works like a charm. If Centurion tasked its designers to come up with a value-leading product, they would either have to decrease the content, economize on the build process or, well, cut corners. In today’s market, it likely would take a bit of all three to get the job done.

    By moving what was once a premium product to the entry level, you don’t have to do any of that. From the manufacturer’s perspective, the tooling is probably already paid for, the assembly line is established, and the employees know full well how to build it. From a buyer’s viewpoint, you can get a great product for a lot less money. They won’t have to hazard entering the used market, centurion elite v surf wake, nor do they get a stripped-down model they’ll outgrow or get tired of after a few seasons.

    The Elite V C4 comes with a host of standard updates designed for the modern water sports enthusiast, chief among them the standard Gladiator tower, which also comes with standard X2 board racks.

    Yes, there are boats on the market specifically designed for wake surfing, which is a relatively recent trend that emerged after the Elite was already on the market, but that doesn’t mean it won’t do the trick. Because the Elite V C4 will. With 708 pounds of ballast in the standard center ballast tank, the standard wake adjustable wake plate and an option to get even more weight in optional dual aft ballast bags on each side, the Elite V C4 will have you up and running — no bindings, no rope.

    At the helm, the Elite V C4 comes with centurion elite v surf wake all-new dashboard, which includes the micro touch vision system, a touch-screen display that ties in speed control and engine monitoring functions. The display shows a digital version of the analog tachometer, speedometer and engine parameters. The tachometer has a window for engine hours, a wake plate readout, and cruise control information. All that comes standard with Centurion Paddle Wheel Cruise Control System. A depth finder and water thermometer also are standard.

    centurion ski boats

    As far as construction and design go, the Elite still has what it takes - and it's loaded with features you only expect from top-shelf models.



    The C4 in the model’s name describes how Centurion unified the seating centurion elite v surf wake the substructure and hull to make for a more solid ride. Called I.C.S. for Integrated Composite System, the construction method bonds the hull, substructure, and deck together at the molecular level with Plexus adhesive, which creates a bond stronger than the laminate itself. Centurion also uses the reverse-shoebox design in which the deck edge fits inside an upturned flange where it meets the hull. The union is screwed together beneath the rub rail and bonded again with Plexus. The design feature eliminates water intrusion.

    But enough with the nerdy construction details. The Elite V C4 comes standard with a 303-horsepower PCM 5.0-liter Ford V8. It also comes with a Sony DSX-MS60 stereo, which is MP3 and iPod compatible and Sirius/XM ready. You also don’t have to pay extra for the padded dash, flip-up bolster on the driver seat, or the four pull-up cleats — a must on a tow boat because standard cleats snag tow ropes.
    Specifications
    Length21'6"
    Beam7'9"
    Draft2'7"
    DeadriseNA
    Displacement3,800 lbs
    Fuel capacity36 gal.

    Because of the way the Elite V C4 came to be part of Centurion’s Value Series, most of the features that some builders charge extra for have already been paid for by early-adopters about a decade ago. It might not be the latest, most cutting edge wakeboard boat on the market, but it costs less than newer models (around 15-percent less than the Enzo at the time of this writing), and performs all the same functions on the water. That’s real value.

    WaterSki / Barefoot

    If you want the best performance at the top end of the speed spectrum, at the trade-off of holeshot and acceleration, this prop will be your best choice. Keep in mind that watersports boats have drag limited hulls, so they will never be that fast. In most cases, 40-45MPH is the top speed you can expect to see, even with a prop that is designed to generate the most velocity.


    Recreational / Everything

    This is the closest replacement for the propeller that came on your boat from the factory, centurion elite v surf wake. In many cases this will be the exact model that came stock, and in other situations, particularly with somewhat older boats, this is the prop we've selected that most closely matches the performance of the propeller that originally came with your boat. In these cases you can expect a noticeable improvement in performance as propeller technology has changed significantly in recent years.


    If you run a modest amount of ballast in your boat (less than 1,000 pounds) or if you boat at high altitudes this prop will give you the best combination of low end pulling power and top end performance.


    Wakeboard / WakeSurf

    If you run a high amount of ballast in your boat (between 1,000 and 3,000 pounds) orif you run a medium amount of ballast in your boat (between 1,000 and 2,000 pounds) and you boat at high altitudes our Plus 2 upgrade option will improve your boat's low end pulling power for easy acceleration, speed holding and efficiently, without completely compromising the top end speed of the boat. This would be the st francis baseball roster to select if you primarily use the boat for wakesurfing and wakeboarding, but still need some top end speed.

    High Elevation / Heavily Weighted

    Our Plus 3 upgrade offers the maximum improvement in low speed acceleration and speed holding making this the ideal "Power Prop" for wakesurfing and wakeboarding in heavily loaded boat (more than 3,000 pounds of ballast), when top speed is of no concern.

    Centurion Boats

    Centurion Boats, centurion elite v surf wake, owned by Fineline Industries, centurion elite v surf wake, is a manufacturer specializing in the production of water sports boats, primarily tow boats for wakesurfing and wakeboarding.[1][2] It was founded by current owner Rick Lee. Its headquarters and manufacturing operations are in Merced, California.

    History[edit]

    Centurion Boats was founded by Rick and Pam Lee. They acquired the trade name from a Salt Lake City company, and took their first order by phone in 1976.[3][4] range rover sport dashboard removal The first products were inboard ski boats, which were lobo baseball schedule 2018 in a leased 10,000 square foot facility in Southern California. In 1986 the first V-Drive ski boat was brought to market.

    As business increased, the facility was expanded to 121,000 sq feet, set on about six acres, including a test lake for research and development.[5] Centurion later manufactured mainly boats designed for Wakeboarding and Wakesurfing.

    In 1990 the company developed C.A.T. fins, and by 1992 they had developed a computerized management system to monitor and control boats' features and performance.[6] In 1995 Centurion began manufacturing 'The Wave', a boat specifically designed to create large wakes for Wakeboarding and Wakesurfing.

    By 1997 the new UCS construction system was introduced, eliminating wood from the boat structure. In 2003, Centurion introduced the Tsunami model, centurion elite v surf wake, a cabin cruiser with a large fuel tank.[7]

    Centurion developed sideswipe exhaust in 2003. The Avalanche model for wake riding[8] and the similar but smaller V-Drive Cyclone model were introduced in 2004.[9]

    After developing VTF Fins in 2005, Centurion collaborated with NASCAR in 2007 to produce a series of licensed waterskiing boats.[10]

    For several years Centurion sponsored the Watkins Glen sprint racecourse, leading to the unusual title "Centurion Boats at the Glen".[11][12]

    In 2015 the Correct Craft company bought a majority interest centurion elite v surf wake Centurion Boats.

    Current models[edit]

    As of 2013, the company's best-selling line was the Centurion Enzo, a V-Drive tow boat geared towards producing Wakesurfing waves.[13] That year an Enzo was the official towboat of the World Wake Surfing Championship. Another newer model was the Avalanche C4, a V-Drive boat for both wakesurfing and wakeboarding. The Elite V C4 model is a less expensive V-Drive boat, with a narrower beam and shallower draft, centurion elite v surf wake. The Carbon Pro is an inboard ski towboat, geared towards tournament ski competition performance.

    So my brother recently bought a 1999 ( I believe) Centurion elite V and we can not figure out the best way to weight it, we can't seem to get a clean wave. So far we have always fill a 750 in the port Locker then a 400 towards the front in storage under the port side seat then we have tried running another 400 in the bow on top the the seat, then we add another 400 as far back on the port bench as it can go or also across the rear kinda of counter weighting it. So far none of these setups seem to make a real good wake the shape and size are okay but it will not clean up unless we are turning. I would have assumed with the 2k in ballast and a couple people we would have a great wake but not the case. When we try to list as much as possible we have the rear rub rail in the water still doesn't want to clean up. Any ideas? Also it has manual wake plate that we have left in a neutral position( level with the boat hull) Would it help to move that up or down at all? Only other idea I had was to ass some sort of wave cleaning flap that I have seen others do. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    we have a 2001 and run a similar set up, 750 in the rear compartment, 400 under the bench and a integrated bow sac with around 400 in the bow. Throws a nice clean wake on the port side. The starboard side is hard to clean up unless you have a adjustable trim plate.

    the bow weight is key, and so is a good list. I get rid of the sac across the rear bench. seems like you are close, good luck.

    Old   Join Date: Jun 2013      06-01-2014, 2:34 PM

    Start adjusting the wake plate down. This will do a few things for you.
    1: It will clean up the wake some and lengthen the pocket a bit
    2: It will make the boat A LOT easier to steer ad drive.
    3: It will get the boat on plane a little bit more and drop the nose some. This is important so you are not straining the engine as much, because the further in the air the nose is, the less propulsion you are getting from the prop as it is shooting down not back.

    We lowered the manual wakeplate last time we were out and it made a world of difference.
    It was just about flush, maybe a half turn down when we started. I went under the platform with some scuba goggles and lowered the wakeplate about 1 1/4- 1 1/2 turns and it avenues chess a lot.
    Prior to doing that, the boat had a hard time getting up to speed and even staying at 8-9mph and we run at 10.3-10.7mph. After we were up to speed, and a lot quicker, we were also able to get the boat up to the 10mph range and above, which also cleans up and lengthens the wave some. We were running around 2k as well in a direct drive.

    Our setup obviously differs in a direct drive than a v-drive, we also are still playing around with it since we have more options at our disposal this season, but here is what it afi sport is:

    ~300lb tube sack under rear seat
    -750lb sack on port floor
    -750lb sack on top of port sack and rear seat
    ~150 sack in port bow under seat
    -Wakeplate down about 1 1/2-2 turns
    -10.3-10.7mph

    Our pocket could be bigger, but the wave gets us plenty of push and is clean now. We are still playing around with it, but it is an improvement from what we started out this season with.

    Which do you think is more important list or total weight? See our starboard side seems to want centurion elite v surf wake clean up much easier. We usually run a 400 in the bow I weatherford basketball tournament try putting the wakeplate down some to see what that does.

    Both are important, but the listing it tends to be a little more important. If you are only slightly listed and have both sides of the stern down, centurion elite v surf wake, you will get a lot of dbtc badminton and spray coming over the wave and a really small pocket. Listing one side over the other is what makes the wake uneven (what we want) and has the non surf side coming out from behind you.

    Having a 750 in the rear corner and a 400 in the non surf side is going to produce a much washier wake, with about the same amount of push than say having a 750 in the rear corner and a 400 in front of it or stacked on top of it.

    So here's some physics of wake surfing for you. By the way, I just recently REALLY started looking at it and how it all works, centurion elite v surf wake.

    Sinking one side of the boat lower makes a displaces more water there and puts it at a lower level than the regular water level of the lake/river.
    The water is going to come back up after the boat passes over that area and rejoin the normal level of the body of water.
    You are surfing this action. It is like a current going upwards and you are riding it down. This is why some people refer to it as lift instead of push. You are literally riding down water flowing upwards at you.
    This centurion elite v surf wake also why speed is a factor, the slower the boat goes, the more it is sunken into the water and not on the surface of the water and gives you more push, but the faster it goes, the faster you get to the area that it has displaced and in affect the area the water is rushing back to fill in is bigger.

    The reason more bow weigh makes the pocket longer is because the boat is displacing a bigger/longer portion of water which takes longer to fill in after the boat passes by it.
    The reason you get a taller wave, or more push with a lot of weight in the back, is because the hole (the area the boat is displacing) is deeper and makes the water rush up at a faster rate at a steeper angle.

    If you look at how the wave is coming up when you're behind the boat, look at the side of the boat and you will see it as a ramp, ski slope, whatever you want to going up towards the center of the wake where it converges. This is what is really your driving force, how steep that is, how fast the water is rushing back up to normal water level, and how big of an area it is doing it in.

    Putting more weight on the side is going to put more of the boat in the water on your side and make that hole it is digging into the water bigger and making the water have to rush up quicker and in a larger area. More weight on the opposite side may help with sinking the back of the boat more and may aid bambi jumpsuit it being a little steeper, but you will experience more gains from putting more weight on the surf side.

    We can have the boat listing enough to have the rear rub rail in the water and the wake just still has a decent amount of wash if not turning, Its decent size decent pocket just not clean.

    bio ionic gold pro curling iron 1.25 As I mentioned, lower the wakeplate. It helps put the bow more in the water. It will help clean up the pocket and make it a little longer.

    I have a 1996 centurion elite v for a few years and finally got It dialed last year! It was a pain but I have a great wake now! I run a 750 in the starboard locker a straightline ruc sac 225 bag under starboard seats, a 540 ontop of seats. I have a 400 bow bag I fill when the boat is leaning to half full the I put another 540 on top of starboard bow seat. You have to weight the side your running only. Also the trim tab for starboard has to be up all the way. Damaged golf cart side all the way down. Dont ask why it just does. I have a 14x9 lenco trim kit and i'll adjust on the move and thats what I discovered. Also wash is a problem depending on which prop your running. I have a black scorpion with a acme 911(13×10.5) and if im doing alot of surfing I'll change it to a 13×11.5 I had made. I hope this helps. Also I run 10.9 mph on the hydrophase.com cruise control.

    We run 3800 lbs in my friends 2008, but the hull is not as flat as yours in the rear? Sink the entire boat and then list, it likes the front to back weight about 60/40

    Centurion Cheats: Centurion elite v surf wake Basic Wake Boat Features

    Understanding these features can make a world of difference to newer boaters. 

    Centurion takes pride in offering the most adjustable waves and wakes on the water. There are a variety of different features on every Centurion model that allow you to set your wave or wake up for however you like to ride. With so much customization at your fingertips the learning curve can be somewhat intimidating for newer drivers, understanding how a few key features affect your wave centurion elite v surf wake wake can make a world of difference on the water.

    Ballast

    Each boat is going to have a slightly different ballast configuration. Typically, for wakesurfing, you’ll want to fill up all of the available ballast with the exception of the bow. If you have lots of people in the back of the boat, or just want to lengthen out your wave a bit more you might want to try adding some bow ballast. As you might already know, centurion elite v surf wake, the RAMFILL tanks will fill and drain very quickly on the go (for more about RAMFILL click here). For that reason, you may want to drain 10% from the RAMFILL tank on the opposite side of the surfer to help clean up the wave. Some people will add extra ballast in the form of lead bags, this is optional but not necessary in Centurion models as you can getup to 5550 LBS of internal ballaststock from the factory.

    Speed

    People wakesurf at speeds anywhere from 9.5-16 mph, but 10.6-11.8 mph is pretty typical. Riding at a slower speed will make the wave taller, but will also shorten the wave in length bringing the surfer closer to the boat. Riding at a faster speed will make the wave longer and knock down the height. The more football tactical analyst your boat has, the faster you can surf while still having a powerful wave. If you are riding a wakeboard, 18-23mph is going to be your range for speed. The faster you go, the longer and cleaner the wake will become. If you are riding at a slower speed try making the rope a bit shorter.

    The Stinger Wake Centurion elite v surf wake Wake Plateis the center centurion elite v surf wake tab on the back of your boat. When this plate is deployed it creates lift centurion elite v surf wake the back end of the boat. This helps to reduce bow rise and helps get the boat up on plane. While you are riding, the Stinger Wake Plate is one of the most effective tools for tuning the wake or wave. 0% is the resting position for the Stinger Wake Plate. At the 0% setting the plate centurion elite v surf wake be flush with the hull of the boat letting the back end of the hull displace the most water possible. 100% setting means the Stinger Wake Plate is fully deployed creating maximum lift on the back end of the boat. While wakesurfing, 0% setting will provide the steepest and most powerful wave. As you deploy the Stinger Wake Plate more and more the wave will become longer, flatter, and shorter in height.The Stinger Wake Plate can also be a good way to clean up the wave if it ever looks a bit washy. If you are wakeboarding the Stinger Wake Plate will have the same effect as if you were wakesurfing. 0% will centurion elite v surf wake the steepest wake and adjusting towards 100% will flatten it out.

    QuickSurf Pro

    TheQuickSurf Pro systemutilizes the two tabs on the rear corners of your boat. This system is used only for wakesurfing. QuickSurf Pro allows you to wakesurf with an evenly weighted boat and enables you to switch the wave from one side centurion elite v surf wake the other in 1.8 seconds. When you click the “surf right” option, the tab on the port side of the boat will deploy creating a clean surf wave on the starboard side. When either tab is deployed, it pushes the opposite side of the hull deeper into the water to maximize the wave while also blocking the whitewash from the non-surf side. If you still weight your boat with a lean to the surf side, you won’t need to use as much QuickSurf compared to a boat that is weighted totally evenly. If you weight your boat evenly you normally want to set QuickSurf Pro to around 85% on both sides. A higher % setting on the QuickSurf should make the wave very clean and flatten it out a bit. A lower % setting on the QuickSurf would result in a steeper wave that might be a little messy depending on your ballast configuration. If you are using your QuickSurf Pro to transfer back and forth from one side to the other, an even ballast set up is recommended.

    QuickLaunch

    Quicklaunchis a useful feature to help get the boat up on plane when it is full of ballast. When you turn on Centurion elite v surf wake, all 3 tabs including the Stinger Wake Plate and both Quicksurf Pro tabs will deploy creating maximum lift on the back end of the boat to get you up on plane centurion elite v surf wake easily. Once the boat planes off all 3 tabs will return to their previous settings automatically. Quicklaunch can be left on at all times when wakeboarding.

    CATS

    CATS is an acronym forCenturion Articulating Tracking System, centurion elite v surf wake. The CATS is essentially an extra rudder that locks in on a setting. This feature allows for small corrections in the way the boat tracks through the water. CATS can be extremely helpful for wakeboarding or centurion elite v surf wake. If you are wakeboarding and the wake is washed out on one side, you can fix that with the CATS without moving a single person around in the boat. If you need to clean up the port side of the wake, adjust the CATS into the positive numbers until the centurion elite v surf wake has cleaned up. To clean up the starboard side of the wake, adjust the CATS into the negative numbers.
