Just might have to use the old school method lifting I/O's and O/B's. That's a strap through the bow eye on the stem to the hook.

They list the lift ring spacing as 18' 7" in the specifications so its got to be there somewhere...

They say the construction is a mixture of fiberglass and carbon fiber, I would suspect that means they use carbon fiber strategically in the hull to reduce the number of layers of glass/thickness of resin to keep the weight down for the same strength. Don't know if any parts are 100% carbon fiber.

Nice youtube video that shows/ explains a lot but they don't mention the lifting rings. At first viewing I thought I saw two of them, one on either side of the windshield but watching it again I see those are the mounting points for the front bimini poles.   The boat is 20' LOA without the platform and you can see the stern rings in the transom so the bow lifting point has to be 17" short of the front. Perhaps Pete is right and they are using a bow sling of sorts??

Anyway, the video does showcase a lot of the new innovations and cool features:    video

36 is too old for wakeboarding I agree with him - after 35 one should concentrate on barefooting, slalom, trick, and hydrofoil. Most are harder than wakeboarding but none have beaten me up like wakeboarding. Maybe once a year now I will wakeboard with ballast and if I survive the session without adding to my repetitive brain injury total then I end up with knees that are swollen and killing me for a week .


Absolutely, basically everyone I knew that was a pretty serious wakeboarder has had knee/shoulder/back/ankle surgeries. Not worth it. Barefooting hurts sometimes for a short amount of time but otherwise is pretty easy on the body with all of the thrills.

Just dive into the water at 25 mph with a 4x8 strapped to your feet. Yay, you're wakeboard crashing.

Truth be told, he is pretty banged up and has really scaled back. Of course landing on his head one too many times snowboarding in a similar fashion didnt help either. In fact, I was surprised to see this video which just surfaced a day or so ago. He does seem to spend more of his time surfing now. (and in the winter kite boarding, or whatever you call it, out on the ice) Gotta give him credit tho. He is/was a pretty solid wakeboarder and could get more air off a unweighted ski boat wake than anyone I have ever seen.
