hey guys I,m lookin at 2004 Centurion cyclone over here in aussie for 45k has any one ridden behind one of these boats and got any feedback on them just noticed it has a deep v type hull rather than the more shellow v type hull that most wake boats have. i think the price is pretty sweet and the boat is tidy just not sure about the wake and thats what its all about!
cheers reggie

Take a look on wake.com.au boat forums.
There is plenty of info of on different boats there. Or being a US boat Wakeworld might have some posts about them. Also there is the Centurion Crew forums.

Hi Keith hows it going in wanganui hopefully your getting out on the water lots. Had a look on a couple of forums ,found a couple of useful posts found that they need a good bit of weight up the front other wise the wake gets a little peaky if its not evenly weighted. They say to weight the back to get the size wake you need then the front to get it to ramp nicely otherwise its like hitting a big brick wall. I am going to go out for a ride on it on the weekend and weight it up and see what its like so hope fully it goes well! How are you anyway last time i heard from you you where doing an engine rebuild on your boat? i still have got my old boat back in nz ended up sorting out the ballast and getting all the parts to convert it to a v drive but then ended up over here working , but on the up side making much better money here so can get a sweet boat lol hope all is well with you
cheers reggie

Yeah man all good.
'New' engine in the boat and running well. Should hit 10hrs running this week.
Plenty warm here and the river is mint so we're in there a couple of times a week.

The weight sounds pretty standard. Most boats are like that apart from Malibu's where you end up putting more weight in the back to stand the wake up Smile We just weight our boat with as much in the front before you start dipping the nose every time you stop. Otherwise it gets wet with such low freeboard and low windscreen.
