Went to the boat show in Raleigh today. Dad fell in love with a white and metal flake 2012 Super Air Nautique 230 Team Edition. Considered trading in the '06 Air Nautiqe 211 Team.




Also had a 2011 230 Team in the same color scheme as our 211

Yea ours is the 211 (crossover) so it can adjust the wake for boarding or skiing. Its awesome to wakeboard behind (and high speed tubing). But its more fun to drive .

Washed it and Simple Green'd the top. Tomorrow it will get wax and various other cleaners, color enhancers and protectants.

Its a multipurpose cleaner like windex or clorox (the bleach free kind) but is very concentrated. You can wet the top and spray the top down with the Simple Green, then use a scrub brush vigorously to get the stains out. I believe you can get it at Lowes or auto parts stores. Maybe Walmart too. Its great stuff for cleaning anything, even the engine bay (degreaser). Just remember to wet the surface first since it is concentrated.

EDIT: Also works great with a scrub brush to get mud rings out of tires. Leaves a slight odd color but tire shine fixes that.

Not familiar. But sounds similar. Simple Green is just the favorite around the forum for cleaning sailcloth.

It's a multipurpose cleaner, I use it to clean all the mud off of my black and tires, just a few sprays, let it sit for about 30 seconds then spray again and scrub with a hard bristle brush then spray off and it's like new money

TJ looks good so far but I have to ask...

I read through the whole thing because I saw a picture you posted that caused me to go as a result of your mammoth T-Case drop. Why no mention of an SYE yet? They're relatively inexpensive in comparison to a number of other mods you've already done, seems to me as though that'd be a priority because as it sits now the only thing garnering you any extra clearance is the fact that your tires are taller than stock...

I'm sure you probably already know all of ^ but I'm just a bit curious as all, not to knock you or the rig. the AA/TW combo is a nice setup that can be had for right around 560 and there are other less expensive options that you can find via. eBay. Primarily I recommend Tatton as I've heard good things about them....

For 460$ shipped you can't really go wrong, as I've heard nothing but good things about Tatton drivelines. I plan on getting a spare rear shaft from them before long as well as a new front shaft.

All that aside though, looking forward to seeing where you go with your build

Actually that is what I am saving for now. I have the Rokmen uppers. Just need the lowers, then the AA/TW combo.

Ah gotcha, good on ya then. You'll definitely be happy with your choice, the TW shaft is pure beef. When I first got mine I had to sit and stare at it for a while
