Saw the new 19’ WakeBooster package in person today. Dealer said it was definitely a difference maker in their quick initial testing. Has anyone had a chance to see it in action yet to see if it warrants the price tag?

Have been told I am next on the list for a wakebooster but beginning to feel like I might be just strung along and they plan to put them on all the 2020 models. Will see if they get sick of me asking.

Our local dealer got theirs in stock last week, but we had the local boat show over the weekend. I'm waiting to hear back about actual availability as well as seeing if they can get a video demo-ing the difference it makes for our 19 footers.

I don’t think this works on 2018’s or older?

The hull design changed with the introduction of the 2019 models, I'm assuming that's why.

I have not had time to take my boat out since I picked my kit up. I was first on my dealers list and i definitely didnt expect to get it before spring even though they said their expectation was late Dec. So I have had the boat apart for audio upgrades and some other little projects plus it's been cold and rainey lately. I did decide I'm taking it in to have the dealer mount the fatsac brackets. The templates provided were hand drawn, for one side and are just a little goofy and I just dont want to mess with it. Everything else in the kit looks top notch though. I know my daughter is super excited for the water to warm up some. I do still want to take it out and see what the wake is like though even if no one will surf it right now but between crazy work and the weather it's been tough.

It is -24 with a -44 windchill. There is 2' of ice on the lake. I think I am out for at least the next 3 months....or at least I am ice fishing for the next 3 months.
