Canadian Yachting May 2021 - 13

EVERYONE GETS INTO THE FUN
Since forward-facing sterndrives can work with engines ranging from moderate V6s up to beefy V8s, the design is versatile
enough to allow boat builders to create surf boats in a vast range
of sizes and configurations, from economical 20-footers up to
luxurious day yachts to 30 feet or more, like Chaparral's 30 Surf,
Chris Craft's Launch 28 Surf Edition, Crownline's E275 Surf,
Cobalt's R7 Surf, Four Winns' HD8 Surf or Campion's new
Muskoka M26.
" Wakesurfing is a family activity that everyone can enjoy, "
says Campion Marine's Canadian sales manager, Jason Spanier.
" Anyone can do it, so it's a perfect activity for multi-generational
families. How often do you hear about teenagers who want to
hang out with their parents on the weekend? But that's exactly
what happens, and the kids start bringing their friends over and
everyone goes out in the boat together to have a great time. "

" ANYONE CAN DO
IT, SO IT'S A PERFECT
ACTIVITY FOR MULTIGENERATIONAL
FAMILIES "
JET BOATS
One good option for families who want to get in on the watersports fun but who remain concerned about the propeller is to
go with boats that simply don't have one. Jet boats provide the
ultimate in underwater safety by eliminating external propellers
altogether, relying instead on water jets for propulsion. It's a system that also happens to work well for wake surfing.
" A lot of people would like to try wakesurfing, but they are concerned about the proximity of the propeller, " says Andy Lindsay,
brand director for Scarab Jet Boats. " With jet power there are no
exposed propellers to worry about, so you have a safe boat that's
just as much fun whether you're surfing or grabbing an after-dinner ice cream or just hanging out at the sandbar on a gorgeous
summer's day. "

AN IMPORTANT WORD OF CAUTION:
While the proximity to the propeller is a major
safety concern, so too is the idea of loading the
boat with passengers or gear to make a bigger
wake when the boat was not designed for wakesurfing.
Conventional outboard or sterndrive powered
boats should NOT be used as wakesurf boats. A
conventional boat being used for wakesurfing,
could be swamped by its own wake and could
also place extreme strain on the transom and
other parts of the boat's structure. - ED
