In our test, I’d been focused on the water, the turns and the throttle — all so crisp and smooth. Then we cut back across our own wake to gauge the chop’s effect on inducing rattles and groans — sounds there just weren’t any of. True to an inboard’s form, the bow cut deep into the wakes, but it delivered us over them in remarkably smooth form. Then, when the joy riding was done, I looked over the wheel for gauges and switches and all I saw was a 6½-inch LCD screen. I touched the screen and it came alive. Touch, and up came engine instruments. Touch again, and up came a page to turn on or off the bilge pump, courtesy lights and running lights — anything that is electrical is activated from here. Even the ballast tanks capable of holding 1,600 pounds can be filled and expertly balanced to your preference and tuned for a sweet “green room” surfing wake from this panel. Touch the TAPS2 button on the throttle to retract the tab, and the boat squats nicely for the wake. Put the tab down, and the running angle flattens for a skier’s thin wake.
