    Looks like a cream sickle, but I like it. Too bad I will not be behind it this weekend.

    I like it also. I am going to miss the regionals this year though. @Pat M ski well.

    I'm kinda thinking along the lines of dream sickle.
    Always looking for a pull... Will you be my boatdriver?

    Ok, time for me to flog my dead horse: When will the boat builder on their website be updated to have even a vague correspondence to the actual color schemes available?

    I can't imagine that The Boss would approve any new boat without being able to see the approximate look of any given color scheme!

    What am I missing? How can it possibly be good business to NOT have the ability to play with and print out potential boat looks?

    I LOVED Orange Crush as a kid. Recently rediscovered it in a different form. With that being my favorite color as well, I could really see myself owning that boat..drinks as part of the package of course.

    @Than_Bogan when have I seen "The Boss" out on the boat? I would think she wouldn't care what color the boat is.

    @Than_Bogan‌ I plan to visit the factory to get my next year's boat. You and The Boss should meet me there and look first hand.

    that color scheme is absolutely hideous, but hey too each their own! At least it slaloms great!

    It may be a generational thing. As a product of the 70's, that color scheme is right up my nostalgia wheel house. However, pictures of boats out of the water are depressing!

    @oldjeep‌ willing to try in both.

    It might sell to a Tennessee Vols fan. Otherwise, someone is going to get a great tournament boat at a discounted price.

    Doesn't look that bad to me. I've seen a lot worse color combinations in one other brand this year.

    Dang it !!!! @Kelvin‌ ... Now I have no chance of ever owning the Orange Crush. My Gator loving (obsessed) wife will have nothing to do with a Vols color scheme. Still drinking the orange floats though.

    My next CP will be blue and white again. Current boat is awesome so I am doing it again. Plus I want to be just like @skidawg‌

    @Chef23 Haha! So wrong!

    @Horton Visit the factory to pick out colors? Did it become 1870 when I wasn't looking?

    Love the boat but utterly baffled by their marketing strategy.

    I prefer to call it turn ball orange, and would happily own it...especially at discount:)

    @Horton. Nevermind. It was late and I read the thread as the Centurion "was hit" at the western regionals. Looking at it again "was a hit". I think I need a vacation..

    @Than_Bogan‌, I know exactly what you mean about the web sight "build your boat" color scheme problem, which I noticed a few months ago. I think the root of the problem is that there are only 3 hull area check boxes to the left in the build your boat section, where there should be 4 or 5 to get the process right. I hope the management works on that, regarding the web sight. I skied behind the carbon pro during my lessons at broho, and it's a wonderful slalom boat with I think a smaller wake than my s/n 196. It's beautiful also.

    @bogboy Yep. The truth is I'm not buying one in the next couple of years anyhow, but I think it's quite likely I will someday. And that leads to the key point I am so baffled by: Shouldn't Centurion be doing everything in their power to accelerate my timetable? Wouldn't being able to print out cool-looking boats to share with my family be the single largest impact-per-dollar-spent way to do so??

    @Than_Bogan let me know when you are ready to buy a Centurion. I might be interested in your SN.

    Blasphemy ... You can think it but writing it?!?! ;-)
