Build any of the 21 Skier with an outboard?
Wanted to see how you rig it and swim platform placement?

Base is around $55k now w Biden ville
This one priced out to $61k range w LS3 upgrade
How much better or faster / acceleration can he expect with LS3 jet ( I assume) vs say the merc 6.2 Bravo 1- over all acceleration and top speed? Is it close?

So far all the skiers on order are jets
Still trying to get an outboard family skier on order
We have 23 deck outboards coming.
Would love a Suzuki 250 skier value deal 03F592B8-8260-48CE-A5ED-35E9BB6004E1.jpeg

Is the 21 skier hull the same as Nordic use on their 21 skier? They look very similar.

21 skier
Lsa is gone so the lsx 500hp is closest to budget

Could you run one of these in front of a bravo setup? I guess if you had the bellhousing adapter you could right? Do they build parts to make that happen?
Any marine power motor you can
We do it all the time
LSA - bravo 1 fucking shits and gets

I will never understand why Mercury never adopted the LS platform.

They cast their own SBC , and they buy the 502 blocks from GM Gen 6 non bow tie for the 8.2ho and all Mercury racing 700 and under motors.

Anyone know the story ?

The 21s are bad ass. If I were to buy another boat, it would be one of yours.

For anyone who has a 21 skier how do they handle rough water, we boat on Torch Lake in Michigan that is 2 miles wide and 19 miles long. I have a 20 ft Ski Nautique and water comes over the nose when not on plane. Would love to get a test ride and if anyone in the Michigan area is a current owner?
Boat has great lines and checks a lot of the boxes you what we want.

What do you consider rough water? We had the Shockwave skier and a busy weekend in Havasu was not fun at times. Probably 2’ chop?

We build them for outdrives and jets
21 skiers are basic river family boats

If you want a bigger water open bow
You need to step up to 24-25’ in my opinion.

These are skiers. Smooth water family rides on a budget

What MPH are you getting with that LSX 454?
No clue but I’ll find out
It hole shots like a raped ape
7.4L LS 454 was impressive

Lsa gets it at the top end but the lsx easily gets 3 boat lengths from a drag start

Lsa boats went 69 w a impeller
Lsx should me mid 60s

I set them up for more mid range

Here is the problem
LSX are hard to get
Went from $18800 value motor to offset LSA being discontinued to $22k…..delivered w change order

Now they don’t have pricing and estimate $27k today Biden

So I don’t have accurate LSX pricing as of today

Figure $65-69k loaded w L87 nice jet no bullshit gator floors turn key

LSX may be $5k more or $11k more, so that’s the current problem.

How long is that Bimini? Big enough to shade the rear bench and front buckets? Also love the gauges, are they Livorsi?
