My 220 has one of them. You lift the hatch in the floor and it goes in the boat just in front of the V drive

I thought the T handle type were only used in the centre mounts.?

If you need a spare rear bung for the v drive, just go to bunnings & pick up a brass bung in the plumbing section for $2.

I thought it would be handy to use for a bilge bung plug, but it is a little big.

Off the top of my head I dont know the model number of that tower but I do know it's one that was only offered on the 230/236.

I agree it's a flash looking boat!

Sport Natique 200

Postby baz30 » Wed Jun 15, 2011 1:04 pm

Hey guys just wondering if anyone on here can give their views or experiences on the Sport Nautique 200. We have people that enjoy a good ski but also want to be able to load up for everyone who wants to board...Also seems this is a boat that you could genuinely ski/board/surf behind reasonably well. Have seen the one at the Melbourne boat show and its an impressive looking vessel!

Cheers

Hey Baz,

I had the chance to ride behind one over the Easter long weekend.

I was very surprised with the wake with 5 adults and the standard ballast.
It was a nice size and plenty of ramp, it wasn't crumbly at all and I got great pop from it.
We also had a wake surf behind it, and found that it was a good size, although we had too much weight down the back of the boat, it really needed more weight in the nose.

I'm not a skier so I can't can't comment on that side, but one of the guys had a ski and found it very good for a V-drive!

All in all a fun family boat, and perfect for a group that wants to do everything.

I have been meaning to upload some vids of the 200V in action for ages, finally got around to it...

Here is the link for a very quick slalom set behind the Sport 200 and I will upload a wakeboard set as well shortly. The boat imo is fantastic to ski behind, I enjoy it almost as much as a 196. haven't had much of an opportunity to wakeboard behind it yet.

Here is the link for a quick section of the wakeboard set. All of the footage is raw from my Iphone as I never intended to share this footage it was just for my reference but I think people like to see non-factory footage as most people at the recent boat show wanted to see the boat in action from the observers POV

The tower folds down, so it should be pretty close!

Fingers crossed you get it :)

Bump....

Just completed a new stainless steel bimini for the 220 as I got a bit peeved with the old one. Tried to incorpoate some styling from the current model ones within reason given the different tower styling.

Sorry about the sketchy photo but it was just after fabrication. Willl get some more photos when it gets back from the canvas guys later in the week.

The bars on the top are adjustable racks and the whole thing is a swing down easy load style for putting the boards on the roof

Well i gave the naut some love last week. Removed all the old pinstriping and wet rubbed the whole boat back from 300 up to 1500 then cut and polished it back to shiney again, painted the bimini, racks and windscreen surround black, carpeted the step on the transom, bit before the platform and inside the gunwales and re-oiled the platform. now its looking so pretty.

Nice work, the gelcoat does comes back like new with a wet sand and buff. I have been doing some wet sanding of my 98 Sport as well lately. Not a fun job but it is satisfying when you start buffing and see that shine coming back. A couple of beers later while admiring your work and the arms don't seem quite as tired.

New bimini is finished complete with an easy load option for boards on the roof. Don't think it turned out too bad. Have heaps of space and adjustability on the roof now compared to before.

Got some covers made for the tower lights and speakers at the same time to stop the annoying bug splats!

Not a silly question

Correct, I sold my spinner racks and bought some fluidcore ones (not mounted in the photos). Long story short, my racks need to be easilly removed to fit the boat into the garage. I also have a custom sky ski rack that is interchangeable with a wake rack utilising the fluidcore mounting system.

Very tidy work as per usual Andrew! Actually the whole rig looks spotless :D

We ran in to your other mate the the FAE on his Malibu at the boat ramp the other week. He had just had his first day out with it fitted and was stoked.

Andrew C That boat is looking sharp! You may have put this in the thread somewhere but can I ask what you use to paint your components black? and did you think of doing your bimini frame in black? I'd like the Z5 on our boat to be black.

The paint is just regular powder coating. I thought hard about painting the Bimini frame but decided not to fow two reasons.

Firstly because we lift it on and off all the time to store the boat, I was worried that the paint would be knocked around a little.

Secondly, the roof rails are adjustable forward and back and the metal fittings are a tight fit. I figured if there was paint involved the fit would be too tight and the paint would get scratched in the clamping and moving process when we adjust them as required.

Boys you aren't wrong, after a weekend on the water we are very impressed with the new boat. It is roomy and performs in all aspects very well.
Loving the pop with the belly tank full, it ski's pretty well and the surf wake is really fun, until Maritime put an end to that saying no lines under 6m, you might hit your head on the boat, people have died, yadayada...

Yes were staying at Big River, I heard they got someone with no observer.
The guy who pulled us over gave us a warning, he was pretty reasonable. Just had conflicting conditions and reasons behind banning wakesurfing to what I had read about.

People have died wake surfing? I would like to bet that more people have died on ski tubes than wake surfing behind a shaft driven boat.

The seller of that boat will be happy to see it gone to a good new home. It was for sale for some time. I had a look at it on the net when I was in the market for my nautique. Certainly has an impressive trailer package.

Have fun, you'll love it

Yes, we looked at buying this boat a year ago also, from a fellow Big River Ski Lodge Resident, at the time we were unsure we could fit a boat that size into our lodge, so we bought the Lewis. Were wrapped when we looked to upgrade and realised it was re-listed for sale.
