    Surf Tabs AND Gates

    hell yes. Love it. I thought of trying this too.... glad someone finally did it!
  2. NIcely done. 99%? That's a heck of a discount! I think the large bore holes looks cooler than original too. Great project.
  3. That's pretty sick. The first picture looks like it's in the power lines. haha Pretty handy work there my friend. I can see how that'd be very convenient.
  4. WOW! Dude that is clean! Nice job and thanks for sharing. DIY - but looks stock!
  5. Looks great. Made that look easy. Thanks for writing this up.
  6. Nice work! Love the winch relays... we forget about those bad boys sometimes for heavy loads.
  7. Great write up. Very popular calipers
  8. That's a cool idea -- and looks awesome.
  9. That's awesome. Thanks for sharing
  10. Had a few questions about the switch mount I had in original post. It was one of the original Malibu stereo remote mounts --- but some versions had spots for rocker switches and some didn't. I ended up removing that anyway to run an MC1 stereo and the Wake Garage switches from the store. (the original with the "wave" for the power was spray painted. Haha I'm using the laser etched ones that look better.
  11. You made that look easy. Great project and write up. Feels good to get something like that done. Awesome!
  12. Without reading the post I thought maybe you created a super malibu-style wedge at first w/ 3 foils. haha Great idea - that's a project that's gonna be well worth doing. Looks clean as usual
  13. Strong work -- I like that dark grey too. Looks awesome
  14. @Corey95sunseter Peter at smoothwatersports.com had three of these wedges for$600 a piece recently. I'd give him a call. In NY.
  15. Happy with the results? I installed FAE on my last boat and of course made a surf pipe for this one. I won't go back to stock exhaust.
  16. I'm sorry I'm not 100% sure, but I do think 1995s can support a wedge. Malibu may be able to tell you... there was a time when they could sell the old manual wedges for older boats. A world of difference vs the 87 stock. Totally different. If you go that route, I would track down a stainless manual wedge (aka floating wedge) but would not have to be homemade like this one had to be.
  17. For the right price, it could be worth narrowing. Usually narrowing isn't that much. Might also call a dealer, like Bakes, and see what Malibu charges these days for a new tower to right dimensions. It was an option at one point.
  18. I would imagine it does. But I don't know for sure. You also have a *little* flexibility in mounting it for optimal clearance. I do know they make a low clearance hoop if you had to go even more. I can't tell you how much I love the tower though. Honestly. It's solid.
  19. That's cool. How hard was it to wrap?
  20. Great write-up. Nice to see how the samples stack up too.
  21. So awesome... I'm doing this one day. Love it.
  22. Midship has always made the most difference for me, in both boats we've added a gate style setup. Don't be afraid to try less ballast too -- I know that sounds weird, but with SG it's not always the most ballast that makes the best wave (it is with tabs though). If you have great success with mid ballast, or more in the bow etc, then lead ballast comes in to play if you want to hide it. I've got 500 lbs hidden.... yup, got creative. Awesome project.
  23. I agree... don't think a tad bit taller makes any difference in wave, just more spray. Much bigger gate, with a lot more ballast... probably does. Great setup! And a nice write up. Congrats on finishing the project.
  24. That's awesome. Clean solution. I need to do something like this. We just cleaned our garage out.... epoxied the floors and painted the whole garage. And I need to find a better way to store the boards. Well done.
