  1. That's really nice looking. Great job!
  2. nice work! That looks way better. I'm sure you'll enjoy it more and find it more usable.
  3. Sorry. I took the rack out on a buddy's boat this weekend, but the elestic straps on his rack and rubber inserts were all jacked up so we didn't strap it on and use it even though it fit perfectly. Didn't snap a picture of it though. I'll update this thread whenever I get another opportunity to. Sorry.
  4. Yeah, you might be able to pair that with this longer tower rack replacement bungee cord. https://www.boatcoversdirect.com/products/accessories/replacement-tower-rack-bungee/?gclid=CjwKCAjwh472BRAGEiwAvHVfGgrxztnX-SVNYHbBepzx4Y2ipR8VgkMaL7lHKYfxiKW4Bml-UAVhRBoCiCAQAvD_BwE
  5. They're not super stretchy. For my purposes they do steadily hold the skis in place. There were some different additional straps available for purchase on the display rack at Bass Pro. Also you might search the manufacture's website to see what your other options might be. I won't really get to see how well mine will work until I get out on the lake and see what if any rope interference issues I might have created for myself. We'll see. What you trying to do? Rack up more surfboards on your boat. I think I'd find a different device to utilize for surfboard racks. I'm thinking more al
  6. Ok, Let's assume that there are still people out that that like to slalom ski or at least would like to have a pair of combo skis with them on their boat. There are expensive and hard to find ski racks that are made to mount on towers. However, many towers have the standard finger rack that will hold both wake boards and surf boards. I have such a rack for my Skylon. But I'd like to get two slalom skis out of the floor of my boat. One night when I couldn't sleep, I started to think that the Y shaped racks that are used to mount guns onto 4-wheelers might be able to be repurposed for holding wa
  7. I knew that I was going to overhaul my dashboard as part of my ski boat restoration. But whey would you want a devise like a GPS Chart Plotter / Fish finder that's generally used by fisherman? Well, for a couple of reasons. 1. The GPS part can make navigating your lake or unfamiliar lakes much better. Even if you know your lake like the back of your hand...the chart plotter can be a huge help navigating at night. More on that later. 2. Everyone want to know how deep the water is at any given place on the lake. Isn't better to know what the bottom actually looks like and see if it's rising up
  8. You're doing great work! Keep it going. My cousin hosts a youth group from a church about 40 miles away at his lake house the first weekend in August every year. My kids and I have helped with the last 5 years or so. Last year we had 60 kids. It's truly amazing what it means to them. Most have never been on the lake before...in spite of living pretty close to one. Bless you!
  9. I've got a list of things to upgrade / fix this year including my rudder port/rudder. 1993 Ski Centurion.

    Here's my restored boat...but are they ever really finished?
  11. Looks great! I'm about to do my own gatorstep project too. But mine will only consist of deck pieces as my interior floor isn't gel coated and it's carpeted like a traditional tournament ski boat from the 90s.
  12. Nice job. I have a different issue with my rudder. I have pitting on my rudder shaft and that creates slop in my rudder. I think i'm going to have to replace the rudder and the box in order to get it firmed up. It's not too bad now, a little slop at the steering wheel, but feels pretty good when under power. And, it's not leaking water into the bilge so it's sealed up tight. That'll be a winter project some year.
  13. how hard was it to make this piece (see attached picture)? What was your process? free hand? did you make a wood template for these upper deck pieces too. Trying to gauge how hard it would be to make some of the top side gator step type pieces. And if 5 rolls is the minimum...that would be enough to do 3 boats, if you're not doing the floor.
