So when I bought my 2015 B52, it had factory surf system, MB Switch Gen 2. It produced a good wave but not great...(to me).
i read all of the threads about the slappers and knew that the Ghetto Gate worked well on my Sanger V230.
i wanted the slapper effect, but I wanted to use what I had on hand, not buy more stuff and throw out the brand new existing!
so, I sat behind Blue for hours trying to come up with an idea that was cost effective and not too labor intensive.
first, I made a plywood mockup to check angles and motion.
then I broke out my trusty plasma and TIG gear and got to work.
i already had some 3/16" stainless on hand. So I cut out a plate to replace the factory one and another in the shape of the slapper. I welded it up then used 3/8" stainless tubing to make the hinge-half. I pulled the existing hinge pin and dropped the factory plate and replaced it with my new one( on each side).
So I kept the Factor actuators and brackets and the hinge-half that was already mounted to the boat. It also uses the factory controller.
im much happier with the wave on both sides.
I later added hdpe to them to look a little better and increase the size
