    • Year: 2000 Brand: Tige Device Type : Suction Cup Gate Style Surf Device Material: (unspecified) Control: Unspecified Cost: (unspecified) Platform Type: Teak

    Simple Sucgate project. Aluminum HOD (Handle On Demand, two stainless steel shelf brackets, one cutting board, stainless 1/4" hardware. I'm into this project for $50. I'm making another now. On the first version, the self bracket support members were just friction fit. As soon as the boat was put in reverse, they fell out. The gate still worked but it flexed a bit and allowed water between it and the boat and it seemed to throw more spray. The new ones are tack welded in there and should stay. I put a 20 degree bend in the short arms of the brackets and a spacer on the bottom holes to get a 20 degree angle on the cutting board. Extremely pleased with the results on a friends '01 Tige 21v with just 400#s on the surf side.

    Great project.  I'd pay money for that setup.   $50 bucks versus 500?  No brainer.   Thanks for posting this.  I've got a friends 01 Nautique I'm going to put this on.
