View Full Version : Ski Pylon

Anyone have their ski pylon get loose? How much does yours move with a strong skiier behind the boat? Any tips on how to crank down on the nuts on the U-Bolts? Mine are tight, but the pole still moves around. Anyone ever have the mounting plate to get loose? Thanks for any help on the matter.

Mine seemed a little loose last week pulling a tube so I tightened the bolts with a 1/2 inch drive socket. there are two u-bolts, lower and upper. use big wrench. It is easier if you can remove the access panel, if your boat has one there. the mounting plat bolts go into a metal insert laid in the fiberglass so hopefully these have not come loose. check for tight on these mounting bolts also.

Just noticed last night the pylon was moving at the base while skiing- can anybody tell me exactly what tools we need to fix that and how hard it is to get at it? Don't dare use it until it's fixed, and the boat is 40 minutes away at camp so want to make sure we have the tools we need when we go. Thanks!
