do they make one for a 197? not that it really needs one, just curious.

Used mine all the time last summer. I have two daughters 7 and 10 and with the bow filler cushion in the bow usually had both of them plus 2-3 friends.

You will not be sorry. I can leave the bimini up, no one notices. But if I fail to put in the bow filler cushion, EVERYONE complains. All the kids love it.

thx for the feedback. I am going forward and glad to hear it is worth the $ cause they dont appear cheap. Makes the small bow on the x2 much roomier. Thanks

They sure do and in my opinion, the filler cushion is most needed for the 197. I am a small guy... 5'7" and 160lbs, but my a$$ still would not fit on the cushions in my 197. The filler cushion made the bow actually usable.

The bow filler cushion is a necessity in my opinion.

the cushion was 225 and the board was 75 so 300.00 total on second thought. Yeah it is from MC thru the dealer and I didnt want to take a chance on a mismatch so i let them do it.

I've got one too and I love it. Use it all the time. I just wish it had the same attention to detail as the rest of the interior ie stitching or different colors

With kids it's a must. Plus on Lake Powell, I've slept in the bow of our x45 several times.

Beleive it or not, you can use it to keep your boat cleaner too. I glued marine carpet to the board under the cushion. Now when people jump up the boarding ladder at the front, they have something to wipe their feet on. Works really well.

Has anyone secured the cushion to the board? What did you use?

Still gotta make the support board to go under mine, but I was planning on velcro to attach the 2 so it can't fly out going down the hiway.
Did that to the seat cushion behind the driver because it would always pop loose on the hiway. Couple 3" strips keeps it in place and still easy to pull the cushion up.

Anyone know if I can get one for my '97 PS205? I'm not sure if there is a ledge to support it or not?

I mailed the template of the support piece to your P.O. Box on Monday. Looks like you can buy cut Starboard off of Ebay-might be worth looking into if they'll cut it to your template. I talked to a local plastic place a couple of years ago and they wanted around $50 to make one for me.

I figured I would ask around here and a couple other wake sites to see if anyone wants to get rid of their bow filler cushion before contacting my dealer? People seem to either love them or hate them and with the amount of time we spending lounging/swimming these days I am in the need for one ( kids will do that to ya!). Figured I would give this a shot first to see if anyone wants to get rid of theirs versus spending $300 + @ the dealer? THX :)

My bow cushion arrived today with the board. Looks nice but will have to wait till this wknd to install. It's 2 pieces so I guess you have to use Velcro or something to adhere the cushion to the board. Wow it took a while to get here though.

Had mine for the whole season and never took it out except to re glue the velcro on the cushion backing. Used super glue but someone probably has a better glue idea out there. May have to quit being lazy and sew the velcro to the fabric.

Well, I'm in the market for one for a 2007 X2. Any leads on a good priced one?

Had one in our last boat for 12 seasons and never took it out. We loved it.
