I am looking at 2 upgrades and need some help. Does anyone know if I pt the ski extensions on my 2006 X1 racks will a wakeboard still fit. And does anyone know if a Walker surfboard will fit on standard racks. Thanks for the help

There was talk of MBD making surf racks for the towers, but I was told that project was scrapped when R&D and production of the power tower started.

Would be nice if they made a set that was about a half inch wider.

Agreed. I would snap one up pronto.

Thanks guys, I love those boards but not being able to rack it is a deal killer for me.

Do you need to lower your tower to store your boat?

If not what about one of those bolt on surfboard racks that goes over the top of the tower?

The racks on my '08 with the ski extensions is where we keep our kids wakeboards. The boots are so close together on the kids' boards that they won't fit in the standard rack. I have never tried the other way (my board on the ski rack).

Here is the answer to your problem. I have these on my boats. IIRC, mounted on a 1" 7/8 crossmember near the top of the tower. I bet Ian at onlyinboards.com can do a little better if you tell him I sent you.

Walker board still don't fit :mad:

Clamps are different from 05- 06+. I think I know of a boat who wants to trade already, though :D

I love the looks of the water ski racks! There was a killer newer X2 on here that had them on both sides. Look great and I'm guessing they still fit wakeboards, ski's, surfboards, etc. I actually bought some waterski rack extensions awhile ago, but it was off a prostar and it didn't work with my boat......

Agree. We can put the surfboard and a kids wakeboard in the ski rack.

Walker Project boards fit or the CWB skim type boards?

My F18 would fit if it didn't have the hydro turf on it.

Hey guys. I'm sorry to veer off topic a little but have a question. I have the stationary Mastercraft diamond shape backing plates and want to outfit them with wakeboard and surfboard fingers.....

Does anyone sell just the fingers that will fit OEM Mastercraft backing plates?

Thanks in advance!
