I have a 89 tristar, I bought a extended pylon that is 2.5 inside diameter with a 3" outside.

I was in California last week visiting and bought a brand new skylon rack. I was all proud of myself until I got home.. The wakeboard rack fits on a 2.5 outside diameter and my pole outside diameter is 3"

Does anyone have any cool modification tips that they have tried, or any other ideas that would be helpful? I assume that the 2.5 inside diameter is the right one for my boat?

First suggestion- see if the store will exchange it. No idea what shipping would be tho.
Second idea- could a local machine shop fab a new mounting bracket that fits a 3" pole? Remove 2.5" mount, use that as a template. Would probably be $$ tho.
3rd- maybe Skylon will sell you the appropriate mount bracket (and maybe even let you send your brackets back for credit?)
