What a great idea having a ski rack in your boat. This looks like a good winter project adding this feature. Does anyone know if this rack is available as an aftermarket purchase?
Are there other options out there lets see em.
That's funny, I was just at the factory yesterday, and they were showing me this. It's definately pretty cool. It actually clamps the ski's in place - at the bottom is a release you press with your foot. Don't know if you could get that aftermarket or not though.
There are an extreme few boats that have the storage length and height needed to set a ski in those racks. Most boats either the tip or the tail of the ski--or both--have to be tucked behind the interior trim panel. That was a major design point on these new boats--increasing the open area around the motor box for these racks. It isn't just a different interior panel, the whole gunwhale is narrower and more curved on top.
I do also really like them. Being that some wakeboard tower racks are touching $3k now I'm a little scared to hear the price on these though.
