Looking for some input.

I'm thinking about purchasing a set of racks from Corson Piper. I've contacted him, seems like a good guy. Also seems like those who have bought them love them.

For me with the ZFT2 tower, I think I would have to mount them under the tower as opposed to on top. It just would not work with the bimini. Wondering if headroom would be an issue.

Anyone have these or know anyone who has them?

Here are a couple links:

Might checkout this recent thread: http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=59130

Net-net: I have the Bullet Lines surf rack on my zero-flex tower, fits very nice, easy to remove when installing my tower cover, holds thicker boards securely but beware with thinner boards. Depending on number of boards on your boat, consider stowing on top of bimini.

The only issue I see with this concept is that I would have to have my bimini extended every time I'm out surfing...

does anyone know the width of a 07 x2 bimini? boat is up at the lake so i can't measure it right now.

first this isn't near as nice as jdhart72's bimini surf pockets but worked great. cost $10.00 from harbor freight.

I have a inland surfer swallow that wouldn't fit in the rack. plus with all the other wakeboards and surfboards I tried this cargo net. I wanted to run my boards length wise but with the bimini set up on the 07 towers that wasn't going to work unless I do the pockets.

the net came with rubber coated hooks that fit the bimini poles great. also was able to fold the bimini with all hooks attached.

Looks great and a good way to store boards!

I'm bumping this, because I need to get a cargo net for my bimini. How's it working for you ttu? I put my new doomswell in the board rack the other day, and I can tell the pressure from hitting waves will put little indentations on it. Don't want that. Up top it goes!

still works great. only thing I would do different is glue the little rubber end caps on the hooks.

I never take it down. last week I even folded the bimini and put it in the boot with the net still up there.

Nice... there's a Harbor Freight conveniently on my way to the lake. I'll have to stop there next time up.

Using a cargo net on the bimini to store surf boards has to be one of the best ideas of the summer. It's great for keeping surf boards stowed securely and out of the way when not in use (at least on my old boat...). I bought the harbor freight cargo net but didn't like the metal hooks so replaced them with plastic ones from the internet. Total investment was 20 - 25 bucks. Probably the cheapest thing I've bought for this boat...
