I would recommend the Bilstein 5100 as well. I installed them on my truck years ago and they have been great. I custom ordered a longer set online since I have a leveling kit. They won't help with...

I think your weight estimates for a loaded 45 are low. You are much closer to 8K lbs and with a full tank of fuel you could be over. The factory dry weight of 5K lbs is inaccurately low as I believe...

The tower boom mounts to the front round tower leg. It keeps the footer out of the chine spray. The downside being no more hopping in/out of the boat at speed. Now we have to start in the water....

I might at home, I will look tonight. When you say big base are you referring to the mounting bracket where the boom attaches? The base remains mounted on the tower but it is completely out of the...

Tower boom might be your best option. They are a bit of a pain to put on while on the water but they work.

Hey Scott - long time no see. You need to stop by once in a while. ;)

Yeah that is weird. Was your GY experience with the Marathons? The GY Endurance trailer tires are new, only been on the market for a year. They can't be any worse than the 857's. So far all the...

We waterski with our 45. It does fine but you want to be on edge crossing the wake. We run the wake plate down 80-85%. No - it's not like skiing behind my previous 205 but we do it.
