The CIPA 180 by itself (no mount) is $64 on Amazon right now. I've seen it drop to $37 several times, but $64 is the normal price. I needed to mount it to my tower so I didn't need the windshield...

Love it. Several friends have the PTM Edge and I can't tell the difference. Clear and wide angle view. Don't have to strain to see the rider at all no matter how far they cut outside the wake.

Thought I'd share a shot I took yesterday in my mirror (CIPA 01600). Don't judge my wake. Ballast was empty since we had several beginners with us that day.

FWIW, the skate ramp (homemade Ronix Eight.3 Wakesurf shaper) works better than my old ghetto gate that attached to the swim platform did. Cleaner wake with more push. I've also used a suck gate and...

I would guess yours is like mine since mine has the X2 logo. Not sure on the exact height difference but from the pics the tower on that DD looks about a foot and a half shorter than mine.

That ND bimini looks great on the mini tower. But on the full height ND tower it may not provide as much shade.

You'll want to stick with the same brand as the fittings are not interchangeable. I don't have a DD so I can't comment on best placement. 1000# seems like a good place to start. You could start with...

Yessir! I use royal oak lump and don't quite fill up the fire box (but close to full) and it's gone 8+ hours with lump leftover.

Yes. It is a controller with a fan and thermometer built in. When temp drops fan speeds up and vice versa. It attaches to the bottom vent.

I love it. I use lump charcoal in it and can hold smoking temps pretty well with just stock setup and minimal babysitting. My buddy has a pit master IQ 110 that he uses on his akorn so he doesn't...

My BGE knockoff. The chargriller akorn. We like pork shoulders and whole chickens mostly. Occasionally ribs, too.

One wouldn't "need" any extra weight at all to surf most inboards, especially if a wake surf device is used. But the more weight, the better it gets. Size, length of pocket, and push all get better...

They absolutely work. My wake went from bad to great. You still need ballast (the more the better), but it can be evenly weighted. No need to lean the boat anymore. Here's goofy wake with 2500lbs of...

That is so cool! I've seen the jetsurf thing before but the drone surf opens up so much more that can be done on the board: kick flips, spins, ollies, etc.

I'm selling my boat and getting a drone!

Does either way make it easier to fold up and stow than the other? If all else is equal, then IMO the second pic looks better. But it isn't my boat! Do what makes you happy. Or if you don't care,...

I'm still not sure why, even on brand new boats, some manufacturers are still using bungee cords to secure boards. The PO of my boat had a New Dimensions ZF tower put on it circa 2003, and it has...

15-17 mph is SLOW for that hull. If you run much ballast you'll need to be upwards of 20 to clean it up. Here's 2500# ballast at 22.7mph:

Agreed. It's one thing to copy Mission's design on your own and make one yourself. It's another to blatantly steal it and start selling it. Some of these knockoffs are nearly identical.
