I bought new pads last year for my "skinny" 1.5" poles. The company that sold them to me just added a little more padding so that the pads they make for 2" poles would fit. It's not rocket surgery.

My question wasn't about power turns (which I don't do, BTW). I was wondering about any deleterious effects on the tranny/drivetrain of leaving it in gear vs letting the prop freewheel as the boat...

If you plan to do any significant skiing you'll want a direct drive, not V-Drive.

I personally know of a 1999 PS205 (not a 205V) that is in near-mint condition, 200 hours. He won't sell it for $15k...

If I had a Bridgeport mill and some 3/8" aluminum scrap laying around I would build my own too. :D
