After an Ontario summer of sunshine and warm weather, you can't complain too much about a day of rain. It was a pretty spectacular summer.

Sorry - don't remember. Anyone else? They are expensive. I think MC charges about $120US for one clip and one receiver, with an MC branded clip. Installation was not included.

For most MC's,...

Yes. A fender line connects the fender to the piece on the left. The piece on the right is permanently installed on the boat.

I still love my clips. I have no extra advice on the holes, other than they are harder to think about than to actually drill.

Once you're using them, you do have to remember not to throw your...

I guess boats can get depressed too. :-)

We like our x-14V: jack of all trades and master of none. We ski, board and surf pretty well every day during boating season.

Excellent ski wake at shorter line lengths and competition speeds....

I have a different boat, but perhaps raising the platform fixes the cause? I added some pieces of teak between the platform and the support bracket. They are angled slightly, so the back is higher...

Yes- the nose is low. You will have to be careful, especially when surfing because the waves are huge and you're fully weighted.

One other change I've made: the sailmaker at the local MC dealer sewed an extension cover up the zft-4 tower so that I don't get rain into the boat. On both my old '12 with a zft2, and the new '14...

That looks amazing. I wonder if it would be safer if you tied an inflatable pillow or foam on the end of the rope. It would give you something to hold on to, and make it both softer and less 'whipy'.
