Just my $.02.

Taught myself this way when I was 12 years old. We had an 85 h.p. outboard that topped out at about 30 mph. Had to have my brother who was 14 pull me with no one else in the boat to...

Just now seeing this product for the first time. I'm curious, does this not cause tremendous torque on the rear exchaust where it attaches to the hull? Seems like a lot of drag to have that exhaust...

For an '89 Prostar, you should be able to zip it up, and lay it forward right in front of the windshield without having to take it off. Keep one strap out on each side, and wrap it around the Bimini...

I had an '86 Skier before buying my 2003 TT 197, and I now have a 2013 WTT 197. The 85/86 wake at slower slalom speeds will be smaller than the 197 or 209. That's about where the benefit stops...

Does your trailer have a small flat square welded to it by the axle spindles? My '86 did, and if yours does too for $400 you can add surge brakes to your trailer. So easy to do if the bracket that...
