Continued to try and figure out a way to install an X-2 style wake plate on my X-9 --
on the theory that the X-9 did not perform for slalom quite as well as hoped (hence, the birth of the X-14 mid season)
and the theory that the transom of the X-2 is very similar to the transom of the X-9 --
and on the theory that the wake plate does in fact tremendously help the slalom wake of the X-2.
Having said that, not getting a lot of help from MC or local dealer or Lenco or Overtons on this research. Guess it will be total DIY.
