Shims didn't last long, need a better solution. I took the pole out and measured it at 45" but noticed the bottom has a large section of the OD turned down about 1/8". Also noticed the floor hole that the base of the pole was sitting in is hollow, there is a piece of fiberglassed plywood that is about 3" off the bottom of the hull. Also the top u-bolt is mounted to a cross member that has a cast sleeve the pole goes through then the u-bolt is below the sleeve.
Anyone know how high off the floor or above the doghouse the ski pole should be when installed?
I'll try to upload pics from my phone tonight.
