Hell no, down here in OZ the water doesn't spin even in the toilet bowl. Dead calm. I shoot ducks because they leave a wake on our lake. Sick of the glassy water burning my feet when I have a foot

You can run the boom out the driver side but depending on your size, might find the driver seat will need to be pulled up pretty close to the steering wheel. The contour boom gives a bit more room than a straight boom but it might still be a tight squeeze behind the wheel.

Get a Bemman's boom. Lighter, one cable, and can go out the driver side or passenger side. Scarpa used to sell them and use them at his ski school. You can also buy them direct at

I've had three large footers off mine, and it's always been fine. The boom doesn't have to weigh 100 lbs to be considered "strong".

Any pictures? I would also be concerned with weight distribution with both the footer and the driver on the same side. The boom would be closer to water and need to be adjusted up to compensate. Also depends on how many are in the boat.

Hey there, I too have a 13 model Prostar in Brisbane and wanting a boom bar. A friend has a barefoot international on his Matrix and it is a very good unit but not sure whether it will be compatible with the mini tower option my Master craft has on it

What's up with the "gunnel mounted boom" ?
I like the idea of mounting it forward of the wind shield for space but how would that work especially on a 190?
