This is assuming your screen works or the when you push the "surf left/right" icon (not button) it does what the icon suggests instead of turn on the blower or switch from Bluetooth to XM.

I too, am a firm believer......in simple stuff that works.

Problem with an actuator is you don't really have a "solid" base. If you wired up an actuator you'd have to have this installed full time to run the wiring/hydrolics/whatever. I think this needs to be removable to keep from disrupting the wakeboard wake, and to eliminate any unneeded stress in that area.

I was thinking removable too. Mounted to the wake gate not boat. Maybe with a set of wires that come into the boat with simple toggle controls. I'm figuring it might look kinda ghetto though.

What was the Ballast set up

Curious about the Ballast set up. Thanks.

Glad to see that so many people are having success enhancing their wake surfing experience.

I don't have the boat in front of me (its at the lake a few hours away), but me and a buddy would love to build one for their 205V and take it with us this weekend. Any body have pictures/a few measurements on one for their 205v?

If you look through the thread someone made one for a 205v. There are pics but I'm not sure if he listed measurements.
