I also saw a thread recently about Rino lining the rear lockers. I might consider that as well. That area gets all mildew smelling and I don't like it. I'm waiting to see how his turns out.

traxx to get the tube off the platform. tie a loop in the rope about a foot from your tube and hook it in off the back. it will ride nice there up the lake.

i cant seem to spend the money on PP but ive been thinking about it. I dont want bags, I think the wake is big enough for me, anyway I have subs to the side of the engine as well as an extra battery. I always open my rear cover when im not using the boat, so it dont stay wet but i like the idea or ryno lining.

Haha. I do that. However this was an end of season shot. My sunpad had two giant rips down the seam of the color stripe. Since they were embarrassing, the tube covered it. It's also why I just had my interior redone.

I put my sub in the walk through. Cut a hole right in the port side. I have dual battery as well. One in each locker. If you go a page back you can see it. I also hogged out all the holes and stuffed 7.7" speakers in. With components. Came out real nice.

Did u see the interior thread I posted? I'm so excited to hear peoples reaction to it.

Thanks I love my maristar. Surfs great, wake is good for boarding, ski wake is meh but its way cheaper than a new one. And we own them if you know what i'm saying vs a new one.

Chicago water, Oh yeah. Like bath water in june and july. Right now it is cold though. a cool 46degrees.

Remove the tower

On a serious note, you could dress up the trailer a little:

F2 Fulton trailer jack

Guide post covers

LED trailer lights

And as simple as it seems, these center hubs dressed up my cheap trailer wheels very well - several people at the lake asked me if I bought new wheels:




For the boat, modern day bubble style lettering, and I agree on perfectpass - best watersports invention ever..

What would the trailer jack get me?
I want to get MC guide post covers, that would be awesome.
I was going to do LEDS when my current bulbs burn out.
Does your hubs cover up the outside of the hub/bearing buddies?

The wheel hubs are open on the ends, to not block access to bearings. I bought a close ended for the spare... $22 @ discount tire. I highly recomment to take your spare with u to DT to check for proper diameter... I do not remember which diameter I bought.



For the guide posts, bought from MC By Design, $30 bucks + shipping. I also bought the end caps for the top @ my local dealer

Here you can see the guide posts + the LEDs (on the refurbished fenders):



For F2, I was sick of having a trailer jack that was wobbly and weak and ugly. I had a trailer jack give way on me once and it broke all my toes. So I ordered the jack with a weld on plate, and used a local welder to install it (sawed off old MC bracket) ($40 cash deal)

Then I painted it after it was cooled off.
