A friend bought one for his monterey I/O right as we were getting into wakeboarding.

It worked OK on that I/O. Problem was the wake sucked.

I don't know why you would ever consider one for an inboard, I'd stick with the regular extended pylon.

Not putting it on my boat my brother in law has a I/O he was considering putting it on. It sure doesn't look like it would be secure enough for me?

It did work OK.
Broke a strap once pulling a tube- probably wasn't a good idea.

Worst thing about it was we were then trying to wakeboard on an I/O- losing proposition.

thanks for the reply he was looking at this one and the ones you drill a hole in the floor. I would think that would be more secure but also a permanent screw up if he did not like the outcome with a hole in his floor.

The holes would likely be lost in the carpet if you change your mind and want to remove, see what size screws. I/O will generally require ballast in the middle of the boat. We had a sac between the windshield halves above the ski locker. It helped, but not as much as going to an inboard, which is not nearly as good as the neighbor's v-drive. Though I've never had 2000lbs ballast in my 85.
