Thought about getting two so I could scale buildings like one of those high brow cat burglars or double naught spies. Settled on one in hopes of getting a starboard wake instead. All seem equally far-fetched, but hey, fingers crossed. Thanks again for the tip.

Arrived today. $85 and free shipping. Unsure about the bathtub handle (Buy it for Looks. Buy it for Life), but we'll see. http://www.homedepot.com/p/MOEN-Home...308W/202884186

Quality is surpringingly good given the price. Nuking all weekend (the benefit and curse of living in the kiteboard/windsurf capital of the world), so no testing it out. Mounted pic attached.

Corbin I was checking out your setup, and the one thing I do is run a walkway sac in the bow... but your wave looks better than mine, did you experiment with running that? Thinking mine might be better with relocating that to the cabin.

Also, post more pictures of that last surfer

I ran a 400 in the bow when I had a group in the boat Labor Day weekend. Wake was money but everyone was sitting in the cabin and we had two coolers on the sunpad in the center.

You got one of those self-driving Telsa boats?

Yep. Oddly with the bobv5 and even weight it'll drive itself all day in a straight line

How do you guys keep the nose above water with all that weight up front? I put 400 lbs of tractor weights in my 04 xstar and the dang nose want to dive.
