Wakesurf gate for 1988 Mastercraft Tristar 190

I just purchase my first boat and I want to add a wakesurf gate to it.

Has anybody done so and if so can you share your ideas and maybe pictures.

I just purchased my first boat and would like to do some wakesurfing with it.

I'd like to hear people's opinion on how to instal a wakesurf gate for this boat and maybe share some pictures.

Plenty of info here and over on wakeworld.com about DIY surf gates, ghetto gates, etc. Just do a search. I made a DIY version of Ronix Eight.3 wake surf shaper. Works really well. Pics, vid, and more detail here: http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=70442

No, I will be in tomorrow. Will bring the ballasts with me. Also I changed my account, same person, had an issue getting it off of guest mode so admin deleted my old one.

So I will get some pics tomorrow and post them up
