I am getting a Fly High pole this season, and if I get the Clark Griswold Christmas bonus, I hope to put PerfectPass and a ND tower/racks/cans this winter on our "new" 195.
I had a Fly High pole with my Nautique back in the day. My son loved it for wake boarding.

I got caught in some rain yesterday so the boat was a mess. I gave her a nice bath this morning and she's sparking like brand new again! Ahhhhh. Now I can rest easy.

What I did today and a little story of what happened

Well boy do I have a story....4:30 am I hear rain beating down and thunder. Just remembered boat is not covered and drain plug in on the lift. I have been getting around to setting up a bildge with automatic float to deter the rain build up as even covered the boat still takes on water. Soooo I go to pull the plug and raise the boat to let the water out. I get in and raise the boat about a foot and pull the plug, thunder crashes all around and Im soaked after 2 minutes. I hear another crack of thunder and realize its the boat lift cable snapping Boat and all falls to water. I get my bearings as I cant determine if its a bad dream or reality and soon realize its really happening. I scramble to put the plug in but its so dark and raining so bad I fumble for a second. I get it in and start pumping water out of the bildge. Luckily there was no wind so I tied the boat to the dock and raced inside to get rain gear on and hook up the trailer. I wake up my girlfriend who has no idea whats happening and tell her to drive to the launch. I get in the boat and she fires right up. I get 500 ft from the dock and engine alarm goes off beeeepppppppppppp I shut the boat off and wait. starts back up and go another 20 seconds and beeepppppppppp. All gauges look good and first thought is a battery voltage alarm. I have no time to stop and look at the engine compartment as the rain beats down in the pitch black. I go anathor 20 seconds and am now about 200 yrds from the launch. I shut her down and starts right up no warning. I get to the launch and the trailer is not even backed halfway down. I panick.....Finally the trailer gets in and I pull the boat on. Hopefully without to much damage. I picked out the lift frame yesterday and removed snapped cable and sheave. took some pics and sent them to craftlander (who was super helpful and will have the new parts sent out under warranty). I started to work on the boat to find the issue and in fact all batteries are dead or close to it. I charge them all back and think the alternator is shot. I traced all wires to determine any corroded or faulty connections and found the wire from the alt. to the guest isolator is loose and melted, probably why I wasnt charging any batteries while underway. So in short I replaced the isolator and cleaned corroded connections today, along with hooking up a bildge directly wired to battery with float switch. Sorry if there are tons of typos but Im typing as fast as I can!

Just for clarification's sake, that wasn't he with the harrowing ordeal - that was jdeml (post #3374). All the more reason to have a functioning auto bilge pump. Maybe even two.
