Extended pylons don't do much to get crap off of the floor. They are nice if you don't want to decapitate any rear seat passengers though.

I have one. But I don't have a board rack as I frequently remove the extended pylon and store it in the bow. Plus I have a bimini that we use a lot - I had a zipper installed in that to allow use with the pylon. Now...add a board rack to the equation and it gets more complicated every time you want to install the flyhigh, and/or the bimini. Not to mention you have to deal with the rope, and make sure it's clearing the boards, which are now awkwardly above the bimini. Flyhigh makes a rope extender, but that's just another thing to deal with.

Getting crap off of the floor is what a tower does well, but they are not cheap and then there is the whole PS190+tower debate.

I'm sure there are other opinions to come, this is just mine from my experience.

I've got what you need.. It's not a fly high pole though.. It's a home made ext pylon that slips over the existing one and uses a bow strap.. I built 2 board racks on it.. Will hold 4 wake boards, or 2 wake boards and a knee board.. Bad thing is its about 45lbs and would be awkward to ship.. And is kinda hard on the original pylon because it scratches it. I'll go take a pic to give you an idea of what it is

Forgive my horrible storage room wall.. It's a rent house..

The pole would be cheap, and with some sanding and painting it could actually look pretty good

Maybe if you sandblast it and have it powder-coated it would get the blood and any other DNA off from the kid who hung on it scratching at the wall to get off of it.
