Maximum board thickness for wakeboard clamps

Hey guys, I plan on buying a wakesurfer and would like to put it in the wakeboard racks. Therefor I need to know what the maximum board thickness is the clamps can safely hold.
Unfortunately I can't get to my boat right now, so I would appreciate if one of you guys could take a quick measurement for me. It's a 09 X2 by the way, but the clamps should be identical on other boats.

Thanks in advance

Oh and I got one more question concerning the clamps:

Do the clamps still work if there's a (thicker) wakesurfer in one slot and a wakeboard in the other? I mean will the clamps on the wakeboard still be tight?

On second question, yes.
Now, without going to the boat to measure exactly. I'm gonna say keep it below 1 3/8". I would guess any skim style board would fit.

Thanks for the advice. The board I have in mind (Liquid Force Fish) is 1,5", so I guess it will be tight.... Can anybody provide accurate measurements or does anybody put this board in his wakeboard racks?

I have the fish, plenty of room in my racks.

I don't know if there is and what the difference would be between 09 and 2013
