Perfect Pass on older boat.

If i can come up with the money, i want to put Perfect Pass on my '85. I don't hear about many carbed boats with PP, does anyone on hear have it with a carbed boat? How easy is the install, does anyone have a picture of the unit?

I've got Digital Pro 6.4 on my 93 with a 351 HO. Install was easy. I just drove it to the dealer, dropped it off, and 3 hours later, it was all done.

But seriously, I don't think there's any more to it with the carb boats than with the fuel injected boats. I'm not really one to tackle projects like this, but the fact that a hole would have to be drilled in the hull for the paddle wheel speedo was enough to let a pro handle it. If you're just doing slalom (no wakeboarding), I'd say go with the PP plus, and not mess with the paddle wheel.

There's a good "how to" on the subject on the malibu boat owners board complete with pictures.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I have installed it on four boats. My old 1995 205 my new 2001 190
My friends 1994 205 another friends 86 american skier. Wonderful instructions with color pictures.

I can not imagine life with out perfect pass.

The old days of hanging out the side of a boat with a stop watch are gone.

I'm thinking of going with the Perfect Pass Cruise for my 88'. Say's it the same great RPM based pull as the Pro system, just with a few less bells & whistels for $675.00.

I've heard the install on the RPM based systems is quite simple. Let us know how it goes.

Pete, I don't have personal experience with the base cruise system, but I remember reading on the old board that the pull was a little less than someone had hoped. I don't know of any reason it shouldn't work fine though. So if you end up getting it, give us a full report on it. If you plan on using it in a ski course though, I'd spend a few extra $$ and go with the Perfect Pass Plus, at least.

I've been looking at the accuski as well. I want something inexpensive, but the auto-pull function on the accuski sounds great. is this available on the PP?

I prefer the perfect pass system. I have operated both and really do like PP.

You may be right, Tex. We are all slalom and it appears that there may be a few features in the Plus that would be quite beneficial on the course. I wonder if I can dig up the old post someplace on the old board. I'll search, and if I find it, I'll post.

I don't think PP has the auto-pullup feature. I've heard both good and bad about it. I've heard accuski gives a good pull though.
