Post 02 X30, Cooler and anchor tie off locations

After you have spent the day surfing and wakeboarding. Now you just want to relax for a little bit. You throw the anchor. Where do you tie it off at, bow eye with a fancy knot? After you have that done. You reach for a cold one. Where do you reach, behind the drivers seat?

Also, has anyone added cleats in the bow or made some cooler storage contraption? Seems like there should be a better way.

Thank you in advance for you help.

tie to the bow eye, I bought an igloo marine cooler and place it on floor center towards back seat. seems to work pretty good.

I put bumpers and trash can behind the driver seat

We put a small igloo marine cooler behind the drivers seat. I carry throwables that double as a seat cushion when we are packed. I fashioned a strap to hold a trash bag that hangs off the tower leg. The trash bag tucks in behind the cooler in the space under the gunwhale. We don't anchor, but I would tie to the bow eye. A simple bowline should suffice for a knot. Or you could use a quick connect like you find on most towables.

Never understood why wake boat mfg did not put more, larger and better placed cleats on boats.

If you want to make anchoring and rafting easier, I would install a single 8" pull up cleat horizontal between the backrest and nav light.
A 6" slim line on each side should also work. They do that with some current boats.

Find someone with almost any fiberglass skills to reinforce underneath and "peanut butter" in an aluminum plate like people do when adding a tower.

Cooler style and size are dependent on how much you need.
I have found the Igloo Cube to be space efficient and more comfortable to sit on with the higher sides than a standard cooler. I don't like the wheel models because it is too much of a space waste on the boat but I don't have to haul it very far and I am not a puss.
