older versions just two bolts/clamping down on the pipe, when you tighten it bends the steel tube... they are loose and if you hit good they move etc..
has anyone actually measured width of these on a trailer when they are bent "outward" everyone says we cant have a wider boats but nearly all guide poles are wider than allowed.. so if they are removable why not make 6-10" wider boat, 6-12" wider boat would be fine. thats only 3-6" per side which most guide poles stick out anyways! just make the guide poles removable and your fine.. come on jack! 27lsv 1ft wider!
I think they can get away with guide poles that are removable being beyond 8' 6"... because you can remove then, drive, put them on to launch. Little harder to sneak a boat that is wider than 8'6"... some states are stricter than other on the rules.Edited by gregtay
As stated in my first post I was already committed to purchasing the 21 VLX at the time of that posting. Now several months into ownership of the boat I have had the opportunity to try this out myself and indeed it works surprisingly well with just cancelling the Alarm when it pops up. Admittedly as both my wife and I are now in our 60s the boat does not get a lot of use in this mode but it does work and works well and creates a really small wake around 30 where my wife likes to ski. I love this boat for the surfing and the kids and grand-kids really enjoy the big wake for Boarding.

Our 2020 trailer has 2 quick release pins on each guide pole.
older versions just two bolts/clamping down on the pipe, when you tighten it bends the steel tube... they are loose and if you hit good they move out etc.. they are all TOO SHORT even for most shallow ramps. they need to be taller IMO, add some 2" PVC pipe and make taller otherwise there is a good chance you can damage by catching the guide poles under the rub rails!!! you either have to put in shallow to keep guides above rub rail and power the heck up onto trailer or keep pushing on and having trailer back up a ft or two at a time but then the nose gets lower than the winch/front.. someone needs to make rollers on these trailers that retract down after your on! not as big of issue on 22ft and under but these bigger boats are a PIA with trailer and the bunks only give you about 0.25" inch clearance on the chines each side so when you pull out you have to be PERFECT or go back in and drop between chines... seems they could widen the bunks up on trailer another 1" to give you a bit of working room!

Nitrous I have Rev 10's fixed clamps if you want to PM me your number. Only used 2 outings before I got rid of my boat this summer.
what does the foot area (dont know the correct term) in front front of the drivers seat look like? My 18 T23 has a removable panel (not solid fiberglass). I recreated the panel and mounted a ported box on the back side of it using EPVC. Only used 1/2", but would use 3/4" or a stiffer material if i have to do it again.
