    Dock line Snubbers

    Ah I thought we were talking snubbers for use on the dock not anchoring. That’s why I suggested the BABZ fenders as they take out a lot of the shock.

    Or you can use your phone and the Sirius/XM app. Mine works great on the water.

    xm radio antenna install

    So when you mode over to XM, it displays the receiver's ID number? I ask as its odd for the manufacturer to install the optional receiver and not the antenna and just check the box on the build sheet that the boat has satellite radio. The little SAT pucks that come with car kits are hit and miss on boats. Worth the money and time to mount a marine SAT antenna through the deck somewhere. Usually just in front of the windshield, port side.

    Slalom Ski Handles

    Yeah you don't need to overthink this. It's personal preference, I use a Radar rope with a slightly curved handle (it's what I like). Just go into any shop and try out the handle you like, buy that.

    xm radio antenna install

    thanks for the info
  8. Thanks! Other side has depth finder so it makes it kind of symmetrical with it there.
  9. That's a great location, @formulaben. Nice install.
  10. Me too. I found that the integrated XM receivers were mostly garbage. I use this Media center for Bluetooth and an XM Commander receiver. Works great and allowed me to utilize the old DIN pocket for storage.

    Dock line Snubbers

    Not really. Just part of the regulations. I get 10' total width. I use 4 poles, but considered adding 2 midship this year for 6 total.

    xm radio antenna install

    Drill baby drill! The hole will be mostly hidden by the antenna. I tried the hide the antenna for XM but it just plain works better exposed. Once you mount it, just plan to never remove it. I mounted mine in an area that has Seadek so if I ever wanted to remove it, (I wont) I could just replace that piece of SeaDek to cover the small hole up. Now my antenna for my GPS Maps is under the helm and seems to work fine that way.

    Slalom Ski Handles

    I agree with @oldjeep. It's a very personal preference sort of thing. I don't care for the curved handles. I much prefer the straight ones. While not as small as @ahopkinsVTXtiny hands, I'm not in XL territory so the smaller .940 diameter handles work well for me. Best advise I would give you is to go to a proshop somewhere and put a couple in your hands tied to something low and get a good lean on and see what feels best. Be sure to wear your gloves when you do so.
  15. Yeah, the automotive style caps with the aluminum contacts really corrode. Especially in boats like mine where the pylon drains onto the distributor. The caps with the brass contacts seem to last a lot longer.

    Slalom Ski Handles

    It all depends on you. I buy the thickest handles that I can find, the small bars are hard to hold onto when you wear XL-2XL gloves. Skinny handles for small hands. Some folks like curved handles and others like straight bar. Personally I use a 13" Radar antiroll straight handle with a 1.062 handle. Beyond that you need to decide if you want an anti roll handle or the standard bar with holes in it style Next handle will be a Masterline with a 1.183 handle. https://www.masterlineusa.com/collections/handles/products/masterline-super-spectra-anti-roll-custom-handle?variant=371798

    Slalom Ski Handles

    If it's your first time using a handle, any one of them will do. You'll have nothing to compare to or have been used to previous. I say, get the one you like the looks of the best. Smaller diameter, as slight as it is, will be easier to hold on to.

    Slalom Ski Handles

    I need to get a slalom ski handle. I know a lot of answers will be based on preference and feel, but I have never slalom skied before so I don't have anything to compare to. I am not skiing any courses either so that shouldn't play into my decision. This is also the reason why I don't need a high end handle and rope combo. One of my questions or suggestion is without being able to get a feel for it in person, how do I blindly decide between 12" or 13" length and also grip diameter? This handle only offers .940" or 1" diameter. I was looking at this for the handle. https://www.masterline
  20. oddly enough the plugs looked fairly decent and nothing standing out for cyl 7. I will say this cap and rotor though....very glad i changed. trouble getting image in here but the corrosion was just dusting out with every terminal covers.

    Our new Axis A22!

    Beautiful. Nice work. We also bought our '19 A22 from Darren and Zac and couldn't be happier. We mostly launch at Sammamish (Lake Axis), so hope to see you out there!

    Any way you can drop a mooring buoy?

    xm radio antenna install

    Anybody out there install their xm radio antenna, I'm interested in adding xm radio to my 2020 A22. all I need is an antenna , the rest is already installed. I dont want to drill any holes, I'm looking for some installation ideas
  24. You're welcome. The bluetooth media center I installed is located where the remote was located beneath the helm almost directly under the key. I don't have a picture of my boat and it's still hibernating, but if you look below the key in this photo that's the location I used. I actually plan to move the sub to the footwell.

    Dock line Snubbers

    Thanks to everyone! I can't use mooring whips and I'm not parallel to the dock. I stern in. (As you can sorta tell in my avatar). Kinda of a bummer you've had bad luck with the snubbers. I assume you mean the BABZ bumpers? I don't have any issues with hitting other boats. Knock on wood. I had that thought as well actually. I'm in about 5' of water and the line attachment point is about 3' above the water line, so that's a huge moment arm on the dock pole at the lake floor. It hits pretty hard with rollers come in so this year I wanted to add some absorption.
  26. Hi mate, thanks for your reply, I hadn't thought of running a bluetooth media centre, do you have a picture of where you've mounted the media centre control? as for your sub did you consider mounting one in the drivers footwell?
