What is this

Recommended Posts

DKD

I have a 2014 23 lsv and on the back it has a metal ring/ button that has a rubber ring in it with a hole in the middle, it's on the left of center above the swim platform what is it. At first I thought it was a cap for the shower option since I do not have that option.

I'll look at mine tomorrow, but it might be for a GoPro attachment.

On a 2016 23 lsv. What about the round metal ring on the rear portside near the cleet. It's about the size of a quarter and has a allen wrench hole on it.

It is indeed the horn for the surfgate transfer.

The audible indicator for the rider when the gate is transferring from one to the other.

The one with an allen wrench fitting has been the engine flush on other wakeboats I've seen optioned with it. Plus these are other brands without surfgate.

It will be a miracle if you ever hear a sound from that hole. It is there for an attachment for a GoPro.

If you disagree, sit on platform while underway and have driver switch gates, place ear next to hole and come back to report findings.

Yes, I think you all are right. It must be a horn although I have never heard it. Our boat is new to us, and we were told when we bought it, that it was a GrPro attachment. I just looked at it today, and it has wires connected to it.

Wires for the GoPro ! (I have no idea, but it would be cool if it hooked up to the dash so the driver could get a view from the camera !)

I don't believe there is a wired set up for a gopro on the market, but that would be cool, as I am constantly switching batteries/ or cameras.....

Newer maliviews have the video input in the dash so you can wire a camera, just not a gopro as the waterproof housing doesn't allow for a sealed wired connection
