Adding autovent to 2017 M235

Recommended Posts

potterm

I was disappointed to find that my boat came without autovent.  (Malibu's 2017 brochure lists it as a standard option).

First question is how helpful is it to not have to burp your bags?  Does it work well?  

Has anyone used the wakemaker autovent add on kit on a M235?  

Can you just use a Y or T into the vent line without a check valve?

All it is a vent line that plugs into the top of the bag.  You can call wakemakers and probably do it for less than $50 in parts.  Yes its a nice feature, I am very surprised your M235 did not come with It?   Have you asked your dealer if they could just add it on for you?

Just have the dealer add it on.  Two hoses and two through hills and your good.  

    I've played on an M a few times, I've actually liked the wake and wave better without PNP added weight.

It's a little more than that. It is a dual line setup with a check valve on one side. It Y's into a single vent line and attaches to the existing thru hull.

See above. I added it to my boat easily. I like how it works.

I always vented my bags through rear cup holders.  Kind of a 23 psalm kinda thing.   My cup (holder) runneth over....

Yes having PNP vented makes life better

Is this what you used?  Can you post a link.  I tried to look for it before from your previous post and didn't find it.  I believe I was missing the word kinetic.

I can't believe I boat that costs 3 times as much as my tige didn't come with vent vines! 

I guess every manufacturer has different priorities.

Thanks to my dealer and malibu it's going too.  I may still try kinetic drip valves.
