Wedge issue

Recommended Posts

DougsBoat

I have a new 2019 Axis T22 with 4 hours on it. I have noticed that when I am skiing or cruising my manually operated wedge is catching water even when i have it is in the up/stowed position. This seems like a problem. Does anyone know if this how it is designed to work or know if I need to have it adjusted?

I’m not doubting you, but generally curious on how you know it’s catching water?

I can't speak to your boat specifically, but before I removed the wedge from my RLXi, it would catch water from time to time as well.

The wedge on my RLx seems to deflect spray.  Not sure I'd call that "catching".

The reason I think it is catching water is because I see water squirting up through the port used to raise and lower the wedge.

Do you have a surf pipe?  That can cause some funky water/spray patterns as well. I'm basically in the same boat and situation this spring as well and nothing looks "normal" to me from behind the boat, but I have a ton of stuff back there that wasn't on my old boat so figure it's all the newness of it.

I do have a surf pipe. That might just be the answer. I will check it out closer. Thanks

i didn't even know you could get a manual wedge in 2019.  you learn something every day.

 

..and as others have suggested, it's likely the pipe

Autoset wedge may still be an option for 2019 Axis and you can still get a surf pipe with it.
