  2. Yes, the bar at back. The finger in the middle holds rope. My inlaws learned their lesson about using the pylon after getting twacked in the back of the head with a tube rope.

    Dogs & Boats

    Word of caution with the leash. Make sure somebody is holding the leash especially if somebody is in the water getting towed. I was in the water surfing and my wife was driving and hooked the leash up to one of the handles in the boat. I went down and as soon as I hit the water my dog jumped in after me. She had a choker collar on and it was tough getting her out on a short leash. Could have very easily choked her. Everything turned out just fine but some dogs like to jump in after people in the water. This was something I did not expect to happen. I see quite a few people on here posting pictures of their dogs with a leash on so be careful. BTW great looking lab!

    Phase 5 Hammerhead - recieved damaged

    Wait you paid $770 CND w/taxes shipped? That's a great price. I just saw this same board for over 1K CND. I'd get the shop to replace it.

    GSA install?

    Finally got out this afternoon and was able to get in the water and really test the GSA. Water temp was 62°. We had a small crew of three. We only surfed port side with the same weight setup as the test run I posted above. We found that the pocket was smallish and close to the boat with that setup. Ryan warned that I would need more weight to the rear due to some lift from the tabs, so we adjusted and the wave was much better. I was able to surf a larger pocket 10 to 15 feet back and recover from the curl. I'm 280 lbs, but my cousin, 175 lbs, was ripping it a bit further back with tons of push. Bow: 750 bag full on top of seat Mid: 580 bag plumbed in place of hard tank. Cabin: 325 lbs people + 370 plumbed bag under port coffin seat for slight list + 200 lbs lead on floor in front of rear seat. Rear: 300 lbs (150 each side) lead in rear lockers under 1500 in bags (750s) + 400 hard tanks and 900 for floating wedge. I run the base motor 5.7 lcr with acme 2419 prop and rpms at 11 mph were 3300 at 2500 ft ASL. Was impressed with how quickly the boat got to speed and noticed that the wave shaped and cleaned up much faster than running similar weight with a suckgate. Overall, very happy with the install and performance. Can't wait to see how a large crew will affect the wave!

    F-150 for 2019 23 LSV?

    Thanks @eubanks! on an F150 33’s will look pretty nice and will perform like stock. I had that same set up on my 2015 GMC Sierra and it rose really nice. Airbags are a nice option even if you don’t use them every time. On my F250 I put about 10-15# of air in them. On my MC I had to put about 50#, but they really help with the half ton.

    2001 Response LX

    If you can get me a boat like that for $12K USD I'll buy it sight unseen.
  10. Hopefully the kill switch. But if not... There is lots of 20 yr old (well designed ) tech that still works.
  11. @oldjeep you're talking about the bar at the back platform? That bar will hold all that load? Do you have any pictures on how you attach the rope from there?
  12. Off the tow bar in the back. You don't want a tube rope on the pylon or in the back of your head.
  13. I dread asking this but where do you guys tow your tubes from on this model of boat? Is there a way to tow it off of the back or do you use the pylon? We primarily ski but do have to tow a few of the little ones every once in a while.
  14. OP symptoms suggest a bad kill switch. If the engine starts without gauges then look at the MDC. If you have a working MDC it should be fine unless you pump water into it. Once it’s dead, then you can find the fix my own mdc thread, or the replace the mdc thread with something else, or buy a new mdc. It’s 20 year old tech. My second one works fine.

    Water in v drive

    Sometimes it gets in from the vent. I’d just flush it a few times and monitor it.
  17. Howdy All you folks that know more about aluminum finishes and coatings than me. That’s most of y’all. What is the finish on the aluminum plate at the helm? The one with the sport knob mounted to it. There is unsurprisingly a whole industry of choices for finish, anodizing, thickness, etc, etc. I want to know because I’m doing a custom panel to replace the existing one and want it to match. So what’s the technical specification I need to ask for?

  19. GPS speedo is great, but what about temp, oil pressure, etc.? Those old MDC systems are so horrible it hurts me to think about them. Craptastic engineering.

    Phase 5 Hammerhead - recieved damaged

    Have you ever tried to file a claim on shipping damage? It is brutal. BTDT. You have to have pics, get carrier acknowledgement etc. Unless I got the board for 60-70% off (still above dealer cost) I would send it back COD. There are plenty of fish in the sea.

    Phase 5 Hammerhead - recieved damaged

    To those that ask, why repair a new board?, this is why. He can easily get a discount or maybe even a full claim feom the shipping company and they most likely don’t come get it... A little blemish on a board isn’t a big deal as long as the board performs. I would rather be able to shred and piece of plywood, than ride like a donkey’s rear end on a $700 board....
  22. The most likely point of failure is the plastic clip that holds it in, although the push button could fail. Mine started failing last summer, I could push it in and it would work. Literally a ten min job to swap out. you can test by holding g all three wires together as mentioned above. Get rid of the pitot tub speedo system as that will eventually drive water into the mdc. Cut the tubes off and plug them at the stern. Drive by tach or get a gps kit to run the speedo. Link to the replacement part
  23. Ah, yeah if it's what I think it is it's supposed to be tight. I didn't touch it on my cable swap. Yep. Wherever the wheel is (let's say it's pointed at 10 o'clock when going straight) then you note that, then when you stop the boat you put it at the 10 o'clock position so that the rudder is now straight, THEN you remove the bolts so as to disengage the rack & pinion gears, then move the steering wheel to the 12 o'clock position, then tighten the bolts back...now 12 o'clock is straight when driving.
  24. Well I never knew that. Mine is the original kill switch. I know what I'm checking tomorrow. Thank you so much for the tip. Does it require anything special in a kill switch or will a generic kill switch fix it? I'm assuming I can just manually hold it in to test this?
