Rub rail mounted docking lights

Recommended Posts

Mrwick    66

What I love about boat show season is checking out all of the manufactures latest and greatest ideas and features.....MasterCraft did something cool this year on the new Xstar.  They installed rub rail mounted docking lights.....not sure if this is new in the industry, but it is the first time I’ve seen it.  I had to have this upgrade so here we go!

BTW @Mrwick, once you get on the water you'll have to take picks and post up.

That's one of the main reasons why I am no longer a supporting member. I hang around because of some of the original members here I consider friends.

Well you better stay tuned, H......I have more cool mods coming......guys on here corrupt my head with good ideas, I ordered material to build surf racks Friday, I’m drawing up an “over engine” storage compartment and will start building soon, and finally will start the install of my GSA when it ever gets here.

Nice I used to do the same thing . If you look through the how to section you can check out some of my previous mods. We buy a new boat every 2 years now so only mod we do anymore is the stereo.  Guessing you work construction? You look comfortable with a zip wheel.

Lol.....I’m an mechanical engineer that spent my first 17 working years as a toolmaker/machinists.  It pains me to buy add-ons when I can build something better.....God bless our dealers on here, but it also hurts my ego having to take anything into them to fix unless it’s a warranty item......I guess you can say I’m a “hands on” kind of dude.....

I look forward to seeing the GSA mod, install video/pics since I plan to add that to my boat as well.

Wavemakers discontinued the WaveControl....I emailed customer support and they said that in the next month or 2 the will be selling the GSA system as-is and wont bring the WaveControl system back since they dont sell enough to keep supporting it. Prefer to buy from them simply cause I can get a discount tho I need to call GSA and see if they will do 10% or anything like that. I missed the black friday sale and dont want to wait till next year to add the GSA.

Wavecontrol is just a stripped down version of the GSA system...GSA has Bluetooth connectivity and its own app so you can control it from your phone or tablet as well as the wired controls......I will make sure to do a good job documenting the install and results since there is very little info on this forum on the GSA system.

Very nice. Props to you for having the balls to take the cut off wheel to the front of the boat like that.  Looks factory

Lol....this was seriously one of the easiest upgrades I have done.....that is, once you get past cutting and drilling holes in a perfectly good boat! 😊

Where did you purchase the lights?  Are they the ones from ITC Marine?

Those turned out awesome and would look good on my S226 :)

How do you like the ITC's at night? I have some traditional Innovative Lighting dock lights but not super bright. Wondering about adding these on as "high beams"

They are awesome.....they are pretty bright and work great for getting off the water after a late evening set....I don’t think you will be disappointed if you add them.

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
