Try 10.2-10.5 and see if your wave gets bigger. And the video looked like 12-14, or even faster, at least compared to the videos from my boat.

 

I always appreciate a second set of eyes on my setup. I'll double check the speeds and try to get down to 10.5. I'm a little skeptical that the wave will wash out. Maybe some bow weight will allow me to get a slower speed.

 

Thanks, I'll continue tweaking. This is far from a done deal.

Great job all you guys with adding this to the centurions.

I doubt you'll be seeing any manufacturers besides Malibu selling this. Malibu has a patent pending on it. Other OEMs would have to work out a royalty deal with Malibu.

You can usually buy locally at sign stores. I actually have some I was going to fab a piece for the Enzo and give it a shot. Nice thing with this is you can use your router and round over all of the edges and make them smooth so no worries about someone getting hurt.

I was just looking in to the exact same thing. I think you will want thicker than 1/4" just to be safe. I'm thinking I'll try 5/8" or maybe even 3/4".

 

Yeah, I was a little torn on thickness. I want to be able to melt it and bend it on the bottom though, to contour with the hull on the bottom a bit though, as I think it will help smooth out the trough of the wake. So I wanted a thickness that I could bend and get a nice tight corner with. It feels pretty strong though. If it fails, I'll get the thicker stuff. It was only 7 bucks a sheet, I can afford to waste some lol.

 

I'd love to help mod an Enzo. Anyone in the Raleigh, NC area with an Enzo want to let me frankenstein their pooh? lol

You should be able to work that material like wood and even weld it together like metal.

Testing with additional weight in the boat. The wave gets impressive when both the rub rails are in the water. Turning the boat to the port side not so good with the gate out.

We had around 1200 port, 500 star, and 200 center. The boat seemed to ride level with the gate out. The nose of the boat was up higher then I like but the angle on the gate seemed to add some downward force to the starboard side of the boat. Moving some weight up front brought the nose back down along with some of the wave height. If we moved a couple of people on the back lockers the boat could not get up over 11MPH at full throttle. The memory card on the camera was full by this time but the wave was the bigest and longest I've seen on this boat. The angle of the boat put both of the rub rails under the waterline in the back. Only try this on calm water if you like your boat...

thanks! yeah we we're riding pretty low with 500 on each side. I can only image what you looked like there. Wave looks great though. I'll get back to work and testing on mine this week.

Wow, there's virtually no spray, but the lip looks awful. Switching sides that quick and easy is amazing though.

Looking forward to any updates on these projects going into the new season...especially those of you working on the old lighting hull.(I have a 2004)

 

I want to add a surf gate this spring, but only have a one shot to get it right since I keep my boat in the water all season.

 

Any and all details (measurements, materials, methods, etc.) would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!
