maxpower - Was the adjustable wakeplate standard or option on your Outback? Or was it an aftermarket install? - Deerfield

Should extend so the plate is angled down past level creating a slight hook. Could just be the angle of the pic.

I "won" the FAE at the Tampa Moomba Jam in 2008. So, I ordered and installed it. No, "Charlie don't surf". However, it has made the boat extremely quiet and I like that a lot. I did also "win" a wake surf board at the Jam, so when I get the boat loaded with people, we do surf as best as the Outback can.

The wakeplate was one of the options that I did when I ordered the boat, it is from the factory.

Yeah, I have thought about adding a spacer to extend the plate down a little more for a "hook", but I am inheritantly lazy.
