I ordered these from Heidi at Atlanta Marine, and I couldn't be happier! They are such nice racks, and AM has top notch Customer Service!

Unfortunately my cordless drill died during the install, so I was only able to get 1 side installed (and half at that, I still need to drill the 2nd hole in the tower) but you get the idea.

Here are some pics, so far:

I've got a little work to do with regard to mounting the tower speakers, as right now the racks can not rotate all the way in, as they hit the speakers. I might move them to the top oval bar this winter, or something, I dunno.

Have to chime in with nice racks too but, I thought the swivel mounted directly to the tower. Is the swivel arm mount something specific with Moomba?

Those look awesome. I wonder how the would work with the Z5 Rack. I think I just found my new mod.

I had these on my XLV, unfortunately they are pretty useless if you have tower speakers mounted across the tower and mount the rack on the crossbar that the OEM racks mount. Reason they are useless is look in his pics, with rack halfway turned in imagine a board in the rack, it will hit the speakers if speakers are mounted traditionally (note - his speakers appear to be mounted to the top crossbar so the board MIGHT hit the speaker before fully turned in). So if you get these for an LSV or XLV AND you have tower speakers, I would mount them on the lower crossbar. I got mine at dealer cost $695 shipped through a good source, however, my dealer wanted $1,149 plus tax and wanted to charge me shipping. They are quality racks though. Fit and finish are great. Keep in mind his tower is an Outback, towers for LSV and XLV are different deminsions.

Isn't this rack mounted to the cross bar and not the tube?

That is correct, it mounts to the cross bar.

Regarding the swivel:
-It does not rotate 180* because of my tower speaker mounting location, I imagine that if I moved the speakers to be mounted on the top bar that they would be able to rotate fully.
-The 90*-100* that it does rotate is perfect for us, makes getting boards in and out way easier, and also eliminates the rack from intruding into dock space.

They suit my needs perfectly :)

and probably all cross bars on the towers are the same size ?

Is that each or per pair?? Either way, that's insane!

Yes, there is a set of Roswell tines that have a surf slot and a wakeboard slot. I have one set of the SI Surf tines on my swivel racks. I can get a Grindwater Mauka in it nicely.

Al, that was for pair but you're right. If I didn't get them for $695 no tax and no shipping, my price through my dealer would have been $1325 (that's over $650 per rack)
