I am sure that I have found this mentioned on this forum a couple of times, but after an hour of searching I cannot find it...

What is the tower diameter on the 2005 XLV? Going from memory, I think that it is 2-3/8", but I am too far from my boat to go out and confirm. I want to order new racks today to get them for the weekend. Could someone kindly confirm?

Also, is it round, or off-round? I am ordering Comptech racks (one for hydrofoil, one for wakeboards).

Thanks in advance.

I guess that I should say that these racks are the swivelling type and will have to be mounted on the rear support arms. These might be a bit smaller than the main tubing. I am not sure.

Almost a 100 percent that it is 2.25. I'll be around mine tommorow and can double check.

Thanks for responding. It turns out that there is no chance of getting delivery until next week, plus I managed to get a crew going for tomorrow. Chances are that I can make the measurement myself and make the order in time for delivery in a week.

19cm circumference -> 2.381" diameter. The closest in inch fractions is 2-3/8 (2.375), so I'll go with that.

Yep. 2-3/8" clamps fit perfectly.
