Damn phone with its suggestions. Torture
I blame the public school system.
It is a rare occasion one gets to torcher the children on film without having charges filed.
My daughter made to suffer by dad and uncle.
As you increase the angle of the gate in relationship to the side of the boat it will tend to lift the non surf side of the boat making it list.
A nice side effect .
No, it is bolted on using the platform bracket bolts.
Are you saying it hunts up and down.
If so try adjusting the kva in the settings.
The tabs mount to the transom near bottom.
Impressive, with all that ballast I would have guessed the thing would have been completely submerged.
I like the fact that you can surf with just whatever ballast you have and the wake just gets...
The knob has a set scew. That happened to mine a few weeks back.
Would not call that a geto gate.
I think you will find all the depth is not necessary unless you have the boat listing heavily.
We have found that height out of the water is critical if you...
Sorry it took so long. Remember this is a rough prototype so please keep don't be to hard on the looks. And that my hull looks like crap. ...
I will get you those pictures this evening.
My plan is to replace the pin in the hinge with something removable at some point not sure yet on how I want to do the turnbuckle.
Not a problem. The mount is really crude.
I fabbed it up from some scrap steel a barn door hinge and a turn buckle from tractor supply.

We have stargazer and love it.
I can set almost anyone in the drivers seat and get a great pull.
Best money I have spent on the boat.
Yes it is mounted to thae swim platform bracket.
Flexing and stress over time is a big concern these models are prone to cracking the gel coat just from the stress of people on the platform....
As we continue testing it is possible to get to much weight depending on how the gate is mounted. If you are at the point where the top of the gate is under water at speed its basically pointless....
Nope not a new idea at all just adapted to my hull.
Makes for a surf able wave with no ballast of course the wake gets much better as you ad weight to a point.
The main difference in mine is no...
No lean at all setting still.
As you start to move however the effect of the gate lifts one side....
Cleaning even a marine carb is easy.
Unfortunately most techs now days are push button or more comfortable with a computer controlled system.
This one is with 900 in the center locker 185# driver 175# person in observer seat and 115# person on the rear deck.
I have a crappy video taken from the board on my...
Looking forward to your results.
I built a wake modification system that is working well so far.
That doesn't effect the wake at all at wakeboarding speeds.
My system doesn't require any...

I have a 99 GMC 6.0l that has north of 320k on it.
Not what it once was but still runs great.
The few years off is probably the key to your problems.
The alcohol in the fuel these days is hard on stuff likely gummed up one of the idle circuits.
Not a big deal to clean.
My perfect pass display completely blinds me at night.
So far the only solution I have come up with is to put a towl or my shirt over it.
