Stacy, I'll let you know what the canal depths are when I find out.
I'm not gonna be the 1st to try it :)
I haven't been able to get into Lake Louisa (where the jamborees were held) for about 4...

Clermont chain of lakes has risen dramatically within the last week.
People living along Lakeshore now have water under their docks and the water is lapping at the airplane ramp.
Joe - you may want to try painting a scrap piece of hdpe before the actual gate - be real interesting to see how paint sticks to that stuff.
I'm looking forward to seeing yours installed. Since I...

I use the pylon in the sundeck for a skier and the hook in the grab rail for a tuber
stick a plastic cap in it.

The art work on those soulcraft boards looks very, very familiar. Looks pretty much the same as the octopus on the board Mike Walker made for the Moomba/Supra Jamborees.
Have any idea if it is...

Joe, looks good!!
Bet your anxious to get it wet.
I'll admit it - after a lot of research, I'm thinking this is really cool and I wanna make/get one.
those of you with the surf gates and the longer waves....

awesome Joe - thx.
I didn't realize you had made a ghetto gate - could you post pictures of yours - or post a link to photos.

any idea what the dimensions of these cutting boards are and what material they are made of?
09-27-2014, 05:51 AM
yes, I saw that.
Probably styrofoam core (foam rubber is rather heavy) with a fiberglass shell.
$75 worth of material, selling price of $600
I'm in the wrong business!

that thing has got to be pretty light or the Velcro won't hold it.
Velcro definitely would not hold a wood wedge for very long.
More I look at pictures, the more I think that thing is foam...

price on the Velcro wake shaper is $600.
wonder if that thing is just a hunk of foam rubber with some type of epoxy coating.

Velcro does come in many colors and the adhesive comes off fiberglass without the need of chemicals. It's like those fake Buick stick-on hood vents you can get at auto parts stores.
I think the...

swim noodle and/or weather stripping and cut the gate square - excellent ideas!!
this thing then could be cut wider, mount in center and be flipped for use on both sides.
Think were on to...

or make the blade 2x as wide and have the hull cutout a mirror image on the one end. Move the mount to the center line of the blade.
Nah, on second thought that wouldn't work - I like your idea. ...

houses look familiar - you near Hudson?

"I will try it and report back with my findings"
that would be awesome.
I'm sure if you can make the gate equal height from the mount in the center, it should work on both sides of the boat.
09-25-2014, 05:35 AM
is it possible to cut the gate symmetrically (shape of hull in center) so it can be used on port and starboard side?
