    Default Wake Plate...

    On my 02 Mobius I have a lil wake plate but it doesnít move up or down or anything it's just it's just in one spot, strait off the back of the boat. Iím sure this is not good for fine tuning my wake for wakeboarding or surfing...

    So I was thinking about installing something like this... or should I say, asking my local dealer (Rinkerís Boat World) if hey could do it and how much it might cost...

    How much of a difference is it going to make having the wake plate I can adjust???

    Atached is a pic of the plate on my boat now... not a good pic but you can see it...

    What you have is a fixed trim plate which was common on direct drive ski boats, it helps to flatten the wake. Not so good for make a real wake however or surfing. The adjustable unit you show is pretty much exactly like that factory wake plates and will make a huge difference in running attitude and allow you to trim the boat for specific purposes.

    It should help immensely for surfing and shaping as Razz states. You may note that at top speeds the boat will porpoise with the plate up due to the hull change from previous years that necessitated the addition of the plate...especially when barefooting

    It will make a huge difference in shaping the wake. That seems like a good deal from Overtons. Who is going to install it??

    I looked at a boat a couple months ago that would have needed a wake plate so I checked on it. I can tell you that you can find one like that much cheaper than from the seller you mentioned.

    Don't recall exactly. It was just a net search on "trim tabs" I think.

    Seems like a great upgrade to me. Since you're starting fresh I would go electric like Moomba did starting in 09. Easier install and more reliable.
