Here is a picture of my Lip Boating rack. It looks like their website is down, but here is a link to their eBay Store.
As I said in the PM, the only issue is that some double boot skis will not fit because the cross bar is not long enough. I'm going to email to see if I can get a longer bar.
I have sence moved it to the front cross bar.

I use a Skylon ski rack for 8 years now that works well. I have the older model but the fork design is the same. I've had to backfill the O-ring ski protector with silcone as over the years the weight of the ski has mashed the ring down to the metal. You could also relace the rubber with another O-ring. My rack clamped to the cross member bar. I heard the adjustable wake board racks works well but they weren't around when I needed a rack. I know the standard non-adjustable racks won't work as the double bindings get in the way.1998 Mobius

I'm glad I'm not the only one still on the hunt!
Is that a quick release rack? I've checked with lipboating and they don't have just the ski rack anymore. Only ski, wakesurf combo racks??
I think Razzman has the Airboom rack which I am considering as it has notches on the clamp and could put it on the horizontal crossmember. Only issue is it will "bite" and therefore be permanent there!!2007 Moomba Outback - waiting for summer!

H20 Watersports has them as well - I found them on E-bay and I believe they are made by Aerial and are new for $134.99. I believe that these also rotate 360 to fit any angle.09 XLV - Roxy Blue

Monster racks is also an option. I dont have experience with the ski racks but i bought a surf and a wakeboard rack. I did see ski racks on there. They are quick release and adjust to fit any angle.

Rowsell Ski Rack
I've got the Roswell and I'm please with it.
At first I mount it below the board rack but it was always in the way when getting in/out.
Now it's mount above the board rack, near the bend as you want to mount it...
Sorry it's the only pics I found.2008 Outback V black

My son owns an Outback and it has a Moomba tower which has oval rather than round bars. He has been unable to find a ski rack to fit the oval bars so I wanted to give him one for his birthday. I have a picture of his boat, but have only been on it one time. What do you recommend?
