    Well I'm actually thinking of leaving all the mounting stuff as is and having them mill off the top part and reform it. Possibly even get it rounded off. Nothing's going to happen until after the holidays at the earliest though.

    That would be the easiest because of the way it tapers. The taper would be too low and it would not sit in the mount correctly anymore.

    Dropped off at a machine shop today - mine is solid and heavy. They are going to machine it off from the top down and regroove it for a rope, keep the existing bolt holes. Also fixing a board rack that had a disagreement with the with the gate when I was backing in a while ago...

    Sweet how much are you taking off it? I might be interested in this for the Mojo.

    About 6-7" is coming off the top. It will only rise up above the sundeck a few inches and then have the top smoothed over. So instead of a shin breaker it will be only be a toe breaker now.

    Default Ski pylon solid? Thinking about shortening

    What ever happened with this Berg.

    I don't think that you would have a problem with the rope because of bow rise.

    bow rise would be present in towing a tube, but with a waterski, your boat is typically planed out at 32-36mph. with a skier that cuts hard and can touch shoulder, would the rope now drop far enough to catch the sunpad or rear corner of the boat, or possibly just drag acorss the sunpad on the edges?
