    Default Rope Tender

    Does anyone know where to buy a rope tender, I read somewhere on a forum about a simple device that keeps your ropes from hanging down after someone falls and prevents your rope from getting hung on the board racks.

    yep, get a wakejak! it's the next greatest thing to speed control for keeping the peace on the boat, IMO.

    Direct bolt on to any tower.

    It's a piece of machined aluminum that you attach with bolts/wingnuts around the tow swivel point. There is a small threaded rod attached to this and then you screw carbon rods onto that.

    I was able to set up a group buy before, so if others are interested, please post and I will try and set something up again.

    I also have the Wakejack and it is ok. I use it for a camera mount but also keeps the rope off the boards. My biggest issue is how I have to mount it on the tower it moves from side to side when someone carves out hard. This is because my tow swivel point moves to save the rope so no matter how much i crank down on the wingnuts the tow swivel allows the whole unit to move. Makes a really bad noise when it moves also. If you are looking to keep the rope up this does it without an issue.

    Hmmm, with the v2 and the Bimini not sure the hole is big enough for both the pylon and the wakejak mount.
