    I used some adhesive weatherstripping from Lowes on the blade edge. I have to find something more permanent but working fine so far.

    Nice looking wave. If you find you want a little steeper wave you can decrease the angle a bit and it will stand up your lip.

    His "gate" comes out directly from the hull. he is running ZERO degrees angle... it's really just a hull extension.

    I think he's talking about the angle of the gate. His system is adjustable.

    So I'm curious - now that you have some run time and success with the ghetto gate, any thoughts if you'll do this all the time moving fwd vs loaded and listing? 50/50 of the time? 80/20 of the time, etc. ?
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    I see myself using the gate the majority of the time. It creates a clean face without explaining to everyone why they need to be on one side of the boat. Using the gate frees my seat from bags and I like that as well.

    I am sure I will load up with a list from time to time just for fun.

    I tend to agree. the convenience factor is awesome. and the increased convenience in the boat and driving the boat is wonderful. And the ability to switch from side to side quickly (well, with my system anyway = under 10 seconds) is great.

    It gets to the point where if you can get a "good enough" wave with all the benefits above, that it makes the overall boating experience better.

    Increase the angle of the gate away from the platform. I'm sure there is a way to shim it out of needed.
