    Default Hide away ski pylon

    2006 Mobius LSV

    The '06 and I think even the newer Moombas have the extra ski pylon sticking right up out of the engine compartment. If you have kids (and even if you don't), you probably have realized the health hazard this pole can be.

    The Supras have a nice hide-away style that I think twists and drops down into the engine compartment so that the top is flush with the compartment cover when not in use. Does anyone know if something similar can be purchased aftermarket and added to the Moomba?

    I have seriously considered just removing the thing all together since it rarely gets used, but I don't really want the unused hole that will remain.

    Someone maid their own. I do not know who it was but i think it was posted about a month or two ago. I cannot be sure since time has been flying by. I do agree that it would be helpful to have it drop down.

    I have read parts of the book that EdG quotes from. i too anxiously await the arival of the retractable ski pylon, though not enough to remove it in the waiting.

    my kids like to swing from the "tarzan rope" shortened T handle surf rope. it really hurts when they hit the pylon.

    Please SC or some other genius, help this important matter come to pass!!! Razz and Newty, and others, are pretty smart, maybe they will make it?

    hey Ed, don't hijack the thread with freudean quirks. let's get razz and newty to build a retract pylon for our moombas, nothing weird, this is the family section.

    maybe TN boarder can you make the retractable pylon?

    why can't you use the supra part?
    mine is nothing more than a round tube welded to the bottom of the metal plate that the engine cover latches to. the actual pylon is a round metal piece with a bolt in it to swivel around and stay in the up position.

    if the metal bracket is the same width and mounted in the same spot on the moomba and supra, would be a matter of welding in the bracket and done..

    i understand it is not the same. would one of our lurking dealers on here let us know for sure? if you want to remain anonomous, send a pm to someone for you, we always hear things from a reliable little bird.
