Ready for the best surf wave available? Look no further. This rare beauty needs a new home after 4 years of making amazing memories and serving many through Wake the World. We are simply "de-boating" as a family, nothing wrong with her. Note...we have a TON of gear should you be a first-time buyer and need additional items.

  2. Turning in my leased F-150, went with GMC. I have several accessories for sale. These will fit multiple years of F-150, please check the respective websites.

I'm located in MI 49080
  3. have a gopro mounted on tower with 15 ft USB cord plugged into USB outlet by helm. It won't charge (or better said, it will drain, in use with boat running. not enough power? Too intermittent with engine on/off? Direct wire to battery a better idea?
  4. Mark, I did look at that but had concerns about mounting it (I don't think it's peel & stick) but more so if it was to fall off a wall, hit an engine, etc. How do you plan to fasten? I'd love to see (hear!) how it turns out. Who knows...maybe 2 levels of soundproof would be better than one!
  5. after I did all the tray surfaces the fit was very tight so I don't think edges would work, plus don't think there'd be much difference. My next add will be some type of 'filler' piece for gap left by the warming tray over the engine bay...quite a bit still get's through.
  6. Have 2018 B52, heater located under observers seat. going to add circulation pump for low rpm, etc help. 1. Where should I locate it? Beside the heater unit under the seat or on a stringer close to the engine? If engine, where is the 'out' from the raptor? 2. Do I need to run a separate circuit (on a relay) or connect to heater unit circuit directly so they activate on same switch. 3. Should I buy the Heatercraft 3.0 GPM pump ($175) or is there another out there that is suitable?
  7. adds 2-3" plus shock absorbing. fits in factory holes: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00144ETZI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. Good call, I didn't notice that. How many sq ft did you end up using? All 36? no. Probably 30 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. seems to be more of temp insulation. “Material copes with noise reduction. But at the same time, the material is not a complete substitute for butyl based sound deadening.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Rode a friends round nose long ocean board. absolutely awesome, fun experience. he's an ocean surfer also and says you want a 9 or 8' longboard round nose style.
  11. I wonder if this was to keep it from impacting the wakeboard wake? Otherwise, why not extend it lower?what’s a wakeboard? #B52surfpig Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
