  1. Added the flag holder. This one was a PITA. Lots of custom work here and scary hole drilling. She came out pretty good and very strong. I may powder coat it black down the road but for now that job is done.
  2. You bet. Sorry I didn't take pictures of the install. I know that gentleman in the link I provided took some photos. Here is the part. It's sold on Uptice.com https://uptice.com/collections/marine-products/products/tower-side-pull-points-supra You will have to cut about a 1/4 inch off the bolt but other than that works fine. 1. If you have four speakers, you'll have to remove the bottom one on each side. 2. Then you remove the tower skin on the sides (about 10-12 little bolts) 3. That will expose 4 large threaded bolt holes that fit the side tow point bolt.
  3. I was doing the side tow points but I'm also working on mounting a flag holder. I love old glory and she has to fly on this boat too! It's really challenging to get a flag holder to mount right on this tower the way I want it. I've seen some put them on the surf racks but I want to be able to fly it even when I'm surfing. I'll see if I can find the link to that thread for the side tow point.
  4. Here are some more interior pics. I'm not missing a speaker, I'm working on some custom stuff I'll share later. I did add the side pull points that another user on this forum installed. Thanks to him for suggestion!
  5. sweet ride, just ordered some nets. Where did you get the tow points for the board racks? those look great and are super functional
  6. Wish the season wasn't over now but I'll get her in the water to run her around. Thanks to the Northwest Boat Sports folks!
  7. Yep, I think I'll be adding a plate down there. I don't pull a tube much but if I did, I'd want to know it wouldn't yank out. Thanks for the responses!
  8. Sorry to hear that you had that happen. Unfortunately, most boats require 3k pounds plus ballast to put out a good surf wave. That part is not as big of an investment as it sounds and it pays big dividends. I just sold a 2014 B52 23 and it was slapped with 5k of ballast. I'd match that surf wave up against any boat. I recommend talking to Don (who once owned my boat). Sorry for the trouble but with a little time and incremental investments, you can transform that boat to a surf machine! I've surfed behind a 14 tomcat that had a GSA and extra ballast and it was awesome. Hang in there!
  9. Ya, I traded her, they did pretty well by me with the trade. I pick up the new boat on Oct 15th. They are asking a crazy price for it. The owner told me that they have never seen a boat as custom as mine/ ours (Don!). Lol. It was hard to drive away.
  10. Hi everyone, I have a new shaft that I no longer need. I was keeping one as a spare and now have a 22 Alpha on order. I know these can be hard to come by so if someone out there gets into a bind, we can work it out.
  11. That's really good to hear! I'm curious how it is reinforced as well.
