I have 2000 Elite V and it currently has a manually adjustable wake plate\cavitation plate. I have been researching the bennett x-14 hydraulic wake tab, but have been told by a dealer that it cannot be installed? Any help would be appreciated.

my dealer has repalced the manual with a hydraulic. IT can be done but requires some fibergalass work. They dont mount the same so you end up with some extra holes in the boat

That will work fine. In your opinion was it worth putting the plate on? I have an even split with skiers and boarders. 2 prefer skiing and 2 prefer boarding. If I had more $$$ I would get a newer boat, but this will have to do for now.

I would have never owned a Elite V/Huuricane/Lightning/Airwarrior with out the plate. The boat likes to porpuse when the plae is up so when wakeboarding you trim it up all the way when skiing or jusr going fast give it some trim. So yes it is worth it IMHO

M&M Watersports, Springville Utah. I sounded negative about the dealer but I think they were just playing it safe. Other than the wake plate, they have been great. By the way, on the picture of the link you sent me, was that a bennett trim tab (X14 Tab) as well?

M & M is a great dealer!....they might be trying to incourage you to trade it in

I have a 2001 elite v and had it installed afterwards. It was a bit pricey but worth every penny being able to automatically trim the boat and shape the wake a bit. It also gets rid of the porpoising especially when it is loaded down with ballast.
