$475 from your dealer is highway robbery. If the dealer had to drill in your boat then I could see why they are charging so much, but your SSV already has the paddle wheel, so everything else is plug and play. Starting with 2004 models Skier's Choice started installing factory harnesses under the dash specifically for Perfect Pass. You literally just have to plug the harness from PP into the pre-wired harness under your dash.
The most difficult part of the install will be installing the servo motor, which should take you all of 15 minutes. You can install the entire system yourself in under an hour. It is super easy! The cheapest I've seen WBP is from Skier to Skier at around $1050. I think its $1100 from Perfect Pass. Either way, just make sure you tell them the exact year and model of your boat so that they will make sure to wire the system with the correct harnesses to match your boat.
