I have the Boss foil racks on my boat. It doesn't affect the tower at all though. However, that SOB is heavy as all get out to hang up there. the only thing i don't like about it is there are no strut mounts or bungees.
Hey Ken, How does that rack keep the SS up in rough water? Seems like the ski would bounce around a bit. I do the same thing as Sean. Skis are in the way, but their safe, don't hit the docks or other people's boats when we tie up, and we can do Around the Boats & hot pickups all day long without them in the way. -- Bill - firstname.lastname@example.org http://airjunky.com
Bill, the 3" pvc pipe actually works pretty well. I did think of putting a strap through the pipe to keep the ski in but it doesn't really move very much. The pipe goes past the seat down to the metal mount. I guess being right where the engine weight is helps. Foil does get in the way while wakeboarding. Blocks the view with the mirror some.
It was just ment to be a temporary solution till I got a tower mount but am still usuing it. I have a few other ideas for a simular design which would avoid the problem of lifting up high, but haven't had the time to build a prototype.
