We're going to start a DIY (do it yourself) section of the discussion board so that we can have one place for all the really good threads that contain either DIY projects or DIY product tests. There will be no posting by the public in this topic. The public can only nominate threads and if they are deemed DIY-worthy, a redirect to that thread will be added to the DIY section. That way, the DIY threads will remain in the proper topics (boat DIY stays in Boat section, wakeboard DIY stays in Wakeboard section, etc.) and discussion will continue in those threads, but users will always have a place to go to find links to the best DIY threads without having to search through the entire forum.

What I need from you are nominations for the DIY topic. The first suggestion was Grant's LED test he did a while back (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=702750). What else should be included?

It seems like someone is always asking for some kind of board rack for their garage...

Is there any good threads about winterizing that should go in the DIY?

I think the 'Hot Water Shower' or 'Shower' DIY installs are worth adding... Problem is, there's several to choose from. Here are a couple that seem to be pretty helpful:

I would love to see a DIY winch topic. I know there is a lot of people who have built their own. It would be a great resource database.
