    My carpet is only 1 year old, but already I want to replace it. (Gel-coat deck (versus carpet) should be an option on the outback.) In any event, I expect to replace all the carpeting in the next...

    9.5" from deck to quick release block.

    The disadvantages of the boom are that I can't leave it on when I pull into the boat lift (nor will the boom swing vertical - the tower is in the way). So, to pull into the lift, I have to remove...

    The boom took 15-30 minutes to install, and now takes about 2 minutes to attach when I want to use it. Those two minutes can be awkward, though, as the boom is heavy.
