    I'm still undecided. Problem is, I can't do a similar proof of concept with tabs, so it would be jumping in pretty blind. Wish I knew someone with a 2016+ Mondo.

    What if you mocked up a system that clamped onto your swim deck and the center wake plate? Basically create a new temporary transom. Obviously don't move the wake plate once in the water, but that would give you a platform to mount a wooden tab on each side to manually adjust with a turnbuckle or even set it with a angle brace at the house and not adjust once on the water - it would at least give you an idea of how it would displace the water. Might be a lot of work to get that test up and running though...

    I could draw up some concepts in CAD if you're interested. I think I have the transom of my OBV modeled already when I was designing my surf platform. Yeah I know, I'm a nerd...

    Wicked wake surf out of Atlanta is/was doing the platform mount surf gates. Not sure what all brands they do. I had them on my Axis A22. You could either use the ratchet straps and turn buckles or through bolt it to the platform. You only have one on at a time.

    That is exactly what I did.

    So I tried this gate with the 2419 prop and it really didn't make much difference. I also made a smaller gate face, and tried it out as well.

    Both gates were buried under the water at the back of the boat, so I'd have to make it taller to be more effective. I don't want it to stick up past the swim when closed, so I think a gate system is out unless I raise the swim step.

    Overall, the Nauticurl made a far better wave and didn't tax the boat as much.

    Do you have any photos and where you purchased it. I have a 07 outback LSV and use a rhonix wedge which is a overpriced POS. Want to install a powered gate system over the winter. Thanks Dean.
