    In a few days Iíll be posting up an install of 720ís piggybacking off the stock rear bags like Boonejeepin and some others have done. Total cost of around $600 give or take. Iíll post a link to that in this thread once I finish it up.

    As far as wakemakers goes: I was debating on ordering their kit for $1000, but they refused to send me install instructions without ordering the kit first, which motivated me to do it myself and save some money. The tech guy told me no holes have to be drilled on a 2018, but I donít see how that is possible. I still ordered everything from them for my install so no hard feelings or anything like that.

    Wonder if the 1280ís will work with the rear storage trays offered on the 2019?

    Heck yeah post up as detailed instructions, pictures and videos as possible! Their tech guy wouldnít/couldnít give me much information on price difference from the 2018 to 2019 exact fit bags other than the 19ís were for g6 pumps. He also didnít have an explanation when I said I thought g6 was an option on the 18ís as well, so he wouldnít/couldnít even tell me if the 18ís work with g6. Super nice guy though, so no hard feelings on my end! I just want to know what Iíd be paying $500 extra dollars for!

    The ones I saw at the show didn't have the pass through (that I saw)

    But for other models they finally did reinforce the rear panels! No need anymore for the wakemakers support kits.

    I just came from the seattle show, and from the boat I saw, holes will need to be drilled.

    NOW... They do the exact same thing on the Makai where there are ballast bags under the middle seats. I wonder if a moomba dealer could put this together or if one could get the parts from fly-high?

    You would need hose, clamps, flanges (to do it pretty) and of course the bags. The one question I would have is where the bag would exhaust?

    You ďTĒ it into the factory vent line. Iím adding a check valve for each vent as well. Iíll cover all that when I get it finished. I even got flanges to finish off the holes through the stringer. Iíll put up a parts list as well (got everything from wakemakers except the flanges which came from eBay).

    Yep, agree. Glad they made them....but for $500 easily just add the 40x20x20 720s and have essentially the same thing. Just be smarter than me and wear a mask when drilling the fiberglass....I didn't realize that stuff gets everywhere when drilling the pass through wholes and I can't imagine its great for the lungs.

    I guess it isn't the prettiest way to exhaust it, but I just put hose from the top of the bag (with a 90 deg elbow quick disconnect) and spliced it into the rear exhaust with a y fitting. Also added a check valve after they spliced (distal to the Y) since the stock system didn't have any check valves.

    Are you sure you want a check value? how do you get air back in the bag to deflate it?

    All overflows from the rear bags should have a check valve. It helps the pumps suck the bags empty and flat. You donít want air getting into them and causing an airlock in the pumps.

    BUT! You canít put a check valve on a front bow bag that piggy-backs of a hard center tank! If you do, you will try to oil can the tank and damage it.
