    Default Adding Walkthrough

    Has anyone added the walk through like the 2020 Max? I was thinking about adding to my 2019 instead of buying a 2020. I feel thats all I like more about the 2020.
    Thanks

    I think you would enjoy the new transmission ratio as well.

    The walk over isnít a big deal. And itís a kneecap crusher.

    It would be easy enough to add just some HDPE or fiberglass and a strip of gatorstep.
    You'd need to reupholster the cushion as well.
    Your dealer may be able to order you the cushion with the step but they would have to trick skiiers into it as I doubt they would allow it since they want you to buy a new boat.

    Is it a big difference? Ratio that is.

    Good idea and good point! mmmmmm this is a tricky debate. Been looking at the 2020 hard, so now I have a lot to think about. I do like the new 2021 screen, so my thought was to maybe wait till next season and pic that one up. I like buying year old stuff...Thanks for your comments

    To me it is. You run a much longer prop and they run so smooth.

    I have a 16 x 15 on my 450.

    How do you like that prop compared to the others you have run with your 450s? Any "Gel Burn"?

    Just curious, what crushes the knee caps? Is something raised on the back hatch on top of the gator step? I have not been on a MAX.
    I thought the walk through was the strip on the back engine hatch and the section on the back seat.

    I'm with MJH on this as what impacts the knees other than the max being so tall that you have to use knees to get up on the sundeck.

    atx not having a walkover was one of the big reasons we didn't ink on that boat in 2020. our first supra didn't have(wasn't a thing back then), last 3 did and we wouldn't buy without it. saves on vinyl.

    to the OP- the MB we shopped in phx had walkthru on the back sundeck but not the rear seat. speaking with the dealer, they had several customers that they ordered the nautty seat step and had a local upholstery shop install it. said it was only a couple hundred and would do it for us if we ordered new. sure rear sundeck is same theory.

    I put a thin little protective plate on the boat to protect from burn. This was the exact propeller I used on my SL. With the exact same drivetrain. I love the way it runs.
