    Hmm seems like a good opportunity to for SC to do a little updating on them then, especially since stock bags pop them out.

    I know I added angle iron to mine and they still popped with stock bags, when I upgraded bags I would adjust them while filling and could get lucky, if I end up not selling I have additional bracing along with additional tabs to add at the top to try to rectify….

    One benefit of the WM bag upgrade is losing the storage bins which gives easier access to fix the panels lol !

    I am still very much looking forward to the SL!!

    Not many bites on the Makai right now…. The good news is, that means not many on the SL as well….

    They say patience is a virtue, I dont know, because I have very little…. Almost none!

    I used two sets of the reinforcement angle kits on the panels themselves + removed the factory bottom "channel" and redid it with 3.5" high metal. With the upgraded bags that I also added a drain hose to, they haven't popped out since.


    I did all that after I popped a panel and it smashed into a raw water cooling plastic connector and broke it- ending a beautiful day on the water.

    Where did you get the high metal channel? Online? I am finding its the channels that need to be bigger. I am always annoyed that you spend so much on a boat and then they don't prepare their design for a upgraded bag. This is not a cost thing for them....it's poor design

    Agree - just lazy engineering.

    I got what I needed from a metal supply store. I ran one single 90 degree piece on one side and sections of another 90 degree to create the channel. Could have just ran two whole pieces I supposed but I didnít have enough metal and itís worked the way I did it.

    Iím certainly not an engineer but it worked out. I posted some pics on another thread somewhere , Iíll try and find them.

    Not disagreeing that it couldn't be better, but are they supposed to engineer everything with future modifications by the end user in mind? That would be impossible. I don't see lazy engineering, I see unrealistic expectations by some. You want to add bigger bags, stereo, trash cans or whatever, then do the added work yourself. For me, that's part of the fun.
