    The most improvement I've made to my wave was adding the center trim (attitude adjustment) tab. Cleaned up the wave. I cut down the sides of my teak platform, but until I added the tab the top of the wave was just washed out. Here's a post with a picture comparing my two swim platforms:

I bought some 3x2 alum tubing off the internet and had them cut it to the length of the brackets. then drilled thru the tubing to allow me put the screws thru the brackets and reaching the teak. No problems yet and i did this 4 years ago. I did paint it black to match the brackets and actually installed plastic plugs to make it look better.
    Pics please!!!

    GSA or WakeMakers sells 4” platform raisers that’d be perfect if you don’t want to diy. I have them on my 06 X30 with the same V shaped transom as your X2.
