Do you have a picture of where you mounted on the boat? I have a 210 vrs as well. Which suckgate design did you go with?

I've got a 2001 Maristar 210. I have the 640 lb wakemakers bags and have found them to be plenty of weight for this boat, they also leave room for dual batteries on 1 side and my cooler in the other. I also have 250 lb's of shot bags up in the nose from wake ballast. Generally a mostly full fuel tank, 3-5 people with the surf side rear bag full and the non-surf side bag 1/2 full works well.







I've used 2 different suck-gates, they help throw a decent wake but are a PIA to keep on the boat sometimes and last about 1 season. I've recently made a couple swim deck mounted wake shapers from scrap wood, first one was too divergent and did about as much harm as good.





I was just using scrap wood and testing out ideas, it only took 15 minutes to trim the first one down and see what a very small divergent angle would do. The force of the water mostly holds it in place but I used the straps to keep it there and not scratch my boat.





The above surfing pics are with the swim deck mounted shaper, I was getting the same wave as far as I could tell from the suction cup shaper to the side of the boat. Biggest difference I noticed was the boat surfed the same but 200 RPM's lower with the swim deck mounted shaper and a fraction of the pull to the side. It's a winner in my book.

I ordered some plastic material that's waiting for me at the lakehouse to make a more refined version that attatches to the swim deck with quick release pins.

I can’t seem to find the seastow handle anywhere. I have a 97 200V so I need a slim suction cup as there isn’t a lot of room on the lower ridge. If I can’t find anything, I think my only option will be the swell slim...

Not sure if this is the style of handle you're after, but...

I used one of those to make my first suck gate, seems to hold pretty well, but I also run a piece of 5mm paracord from the handle to the leg of my tower, to keep it from sliding back on the hull.

I have the exact same boat and am wondering if you could share info about your deck mounted wake shaper. I’m fairly handy and really Scottish so would like to try making my own. ��
