    I think that is the same rack that was on the "yellow schoolbus" at the False River Flyin. I think someone would be better off spending a little more for a rotating rack after watching them put a foil in that thing.

    I know some of the NC group has one. If is does not say "Malibu" on it, then it is not going on their boat.

    I think any fixed rack is difficult to use, but really the rack only used twice. Launching the boat - the ski is up....and loading the boat back on the trailer - ski is up. The ski should be in the water the rest of the time!!!

    Am I right or am I right? Or am I right.

    I do know several people that have swivel racks, but use them without rotating them
    in. You can get used to anything.

    I have a swivel rack and a fixed rack. I only put the fixed rack on when there are
    2 foils in the boat. It's not as convenient, but it was several hundred $$ cheaper, and
    when I don't need it all the time, it works for me.

    Just my $.02 - and yes Don, I don't ski - but I do a LOT of in-the-boat-foil-wrangling -- I have even wrangled YOURS!!!

    LOL

    And coming from a seller named "glamourglitterjuicygirl", it's gotta be a great deal!

    Looks like she's been selling a lot of her future ex-husband's stuff on Ebay too.

    Wow, that comment was worth at least a buck and a half. I know we've been over this, but Thomas gave you that name and until he sees otherwise that is who you are. If you would like to sign up for the BVZ challenge, you can prove him wrong.

    Back to the topic, in our boat we have a minimum of 3 foils most likely this year we will have 4, so while there is always a foil in the water, there are always foils to wrangle in and out of the boat. Just incase some are wondering, each foil is different and set up for whoever rides it, and nobody seems to agree with how that set up should be. I know there are a lot of people who share foils and even some who share ownership, we are the exact opposite of that.
