    Hello everyone,

    we just upgraded our boat to a used MasterCraft x25 which has the ZFT4 tower on it. I am curious if anyone has taken off one of the wakeboard racks and replaced it with a hydrofoil rack?

    I had a Samson tower on my old boat with a swinging hydrofoil rack. When we traded in I took the rack off. I am pretty sure I can take the swing arm off the rack and mount the rack in place of the wakeboard rack on the ZFT4 tower. I am just curious if anyone has done anything like this and if so how he held up. I know skyski.com has a rack that is listed to work on the rack but their rack is not nearly as nice as the Samson rack I have and I figured if theirs is a direct replacement I should be able to do the same even if it means altering mine a bit to get screwed onto the current ZFT4 rack.

    I think it will work fine my only main concern would be the weight difference between a skyski and 2 wakeboards. i don't want to damage the rack since it swings in and out as well but it is very well built so I dont think the additional weight will be a huge deal.

    Just looking for some input if anyone has done this or not and if not I guess I will be the first and post my results of how it turns out.

    Thanks,
    KJ

    I mounted my foil wrack onto the swivel that had my old wakeboard rack on it. It's on a different boat but it has held up so far its on a 2008 malibu. Was just the factory wakeboard rack that came with it.

    I have a 07 X-45. Pretty sure it's that same tower. I ordered up some special blocks that made the rack bolt directly to the swivel where the wakeboard rack mounts. Works amazing

    Thanks guys,

    I actually took the wakeboard rack off and took the fingers off the back plate and took the plate along with my sampson rack to a local metal shop. They cut me a new back plate that bolts right on to the original swivel rack and my fingers from my sampson will mount right to it so if all goes well this spring I will have it mounted and working as expected.

    Now just have to wait until next season. Maybe between now and then I can find me a newer deck to replace my old SkySki pro deck.
