    Question SeaDoo Wakeboard Rack - Fit Snug?

    Hi guys, my friend had the dealer install a few accessories including a Wakeboard Rack on his '15 GTI. He brought it by my house and he tested out the Rack, it is fairly easy to pull it off where the top red piece snaps in. This has us a little worried that with the weight of a wakeboard its just gotta snap open and fall off while out on the water.


    Can anyone comment how snug the Wakeboard Rack should attach to the ski? Should it be able to be unsnapped by just using a couple fingers and moderately pulling back on it?

    My wake edition came with the rack, its pretty stable on flat waters but on choppy waters I have had it fall off with my wakeboard attached to it.

    Any solution to beef it up? May have to come up with something.

    Mine pops off as well with any speed or chop... didn't even realize last time for awhile... but there it was, floating way back there.... wakeboard still attached.

    Won't be using it again until I can get it fastened better.

    Any ideas?

    The 2 brackets on the hull should be aligned better. I have mine installed myself and remember to have them close as possible. That the rack fits between when holding the red lock.
    I never lost it in any chop, swell or whatever.
    But to re-align you need to re-drill the holes.....

    I was careful to mount it well on our most recent trip and it didn't come off all weekend, even when riding hard. Not convinced yet, though, we'll see how it goes this coming weekend.

    Does spray water all over the place when turning left, but worth it nevertheless I think.

    Anyone ever put these on both sides?
