    keithc, Mischief IV purchased his wakeshaper from me. I do ship internationally through my eBay store. Just do a search on eBay for Inland Curl and you will be able to get a shipping quote to your door!

    I own a 20SSV and my suck gate sticks to my boat. I had to do some modifications to the suck gate first since the 20SSV has a somewhat of a curved hall in the rear.

    First of all Iím using a suck gate with 4 inch diameter suction cups, Iíve tried smaller ones and they deafly donít stay on under load.

    I took the robber portions out of the handle and sanded the bottom part to the same curvature as the boat.

    This was very easy to do I bought some sandpaper for a belt sander then cut it in half and taped the two ends to the side of the boat where the suck gate is going to be applied. I rubbed the bottom portion of the handle back-and-forth along the side of the boat on the sand paper making sure the plastic from the handle didnít touch the side of the boat so it wouldnít scratch. This created the same curve as the boat and the suction cup sticks like glue.

    I also have to mount the suction cups on the spot where there was no Decal. I have a gravity games addition.

    Iíve been using the same suck gate for two years now

    What would you recommend?
    Thanks.

    Mine still works great and I built it for less than 40 bucks. Don't buy these homemade models when you can do it yourself. Since the picture below I put the stainless model handle on it. Works much better than plastic, the suction cups have superior suction compared to the plastic versions.

    Depends on what an hour of your time is worth and I donít think you could make a decent wake shaper in less than an hour in the garage.
    So for $140, that saved me time and money (youíre not including shipping costs of supplies Iím sure) as it works great and to be honest, doesnít look as homemade as the one in the pic above.

    You can, actually. I outlined exactly how to do it.

    Only thing not listed on the receipt was the handle and the plastic.


    The fact that people are basically making home made suck gates (that are just rip offs of the early versions on that mastercraft website) and trying to sell it off as a finished product is hilarious to me. It literally takes an hour, a drill, a couple hand tools, and some know how.

    If I was going to go out and buy one, it certainly wouldn't look like it was homemade. No offense to your product or anything, but it looks like something made in your garage.

    Pot calling the kettle black if you think your actual homemade unit looks better than the one I purchased for $140 bucks.
    Again, not my product and Iím not selling anything on here but you should be more subtle and polite in how you approach your responses. You donít need to say disparaging comments about those that donít want to waste an hour of their time in their garage. (And yes, I could make one with my eyes closed)

    Did you patent the design? Donít know why it bothers you so much. Like no one else reads the internet and can copy a design?
    If it bothers you so bad that someone is selling them, go out and start your own wake shaper business and let us know how that works out for you.

    Again, the product I purchased looks great in person but rather performs outstanding and I have no complaints for the $140 I paid for it. You donít see it anyways once installed so point is mute on how it looks.

    This is an older thread so not sure why the debate all the sudden. Guess something bothered you about Inland Curl wake-shapers.

    I'm not trying to sell mine, I fully recognize it's homemade. The difference is I didn't pay someone else for their homemade version.

    If you look at Mission, theirs actually looks like a finished product. That Inland Curl thing literally has a handle that has other pieces bolted to it, and you paid someone for that! At least Mission took the time to develop a mold and make it look like a real product that's worth paying for.

    As far as a patent goes, of course I didn't patent this design. I do, however, own a patent and if I was Mission (assuming they own a patent) I'd be sending cease and desist letters to every one of these knock off companies.

    edit - Just checked their website, and patent is pending. Hopefully their claims are all allowed, and once they get notice that they are, I'm sure we'll see them start to defend their technology.
