    New to bayliner

    Hi all

    quick background about the us and the boat

    i’m one of 3 directors who own ack mechanical plumbing and heating here in the uk

    we had met at the office the sun was shinning beer in hand and the idea of a boat hatched, the next day we had a bayliner bow rider 2050ls outside the office with the 4.3v6

    now none of us have ever piloted a boat, captained a boat, driven a boat not sure of the term even

    but we hope to much fun on it with the family’s so thoughts have turned to a wakeboard tower but is there another alternative??

    kind regards

    Welcome to BOC.

    I think I want to work at your place!

    You can wakeboard without a tower......many people do it that way.

    I suggest you start your summer with no tower and see how it goes.

    Since you guys are new to this, I encourage you to view some safety videos.

    You also need all the required safety gear on the boat......like lots of life preservers, a paddle, a fire extinguisher, etc.

    That is a nice sized boat with a nice powerplant...……….Enjoy!

      Hi Andy
      Welcome to Boating and BOC.
      Might I suggest everyone take a Boating Safety Course and then hire a licensed Captain to show everyone the operation/ maneuvering of your new Bayliner.

        Thank you for the hello’s

        I have that sorted a friend of mine Volunteers for the RNLI and is driver/pilot person he will be on the maiden voyage to help out and sort us out

        the boat is and the marine yard getting a full inspection/service repair etc, I’m just a bit stuck on the towing situation and what to use? Can I just use the centre mooring cleet? Or is there something I’ll need to get?

        also the bow seats only have storage in the centre can’t I cut into the seat base and build some more to the left and right seats? I think the later models had them, I think I’m also missing the storage seat and jump seat at the back either side of the engine cover

        kind regards

            Does this replace the rear centre mooring cleet?

          Post some pictures of your interior so we can see what is there.................and what is not there.

          It will help others give advice.

          A couple of pictures of your cleats in the stern of your vessel can help us answer your question more accurately.
