Create the perfect wave for your inboard boat. The Delta Wakesurf Shaper is compatible with most inboard boats and will make waves even better on boats with factory surf tab systems. The Shaper is made of reinforced high-grade polymer, anodized aluminum, and stainless steel, and it floats. Symmetrical design allows it to work on both sides of the boat. The front panel is reversible so you can fine-tune the wave on your boat. The Shaper is attached in seconds with oversized suction cups and is removed without a trace. With the right ballast setup, the Delta Shaper will deliver a great wave on almost any boat. Measures 13.5"L x 6.5"W x 9.5"D.
Reinforced high-grade polymer, anodized aluminum, and stainless steel construction is designed to float.
Allows the Delta to be switched out and moved to either side of the boat.
Front panel reverses so you can fine-tune the wave.
Oversized Suction Cups
Suction cups provide plenty of holding power and are easily attached and removed. Designed to accommodate curved surfaces, slight transitions, and thin decals.
Look for a flat or gently curved surface bridging the waterline when your boat is fully ballasted. Position Delta as far back as possible. If you have very little ballast, it's recommended that you unscrew and reverse the orientation of the front panel so that it is positioned even further back. This allows the panel to be fully submerged when in motion, which improves effectiveness and reduces splashing.
Weight the boat evenly left to right with 60% in the back and 40% in the front. More ballast in the back increases the height of the wave, and more in the front increases the length. If you have a mid-engine inboard, you will want to use more weight in the back to compensate for the center engine weight. Also, longer boats require more ballast to offset the additional buoyancy of the hull.
With a decently weighted V-drive, start at 10 mph, and work your way up. Slower speeds generate more height, and faster speeds generate more length (at the expense of height). You should settle in around 11.2 mph, but that all depends on length, hull shape, ballast, passenger weight, and your riding preferences.
