Wave Wacker or similar product

6 posts in this topic

I have been giving some thought to purchasing some wave protection for the rollers coming over my transom from time to time on Mille Lacs.

I have looked for wave wackers in some of the usual places, but I haven't actually seen them in a retail outlet before. Where can I find them and what things should I know before purchasing? Any drawbacks of installing them?

Thanks!

Hey Huskminn- This may be out of date info, but a few years ago I located WaveWackers operating out of a warehouse in St. Lious Park. A couple of brothers owned it at the time....Harrick or Harris? Anyway, for a few bucks I rolled my Lund in and they put a custom set on for me right at the shop. Otherwise they will ship them to you if you give them the specs on your boat, motor and kicker.

Jake,

Your info may not be out-dated because I went to the yellow pages and located a company by the name of Wave Wackers still in St. Louis Park. I haven't called them yet, but I assume they're the same folks. Just so happens that it's about 10 minutes from home, so it'll be a piece of cake to check it out.

Thanks for your help!

if they don't have them try Hanney's in mpls they should have them and you won't be disapointed with the quality

Carpy,

Thanks for the lead. I checked it out and their prices are significantly better than the Wave Wackers I saw at Hannay's Marine. I had decided that I would rather just get wet than spend $300.00. But, now I'm reconsidering after looking at the Whitecap splash guards.

Thanks for the info and the link!

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
