    so i was wondering if you could put a boom on a dyna-ski?? my family has got a 17.6ft open bow 2006 model. ive been looking to buy a boom but unsure of which kind to get. i heard that a BI V-drive style boom will work cuz it is also height adjustable. and do you need a boom that is bent upwords due to the low walls of dyna-ski's?

    does anyone have a boom on there dyna-ski out there?....if so which kind and were can i find a place to buy one.

    Check with Mustski Motors. He should be able to help you out.

    I believe he has one on his now.

    I believe Bob is right about the BI V-drive. I think a KW boom would probably work as well, and will probably be a bit less expensive. I had one for my 18' dyne (new style) until it fell out of the boat. Check with Lake Elmo sports

    The V-drive style boom is the best because it moves the boom forward 18" from the pylon which gets you out of the spray and reduces the leverage on the boat on starts.

    the only question i have now is that since my family has a 17.6ft dyna ski the boom will be set so far back. is this something worry about because i dont want to barefoot in the spary... would putting an extension on the boom help get me out of the spray?

    With the V-drive boom on my 20 footer the only spray you get is doing deepwater starts on the 5 ft extension, and that is just a brief moment when the boat breaks over onto plane. on the 17.6 you might need an extension, but the V-drive boom does bring the boom 18" further forward of the pylon.

    Also, if you are doing a lot of short line, you could angle the boom forward further by shortening the cable to the bow and rotating the bracket on the pylon. That would probably bring you far enough forward to miss the spray. It would be a little awkward holding on to the boom that way though, so you would probably want it straight if you are not using a short line.

    couldn't i just put an extension on the boom so that im outside the far enough away from the boat that the spray can not get to me ? cuz to me having the boom angled would make everything alot harder, but that is an option.

    Most booms are not designed to be extended. You could possibly risk bending or breaking something. Also, it will be harder to keep the boat going straight the further out you go.

    The answer is yes, BI does make an extension. But I would try it without first. You can simply click the extension into place if you need it. On a 17.6 especially the more leverage out there the more you are going to have to correct for it with counter steer on take off.
