Pylon Cup Holder

edited March 2016 in Boat Talk
Hey I didn't want to hijack that boat sale thread anymore than it had been, but a skier did some extensive legwork to track me down so he could get a pylon cup holder. If it's okay with the admin's I just wanted to make myself known so the next guy wouldn't have to work so hard for it. Skiing is hard enough. :)

    How much is this cup holder and will it fit Nautiques?

    I'll get some pics up. I wasn't sure if that was acceptable.
    Meantime - here is a Facebook album link -https://goo.gl/OI3TtI

    I offer them with stainless inserts or black plastic inserts, for $169 and $144 respectively. Email or call to order. The bracket is clear anodized aluminum. The stainless are by far more popular, but if you tend to put loose items in it, such as keys or coins, the plastic inserts are quieter.

    EDIT:
    They are a perfect fit for Malibu's 2.5" pylon, and we mill the bracket to 2.465". (If you dial caliper your pylon and find it at that diameter or less you should be okay) I have them in use on Malibu's, Sangers, and few I have no idea what boat it went on. The 2008 Nautique 206 pylon is at 2.80", so my current production run does not fit, and I assume the same pylon is in all SN's. So that being said I'll build up a run of them in the larger size. Let me know if you want to preorder one.

    How big is the diameter of the cup holder itself...would it hold a liter water bottle for example?

    How about a can of Fosters B)

    So good news and bad news.

    Bad news : I got in a 2008 206 and found that the pylon is 2.480", or about .030" too big for the current production design. I will plan to make a revised edition to fit the Nautique pylon, but let me know how many would be interested. Cost with stainless inserts is expected to be $189.

    Good news : most of the drink sizes will fit. As the cup insert is a stepped unit to retain small or large bottles/cans, a key point would be to find the drink of choice that fits it nicely. You'll see in the photos that certain ones (Labatts Blue) will not sit flat, as it's diameter is in between the small and large steps in the cup insert.

    I will vouch for the cup holders. Peter did a fantastic job with them. My wife loves that she has a place to put her Oberon now!

    @Peter_B did you get some strange looks test fitting all those beverages? It looks like you are in a convenience store.

    Sure did @Wayne . I was surprised that no one questioned it, as I worked the cooler case over pretty hard. :)
  • Peter_BPeter_B Posts: 22 Baller
    @ahopkinsTXi , you're making me google Oberon...
  • ahopkinsTXiahopkinsTXi Posts: 49 Baller
    @Peter_B It is a summer brew from Bells. I am not a huge fan of it, but my wife keeps them in business....

    Has anyone put one on a Carbon Pro? Unfortunately I believe the CP pylon is 3" diameter perhaps it's just 2.8" like the above mentioned SN??
  • Peter_BPeter_B Posts: 22 Baller
    @Rawski, if it is truly a 3" like the Flightcraft outboards are, we might be out of luck. I need a minimum order of 30 to run an odd size, and even at that number the cost would be over $200 each. But, I doubt that it's that big.
  • thagerthager Posts: 4,224 Mega Baller
    If the cup holder hole is too big but close why not line the inside with a thin layer of black rubber, etc? If too small a sanding roller on a drill wouldn't take long for a DIYer.
    Stir vigorously then leave!
  • Peter_BPeter_B Posts: 22 Baller
    @thager, that's of course up to the individual, but my intent would be to never need that. In reality I doubt there will ever be one that is too small, unless someone is going to mount it on a tower leg. :) If someone takes sander to it, the first thing that happens is they will burn through the anodization, which isn't a big deal but it is a solid layer of corrosion protection and cosmetic durability.

    For the Nautique owners, I've milled out 15 pylon cup holder brackets sized for the Nautique pylon, so in a 7-10 days or so I should have them back from the anodizer and be able to ship.

    Okay Nautique owners, I've got 15 milled and black anodized to fit the larger Nautique pylon (2.480"). Email or call if you'd like one. Same as before, stainless or black plastic inserts.

    Do you, or anyone else, know if the pylon on the Nautique 206 you used is the same as the pylon for the 200? I would guess that they are, but just checking.
  • Peter_BPeter_B Posts: 22 Baller
    Blueski, I believe so, but I'm at a show tomorrow with a new 200, I'll verify.
  • BlueSkiBlueSki Posts: 529 Crazy Baller
    I took a look at NautiqueParts and only one pylon is for sale. No reason to make two, so I would bet they are the same. Thanks for verifying.
  • Peter_BPeter_B Posts: 22 Baller
    Fits niiice....

  • m_pagsm_pags Posts: 66 Baller
    Just installed mine on an '06 MC. Fit perfect and will work with my ski-doc. Thanks @Peter_B

    Skied today with @rodecon and personally tested the cup holders with CB Caged Alpha Monkey (look it up). Cup holders do work!
