BoondocksPWC is your one-stop shop for brackets, device mounts, custom accessories, and local installation service for your personal watercraft. I specialize in Waverunner parts for the 2012+ FX and also for the 2015+ VX, GP, VXR, and GPR. Custom-made pieces can be machined for other brand models for those people in the Toledo, Ohio vicinity.
IN THE BEGINNING
Having purchased my first Waverunner back in 2013, I planned on riding in low visibility shallow river water and needed a way of measuring the depth of water under my ski. I wanted to mount a GPS/sonar chartplotter to it, but the mounting items I needed were not available off the store shelf to buy and there was very little information online showing how to install a fish finder on a PWC, so I began making the parts on my own. Two of my biggest challenges involved mounting a transducer off the transom. My Waverunner did not have a good flat surface for attaching a skimmer transducer, so I ended up designing and machining my own boarding step mounting bracket out of aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. After I had the transducer mounting bracket conquered then my next obstacle was sealing the transducer cable through the transom. It was imperative to have a waterproof cable seal that would not break in a marine environment, did not require cutting and splicing the cable, and would work above and below the waterline. This led to the birth of my US patented split thru hull cable fitting here.
I have combined my PWC hobby with my 20+ years of professional machine shop experience to give you PWC bracket parts that will make your buddies want them, too.
LOOKS GREAT AND BUILT TO LAST
I custom design and machine some of the highest quality transducer mounting brackets, FX cup holder device mounts, RAM ball adapters, FX multi-mount dash bridges, and modular multi-mount accessories on the market. The parts I produce look, fit, and feel like an experienced tool and die maker built them. I specialize in aftermarket Waverunner parts. My device mounts will securely hold your expensive chart plotter, such as the 9” Lowrance HDS Live, to your ski and give you peace of mind knowing it will not fall off while riding offshore to your favorite fishing spot.
Each part that I make has been designed using AutoCAD and manufactured on my machine tools using the highest quality stainless steel fasteners and marine grade materials (aluminum and UV stabilized marine plastic).
LEFT SIDED MULTI-MOUNT FIX
One of the flaws in the current Yamaha design is the screw thread stud mounted RAM ball. The left sided factory threaded design is prone to loosening, especially when using a long camera extension arm on the threaded stud mount, caused by vibration and counter-clockwise rotational force associated with riding the machine.
This problem is eliminated simply by using a multi-fastener hole pattern to attach the RAM ball instead of using a single threaded stud mount.
