Designed to strengthen the engine divider panels on v-drive boats to prevent bowing when additional ballast has been added to the rear lockers. Sold as a pair.

One of the most popular WakeMAKERS products for several years now, our exclusive Engine Divider Panel Savers are a robust, easy to install solution to reinforce your engine divider panels. Add additional ballast to your rear lockers to achieve that great wake and don’t worry about bowing of the engine divider panels due to the ballast bag bulging.


Each Engine Divider Panel Saver Kit now comes with a total of six bars, three for each of your two engine divider panels.

The bar struts included in this kit are 19" long, making for a perfect fit on nearly any engine divider panel. Simply position the reinforcement bars on your panel, drill the required holes, and use the supplied allen key and hardware to securely fasten them in place. In just a few minutes you’ve prevented your divider panels from bending, bowing, or popping out of the track. No matter how much your ballast bag bulges in the rear locker, you can relax knowing that your engine divider panels are strong enough to withstand it.

Like all WakeMAKERS products, these are designed and built at our headquarters in Bend, Oregon. Built from thick sidewall 6063 Aluminum U channel and all hardware is stainless steel. After being precision cut, finished with radius edges, and drilled for a perfect fit, the bar struts are powder coated flat black for corrosion resistance and a factory appearance. Once installed they are practically invisible and look so good that most people will assume the boat came with them from the factory.
