If this happens quite frequently then you other option might be looking for an aftermarket intake grate with a different tine setup. Keep us posted.

Thank you so much Kevin and Steven this is helpful, I will look into aftermarket grates.
I'm new to SDSB and was searching for intake grate solutions for the same reason. I thought I'd offer what my dealer said on the issue. I'm always skeptical of their self interest on these issues. He said to be careful messing with the intake grates as this can cause cavitation. In my case I'm more interested in low speed performance than high. I'd be interested if this is a real concern or not. Certainly clearing debris will often require extracting the boat and some degree of disassembly.

If you go under the boat to clean out the intake, be sure you don't get your hand caught in the intake grate. Panic isn't a good thing under there. Drowning isn't worth it!

Can anyone recommend an aftermarket grate that fits a 2008 230 Wake? My grate only has 3 tines and I suck up debris all the time. very frustrating!! otherwise a great boat
I'm also waiting for an answer to your question about a replacement grate.
I haven't seen any anywhere on the net.
Anybody have a suggestion.
