View Full Version : Ballast Expansion: Designed or Not Designed?

04-23-2008, 10:31 AM
I'm wondering if boat designers are designing these hulls to throw optimal wake at the factory ballast weight or if they're wanting them to get bigger w/ more weight?... I don't know a person out there who wakeboards who doesn't have their ballast added on to (myself included)... So... are the boat designers held back by government regulations for safe loading capacities or is the wake the boat makes what their idea of a sick huge wake?
