Anyone have an '89 tristart open bow and have suggestions on weighting the boat for a better wake?

Depends how you like to ride: we use two different setups one with a steep wake that launches you into the air 1.), and one that is more rampy or angled.2.)

1.)Two 540 lbs sacs on each side of the engine, driver (180 lbs), observer (115 lbs), bow (200) lbs, back seat person (160lbs)

2.) One 540 sac in the center walkway 3/4 filled up, driver (180), Observer (200), back seat (fat sac 540 lbs), bow center (115 lbs)

I have played with the wake a lot on our 89 tristar and these are the two best setups by far. Let me know if you have any questions.
