I know there are several threads on these topic but I cant seem to find them. I want a wakeboard set up for my son. We have run 1500 # with people but looking for the best set up with sacks.

I posted this recently in another thread (and have a 96 205)
We use 5 gal plastic water containers in our 96 205 plus the fatsack at the back (put the rear seat base up as the sun-lounger and the FS under that) depending on the number of people we have in the boat usually we put 2-3 containers up front in the footwell in the bow, one on its side in the little walkway bit. Then use 4-6 down the sides (2-3 on each side), we can then shift the weight around to sort the wake out so it's nice and crisp :)

Best we've done was a fat seat in the back, fat sac in the bow, two side tubes and all the water containers plus about 8 people dotted around the boat. That ended up at about 4000rpm just to keep it on the plane!
