It definitely creates more drag and pulling the back of the boat down (as if more ballast in the rear), but I prefer the wake without the wedge down.

In my opinion only, the Malibu wedge is on the only style that theoretically makes sense to work.
been there and done that,...100% true!!

@ willyt
Heavy on the delta pad,..that,s what i was thinking about.
So what size of trimtab to start with?
ideally start small and work out bigger but i can not buy 5 plates or so.
Doesn,t the new star has the same delta pad?...and a Plate?

I ,m a fiberglass/gelcoat man so no worry,s there,..if it schreds of i gues it will leave a nice row of screw holes.

i,ve changed my prop 3 times by now,....i,m done buying props...and most of all i,m done buying new boats..(7)..Ps the new star is out of reach anyway.
I appreciate your comment on Q3 but it would be nice to know why i shouldn,t do this.
