Any info on a 1989 Maristar 240?

Hello all,

I have a 1989 Maristar 240. I am trying to find out what might be the best placement for ballast to produce a steep but firm wake with a kick at the top. I have 1350lbs of ballast in the back, 500 in the center locker and 100lbs in the bow. When standing on the swim deck the water level is at our shins.

I know there are hundreds of ballast threads, my problem is I can't find much info about the hull design of the Maristar in 1989. It is my understanding that different hull designs like different weight distribution. I have read that many Mastercrafts love weight in the bow.

Does anyone know what this years hull design likes when it comes to weight distribution?

One other nagging question, can a wake be steep with a nice lip but yet be soft? I just can't dial it in.

Thanks in advance
