I have a 97 ps 205. I put 750# under rear seat shifted all the way to the port side, and 750# down the port side of the engine. The two bags make an L-shape. The rub rail is right at the water line when loaded down. I get a wave that comes up to my hip with a nice curl when I drive about 10.5mph. I think I'm gonna try pulling off my swim deck next time I'm out to see if it cleans it up even more. I think it is acting like a trim tab and lifting the port corner out of the water a little as we drive. My friends and I are all around 200# and can easily surf on any of the boards out there on this wave. My mother in law said it is much bigger than the wave they surf behind a friends x-30 with stock ballast.
