This is the same thing that I have heard from a lot of people. Goofy people always get screwed I will hopefully get a chance to test out the starboard side on Sunday.

run without your platform and see. bet its not much different! You could trim your swim deck. wakegate works but it doesn't make the pocket much better behind the star. i've seen a x-2 with a nice setup! on ksl for sale and works better then my experiments! the delta pad hull does some weird stuff at low speeds that's why it handles the way it does! one thing my pocket is now 5 ft long!




here is the guys sales link and the system worked well and looked factory

Can we see the backing plate against the transom?

I looked closely at my 205v hulled star and there does not appear to be enough room between the swim deck and the transom to fit the back plate...

Anyone with a 205v do this yet?
