X-9, 209 and wake plates, etc

Would like any feedback from X9 or 209 owners who have installed or considered installing some sort of wake plate, suppression plate or trim tab for the purpose of shrinking the slalom wake hump. I bought the boat as a cross over, and I've figured out how to make much better boarding wakes than I anticipated. I am struggling a tad with the slalom wakes...and I am the slalom guy in the crowd!

My MC dealer rep said to hook the hull...which I found out was already done on these hulls starting in 2003...at least in the center part of the transom inside the lifting strakes.

With a slight hook already, and the bottom of the boat not being perfectly flat where a plate of any kind would go...I am in need of some MC veterans advice here. It seems to me that a plate fashioned to play off the momentum of the hook should give added lift...but it might be tricky to install. Especially if you try to add hydraulics around the gas tank.

I know a lot about sterndrives...but I am inboard rook...need help. Thanks...
