I live in NAshville but boat is on Center hill Lake. this will be our first summer with this boat. I have 4 daughters and we met our limit on what we could do on the pontoon boat, so stepped up to the mastercraft. so I will be spending he next month dialing in a surf wave for myself and them.

I am not as ambitious as you have been on the DIY stuff! very impressive.

Hey - thanks for the info. Just curious, how did you have the ballast distributed in the boat with the mission delta attached? On their website, they recommend keeping the ballast equal rther than listing the boat. But I am sure it depends. Interested in what you found worked.

I made my own gate out of decking board and a windshield suction handle. Costs about $30-$40 which sure beats the heck out of $300-$400. Doesnt look quite as fancy but does the trick just as good if not better!

I have an 04 Maristar 210vrs, similar hull to yours except 2 feet shorter. We get a respectable surf wake with the use of a BoB suckgate, purchased off this forum, and 1000ish pounds of ballast. We put a 400lb bag in each rear locker and a 250ish lb bag in the ski locker. Fill the surf side bag up full and fill the opposite bag 75% full with the BoB gate.

We have no problem surfing behind it ropeless and have a decent pocket to play in.

‘04 210vrs (x-10) hull and ‘06 X-30 have two entirely different hulls. MC revamped the X-series hull in ‘05 for the X-15 and X-30. I would, however, agree with everything else in the post. You’ll need to list the boat a little in favor of the surf side (100% weight in surf side vs 50-75% weight non surf side) and use a suckgate. We used a Mission Delta on ours and had a very long wave on a 2006 X-15. The delta panel will only fit at the very bottom part of your hull and the boat will need to be listed so that the panel is only submerged a few inches (lots of weight)
