yea, if i want just to stay on the wave without trying any tricks i can do it until i am just too tired behind my 21 foot 205v hull. On the contrast with my friends' Xstar 24 foot hull in 03 version it feels like i can walk on water like Jesus; so much more pocket and push. Hence my urge to lengthen that pocket to be able to move up and down the wave for some tricks. I barely have some 2000 lbs of ballast with 2-3 adults and coupla kids. May be i should just add some 500 lbs or so.

Thank you!
@igormaster, I use this kit in my 2002 X-Star (205v):

I've got a 70*15*15 in the KGB with a piece of starboard limiting the height; it probably fills to 350#.
I've got 1100's in the rear that probably fill to 750 or so with the wakeboards on top of them. Too much in the rear and the 250v is a porpoise.
