Boat don't want to go wakeboarding speed

I have a '92 prostar 190 and I am always feathering the throttle to keep the boat around the right speed for wakeboarding. There seems to be no problem with skiing. Is this normal or is there something I can do. I know perfectpass is an option. BTW...It has the original 4010 Holley Carb!!!

I have a 1993 205 and I have the same problem.

The perfect speed for wake size is right when it is just about to plain out. if it plains, then the wake gets smaller.

it is very hard to stay in the sweet spot.

our hulls are not designed to throw a wake.

You can add weight to the front or back to change the speed that it planes out at. I would start with weight in the back to keep it from planing out at your boarding speed and giving you a bigger wake.

I have a 92 also. I put a fat sac in the back and 50 to 100 pounds in the front under the bow. It seems to keep the speed fine with the ballast in the back. The lip of the wake gets better with a little more weight in the front. Also you can move the weight in the front to offset weights of people in the boat to get a consistant wake on both sides. I hope this helps.

Thanx, Do you take the back seat out to use the fat sac in the back? What sort of size fatsac are we looking at?? How many lbs in the stern ballast or people. I was thinking of getting a fatsac but not sure which one would be best.

4 blade will be your bestfriend. You will lose alittle top-end speed, but you will beable to hold a constant low speed easier.

I got a friend that had a 92 205, and that was what OJ props told him.

That is just your '92 telling you it is a SKI boat. 36mph is all you need.
