Wakesurfing question

i just noticed this over the weekend. Whenever we are filled with ballast and we have the boat listed i will feel a slight shutter every now and then. I am trying to determine if it is the perfect pass altering the throttle, or if there is a possibility that there is an issue with the prop not getting enough water and causing it to cavitate? Anyone ever experienced this??

Is the boat holding speed well? Sounds like cavitation, but I am no expert.

Check your trans fluid. When you list your boat if your low at all on trans fluid the list will cause it to be even more scarce . This will give you little shutter /slip every now and again if the fluid isn't topped off. That would be the first place I check.

Great call swat guy. the transmission is a hurt hsw 450d and was low on fluid. It says it takes the dexron iii so i will top off tomorrow. But the kicker is the walter vdrive part isn't even showing on the stick.. could have ended up bad. What fluid does that take? 30w motor oil?

My bet would be that it is just cavitation. We had that problem on the old boat listed, but once we added GSA and evenly weighted the boat it went away.
