Do you just add fat sacs next to the hard ballast tanks in the rear?

X1 Wake?

i have an 02 X-star, which is the same hull as your X1 (205 V) anyways, i have the stock ballast tanks in the rear, the stock ballast bag in the center of the floor, 1 fat sac bow sac in the bow (1000 lbs.) and 1 400 lb. fat sac in each rear compartment next to the factory hard tanks, but i only fill the rear fat sacs approx 3/4 full. it throws an awesome wake!!!!! if you have more people in the boat thats cool too! you just have to see where the wake is the best depending on where they sit? i ride at 75 feet at 25.5 and it rocks!

Flamin', ditto what others have already said. I have the same boat and will note that it can be VERY weight sensitive. If you're getting white water on one side of the wake, you need to add weight/people to the white water side of the boat to fix the problem.

Also, you need to verify with a GPS you're actually traveling 23 MPH! There are three little switches on your dash. Two of them adjust each speedo, the one in the middle controls the readout for your display, i.e, depth, air temp, lake temp, etc. It's easy to accidently hit the wrong switch and adjust the speedos in the wrong direction. Again, verify with a GPS you're going 23 MPH, my guess, if your getting wash on both sides you're probably going slower than you think.

Man something is up. I can't believe you have such a problem. I ride at 70', 24mph and have no problem with wash. My brother who is learning rides at 20-21mph 65' line with both tanks in the rear filled and very seldem is there a problem. I ride with full as well.

First check your speed using a gps. Like sand2snow said it only takes a knee to bump one if the buttons and it's messed up. If that is no avail throw in some fat sacs. Remeber when doing this to equally weight the whole boat or as close to equal as possible since most people want to throw all the weight in the back. And depending on how much weight you add, the prop may need to be changed out to get the hole shot you had before. You will lose top end but gain back the hole shot.

Hope this helps!

there are many ways to get a sick wake out of this hull. here are the different things i do.
normal sets:
2 - 750 sacs...sides of engine
300 KGB Ski Locker
1100 bow wedge
2 - 60 pound lead containers to put where ever to balance out the boat
ride at 85 feet @ 26 mph

my girl rides with:
300 each side of engine
300 KGB Ski Locker
300 Integrated bow sac under the seats
2 - 60 pound lead containers to put where ever to balance out the boat
ride at 70 feet at 23-24 mph

when i really wanna get down and dirty...see pictures
2 - 750 sacs...sides of engine
300 KGB
300 Integrated bow sac
1100 bow wedge
620 fat sac rear floor
620 fat sac middle, going towards walk way
2 - 60 pound lead containers to put where ever to balance out the boat
ride at 87 feet @ 27 mph

this boat definitely likes a 50/50 - 60/40 balance. i would say that if it's curling over, you either are going to slow, or have too much weight on the opposite side of the bad wake. side to side balance is another key thing with this hull.

Nothing 4400 lbs + of ballast won't cure....How long does it take to get that beast on plane? Equally impressive is no perfect pass.

it actually isn't that bad. probably 8-10 seconds. i have the Acme 1235 on it and it gets out of the hole pretty good. and nope, no perfect pass...we have the old school PP, but never use it. that prop makes it pretty easy to hold speed.

dude that's ridiculous... you got more in fat sacs than my whole crew does in gear (and we all buy new stuff at least every other yr)... how long does it take you to fill all that? hour? 1.5 hours?

maybe 15 minutes. basically, the three external bags take about 5 minutes a piece.
the two rear sacs, the KGB, and the integrated bow sac are all on their own pumps (Jabsco reversable) and own thru hull intakes. then i use a tsunami pump to fill the others. if i had two tsunami pumps i could get it slammed in about 10 minutes i'd say.

when i run my normal "daily" setup it takes about 5-7 minutes. basically, by the time i get my knee braces on, rope hooked up, and board on, they are filled.
