Looks great. Got any ballast in there yet? I have the same boat in a 95. New Dimension tower being delivered today. and got in a few different bags last week in anticipation so i'll be playing with different set ups.

I think it sat so long because it's the Sport model, most prefer the lounge seating I believe.

HAHA, cement bags!!. Aren't you worried they'll harden and be hard to come out? I just bought 2 580# bags for each locker and another 350# for the front bow (filler style). I got that to start with. Should be more than I need.

I would love to see some pics of the wakes. I am looking at adding ballast to mine and am still unsure on what to add where.

They're double hefty bagged, today's setup worked great...3 60 lb bags stbd rear, 1 bag port rear, 2 bags port under glovebox, 1 under each front seat, 5 passengers. Will post wake later. We had 1500+ lbs with everything, yrs should be plenty.

Tested the bags today. I would guess around 800 in the back and the full 350 in the front gives me the best "looking" wake. I too porpoise at 30ish. I found with a faster launch and more rpms initially I could maintain closer to or just past 30mph. I filled the 580# up and put the 350 on top of it on the star side and I got a long tall great looking surf wave but with the same weight on port I got a very different shorter wave. Ok for me I ride Goofy.

My tower should arrive tomorrow. now I'm really getting itchy.
