The wake was pretty big but I'm still playing with it. I've heard amazing things about the 45's surf wake, but I'm still waiting until I get it just right to feel it.

Here's a couple more 45 pics.
That is a crazy amount of ballast, I think I would be a little nervous with my rub rail at the water line.

Please let me know how you get it dialed in, I was going to start playing with my 45's wake for surfing this year.

Hey EWood,

Were you at Halls crossing this weekend? I saw a 45 in the slip identical to that one while down on the maintenance trip. Looks like they got a pretty nasty rub mark off of one of the houseboat bouys. weather was real crappy.

YUP!!! Not gonna lie I was a little nervous too, but I really want to get that thing up to the waist high monster I've heard about..

Also, the one where the water is close to the rub rail I remember the boat being turned fairly sharp to maintain our line in a protected cove. Check the last photo, where the water line is about in the middle of the X-45 decal. That one is a little more consistent with where it typically is.
