Our setup thus far is as follows:

Starboard: Full stock KGB and Starboard. 455 lb X2 sac in rear comp, 370 tube sac in cooler comp. 10.4 mph with tabs rolled 100% and attitude plate down 40%.

Wake is very tall with good push though pocket is not that long.

Port: same as above except 400 lb sack under side lounge seat instead of tube sac and factory balladt/plates switched. Speed 10.6. Wake is better on this side, taller and cleaner. Pocket still short.

Am adding a 400 lb sac to bow tonight to try to lengthen wake.

Run in PP CS 750 NN 50 T?? 250. Holds plus or minus .2 mph with ACME 2241 15" prop.

Nick speed the boat up to 11.5-12mph and get more weight in the boat too. Weight in the bow made a big difference but we also are running over 2800lbs total ballast now. Use an actual GPS as well. All the boats are off and usually they are slower than what the boat says. Our boat reads 12.9 when we are actually going 11.9. Speeding it up will make a huge difference. Most people surf too slow. You can make the pocket very very long

Thanks will try have to get GPS on boat for sure bow sack didn't do to much for the length going out again tonight.

Might try adding more weight too the wake is good no issues going wireless at all. Should I fill all my factory ballast?

I fill only the kgb and port side when we surf. I experimented with the starboard side as well but I just leave that one empty as it didn't do much. You're only running 1400lbs total ballast, that's half what we use now. Grab two FatSac W707's (750-950lbs) and put those on the sides you're surfing and you will see a huge difference. $300 in two more sacs will make your surfing way way way more fun

Hate having sacs on the seat though I surf goofy so no room under cooler seat except for tube sac. I'll go buy a bigger bag though for port surfers and stick the 400 on the cooler seat.

Just got off water now (underwater lights and glow sticks work great) and speeding up worked great we went to 11.2 so about 1 mph faster got way longer pocket though wave shrank it was definitely better though.

I don't have any bags on any seats when loaded with weight but we ride port side. It would cost more money but you can get 50lbs pop bags and load up the starboard side to ride goofy and get just as much weight over there. What prop do you have? Does your boat go bow up quite a bit on the hit until it gets on plane?

Edit: Disregard my last question. Putting another 1400lbs on top of your 1400lbs would change your answer and you haven't done that yet

Also, when you speed up you can bring the center plate back up more which will make it steeper again and still longer with more speed.

With new speed I'll bring plate up, we go around 40% now.

Have the ACME 2241 15" prop. Dealer said it was the best prop for low-end on that boat and ACME confirmed. Have never had any issues getting on plane, even with 11 adults and full ballast + bags.

Thinking about the Nautique wedge sacs for the bow under the front seats.

My total now would be 200 port stock,
400 KGB, 455 port locker, 400 port bench (370 for starboard) and 400 bow between seats or total ballast of 1800 lbs.

Getting the 950 lbs bag will bring me up to 2250, should be near enough...

Forgot to add the 400 you added in the bottom part of post #41. The five blade prop made a big big difference which is why I was asking about getting on plane. It also allows us to not use the center tab as much and not have as much weight in the bow. 2250lbs will be good. If you have a bunch of people you won't need more ballast. We only like to go with 4-5 tops

Yo Nick.

Is that Acme prop larger or smaller than stock?

We've hit 85 hours on the water for the season. Heading out again right now. Will post pix and our surf config later today. Our wave is dialed to SICKE ... but there is always room for improvement!!!
