Thanks for the input!
Ya done good! Excellent price and sharp looking unit.
There is a reason that MC produced this hull for a decade and a half. Depending on what your main water sport interest is you will find this to be an allround great boat -- killer boarding wake, not bad slalom wake, and surfable (with lots of ballast up front plus the nice 750 in the stern.)

Awesome boat!!! i used to own the same hull just a couple of years older. The only thing I didn't like about the boat was the size of the gas tank. Be careful not to run it too low on fuel as it will eat fuel pumps if you run it past a 1/4 of a tank. I learned that after the first year of owning the boat. After that I never let it get past 1/3 of a tank and I never had another fuel pump issue.

750's in the back? holy crap, a bit over kill for sure. Fill a 540 lb sack in the bow, fill the back to 350 to 500 and you'll have more then enough wake, trust me.

Still one of my all time favourite boats ever made...

I thought he said 750's? I'm going to finalize this morning. I'm going to ask again. Maybe they were 500's? I'm pretty excited! I have never had a boat this nice lol.

If wakeboarding is your thing you will want to add some bow weight to balance out the 750's. You can really tune the wake with how you distribute the weight. More weight in the back will produce a more vertical wake. More weight in the front will lengthen the transition.

Great looking boat, congrats on the purchase and welcome to TT.

750s in the back are nice to have for surfing. When wakeboarding, I almost never fill the 750s all the way. I run the 1000lb open bow triangle up front and the kgb.

We fill the port 750 for surfing, plus the KGB, plus the IBS. If you don't need 750, just don't fill it all the way. Having more capacity is better than less IMO.

wheelerd is correct you need the 750 bags to surf. Fill the 750’s to 75-80% for wakeboarding. With 750 bags in the back it is a good idea to update the prop. Nice looking boat good price.

I don't think I have that? At least I didn't see a gauge that looks like what I see in that manual? I also don't have perfect pass. Just Mastercraft cruise. Am I missing something?
