Talking 91 tristar 190

I just bought my first Mastercraft. A 91 tristar 190. Wondering if anyone knows the best way to configuer the fat sacs for wake surfing. I have a 540lb and two 350lbers.

Congrats on the purchase and welcome to Team Talk. While you are waiting for someone with ballast knowledge, how about posting a couple pics of the new boat?

Buy another 540, put one 540 on each side of the doghouse, a 350 upfront, and a 350 in the rear port corner......drive carefully and throttle back slowly when slowing or stopping

With what you have try 890 rear starboard, and the other in front of the driver. X2 on throttle back carefully and watch for waves. With your prop rotation, I suspect starboard side will be better.

Great looking boat! I didn't realize how close you are until I looked at the pic in your album. If you are using your phone on this site, us Tapatalk. It will be much easier. If you are on a computer, you either click on the paperclip icon and get them straight from your computer files, or use the "insert image" icon and copy and paste the URL.

If you need a hand with anything, shoot me a PM. I am in St. Paul.

Welcome to TT.
We enjoyed our 91 TriStar as our first MC. We never sacked it so I can't help you there.
