You still need to lake test and dial it all in. We need more PICs...................... LOL

Besides you have nothing to look FWD to this fall. Suck Eyes are just going to let you down like they always do. JK

My 200VRS (X2 now, hehe) had its maiden voyage with the new ballast system today and everything went well.
I did not find and ballast system leaks; but I do have a very small leak somewhere else?

The 750's in the rear fill the space nicely, but I could go bigger if I wanted too.

And the ballast vents worked as they should.

I was very pleased with the wake, it's going to take some dialing in for surfing.
I played around with it a bit and found around 10mph with the port and bow full it was pretty good.

It came up on plane better than expected with everything full. I was a little concerned with only having the RTP, but with 2,200 pounds of ballast and four people it did great.

I am very happy with the way everything turned out and once I find tower speakers and an amp the boat will be ready for summer!
