Mike, I'm surprised at how much room is still in the storage compartment. The boat is looking great. When do the board racks go on?

I'm totally jealous you got out today.

Boardracks will go on when its outside ready to take to Kentucky. While it is here it goes in the garage and to get in the garage the tower has to come off. It would be heavier with the racks so we shall wait.

Update: since I had the extra room and a fellow TT member gave me a great deal, I removed the port 750 sac in put in an 1,100 pound custom made sac. Wake is larger but washes out a little. We are darn close to a great surf wake, I still have to dial in the speed.

This is the problem that I have with ours. Cut down the swim platform hoping that would clean it up, but didn't do much of anything. I've read that the center trim tab helps to clean up the lip, but we don't have one so I can't comment. Love to see some pics or videos of your wave to compare it to ours.

Do you have to close the shutoff valves at the hull intakes when you are not using the ballast, or are they only for emergency use?

Did you end up installing the check valves on your vent lines?

No, they empty pretty well. If I want them COMPLETELY empty I have to elevate one end of the bag a bit. Would check valves help this?
