I have a 1999 Maristar 210 and I am just looking for the best way to weight it. Any suggestions?

I don't have the same hull as yours, so I will just go ahead and get this out of the way: the old 60/40 rule. 60% in the back, and 40% up front.

Honestly, that's where I would start. That boat is a v-drive, right? I would get 2 750lb fat sacs and put those in the port and starboard side lockers. Then either a 750lb or a 1,000lb triangle bow sac for up front. If you have a ski locker, Fly High makes a tube sac that will fit in there as well. I think it's rated for 350, but mine doesn't fill all the way up, and probably only holds 275.

Start with the 750s in the back filled halfway and the one up front filled all the way. See what the wake looks like, and adjust.

On my boat, more weight in the back seems to make the wake bigger and the more weight up front makes it more peaky. Not necessarily taller, just more of a vertical shape to it.

Right on thanks man. My friend has the x30 with the same hull and with his ballast it destroyed the peak. I'll play around with the weight though and get it dialed.
