Not sure if to post this here or under ballast. We have been adding more ballast to our X2 to achieve a more desirable surf wake. Currently we use a piggy back 450 lbs bag filled over the hard tank in the port corner. We also fill the KGB, and if there are not enough riders a 250 lbs bag is placed as far forward in the center walk way as possible. The wake is large and very surfable for me at 210 lbs, riding a 50 inch Phase 5 board. The problem we are having is there is so much wash coming out of the center of the teak deck onto the wave. I first thought is was the swim platform. I did some modification and trimmed it down, and it is no longer a problem at all. I believe all the wash is prop wash. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to how to eliminate this and clean up the wave. I called my dealer and there is no retrofit kits for plates or tabs from Mastercraft for my boat year. Any ideas?

Is it the factory prop?

You can still add an aftermarket center trim tab and it will take the prop wash away.

No...the prop is a 14.5 x 14 I believe. We had to switch it with the added weight for the PP to maintain the speed. What aftermarket tab would you recommend?
