The secret to weighting the 205 DD (pretty much any boat really) is to "sink" it rather than whack a load of weight at the back. When we board properly (wake as above) the whole floor is covered, front to back except the drivers footwell! The 205 loves weight up front and an even distribution. Doing this stops the nose from rising so much you cant see over it, keeps the handling more even and crisps the wake off nicely. It also helps having a deep lake, this one is in France and is between 100 and 250ft. The one in the UK where we ski is only around 5-6ft which makes the wake much smaller and harder
