Thanks for the tip. I have never completed a 360, I cant ride it out.

1/2 KGB, I will try that. I also will add another fat sack in the back beyond my extra 800 lb port tank.

I see you are in eastern WA. I've got a place at Crescent Bar, which is where I keep the boat. If you are ever out my way I've got a 40th X.

I know its an old thread Just adding that surf tabs make a huge difference in this boats wake without slamming the boat with weight. I run with two 750s in the rear half full on starboard side and two 200# bags under the front seat plus factory. Speed depends on weight lowest I go is 11 and increase speed depending on push up to 13 with a boat full of adults. I Havent messed with the starboard wave much yet.
