|ok, I have.....well my dad has....a '95 glastron that produces the crappiest wake in the free world. now, we've tried putting more people in and having them sit in the back but we only had like 3 people, but it didnt really do much. and it's really stupid to wakeboard behind this boat cause there's no wake to jump off of and so I just kinda hang on for a bit and it's really not fun at all. plus we like just got it so I dont think the idea of getting a new boat would work. another thing is my dad is a waterskier so he likes his non existent wake. I'm a beginner and I cant learn new stuff if I cant jump so....I was hoping some of you had some ideas to making the wake bigger. is it as simple as putting more weight in the boat? another note, I'm a part time worker and I dont get that much money so I'm looking for the inexpensive options, like concrete buckets and so forth. but if you could give me some more ideas that would be great thanks.|
|Is the boat an I/O or an outboard?|
|Sand works good. $2.50 for Fifty pounds.|
|it's got a 90 hp FORCE outboard on it.|
|You may want to to try playing with the trim, It might produce a little better wake. |
|Trimming the engine up 1/4 - free. |
Finding the biggest Rubbermaid bin that will fit in your ski locker and filling and draining it using a 5 gallon bucket - $6.00.
Stashing sand bags around the boat under the seats and in storage areas, removing them when trailering - $12.00.
Dreaming of the day when you can add an automatic water ballast system to your boat - priceless!
|great ideas! any more?|
|Yep, two words: Air Palmetto|
|i'm guessing it's not a real inexpensive option....|
|The Palmetto seems to be the direction I am leaning. I just sold my Ebbtide and am looking to get into something for around 20K.|
|Any links for the "Air Palmetto?"|
|all we have seen is a brochure that a guy gave me. incredible looking though. |
