Which would have a better wake?

Both are good, The Barefoot has a deeper V and a bigger engine. But, I like both.

I ride behind a 2001 model and love it! A friend of mine owns a '92 Nautique Excel, which has the same hull as the Barefoot Nautique. The wakes are a little different. The Barefoot does have a deeper V. I prefer the 2001. The 2001's wake feels a little more solid. But the boats were weighted very differently, so I don't think that my comparison is the greatest.

I own a Barefoot '88 2001 model... I like wake very much. I rode a couple of times behind a "normal" SkiNautique 2001 model, The hull is a little different and most people find it better. I found the Ski wake in compare with the Barefoot wake more friendly. The same size, but not as steep.... I hope it will help!

Looks great, I think it was the nicest boat in the picture. Looks like you already learned how to weight the boat too.

What kind of tower did you installed on your 2001?? Is that a '98-'99 FlightControl? Looks very nice!

Tommy,
I can answwer that for you, it is the Proflight Original tower, i can tell my the slight backward lean, the white stickers in their certain location, and the chrome time at where you tie your rope on. I have bee waiting to see a Nautique 2001 with a Prolight, it looks like it was meant for it.

Here is another pic of the tower.
