i had a bayliner and traded it for my sanger, it was a great way to decide how serious we were going to be about wakeboarding, why spend 40,000 and not be sure if its enjoyable? one thing i did notice was the tow hook in the back came loose after 7 days of boarding and tubing on lake shasta this summer. good luck with the boat and have a great time!

I rode a Bayliner 175 for a year.. it threw up a good wake for our level of riding and a few of my buddies were able to do inverts without any problems. I actully liked the thing a lot. I was able to trim the wake to make riding/wake size comfy for anyone.
It'll probably do better then you expect. Throw about 500lbs in the bow, that was out best config.

try to spread the weight out and make sure you put lots in the bow with an i/o.You can shape your wake with weight,heavier in rear steeper wake,even weight more rampy.

From 4 posts up:

[Throw about 500lbs in the bow, that was our best config.]
Perhaps you missed it due to my poor spelling habits.

With 500lbs in the bow and 3-4 people you'll be surprised at what that wake will look like.

If you pitch the prop down you will be suprised how much weight you can push and how fat you can get the wake. We run a 15 inch pitch 4 blade and push 2K + peeps. Get the weight forward as Barry say's and trim. Currently we run 1K forward of the windscreen in water and sand & lead and the rest in the back either side of the motor.

Nice looking boat!I have a 22' Sunbird with a 5L sterndrive.Never put more than 1200# in it but the wake is already quite large.Maybe look into new prop for next season for even bigger air,thanks for the tip.Is it easier to hold a consistent speed with prop?
