|My dad just bought this bought with a high ski pole on it. |
it doesnt get delivered for a week..would this be a good boat to wakeboard behind??
|i mean bought this boat....|
|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!|
|bayliners r great all around boats...luxurious, trusty mercruiser power, and good for all water sports too...u'll b pleased|
|just weigh it down and have fun!!!! |
|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.
|theres a dude in New Zealand with a bayliner with a 3.0l stern drive he sacks it up and gets an awesome wake out of it |
heres a vid of the wake
|how should i weigh it down? |
just put a fat sack in the center storage locker?
or do i need more?
|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.|

[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.|
|ralph,how big is your bayliner,what size engine?|
|It's a '92 1950 classic with a 3L 130 Hp motor. |
|fyi ralphs the dude in nz I was referring 2 is that a nice wake in his profile or what |

|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?|
