Alright after days of experimenting I'm getting angered. We have lots of bags. 2 350 pounders 1 300 pounder, 2 250 pounders, and 1 650 pounder. <BR>I have an 07 Moomba LSV and what we have been doing is putting the two 350s in the back lockers, two 250s right behind the drivers seat (evened out left/right and more rear than center) 300 in center and 650 in front in between the bow seating. With this arrangement we can only ride 70 feet back with a clean wake and 25mph(my preferred speed) any suggestions? we're thinking add more to the front? the boat still seems quite back heavy even with the 650 in front

put the 650 in the walk way and then the 2 250's across your front seats on top of the 650. Put the 300 across the floor in front of the back seat and the 350's keep them where you have them. <BR> <BR>This is with stock ballast also right? Don't worry about the weight by the driver. Put that up in the bow. <BR> <BR>Good luck and let me know how that works out for ya.

thanks jeff, well the 350s and the 300 are stock ballast but I'll try that tomorrow when we go out. we're also getting a 500 but I figured when we balance it out we would just put it in the center. One problem is the center 300 is plugged into the stock ballast so I don't really want to move it <BR> <BR>(Message edited by adambarry on May 13, 2009)

Oh sorry I was thinking that was above stock ballast. You mean not everybody has a bunch of extra bags lying around? <BR>So you have 1 650 and 2 250's that are sac's? <BR>If that is the case put your biggest bag in the walkway as far forward as you can. And then maybe a 250 on top of that and the other 250 across in front of the back seat.

alright well I'll try that. I think we're getting a 500 today so I was thinking lay that across in front of the back seat with the 650 in the walkway and the two 250s on top of that in the front

Try putting 2500lbs of sacs in the bow 5000lbs of lead in the back, fill the ballast, drop the wedge, invite 17 people, change the prop, get a tower extender,and do double ups, thats seems to be the ticket for big air.

my boat only holds 13 <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>

And we aint got no stinkin wedge!!! LOL <BR>Moomba LSV. That set up should work good. I don't use much plate on my boat, Just a little above the right line ( don't know if that's up or down) I call it down. Good Luck

I ride behind the same boat sometimes... it likes weight up front. I think his set up is 1700 up front and 1400 in the back. we ride 75 feet at 23-24 and it is a nice clean wake.

adambarry 05-14-2009 10:59 PM

Yeah I've always been told to put 60% in back and 40% in front so thats what I was trying Ill try putting more weight in front
