we just got a mastercraft maristar and i have noticed that its wake is alot wider than the boat we used to have and im having trouble clearing the wake everytime i was wondering what i should do should i shorten the length of the rope or what is the best length to put the rope at

shorten the rope by 5' untill you feel confortable riding. There is no one rope length that is right..its just preference... see what you like best

Just look to see where your wake is breaking ( folding over) you want to be ahead of that point by a few feet.

Depends on speed and weight in the boat. Generally, more weight = higher speed (to plane). Longer rope = higher speed (to make wake non-white wash). Play around with all three until you find the right speed, weight, and rope length. <BR>Those big M-crafts do have wide wakes. You'll get used to it eventually &amp; like it (lets you go bigger/more hang-time and still land on tranny). Good luck.
