I would agree with most of what Alex said. We camp @ Lucerne Valley, right next to the marina. There are not many side canyons to hide in & get away from the main waterways.

You might look up The Fast Lane Truck on Youtube as they test both of those trucks pulling a boat 0-60 in your (and my) backyard, just outside of Denver. Their Ike gauntlet challenges are pretty...

Do you know what kind of water pressure you have? I have seen water pressure as low as 30 psi in my town, mine is actually 90-95 psi. I'd probably change oil one more time & see if it continues to...

You should have the bow full (1100 lbs up there) & the surf side rear full. You can add some offside weight as necessary, but with taps around 3-4 with that weight the wave should be awesome.

In that case, you'll be fine. Take your time & I would suggest using 4 wheel drive on the ramp. Just make sure to sit back in 2 wheel before hitting the highway.

Not exactly a fair comparison as the Z3 I demoed was a customer's boat that WWS had just put the W005 (1000lb) bags in, so it had 1100 in bow & nearly 1200 in surf side rear, my Z1 has the Surf...
