Maybe I wasn't clear. He can clear our wake with or without ballast. He can also clear the wake on other boats, including our friend's I/O with a small washy wake.

I don't know as we haven't run that setup. Based upon my experience I would imagine the wake would be steeper with a shorter pocket (basic weighting consequences).

That works out to be 1790 pounds if filled to...
