liljohn - Is that 500# in the bow include the 350# tank you added in the floor? Nice write-up on the installation, BTW (at TMC).

Matt - There are MANY who disregard that warning and put the 750 in the rear compartment. I have yet to hear of anyone having any issues. I do always fill the hard tank first, but I don't think it is...

I'll second the love for Walker Project. I have the Wake Outlaws board (pretty much a mix between the Bullet &amp; F-18), and I absolutely love it. It is fast and maneuverable. I'm 195# and have a huge...

If you are in the market for a new boat, you could always buy one with a catalytic converter (reduces CO emissions by over 99%). My '07 Malibu VLX has this. Most of the new Malibu boats have it. The...

From personal experience and reading many other posts, prop rotation also has a huge effect. LH rotation favors starboard side (goofy) and RH rotation favors port side. I have a LH rotation boat ('07...

I have an '07 VLX, and I could get a great wave just out of stock ballast going 11.6 MPH. And I don't even have the bow ballast. Over the winter, to get an even better wake, I plumbed 750's in the...

I think I just understood what you were saying. To fit the two pumps, put them on a tee. I thought of that as well, but I just don't have room in the bilge area around the engine. There isn't enough...

My apologies; they are direct acting, not diaphragm. I'm just worried that they also restrict flow, though.

Are you still going to do this? I am possibly interested in this. I would be looking for (3) 3/4" and (2) 1" valves. Please let me know if you are still considering this.
