So I board in saltwater and have learned and still ride behind outboards for the most part. 1 out of every 4 times i go out im behind my friends 02 xstar/x2/x1 or sometimes the x9 thats out. I have ridden behind an older 23 ft center consol that had a huge wake. It had a 250 2stroke yamaha outboard and with a fatboy in the back the wake was bigger than the x9 and not washy at all. I think i could make a decent wake boat out of an outboard.Theres alot of hulls w/o engines that sell for CHEAP. I was thinking around 21-23 ft with a 250 4 stroke or twin 150s. I have some questions:
1) You all are probably the wrong crowd but wake boats are fairly new. Before you had one did you ride behind an outboard with a nice wake? If so what was it?
2)Always wanted to know this but what gets better gas economy, one powerful single engine or two engines that add up to that one powerful one. For example a 300 hp 4stroke vs. twin 150 hp 4 strokes.
