So, I'm at it again with the goofy side.
To be honest I have the perfect boat for me, for wakesurfing. I ride regular and the regular wake is just outstanding, I couldnít be happier. However, there seem to be a lot of goofy wakesurfers in Ohio. Maybe it the water, or dual corn belt/rust belt local, whatever, seems like I always have more goofy surfers than regular. I just havenít had what I think is reasonable success building a goofy wake behind my boat.
I tried a number of things last year. We tried a number of ballast configurations. The one that seemed to work best sunk the air vents in to the water so much so that we took on water and had to stop. Driving in circles didnít seem to help the goofy wake.
Last year I made two different wake plate attachments. Both made the wake worse.
Late last year at the Lake Norris Season extender I set my manual trim tab as high as it would go. That definitely makes things worse. The goofy wake was all mush and there was a ton of spray in the riders face. There was even some spray on the regular wake. So definitely donít set the MTT up.
Iím an accommodating guy I like to see my friends enjoy themselves too. So attempting to set up a good goofy wake is a natural thing for me to attempt. Iím not accommodating to the point where Iím going to do anything ridiculous like buy and keep two boats or sell the boat I have and buy another. I have the right boat for me. I donít see my friends buying boats either. I am willing to spend $40 here and there and experiment with an idea.
So I bought a 12 inch by 18 inch sheet of 1/8 inch aluminum for $35. I also bought fasteners and some angle aluminum. Iím extending the length of the MTT quite a bit. The angles are there to provide strength and resist bending.
Iím hearing from a number of Avy owners that extending the trim tab works for them. Iím hoping it works for me too.
I have a few other ideas; some are not permanent changes others are. I have the boat I want Iím not willing to make permanent modifications to my boat. Plus I want to keep expenses down so, again spending $40 here and there is a fun diversion. The other ideas will just have to stay on the shelf.
