Agreed with above. Sac mine with 2700# and it has an amazing wake and surf.
I built a auto ballast system with: 440# in the bow, 725# in the center console, 700# sack btw the motor box and the rear seat (oval shape sits vertical, perfect for a rear facing seat!), 450# OEM tank, and a 350# ski locker.
at 24mph the wake is BIG, rampy, and firm. Just installed PP stargaze on mine. Absolutely amazing product. Perfectly dials the speed, which takes constant oversight when pulling manual.
DD with more than hang with any V-drive as long as the motor will hang. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS YOU HP. I have 310hp, and im not propped right, which holds me down. You will be much more satisfied if that boat is MPI (fuel injection). and try and find the 325hp motor. makes a big difference. and pull that OEM 4 blade and get you and acme 3 blade 913.
I bought mine with 325 hours on it in Feb of '07. I have 700 hours on it now and I just took my Carburetor in for a rebuild (another reason for MPI)
I love my boat, love the seating. I really dont think i would trade up for a V-drive. I dont the seat config.
