4 sacs Mike, are they big sacs? I didn't think an I/O can pull that kind of weight. I have 3 sacs and a wedge and my 365hp Inboard takes a while to plain.

the owner of the boat can comment on this....but one huge sac, two smaller sacs under the back seats and another sack in the ski locker....if i had to guess i would say that its maybe 1200 pounds

one 750 lb sac in the bow, two 250 lb sacs under the rear seats(not usually full all the way, just use to adjust to weight in the boat) and a 200 lb sac in the locker. Never had any prob planing out!

21.5...

I had it down pretty good last year, but I couldn't get a decent pull so I got PP, and now everyone gets the same pull!

We sometimes ride behind a 22ft newer cobalt with the duo-prop jobby thing i guess for more torque. anyhow, its sportin' a small block and still struggles out of the hole with a lot of weight. with about 800 in sacs, 200 in lead, and a few good sized people, have to spread everyone out to get up on plane..or atleast plane out within a few mins. must be a hella powerful bayliner ya got there.

its a 4.3l 190 hp on a 18ft capri, I use anywhere from a 4 blade 18 pitch or 20 pitch prop to my 3 blade 21/19 pitch props, the higher pitch I go, the longer to plane. but as long as the props arent dinged it planes out quite nicely and timely!

Wake looks pretty legit. Just goes to show you don't have to have the latest/greatest to go big. We had a I/O Seaswirl for a long time and the wake was really pretty decent. Definitely planing out was the biggest problem with a lot of weight, but it would eventually get there. I've felt wake boats plane out slower than our old I/O when they are heavily weighted.

i think gordons advantage is he has that 190 horse in that small boat....my current boat is a 24 ft arriva with a 454.....2000 jpounds of ballast and that thing wont even plane out.....gordons goes like a rocket....btw, its currently on boattrader if anyone is interested in buying it, sorry gordon, but your kid needs a brand new centurion buddy
