Tried to search for it and couldn't find anything. So far this year I have been riding somewhere between 65 and 70 feet at about 23 mph with 350 lb side sacks. I am an idiot and ruined one of the sacks. If anybody know where to get a new bladder for the launch pad side sacks it would be much appreciated. I am thinking about buying 2 gethighsports 700 lb sacks and start by filling them up to 2/3 of the way and go from there. I have put 40 hours on it since I got it on the 2nd of July and the thing only had 420 when I got it. It is an 87. Also I was thinking about getting a new board. I am not all that good, wake to wake is easy and I can kind of do a grab and 180's. Do you think an absolut is too much. any other suggestions would be nice. Right now I am riding a 1998 Vero and I am pretty sure they have made some improvements to boards since then.

speed sounds fine.length too. are you going by speedo ? borrow a gps if you are. the wake should be pretty decent with that weight. how many people? if you do add more weight buy a acme 542. i used to ride a vero. i went to the parks 143/w zeus bindings. huge improvement in board technology! i rode the vero a while back its terrible on that steep of a wake. cause the rocker is so flat.

When I had my 2001 I had to 700 GHS bags on each side of the engine. Bet the covers that come with them because the have two straps that allow you to tighten them up which restricts the circumference of the bag an reduces the pressure that would normally be put on the engine cover. We also had a 400 that we didn't fill all the way behind the engine and some sand bags in the bow. We rode 65-70feet at 20-23mph. I had an acme 542 and it helped a ton. Huge difference out of the hole. We had perfect pass to.

1500 lbs (3 440's and the rest lead in the bow)
75 ft @ 23-24
I tried 80 but the wake was like a tall curb.

Uhh and you need the 542.

I bought the boat from a nautique dealer and the original prop was dinged. Instead of fixing it he just threw on a 4 blade acme. Not sure what one it is though. What are the specs of the 542. I am trying to buy some 700 lb sacks to put on each side of the motor. I am pretty sure that will be enough for my skill level. Just in case I can also throw in the 350 lb side sac I have across the back and get some sand or lead to put in the nose. I really don't think I will need that though. Oh yeah I just bought a 2006 CWB flame online and should be getting it late next week.

700 on each the wake will be huge. acme 542 is a 3 blade 13x11.5 with a .80 cup.
