900 lbs in factory ballast plus 14 people..... if they averaged 175 lbs, thats 2450 lbs for a total of 3350.

The gunnels were lowlowlow in the water & the thing was slow to get up & out of the water. And frankly I wasn't thrilled with the wake, it was big & mushy.

A tad over 4k ( people nad sacs) in an 07 22SSV. Never could get the wake dialed at that weight.

3000lbs on one side plus all the people (6 guys) except the driver. Epic surf wake no sweat I always run 2500 so this was just a bit more. The water was coming over the back of the swim pad which I'd prefer it didn't but whatever she handled it.

I have had as much as my boat can take. I think we were right around 5k or something absurd. It was butter calm with nobody around. No matter how I came off plane the bow would just kiss the water line and let in about a gallon of water. I also had to "walk" the boat out of the water to get it to plane out.

Generally I run much less, closer to an honest 3k.

This is what we ride

My supra saltere

1000lbs in the nose
300 ski locker
700 under rear seat
500left side of engine
500right side of engine
Aprox 3000 lbs of water and at least four to 6 people about 180 each for a total of 4800 lbs
This boat has a 454 and is reproped and it still struggles with that much weight

My buddies 2004 210 san
3000 lbs water and 4 people
The wake on that thing is sick my favorite so far
This boat is reproped and its awesome

My buddies 2006 tige

About 2500lbs water and usually about 8 people for a total of 3940lbs
And this boat really needs to get reproped

Note this does not include gas or gear gas weights about 6lbs per gallon when its is around 70F

And the boats handle very good as long as your trying to go in a straight line now if you try to stop or turn thatís a different story.

Its actually not a flyhigh pole, it was our first attempt at making a stripper pole. We thought it would be better in the center of the floor instead of out back.
