I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to keep my wake from rolling over so quick, it washes out about 52 ft. thanks

More weight in the boat should help. Or, going a tad bit faster or slower may change things. But for sure adding weight should help via: fat sacs. My boat used to wash out at about 60 or 65 feet so we added fat sacs to the front of the boat (I don't like an abrupt wake) and now our wake is giant and only turns over probb at 80 feet

make sure the weight is even on both sides of the boat too. I noticed I had a little wash out, and moved a guy to the other side of the back seat, it cleaned up instantly.

My boat is a 1989 18.5 ft vip. I think that it has alot of potential, just have to get the wake right.

On a Direct drive or V-drive we generally ride anywhere from 22-25 mph at 75-85 feet of rope (usually with quite a bit of weight..maybe 2k plus lbs). Your boat is a bit shorter and I'm guessing an I/O. It may not make that great of a wake that far back, but if you keep the weight even and the speed in the 22-23 range and add weight to the bow it should be OK. I don't know what kind of weight you are running, but I'd try a 500 sac filled all the way up in the front walkway for starters and go from there. It should help the boat plane out faster, too.

james just throw a 600lb sack in the bow area or soemwhere up front...then use the trim on the motor to find the sweet spot..also if you have people on board have them move around the boat once your up to speed and see the wake ..whichever side is foaming up have the person move toward that side until it cleans up and then stay there..

good luck
