What kind of wake do these things put out??? I noticed they are a closed bow model does that make it hard to weight the front down evenly with the back??? How much ballast do these things need to boost??? Theres a lot of them in my area for sale at pretty good prices. Wondering if theres a better old model boat to look into or if these things work are the way to go... Any input is awesome THANKS!

As far as I know they put out a pretty good wake

and we use to have a closed bow boat and we just throw a 650lb. sac up under the bow and it filled fine and added plenty of weight... I would advise plumming a system though otherwise it might be hard to fill/empty

2000lbs makes a nice wake. I have some pictures, but not on this computer.

Best wake for the money. I've had one for going on 4 yrs and love it. Check out for all info you need on weighting, adding stereos, tower setup, etc.

They don't need alot of weight to be good . But def. get better with more.

I just got rid of mine and got a new V-drive, I must admit I love the room of the new boat but miss the old one.

Here are a couple of random pics.

As far as the front goes. I have a 440 lb fat sac in the bow. It sits more on the left side of the boat due to the way the boat is designed. I would guess I have 300lbs up front. I leave me full all the time. So far I have had no issues loading the boat on the trailer or anything. Let me know if you need any more info. Oh and I am running about 1200lbs and 4 people in those pictures. There is no weight in the back of the boat except people. You can build a nice steep wake with weighting the back. I run 2 440s beside the motor. (custom boxed enclosure w/ speakers) 300lbs in the front. I have ran 440lb in the back and it gets steep.

The 2001 Nautique throws a killer wake! I load mine down with 2 540 lb Fat Sacs next to the motor box, 400 lbs in the rear and 200 lbs in the bow. The wake is badass. If you are looking to buy one, I'm selling mine if you live anywhere around the northwest? Its a 1988 Ski Nautique 2001.
