i just came up on a '01 21ft. nautique direct drive with 80 hours on it. I have 2 250 lbs. fat sacks on each side of the engine but the wake still isnt much. Just wondering if anyone has an comments on weighting a direct drive. Price is not a problem.

I have a 95 Sport Nautique DD which is similar. I put a "tube" sac 9x12x62 in the floor ski locker and one on each side of the engine. I had the bigger sacs a few years ago that i used (on the sides of the engine) however they took up too much room in the boat for my tastes. I also have another tube sac that i partially fill under the rear seat. I believe you have a trunk... you could stash one or both of those small sacs you have in there and put sacs on the sides next to the engine. You could also put the sacs in the trunk, one tube sac laying in front of the back seat and one in the ski locker, this configuration will give you more space to walk however i think you will want more weight.

the 250s on the side are not enough, step up to the 440s from launch

what type hull are we talking here? I had a good friend with an 01 Air Nauty that was direct drive and we couldn't get it to throw a decent wake no matter how much ballast we put in.
