I've got an 86 Ski Nautique and I'm having a hard time finding the pocket on my boat as well. I'm surfing the Landlock, but don't think the boat has enough wake behind it.
Somebody has got to have a good weighting for the old Skis. We've had the best luck putting weight not only up front, but also on both sides. Seems like with the boat being as skinny as it is you need to drive the entire boat into the water or else the wake pops up too close to the stern.
Anybody have a good setup?
