Don't use the ballest in the front, you will notice a big difference in just taking that weight out. You want all of the weight in the back and by using the ballest in the ski locker it off sets the weight that you added to the back of the boat. My dad has the same boat and that is what we do. A sack will also help with it a lot.
Chris, I have an LSV also. Here's a pic of the wake. We were running 600 in the back locker, 250 on the passenger side (port) seat, with 4 people all sitting on the port side. We were using the MLS center ballast also and no wedge.
That looks nice, is that an 04? or is the old desgin? Also why no wedge? I was thinking that having a bigger wave would help me keep going with out the rope, i cant stay on, but that might be a me problem. But yea thanks we'll try it out the next time we go.
I borrowed an 04 WLSV From My dealer. I set it up with Rear ballast filled on the starboard side, front ballast and mid filled, 800 lbs of steel plate on the starboard side and the wedge down. This did not work well for us. The swim platform was digging into the wake and cutting off half of it. Any ideas would be great. I have a 03 WVLX and get a great curl off of it.
