I've started with just on 400Lb fat sac in the back of the boat to the side of the rider. Compared to other wakes i've rode on doesn't seem to good. Possibly more on the side or in the front? Any help would be great.

You need way more weight. I have an 89 Malibu and I run two 350 lb sacks on the riders side, one 700 lb sac in the rear and a 400 sac in the ski locker plus as many people as possible.

We have a Tige 21i. We put 750# in place of the back seat, 800# on the surf side, and 150# in front of the engine, plus the driver.

Larry:
What year is your 21i, I have one as well. Is your 750# sac spread evenly across the back?

It is a 2001. A picture of the wave is at:

I use the 750# ProX Fat Sac. It reaches nearly from edge to edge. We shift it the few inches towards the right but it would probably be just fine in the center.

Yah, small mc ski boats, key is to get it listing to one side.

I run 600lb in the back towards side you are riding, 1 600 along that side of motor box, then 200ish in the front right in front of the motor, then a full crew....adjust crew to your liking.
