finally finished the rival install
posted on the boats thread
can anyone help me clean my wake up?
1) factory BU ski locker ballast
2) 400lbs in bow
3) 450 in side isle...port side center
4) 400 lbs center rear....where the icechest was
5) however heavy a fat brick is...200 I think...on left rear seat
6) 100lbs of kids
7) 300 lbs of 2 adults including driver

not a bad wake, but it seems to roll over close to the boat is regular side, I think Bu's do better goofy side

I thought Bu's do better on the regular side? The people riding need to be on the port side of the boat. XTI is a true inboard, more weight towards the back port side the better. Entrust likes to ride about 9.3-9.5 in his boat, I like to ride 10-11 in mine. Try 9-12 and figure out what's best. I'm guessing faster will be better. Some people disagree but I'm a believer in a big left hand circle to create a nice clean wave...

I think you need get the boat to lean more to the port side. I've posted about my ballast set up a few times. On my boat the foam on top of the wake cleans up when the rub rail gets in to the water.

Don't get in a hurry to free ride, hold the rope for a while. learn to pump the board with your legs. pumping helps you build speed to get back in the pocket.

i really think you need less weight in the nose, a heavy nose can cause the wake to flatten out. i would pull that 400# bag out the bow

not a very good picture, but...
was really a great goofy side wake today
especially with only 2 people...the surfer and the driver
and I didn't fill the bow ballast...the wake seemed to break further away
thanks for the help
looking forward to trying it with a full crew
and on the regular side
wish I had a better picture
