Usually there is one or more of these threads every year so i hope no one is mad at me.

Edit the picture by using paint or some other photo shop program, it has to be below a certain size and it will upload with no problem. If you right click on the pic, open with paint and then edit, stretch/skew to 50% is what I used.

yes I installed a auto ballast system over the winter 4 bags 4 pumps about 15 min for about 1400#s
not the fastest but it sure beat 1 at a time. and at 20 mph the wake is clean and big

I have a 95 hydrodyne there is no were to hide it but I used quick connects so when we are not riding all I have to do is roll the bags up and put them in storage out of the way
Old    Chris (maxx_wake)      Join Date: Sep 2003       05-10-2007, 7:32 AM Reply   
hyperlite1622, I have the exact same boat as you and I have 400lb sacks plumbed in on each side of the motor. I am planning on adding some 50lb sand bags under the bow and back seat soon though. I figure I can fit 3 bags under each side of the open bow plus another 1 in the built in ice chest for 250lbs up front and 1 bag in each of the 3 rear seat compartments. That will give me around 1300lbs total which is all I will ever need. This is going to eat up most of my storage but I think with the boards in the racks the rear locker and compartment behind the observers seat should be plenty of storage.

Also, in my last boat I built a custom bench to cover the sacks on the side of the motor so that might be an option if you want to keep it hidden.

Oh yeah, If you wanted to save even more space you could order some lead from pop products. I am too cheap to do this so that is why I am using $3 sand bags.

hey thanks chris we just got the boat back from storage the toher day so im goona look into it. Im gonna take the rear storage out and see if i can put any n there. do you have a tower or a pole? can you put pics up im gonna put mine on soon
Old    Chris (maxx_wake)      Join Date: Sep 2003       05-10-2007, 4:53 PM Reply   
You might be able to get some weight in the rear storage area but I think you would need to reinforce it, The gas tank is directly below the plastic compartment. At least that is how mine is.

Here is a picture of mine before I added the racks which I think really helped fill out the tower.

hey chris, how do you weight your supra? what is the trim plate set at? my friend has an older 23 foot supra and we have to add at least 1000 pounds to the bow just to get it down, and we cant figure out the magic configuration for a good wake. kinda frustrating

Donald- No i havent run any ballast in it yet, Sometimes i have it full of people, i have two batteries in the front, an amp, and a very heavy box for two 10" subs. I'm gonna order some of the pop-products bags to fill with either sand or lead to move around for now.

Tell me how it goes with side sacks, i should have them by now but i'm broke. Me and my best friend arent that good anyway so i don't think were missing out that much.

Kevin, see my post a little ways above where I posted the picture for how I weight my boat. My trim plate isnt adjustable but I have the bars cranked up a little bit so it is bent slightly upward. I think I have the left side bent up just a little more than the right side which helps to clean up both sides of the wake. Or it could be the other way around, I cant really remember. With that being said I dont think the hull of my boat and the 23 footer are very similar so your set up might need to be completely differnt than mine.

Jon, how hard was it for you to remove the rainbow stickers? Any tips? I have about half of mine off using a heat gun and goo gone but it has been a real pain so far.
Old    Donald Hill (dh03r6)      Join Date: Mar 2007       05-11-2007, 8:29 AM Reply   
chris that seems to be the best way to do it, it took me forever. i did find if you peel off the sticker the let the adhesive sit it will dry out and you can scrape it off with a flat plastic surface.

Ok thanks, I was hoping you had a simpler way but I guess it is back to the elbow grease method. haha.

You probably already know this but the way I read the add on those graphics is that the lettering only comes in the blue color shown and you can choose the background color. Just fyi in case you were thinking about different color lettering.

Old    Jon Shaffer (jpshaff01)      Join Date: Jun 2005       05-11-2007, 2:34 PM Reply   
Chris- yeah i read the sticker thing the same way too. But yeah the best way to get the decals off is probably heat and the 1 1/2 inch plastic scraper from the hardware store, just get like a 1" section big enough to pull at a 90 degree angle. I used a hair dryer at some point and heated a length of it to get it to peel evenly, you'll get better at getting bigger sections off at once lol. The key is not heating it too much so it will all peel off with most the adhesive too. Some of the stripes are easier to get off. The sun is your friend, if you get one side of the boat baking in the sun they will come off way easier and you won't have to heat it. (But those are the days you usually wanna use it)

Nacho- yeah i think i will go with black i was in between. My boat came with the tower, its called a typhoon tower. The only thing i like about it is the way the boards sit in the racks on a downward angle.

cool man, looks good! I wish I had gone with the polished instead of the black tower. I really like the looks of the black but the powder coat/spraypaint on that tower is really crappy. Other than that it is an awesome tower for the price.

I like the look without the stickers. Mine is still a work in progress. A few more hours and I should have them all off. lol.

Do you run any ballast in your boat? If so what is your set-up?

Cool, I have a 400lb V-drive sac on either side of the motor and the wake is actually pretty nice with just that but I am hoping to add another 500lbs in sand or lead sometime soon. I think the boat should handle the weight you are talking about just fine but you might need a little more than the 250 up front if you are running 1200 in the back.
Old    Ryan Berka (ryansgt)      Join Date: Aug 2006       05-17-2007, 9:35 AM Reply   
yeah, i was thinking so too. the problem is the area under the bow doesn't fit any fat sack dimensions under the seats and i don't really wanna lose all my bow seating. i will probably have to just fill the sofa partially until i find a solution. either that or just invite some of the ballast level girls along for the front. heh

i am gonna have build a carpeted wall to cover the back after i remove the seat. also need something to mount the pad over the rear locker to. i think a plywood wall cut to the dimensions and marine carpeted will work fine. i like the idea of slamming this old girl because it has a nicely shaped wake.
