We took this boat out for the first time this year. We put a 350# sac in the rear port locker, a 540# sac in the floor on the port side, and a 250# sac in the bow on the port side, plus the factory ballast which is rear and mid-ship. There is only 2 people in the boat and I thought the wake was nice. It could only get better with some more people. Please excuse pic quality it is a camera phone.
