I have a 2001 Moomba Mobius, LSV was not available at time of purchase. I am not sure exactly of the factory ballast weight but I think on the LSV it is around 900LBS. In my boat I have about 1000LBS in sacs and 350LBS in Sand Bags, all hidden and out of the way. I have the 310HP motor and I seem to usually have at least 7 people on the boat (4 adults and 3 kids). The motor and boat both do fine. The wake shapes up best from 21 - 23MPH.
Will water come up over the boat if you turn around quickly to pick up a rider? Well first off Please always try to slow down before turning around. Nobody likes power turners as it messes up the smooth water. If it is needed to turn quickly I do not believe you will get water in the boat. It can happen if the water is really choppy though but the more you drive the boat the more you know how to handle it in those conditions. I have not really had any problems with the spider cracks like some others have had. The tower works just as good as any, I dont think it is any shorter than others but I may be mistaken. The winshield problem has been fixed on the new 2003 models. Again this is something I have not had happen to me but I have read about people who have had this problem.
If possible try to get the Gravity Games ballast setup. Some dealers offer this from what I have heard, it is more than 900LBS. Try to get the Wake Plate and maybe Perfect Pass. These are two features I wish I would have gotten. Also if you can go for the fuel injected motor over the 310 carb. The 310 works great, but sucks a tiny bit more gas from what I am told.
For tower speakers and board racks, if you do not go with the Mako Ind items that the boat would come with check out http://www.fluidconcepts.net
They make really nice racks for the Moomba/Supra tower as well as tower speakers. The Mako Ind. stuff is nice too. As well as Boss which is very popular.
Anyway good luck with your purchase. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Ohh and by the way, Skier's Choice customer service is top notch.
