Has anyone dialed in the proper weighting for a centurion elite-v? port side and starbord side? Sometimes I get a really good curl...other times not. I have the hydraulic trim tab and the wake seems to be best at about 80% tab down. I usually run 250 to 300 lbs in the bow. 200 lbs in each locker and an additional 200 to 300 lbs on the side we surf.

I had an '04 Lightning, I think that's the same hull - 21.6 boat length, right? Difficult to bring in on the goofy side for sure. Get the boat to list hard. Move weight as far outboard as possible. You're using lots of trim tab, that helps.

I wouldn't put any weight in the port locker.

My best wake was with altered tracking fins and a lot of weight. The altered tracking fins made driving the boat a B*tch. Eventually I just removed the tracking fins for a good enough solution. Note your boat will sink if you don't plug the tracking fin bolt holes.

750 in the rear locker 400 under the port bench and 250 in the bow. Every one on board on the surf side. I dont have a trim tab or a working speedo but around 2300 rpm's

Thanks Guys, I will give your suggestions a try this weekend. Looks like both wakes are pretty clean.
