Im fairly new to the forum and was wondering if any of you have any suggestions for weighting an 05 Malibu Wakesetter Xti (21ft). The boat has the 340 monsoon, 500lb centre bag as well as the old school wedge. I have tried several weighting configurations last summer and am trying to get the wake as similar to the 05-08 VLX as I can. I realize being a direct drive alot of that weight is shifted forward, unlike the VLX, however I am determined to try and get the wake as big as I can while still having some room for people to sit. I compete and just want to try and get my wake shaped better for this summer!
My current set up is
250lb bow bag
500lb MLS in Ski locker
2x Fly high fatbricks in the rear wrap around area (310lbs total)
250 under rear starboard wrap around
250 in lead under port wrap around seat
2-4 people in back wrap around area
Its hard finding any more room to add weight without taking up peoples seating but if anyone thinks I should shift some weight or remove some bow weight I would appreciate hearing from you.
here is a pic of the current wake with less ballast than listed above, riding about 22.6 mph
