Brian,
I would suggest adding a couple of bags either in the center of the boat or one in the bow and one in the stern. The goal is to displace the hull a little deeper in the water to increase the size and create a more solid wake. I have a little MasterCraft ProStar 190 that we wakeskate behind and I noticed a big difference with 600 to 900 lbs. of ballast. The wake might be small but it has good pop and the transitions are smooth.
Thanks,
Spencer

Might want to Roy w rope lengths too to hemp the meatiest part. When I had a bayliner I switched over to a flex board cuz there is tons of stuff you can do without a big wake, slides and etc.

Brian,

Look into getting a Fat Sac. Depending on your boats layout, if you lay a couple hundred pound fat sac down the center of you boat with the majority of the sac cheated towards the back, it'll make a pretty big difference. you can play with it further from there.

What kind of boat?


Look into these....

It all depends on how much space you have/ how much you are willing to give up for ballast.
Without knowing much about your boat, I would say a good starting point would be ~250# in each rear locker and a sack the will fit in the walkway of your bow that you can fine tune. Plumbing will all depend on how involved you want to get...

click on step 1

this will help you to decide where it is best to add the weight.

If you are on a budget, then Aerial makes a cheap bag...but you get what you pay for. I have one of them and I only use it when I need additional weight.
