well this isnt really slammed. but its the most weight we have ever had in out boat.

we had about 1600 lbs of water.
then 6 people in the boat
its the biggest our wake has ever been.
considering its a 22 foot sea ray, i dont think its to bad at all mike powell had no problem throwing some scarecrows tantrums, 3's and some huge backrolls

Twitch, are you talking about the all black one? That is a good pic as well. I want to see some slammed xstars as well. They just look so sexy on the water when slammed.

Keller- thats painful to look at, especially when you see all the effort that went into customizing that 2001.
Old    Chase Tillett (tn_rider)      Join Date: Dec 2009       02-01-2010, 4:41 PM Reply   
thats ALOT of weight in the back of that 2001 you would think the wake would be kind of soft with not much weight in the front.

Evan, how long is your Prostar? We did the same thing to my 17.5' Bayliner, best wake we ever got behind it.

Someone mentioned in the other thread that they were taking on water but I think the picture makes it look a lot worse than it actually is. If he has some extra weight in the boat with 7 people it doesn't take much to get the bow under water. Plus from the picture it looks like he is in the trough of the wake so the bow is under water and the rear is close.

Wow. Those guys in the malibu are retarded. JUMP OUT OF THE BOAT, and let the drive get it on shore!

That picture is from a guy on the Malibu Crew. He said the boat was just fine and it was not loaded or in purpose.

Thw way the water goes over the front of the boat looks very photo-shopped to me.

I had the exact thing happen to me last year at Seafair. I was out in an 83 prostar and yacht passed me going maybe 7 knots. The wake it was throwing wasn't huge but when his second wake caught me it pushed the nose down straight into the wave and water came over the bow. It probably looked crazy to the people around me but it really wasn't that big of a deal.
Old    Chase Tillett (tn_rider)      Join Date: Dec 2009       02-02-2010, 4:47 PM Reply   
One of the guys we ride with has a sportster and we put a sack where the back seat is one on each side of engine and a sack in the bow plus 2-3 people. and when the rider falls and we stop to pick them up the bow does that every time.

Ya, but notice the barefooter boom sticking out. Why would you weight a boat down for barefooting? That can't be on purpose...

i did that to my 2001 on a few occations, where water didnt come over the winshield but did creep up and the only thing between us and a whole bunch of water was the windshield. thats what low freeboard closed bow boats do. open bow would be full of water

I have a 2000 MB DD. When I am loaded and have a few people in my boat I can dip the rub rail on the bow in the water if I come off plane to fast. When the wake catches up to the back of the boat it lifts the stern and will dip the front. I generally can't have anyone sit in the bow for the same reason.

Also can be scary when the wind comes up on our lake and every second wave is comin over the bow. Can't wait to get a new boat one day so I don't have to worry about it so much.

In a closed bow it is fun to take water over the bow. I do it all the time on purpose to soak the people sitting in the observers seat.

This is the answer from the owner of the "slammed" Malibu Echelon discussed above. It was discussed over at the Malibucrew.

"That happened with no ballast either. But I did have 7 people in the boat. Which is why I was going to tell you to take it easy on the weight. I was idling along, no problem, stern got lifted by a wave and the same time another wave was coming. Wrong place, wrong time, not really sure but it happened really quickly and if I wasn't an experience driver it probaby would have gotten really ugly. I was able to put it in reverse and the water came to the top of the windshield, but not over it.

It doesn't take long for these lower boats to to fill up. I'v seen it"

Don't got a pic, but when my fatha came around to pick me up once, a loaded X-Star came by, and the two wakes put the whole bow under and the rest filled up nice too.

Yup, that's the famous Robert Mitchell photo.

I'd post a picture, but we run stock ballast only per manufactures recomendations.

That was FUNNY Evan....I spit out some soda when I read that.

And I don' count a boat going through another wave or coming off plane, It's legit when it is sitting still or turning around ! I have a pic of my Moomba slowing down and the thing looks slammed and it only had stock ballast....Not the same as Slammed inmy book.

To me, Johns boat is my fav! It's not sunk to the rub rails but it has the best looking wake IMO! I LOVE that old 210 wake! I see alot of these boats slammed but where are the wake pics to follow? Let's see the outcome of these slammed boats!

I'll play:

1976 Vanguard with a fly high fat seat (~800 pounds) and the front fuel tank (~200 pounds) of ballast. Then add 700 pounds of riders, plus 4 full jerry cans, 4 wakeboards, a skate, and other miscellaneous gear and we were over 2000 pounds in the poor thing!


for some reason it won't let me embed the picture....if someone else can or let me know what I'm doing wrong that would be great.

This Thread makes me happy. Jay your xstar ballast set up looks familiar, if you cant see the floor your ready to wake board. Love the old 205 wake.

PSA: I dont approve of this all......ballast responsibly
